Homeland: Season 5 - The Litvinov Ruse (TV Episode)
The Walking Dead: Season 6 - Start to Finish (TV Episode)
"This episode makes it seem like the Ricketeers are the only ones in the town, while everyone else was out getting groceries or something. It's a noticeable absence, especially with Alexandria itself under attack "

"The Affair always features fantastic acting (Joshua Jackson and Dominic West are especially impressive this week), and it's almost a sigh of relief to get an uncomplicated look at the lives of these characters. "
Doctor Who: Season 9 - Heaven Sent (TV Episode)
"As we all reel back from the last episode, you could forgive the writers for giving us a more subdued episode. Instead, they pull all the stops out, giving Peter Capaldi a one-man show that changes everything we thought we knew about the Doctor. "
Fargo: Season 2 - Did you do this? No, you did it! (TV Episode)
"The complex emotions at play, as well as some truly heart-warming moments... helped make "Did You Do This? No, You Did It!" a welcome return to form for "Fargo," which had dipped a bit in excitement and emotional attachment over the past two weeks. "
"Tukel invests most of his narrative making terrible people objects of ridicule, with a final punchline suggesting that, in the game of life, everyone's stuck on one side or the other of the same bad joke. "

The Leftovers: Season 2 - International Assassin (TV Episode)
Homeland: Season 5 - All About Allison (TV Episode)
Doctor Who: Season 9 - Face the Raven (TV Episode)

The Art of More: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Marvel's Jessica Jones: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"Jessica Jones is well-executed on the level we've come to expect from Netflix-produced series, featuring a top-notch cast, solid writing and great use of its New York location to invoke both classic noir and '70s cinema. "
"The final shot once again turns the story over to the contours of Krisha's face and the shades of emotional ambiguity conveyed by it. The uncertainties that define her existence are as riveting as they are tragic. "
A Very Murray Christmas (2015)
Fargo: Season 2 - Rhinoceros (TV Episode)
Homeland: Season 5 - Oriole (TV Episode)
Janis: Little Girl Blue (2015)
"The film is tasked with cramming an entire life into the minimum of time, and it often comes up short when it comes to canny explorations and richer examinations of both Joplin's individual life and her greater legacy. "
The Walking Dead: Season 6 - Always Accountable (TV Episode)
"Trio member Tina's decision to place flowers on two dead bodies that, surprise, aren't so dead after all... might be one of the dumbest moves made by any character in The Walking Dead, and that's saying something. "
The Leftovers: Season 2 - A Most Powerful Adversary (TV Episode)
The Affair: Season 2 - 7 (TV Episode)
"It's one of two incredibly tense and intense dinner scenes in this episode, which reveal so much about the characters involved - things that have been repressed for far too long - and leads to maybe one of the series's best installments yet. "
W/ Bob and David: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"Cross also performs to the peak of his abilities, but it's worth noting that all these years Odenkirk has spent playing in premium dramas... There's a nuance and depth to his acting here... that elevates things to a new plane of quality. "

Master of None: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"At a time when diversity in television is the hot topic in entertainment, how fitting it is for a show like Master of None to pop up and serve as the ideal example of what a unique voice can bring to the table. "
Fargo: Season 2 - Fear and Trembling (TV Episode)
"We almost expect [Otto] to get up out of his chair and whack every last one of them, physical impossibilites be damned. And he just might, but until then, he remains a quiet force to be reckoned with. "
Homeland: Season 5 - Better Call Saul (TV Episode)
"The last shot of the episode may not have had much of a payoff - we know Quinn's not going to die, and, even if we didn't, that would be the most infuriating way to kill of a well-liked character - but reuniting Carrie and Saul was immediately satisfying. "
The Leftovers: Season 2 - No Room at the Inn (TV Episode)
The Walking Dead: Season 6 - Here's Not Here (TV Episode)
Doctor Who: Season 9 - The Zygon Invasion (TV Episode)

The Affair: Season 2 - 5 (TV Episode)
"Helen's blunt assessment of her now ex-husband - provided for Alison's benefit - is full of barbs, but this is the line that lingers with me: "And then you become the enemy, just because you know who he is." "
Ash vs. Evil Dead: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"Watching the production come up with crazy kills and challenging set pieces is nearly as fun as hearing Ash's continuous wisecracking, making "Ash vs. Evil Dead" quite possibly the most fun you can find on television. "
Fargo: Season 2 - The Myth of Sisyphus (TV Episode)
"Yet it takes a great deal of skill for an actor to switch gears like that while maintaining consistency within the character. Wilson stealthily navigated the transition, adding sufficient confidence to courageous words, making them spark with life. "
