"Not having seen the original, it's hard to compare the two series, but the American version seems bloated. Shockers are tossed out here and there, but there is little connective tissue in the story. "

Orange is the New Black: Season 2 (TV, 2014)
"Obviously, [it] has plenty of stories to tell, and Cohan and her crew can be wildly entertaining at times even when going to the darkest places. Someday, the show might seem claustrophobic, but for now, the possibilities are wide open. "
The Escape Artist: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
The Musketeers: Season 1 (TV, 2014)
"While the sword-fighting is not exactly imaginatively staged, it is violently convincing, and so is the The Musketeers. With solid production values, it has set itself up to tell an old tale in a fun, entertaining way. "

The Strain: Season 1 (TV, 2014)
"One of the best things that the show has going for it is Stoll, a fine actor who usually shines in secondary roles, as he did on the first season of House of Cards. Here, he gets to be heroic and it suits him well. "
Masters of Sex: Season 2 (TV, 2014)
Manhattan Love Story: Season 1 (TV, 2014)
"A lot will depend on how much you like the stars (they are cute enough) and how clever and insightful the banter seems. There seems little else to propel the series forward. All this inner monologue is a little wearing, though. "

"The two big aerial sequences are particularly accomplished, thanks in no small part to the ingenious work of cinematographer Roger Deakins and a battalion of brilliant designers and practical/digital effects technicians. "
The Interview (2014)
The Zero Theorem (2014)
"Qohen and Bainsley are quirkily interesting though being little more than cyphers. And as in any Gilliam picture, there are some crazy flights of fancy, but this one is never grounded enough to come alive. "
