100% Roots: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "The pain Roots dramatizes also still feels unfortunately relevant, when cries of discrimination and racism remain very much in the news. It may be historical drama, but Roots is a reminder that black-and-white divides in the U.S. aren't history. " ‐ Oregonian

88% Doctor Thorne: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "If you're still clutching your handkerchief and missing Downton Abbey, you could do worse than Doctor Thorne. " ‐ Oregonian

100% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 4 "Judging from Sunday's Episode 4, "Book of the Stranger," being free from Martin's volumes is the best thing that's happened to "Game of Thrones" in years. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted May 16, 2016
91% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 2 "At the end of "Home," Episode 2 in Season 6, fans got their wish. After Melisandre's ritual of resurrection, it at first looked as though her efforts weren't successful. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted May 2, 2016
92% The Night Manager: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "The Night Manager combines luxurious production with razor-sharp writing, and it's brought to life by a brilliant cast, headed by Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie. " ‐ Oregonian

79% Confirmation "What keeps Confirmation watchable are vivid performances by a terrific cast. Washington - freed from the overacting mandate that seems part of the Scandal cast playbook - is subtle and moving as Hill. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Apr 15, 2016
100% Jackie Robinson: Season One (TV, 2016) "Robinson lived a historic life. But the achievement of Jackie Robinson is that it shows us the man in full dimension, placing him in rich context. " ‐ Oregonian

47% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 16 "It takes a lot to end the worst "The Walking Dead" season ever with a finale that was even worse than what's come before. How bad was "Last Day on Earth"? Let's count the ways. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Apr 4, 2016
53% The Ranch: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "All in all, though, The Ranch isn't a show we necessarily needed Netflix to give us. But if you've given up on broadcast TV and yearn for new takes on old-style sitcoms, with R-rated jokes, Netflix is there for you. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Mar 30, 2016
80% The Path: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The Path just misses being as profound as it wants to be, but remains watchable largely thanks to the superb cast. " ‐ Oregonian

80% 11.22.63: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It's totally far-fetched, but the roles are so well-cast and the 1960s texture so evocatively re-created... that 11.22.63 makes the trip back in time both suspenseful and enjoyable. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Feb 15, 2016
97% The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The superb cast... and high quality of the writing and directing... make The People v. O.J. Simpson engaging, enraging, and essential. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jan 29, 2016
72% Mercy Street: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It would be more exciting if it took more chances. But it's an earnest effort, and reminds us that all that compelling stories don't need to be told with an English accent. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Jan 15, 2016
73% Billions: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It may not be subtle, but thanks to razor-sharp writing, and dynamic performances by Giamatti... and everyone in the strong cast, Billions is dark, edgy and outrageously entertaining. " ‐ Oregonian

Posted Dec 4, 2015
80% Saints & Strangers: Season 1 (TV, 2015) " It's good to see Kartheiser flex different acting muscles as he shows how Bradford clings to his religious belief not for moral superiority, but as an essential tool for survival. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Dec 3, 2015
53% Into the Badlands: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's refreshing -- for a while -- to watch combatants flying through the air instead of just reaching for a gun. But unless the writing shapes up, the sound most likely to accompany Into the Badlands will be viewers clicking on their remotes. " ‐ Oregonian

88% W/ Bob and David: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Breaking Bad fans who only know Odenkirk as sleazy lawyer extraordinaire Saul Goodman are in for a treat, as Odenkirk's versatility and chemistry with Cross are as sharp as ever. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Nov 5, 2015
100% Master of None: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Master of None is a warmer, sweeter show than Louie often is, and it's less cynical than a raft of other comedies on TV and elsewhere. " ‐ Oregonian
Posted Nov 5, 2015
No Score Yet The Librarians: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "On the plus side, the cast has solid chemistry, they all seem to be having fun, and don't take any of this more seriously than they need to. " ‐ Oregonian

59% Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll comes off as Leary's Dad band, the TV equivalent of getting together with your classic rock-loving friends, and doing some serious shredding, man. They seem to be having a great time, but that doesn't mean viewers will. " ‐ Oregonian
