4/5 92% Game of Thrones: Season 6 (TV, 2016) "The hour-long season opener delivered a few minor surprises and emphatically bloody demises but mostly went very efficiently about the business of setting the stage for the mayhem that will inevitably follow in the weeks and episodes to come. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press

4/5 92% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 1 "The hour-long season opener delivered a few minor surprises and emphatically bloody demises but mostly went very efficiently about the business of setting the stage for the mayhem that will inevitably follow in the weeks and episodes to come. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Apr 25, 2016
92% Veep: Season 5 (TV, 2016) "Veep can still contribute something of value to a pop-culture landscape in which noxious reality has finally out-crazied fictional satire: A much, much better class of insults. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Apr 22, 2016
2.5/5 40% Flaked: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Arnett has always shown a knack for uncomfortable comedy; in this case, the discomfort is in the forefront and the humour is way, way at the back of the room. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Mar 10, 2016
100% Full Frontal With Samantha Bee: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Calling hers a much-needed female voice is faint-praise damnation, however. Bee's voice might fit that description, but it's also so much more - sharp, educated, engaged, enraged, comedically fearless and strategically profane. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Feb 12, 2016
64% The X-Files: Season 10 (TV, 2016) "The truth is the real fun of renewing acquaintances with Fox Mulder and Dana Scully lies out there somewhere just beyond the TV series reboot's first episode. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Jan 22, 2016
70% Baskets: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It's one of those intriguing and addictive shows that could succeed without ever really taking its viewers anywhere, if only it would make them feel a bit more welcome on the journey. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Jan 19, 2016
73% Billions: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "As a showpiece for two heavyweight actors trading an endless series of vicious verbal haymakers, Billions is definitely worthy of a ringside-seat investment of a few TV-watching hours. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Jan 14, 2016
30% Second Chance: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Second Chance, a new Fox drama that puts a clumsily updated spin on the timeless Frankenstein saga, with a storyline and character roster that are unlikely to prompt anyone, anywhere, to shout, "It's ALIVE!" " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Jan 13, 2016
82% F Is for Family: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It isn't exactly brilliant, but for fans of animated comedy that skews toward blunt-force subversive, F is for Family will be welcomed as an amusing and easily binge-able collection. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Dec 17, 2015
97% Making a Murderer: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's a stunning story, told very effectively in a no-frills style that employs no narration, dramatic re-enactments or digital effects. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Dec 17, 2015
78% A Very Murray Christmas (2015) "A Very Murray Christmas is a show that only a Bill Murray fan could love. But here's the thing: is there anybody who's not, on some level, in some secretly tickle-susceptible corner of their being a Bill Murray fan? " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Dec 3, 2015
93% Marvel's Jessica Jones: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Jessica Jones offers a challenging, highly addictive, unquestionably binge-worthy alternative that might be the comic-book company's best TV effort to date. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Nov 19, 2015
96% Orange is the New Black: Season 3 (TV, 2015) "Despite a development early in Season 3 that could bring big changes to Litchfield, it's safe to say that this prison's population will be locked up by Netflix for as long as possible -- with absolutely no time off for excellent scripted-series behaviour. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Nov 17, 2015
53% Into the Badlands: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "With the energetic and entertaining Into the Badlands, the network stands a better-than-even chance of staking its claim to another niche audience that will flock to a series that showcases the kind of action they've seldom seen on the small screen. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Nov 16, 2015
61% Flesh and Bone: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Flesh and Bone could have been so much more. Its producers got the most difficult part right -- the dancing -- and then somehow forgot that even the most artful display of balletic beauty needs to be underpinned by a credible, workable storyline. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Nov 11, 2015
28% Agent X: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The series boasts an impressive cast but its dramatic narrative is so preposterous and its presentation is so clumsy that it's likely to provoke a laugh-out-loud reaction its creators clearly never sought or expected. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Nov 11, 2015
100% Master of None: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Aziz Ansari's Netflix series reflects millennial life... and it delivers a bunch of smiley emojis. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Nov 6, 2015
97% Show Me a Hero: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "There are some fine performances and intriguing storylines in this deliberately paced and ultimately engaging series. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Oct 26, 2015
16% Wicked City: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Nobody's likely to describe this as great television, but Wicked City is a solid, well-delivered cops-and-crime drama that compares favourably to anything else in the genre the major U.S. broadcast networks are offering. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Oct 26, 2015
97% Supergirl: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Supergirl is a heroine -- and a show -- worth cheering for. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Oct 22, 2015
95% Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a solid, appealing and consistently laugh-out-loud funny comedy. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Oct 14, 2015
100% Fargo: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Fargo's second-season effort demands a place at the top of your must-see list. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Oct 12, 2015
96% Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The new CW comedy arrives with a title that will amuse some and possibly offend others, and a premise and game plan that are as unconventional as they are inventively energetic. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Oct 8, 2015
