3.5/5 74% True Detective : Season 2 Episode 6 "This was the hour Vince Vaughn was given the least insufferable dialog to play with and it was much more comfortable having him around. He even got to get a little comedic. " ‐ TV Fanatic

Posted May 22, 2015
4.7/5 96% Mad Men: Season 7 Episode 13 "The focus was extremely narrowed on Mad Men Season 7 Episode 13 and it felt great to be out of McCann Erickson. We were only there for a week, but that was one week too long. " ‐ TV Fanatic

Posted Apr 6, 2015
4.5/5 No Score Yet Finding Carter: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Last summer's surprisingly addictive drama has grown up. Finding Carter has gotten real, and all bets are off. " ‐ TV Fanatic
Posted Apr 2, 2015
4.7/5 92% Bates Motel: Season 3 (TV, 2015) "Bates Motel has always been a compelling series, but I'm looking forward to watching Norma and Norman do an intricate dance for relationship domination. " ‐ TV Fanatic

4/5 95% Battle Creek: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "There isn't much Dean Winters would do that I wouldn't watch. Here, his talent is matched by Josh Duhamel, so it's almost difficult to play favorites. " ‐ TV Fanatic

Posted Jan 13, 2015
5/5 100% Mad Men: Season 7 Episode 7 "We skipped ahead to the day Apollo 11 launched and the story couldn't have played out more brilliantly. Not knowing where the hour was heading after Don received a letter from the firm about breach of contract made me feel tense and insecure. " ‐ TV Fanatic
Posted Jan 4, 2015
5/5 96% Mad Men: Season 7 Episode 6 "Wow. What a strong installment. Both story-wise, performance-wise and its emotional punch-wise, Mad Men Season 7 Episode 6 was one of the best of the series. " ‐ TV Fanatic
Posted Jan 4, 2015

Posted Jan 4, 2015
3.8/5 82% Mad Men: Season 7 Episode 4 "[It] doesn't tell fast-paced stories - and that's a major problem with the final season being split into two parts. I can't imagine a great cliffhanger moment that will leave us breathless in anticipation for the final seven installments [next year]. " ‐ TV Fanatic
Posted Jan 4, 2015
4.5/5 100% Mad Men: Season 7 Episode 3 "I never saw this coming and the dramatic tension it opens up is fertile ground. No wonder they don't leak any stories ahead of time. " ‐ TV Fanatic
Posted Jan 3, 2015
4.5/5 93% Mad Men: Season 7 Episode 2 "I loved all of the nods to pop culture from the era, and the closer they get to TV shows that aired as repeats when I grew up, or use glasses my grandmother had, the more tickled I get watching. That alone is worth the time to watch. " ‐ TV Fanatic

Posted Dec 22, 2014
85% Homeland: Season 4 Episode 11 "It's another installment of Homeland perilously short on time, but even more so on content. For approximately 40 minutes Homeland followed Quinn's preparation to take down Haqqani and Carrie's attempt to stop him. It was hardly scintillating television. " ‐ TV Fanatic
Posted Dec 21, 2014
100% Homeland: Season 4 Episode 10 "Not only did it come in under the normal air time in terms of minutes, it was almost nonstop action for much of it. It was brilliantly fierce in its delivery. " ‐ TV Fanatic
Posted Dec 21, 2014
100% Homeland: Season 4 Episode 9 "It was apparently right up front that something wasn't right about the trade-off of Haqqani's top prisoners and Saul, but nothing quite prepared anyone for the final five minutes. " ‐ TV Fanatic

Posted Dec 21, 2014
80% Homeland: Season 4 Episode 7 "It's starting to feel as if Homeland is using cheap shots to capture our attention instead of compelling storylines. While the occasional banter between characters wakes me up, I'd prefer the thrills to be plot driven and not to wind me up as a viewer. " ‐ TV Fanatic
Posted Dec 21, 2014
82% Homeland: Season 4 Episode 6 "It was a fairly fast and furious hour. Carrie was all business (after the disgusting kisses) with Aayan as she was ready to get him to "London." " ‐ TV Fanatic
Posted Dec 21, 2014
82% Homeland: Season 4 Episode 5 "There is no evidence that Homeland is slowing down anytime soon. " ‐ TV Fanatic

Posted Dec 20, 2014
4.5/5 81% Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce: Season One (TV, 2014-2015) "Bravo's first scripted series made a damn good run for the money its first time out of the gate. " ‐ TV Fanatic
Posted Dec 3, 2014
4.8/5 No Score Yet Continuum: Season 3 (TV, 2014) "[Rachel Nichols] solidly plays Kiera but allows her supporting players to shine as well. We can always use another show with a strong, yet compassionate woman who can kick some [butt]. " ‐ TV Fanatic
Posted Oct 16, 2014
4.7/5 95% The Affair: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "I find myself drawn to psychological dramas, and examining relationships is particularly compelling to me. The cast is incredible and the acting in The Affair is top notch. " ‐ TV Fanatic

4.5/5 100% Arrow: Season 3 (TV, 2014-2015) "Arrow pulled it off again with an exciting and buzzworthy premiere. It truly was the calm before the storm. " ‐ TV Fanatic
Posted Oct 9, 2014
96% The Flash: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) "Heck, everything about this new world is exciting. While Arrow is about a man rediscovering his humanity... The Flash is about a very human young man choosing heroic ways after a freak accident. Oliver was right, The Flash will be inspirational. " ‐ TV Fanatic
Posted Oct 8, 2014
4.8/5 82% Homeland: Season 4 (TV, 2014) "As we're re-introduced to our characters in their new location in Homeland Season 4 Episode 1, it feels very timely, indeed. Carrie's team has coined her the Drone Queen. It's just like being there. " ‐ TV Fanatic
Posted Oct 6, 2014

4/5 No Score Yet Chicago P.D.: Season 2 (TV, 2014-2015) "Let's face it, the best part of Chicago PD is not the actual crimes, but the drama that surrounds the fabulous characters and this premiere didn't let us down. " ‐ TV Fanatic
Posted Sep 25, 2014
5/5 No Score Yet Chicago Fire: Season 3 (TV, 2014-2015) "It's simply stunning to me that Chicago Fire isn't recognized during awards season. The acting is top notch, the storytelling incredible and it's full of heart. " ‐ TV Fanatic
Posted Sep 24, 2014
