Happyish: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
" It's an episode filled with reunions and character intersections, new leadership configurations and unexpected challenges to those who felt their power was absolute. It's also a ton of fun, when it isn't being horrifying or just plain sad. "
Mad Men: Season 7 - The Forecast (TV Episode)
" In an earlier year, "The Forecast" would feel like a perfectly acceptable third episode of a "Mad Men" season. With so little runway left in the season, and series, it almost feels designed to suggest a show that's as uncertain about its future as Don. "
Game of Thrones: Season 5 - The Wars to Come (TV Episode)
" One of the episode's most stunning images involves the toppling of the Harpy statue atop the pyramid in Meereen, which evokes many incidents from history both recent and ancient of conquerors taking down a symbol of the previous regime. "
Mad Men: Season 7 - New Business (TV Episode)
" The craft of the show has been so strong... that I haven't been particularly bothered by Don's inability to grow. "New Business," though, was an episode so frustrating - and, with few exceptions, dull - that I could for once see that point of view. "

Woman in Gold (2015)
Better Call Saul: Season 1 - Pimento (TV Episode)
" Among the many amazing aspects of the final scene of "Pimento" - as powerful in its own way as Mike's breakdown at the end of "Five-O" - is that it hit like a ton of bricks even though I had seen most of it coming. "
The Walking Dead: Season 5 - Conquer (TV Episode)
Kill Me Three Times (2015)
Better Call Saul: Season 1 - RICO (TV Episode)
" The more I've watched this season, the more I've come to view that predestined quality as a feature, not a bug. We know where Jimmy and Mike will be six years into their future. The "what" isn't the important part of Better Call Saul. The "why" is. "

The Gunman (2015)
" Morel may have some of the world's greatest actors are on hand for the proceedings, but he isn't creative enough to use their talents to effectively elevate the screenplay to something that transcends the genre. "
Empire: Season 1 - Die But Once (TV Episode)
" Cookie preparing to smother Lucious with a pillow, intercut with Hudson singing gospel, was such a perfect synthesis of everything that was fun about this show that I can't imagine a better ending to its first season. "
Empire: Season 1 - Who I Am (TV Episode)
Bloodline: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
" It's the shenanigans with the timeline - and the way they tend to illustrate how ultimately hollow the characters are, even with these superb actors playing them... that won't have me racing to finish the rest of the first Bloodline season anytime soon. "
iZombie: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Undateable: Season 2 (TV, 2015)
One Big Happy: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
" Basically every punchline involving Cuthbert's character revolves around her being a lesbian and having lesbian footwear and clothes and interests. If there's any additional room for Cuthbert-generated punchlines, they involve her OCD or neatness. "
Community: Season 6 (TV, 2015)
" Shows get older. It happens. That said, I laughed, I was happy to see Abed and Britta and everyone else, and I'm hopeful that the newbies will become as quickly assimilated into the group as Buzz and Duncan were last season. "
Better Call Saul: Season 1 - Bingo (TV Episode)
" No, "Five-O" didn't signal a radical shift of what "Better Call Saul" is going to look like. But when the show's regular mode is this funny and slick and well put-together, I don't need - or even want - my heart to be torn out of my chest every week. "
The Walking Dead: Season 5 - Spend (TV Episode)
Powers: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
" It drives Copley's performance into a really mannered and angst-ridden direction, it makes Deena Pilgrim... into an afterthought, and it leads to every single emotional and thematic arc of the show being over-articulated. "
Better Call Saul: Season 1 - Five-O (TV Episode)
The Walking Dead: Season 5 - Forget (TV Episode)
Jupiter Ascending (2015)
" Fast, frequently teetering on the cusp of the ridiculous, and eye-poppingly pretty, Jupiter Ascending is a wicked slice of entertainment, and a heck of an antidote to the typical February box-office blahs. "
The Returned (US): Season 1 (TV, 2015)
" Because Cuse and producer Raelle Tucker have copied the thin substance and not the rich style of their French predecessors, "The Returned" will likely feel like an uninspired imitation of something to anyone watching. "
Dig: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
" it's terrific: a comedy so funny and silly and brimming with unexpected jokes that after an episode and a half, I stopped taking notes altogether because I wanted nothing to distract me from the experience of it. "
American Crime: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
