The Walking Dead: Season 6 - Start to Finish (TV Episode)
"Most of that peril is handled off screen. It's as though the show is just working its way toward something it is far more interested in revealing, so it puts forth as little effort as possible until it can make that reveal. "
Doctor Who: Season 9 - Heaven Sent (TV Episode)
"A near-perfect hour of Doctor Who that has all the attributes of a superb standalone episode, but instead works to make the previous hour more meaningful while also establishing the stakes upon which the season will end. "

Doctor Who: Season 9 - The Zygon Invasion (TV Episode)

Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: By Fire (TV Episode)
"This storyline did a solid job of continuing to establish that, while she is clearly a delinquent, Selina still has some affection for those she cares about, nicely setting up the anti-heroine side of Catwoman's future. "
The Walking Dead: Season 6 - Thank You (TV Episode)

"The episode makes good use of its weightier elements, using them to underline the indescribable loneliness of being the Doctor or Ashildr, and the pain that comes from knowing the finitude of everyone around you. "

The Walking Dead: Season 6 - JSS (TV Episode)
Doctor Who: Season 9 - The Girl Who Died (TV Episode)
