The Leftovers: Season 2 - A Matter of Geography (TV Episode)
The Walking Dead: Season 6 - First Time Again (TV Episode)
""First Time Again" is an example of everything you want in a season premiere of The Walking Dead. It is a big, splashy affair that touches on the interpersonal conflicts as much as it does the bigger picture stuff. "
Doctor Who: Season 9 - Before the Flood (TV Episode)
""Before the Flood" should be commended for being willing to toy with certain ideas, and for exposing a confounding truth involving its protagonists that might afford the season an interesting avenue to explore. "

Fargo: Season 1 - A Fox, a Rabbit and a Cabbage (TV Episode)
Fargo: Season 1 - The Heap (TV Episode)
"And for a series that has thus far built a compelling tale around the notion that, if given the right circumstances, anything can and will happen, the idea that sometimes things just work out sounds just about right. "
Fargo: Season 1 - Who Shaves the Barber? (TV Episode)
"Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele's very funny appearance as Agent Budge and Agent... demonstrate how unaware those in a position of authority are when it comes to everything that is and has transpired with regard to Malvo and Lester. "
Fargo: Season 1 - Buridan's Ass (TV Episode)
"It's a testament to the show that, with everything else that's going on, 'Buridan's Ass' manages to make Lester's temporary escape from the hospital and subsequent planting of evidence... more than just an ancillary incident to pass the time. "

The Knick: Season 1 - Crutchfield (TV Episode)
The Knick: Season 1 - The Golden Lotus (TV Episode)

The Knick: Season 1 - Working Late a Lot (TV Episode)
"It's a testament to the directorial prowess of Soderbergh, then, that he can switch gears from the hectic turmoil of last week's racially charged mob violence to something as intimate and single-minded as 'Working Late a Lot.' "
The Knick: Season 1 - Get the Rope (TV Episode)
"In the end, the conclusion to 'Get the Rope' presents The Knick with so many new story possibilities that the ungainliness of how certain threads were handled is outweighed by the benefits they bring to the overall narrative. "
The Knick: Season 1 - Start Calling Me Dad (TV Episode)
The Knick: Season 1 - They Capture the Heat (TV Episode)
"The Knick is still a bit of a circus built around a large group of characters it doesn't entirely seem to know what to do with, episodes like this help to better define them and point toward individual arcs that factor more concretely in the narrative. "
The Knick: Season 1 - Where's the Dignity? (TV Episode)
"While it stumbles around in a few places and makes some regrettable choices in dialogue, 'Where's the Dignity?' is at least commendable for working so hard to define the narrative's core relationships as well as the characters in them. "
The Knick: Season 1 - The Busy Flea (TV Episode)
The Knick: Season 1 - Mr. Paris Shoes (TV Episode)
"It's a satisfying second episode that plays off the premiere's set-up quite well, while also demonstrating where the series' storytelling strengths are. Unsurprisingly, the majority of those strengths are evident through Soderbergh's meticulous eye. "

The Leftovers: Season 2 (TV, 2015)

Homeland: Season 5 - Separation Anxiety (TV Episode)
The Leftovers: Season 2 - Axis Mundi (TV Episode)

The Affair: Season 2 - Episode 1 (TV Episode)
Fear the Walking Dead: Season 1 - The Good Man (TV Episode)
"If Fear the Waking Dead got anything right during its brief, six-episode first season, it would be the idea that the end of the world may unite everyone on Earth, but the story lies in the individual experiences that are still dramatically different. "
Doctor Who: Season 9 - Under the Lake (TV Episode)
"Writer Toby Whithouse successfully expands the mystery at the episode's core in such a way a continuation feels more like something the story earned, rather than an obligation to perfunctorily expand the scope of a tale that doesn't necessarily need it. "