68% Grandfathered: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's actually a watchable half-hour, but at the end, one is left wondering what Grandfathered could possibly have left to say. All the available jokes have been told, and Jimmy's the changed man that he necessarily had to become. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Sep 29, 2015
93% The Grinder: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Lowe is very strong in the title role, making full use of the comedy chops and timing that made him a welcome addition to the Parks and Recreation cast, and Savage is a great fit as the stay-at-home brother. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Sep 29, 2015
78% The Daily Show With Trevor Noah: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "All told, it was an encouraging start, on a night when the menu of news was mildly intriguing rather than outrageously infuriating or ridiculously bizarre. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Sep 29, 2015
69% Scream Queens: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "A slash here, a shriek there and sinister, soap-sudsy silliness pretty much everywhere - that's the formula that might allow Scream Queens to live up to its considerable pre-launch hype and emerge as one of the fall TV season's first breakout hits. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Sep 21, 2015
7% Dr. Ken: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Please, someone, pull the plug. It's the merciful thing to do. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Sep 18, 2015
38% The Player: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The show's Sin City setting adds an element of flash, and Snipes really gets into his role as the secret game's pit boss. The overall impression though is of a drama that's a bit too out-there to be accepted by a large audience. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Sep 17, 2015
43% Heroes Reborn: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "The two-hour pilot is necessarily jammed with character introductions and storyline establishment, but it moves smartly and some of the "powers" subplots feature very cool effects. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Sep 17, 2015
54% Code Black: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Code Black's pilot is intense and focused, immersing viewers in the non-stop action in L.A.'s biggest ER. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Sep 17, 2015
7% Rosewood: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Despite its abundance of high-tech gadgetry and colourful Miami Beach scenery (or, perhaps, because of it), this newcomer feels like a whole bunch of style masking a shortage of substance. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Sep 17, 2015
2.5/5 56% Ferrell Takes The Field "For staunch fans of Ferrell's comedy, that'll make Ferrell Takes the Field a home run. For everyone else, however, this well-intended effort will probably feel more like a ground-rule double, at best. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Sep 10, 2015
72% I Am Chris Farley (2015) "It's a heartwarming but ultimately heartbreaking film that celebrates the life of a unique comic genius without ever sidestepping the personal problems that pushed him ever deeper into the lifestyle excesses that led to his death in 1997, at age 33. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Sep 8, 2015
2/5 68% The Carmichael Show: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The Carmichael Show deserves a bit of credit for trying to introduce topical humour... into its anachronistic presentation, but it's hardly enough to save this otherwise out-of-touch effort. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Aug 26, 2015
4/5 81% Public Morals: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The heist is bold and stylish. The investigation is dogged and determined. Based on those two factors alone, the Brit-import miniseries The Great Train Robbery has the makings of a ripping-good TV yarn. And it doesn't disappoint. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Aug 26, 2015
4/5 78% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It isn't perfect, but it's very good. The betting here is that the vast majority of The Walking Dead's faithful following will find Fear to be a fully fitting prequel-esque followup to their favourite show. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Aug 26, 2015
20% Mr. Robinson: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Mr. Robinson does have an easy charm that might appeal to viewers who favour nostalgia over new in the summertime TV schedule. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Aug 5, 2015
92% Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It isn't brilliant, and was never meant to be, but in terms of providing a summer-relief bounty of pure, simple, unapologetically stupid fun, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp delivers all that anyone could ask, and maybe even a little bit more. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Jul 30, 2015
2/5 84% I Am Cait: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "[Jenner] quickly undercut her own credibility by lapsing into formulaic Kardashian-TV behaviour. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Jul 28, 2015
36% Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015) "Sharknado 3 merely creates tedium as it repeats the same gags within a framework that somehow manages to make - yes, it is possible - even less sense than its amusingly mindless predecessors. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Jul 21, 2015
59% Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "I'm happy to say that his newest TV effort, FX's Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, lives up to the high standard Leary has set for himself. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Jul 16, 2015

Posted Jun 29, 2015
3/5 80% Ballers: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Ballers is a smirks-and-chuckles affair. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Jun 29, 2015
4/5 88% HUMANS: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's all pretty gripping stuff -- a bit creepy, a bit spooky and rather smart, and as its storylines begin to overlap, Humans becomes an addictive drama that no intelligent viewer -- real or synthetic -- will want to miss. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Jun 29, 2015
4/5 48% Zoo: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It grabs its audience early, serves up a lot of action in its first hour, establishes characters that the audience will want to follow, and lays out a big central premise that feels worthy of a weekly investment of time. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Jun 29, 2015
67% Sense8: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "By the end of the third episode, Sense8 is mostly successful in getting viewers acquainted with the eight "sensates," revealing just enough about the nature of and reasons for their increasingly intermingled intellect. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
Posted Jun 4, 2015
97% Hannibal: Season 3 (TV, 2015) "This new season of Hannibal shows early signs of being the show's best yet -- and that's a pretty big accomplishment. " ‐ Winnipeg Free Press
