100% BoJack Horseman: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Bojack itself, which premiered its second season last night, stands head and hoof above other shows that serve as cautionary tales for fame knocking too early in the morning. " ‐ New York Observer

76% True Detective : Season 2 Episode 1 "I feel like we're we're way out of our pseudo-intellectual depths with this one. Or wait, maybe this is just the wading pool for babies and I can't tell because I'm too distracted by that chick floating in a bowl of milk. " ‐ New York Observer

97% Game of Thrones: Season 5 Episode 10 "So! This was a fun one! Everyone who deserved to gets to lead a long and happy life, and the wicked are punished thoroughly and has to do endure either a walk of shame and/or the most murder-y fraternity hazing in human history " ‐ New York Observer

88% Game of Thrones: Season 5 Episode 9 "None of this [character] aimlessness seems pointless: just the opposite. This season is leagues beyond the detouring of the fourth book. " ‐ New York Observer

55% Aquarius: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "I just finished Aquarius and boy, is my willing suspension of disbelief tired! " ‐ New York Observer

100% Billy & Billie: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "[It] is the best kind of new television show. Even as its characters snap and snark at each other, the portrayal of these flawed humans is humane...and dare I say, empathetic? " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Apr 15, 2015
97% Louie: Season 5 (TV, 2015) "Louie, you are a nightmare wrapped in a fever dream. But that's my problem: depending on whose fretful sleep we're experiencing, the experiences of Louie's characters can be interpreted as monstrous or worse...arbitrary. " ‐ New York Observer

95% Better Call Saul: Season 1 Episode 4 "In conclusion, I need this show to lighten up a little, or else gleefully revel in its depravity. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Feb 24, 2015
100% Better Call Saul: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "I'd give it a solid A for the pilot-which seems at once like a completely different structure from Breaking Bad while simultaneously existing in the exact same world-and the little revelations I had during it felt very Deep-with-a-capital-D. " ‐ New York Observer

100% The Walking Dead: Season 5 Episode 9 "You might be a good show, The Walking Dead, but our relationship would be as toxic as blah blah blah you get the point. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Feb 9, 2015
75% Babylon: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "I still consider it my duty to inform you when there is a new show you absolutely HAVE to watch. And Babylon ... is one of those shows. Sorry, everybody. Add it to your queue. It's like The Wire meets In the Loop meets The IT Crowd. " ‐ New York Observer

Posted Jan 20, 2015
64% American Horror Story: Freak Show Episode 6 "I'm getting a little tired of watching these characters get fantasy murdered. Come on, American Horror Story, stop sticking our hand into a bowl of grapes and calling it eyeballs. I miss Twisty. Is that weird? " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jan 20, 2015
50% American Horror Story: Freak Show Episode 12 "A lot of weird s--- happened and ten percent of it made any sense whatsoever. That's when you KNOW American Horror Story has hit it's stride again. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jan 20, 2015
83% American Horror Story: Freak Show Episode 8 "For a series that showcases strong, older female actresses, I'm not sure how to go about giving superlatives for this week's "Blood Bath." Good job showing Grrrl Power? Really? " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jan 20, 2015
67% American Horror Story: Freak Show Episode 9 "Damn, I thought I was watching American Horror Story: Freak Show, not American History Story: Pretty Much. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jan 20, 2015
92% American Horror Story: Freak Show Episode 10 "Now Freak Show-which originally had more of that Coven-style celebration of "otherness"-has boomeranged back into the dour and joyless air of Briarcliff. " ‐ New York Observer

92% Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 Episode 8 "Here was a man so overly-concerned with who he was to everyone else and what he was perceived as being that he never quite got around to finding himself. But damn, was that one well-written ride. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jan 2, 2015
82% Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 Episode 7 "The Atlantic City/New York showdown between the Thompsons and the Luciano/Lansky/Siegel contingent finally went down last night, and it was a little... what? Anticlimactic? " ‐ New York Observer

100% Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 Episode 5 "One of Boardwalk's most ingenious episodes yet. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jan 2, 2015

85% Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 Episode 3 "I really hope Boardwalk Empire isn't going to keep on this devout Christian kick, because it's starting to creep me out. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jan 2, 2015
100% Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 Episode 2 "While Boardwalk has proven that you can never trust anyone, it sure seems way more fun to be part of a team. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jan 2, 2015
87% The Strain: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "Look: I am going to give The Strain a chance, if only because it's refreshing to see vampires as disgusting, infected creatures instead of sparkly, pouting little bitches. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jul 14, 2014
70% The Leftovers: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "It doesn't do anything for me to have this show be one of these flatulence-heavy existentialist mysteries, where nothing is revealed because there is nothing to reveal. " ‐ New York Observer

96% Game of Thrones: Season 4 (TV, 2014) "Not as graphic as last season's bloodbath down the aisle, the death count in last night's episode is a game changer, though perhaps not as surprising this time around. All men must die, sure, but do they all have to die at a wedding? " ‐ New York Observer

Posted Aug 21, 2013
