Posted Jul 14, 2016
B 93% Stranger Things: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Stranger Things has promise as a peculiar and critical historical survey of geek culture. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jul 13, 2016
B+ 97% Mr. Robot: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "There's an abundance of artfulness, and Malek is electric. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jul 11, 2016
B- 83% Match Game: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Alec Baldwin is the host. Let me repeat that: Alec Baldwin -- Emmy-winning, Oscar-nominated Alec Baldwin -- is the host. How the hell did that happen? I don't know, but man, is he something to watch. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jul 7, 2016
A- 95% The Night Of: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "The Night Of produces endless richness and sobering meanings about the degrading cost of a flawed justice system. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jul 7, 2016
B 91% Downton Abbey: Season 6 Episode 9 "Julian Fellowes went full Oprah, raining parting gifts of love and hope and opportunity on his people, albeit some were wrapped with some gentle keepin'-it-real about life's fragility. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jul 1, 2016
B 72% Downton Abbey: Season 4 (TV, 2014) "Much like the manor itself, Downton Abbey is still a classy place to visit, but its glory days are a thing of the past. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jun 29, 2016
B 89% Downton Abbey: Season 6 (TV, 2016) "The season is best when it attends to the fears and fury of those in the underclass at risk of becoming even more marginalized by social flux. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jun 29, 2016
B 78% Greenleaf: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It's fresher, wiser, and more relevant than most shows that tackle spiritual matters, and it brings more people of color in more unique roles to TV. It's provocative and progressive as religious pop but disappointing as wickedly delicious melodrama. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jun 20, 2016
B 63% BrainDead: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The cast is spunky and appealing, the writing is witty, the tone is light, the brain poop thing made me laugh. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jun 13, 2016
A+ 100% O.J.: Made in America (2016) "Extraordinary on so many levels, O.J.: Made In America transcends its stated subjects and themes. It's a withering critique of self-creation, culture making, and idolatry that speaks to everyone, regardless of race. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jun 13, 2016
B 72% Animal Kingdom: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The performances are good enough to enliven the antihero familiarity. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jun 10, 2016
C 23% Feed the Beast: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Another show would organize around either Tommy and his earnestly played grief or Dion and his seedy folly. Feed The Beast tries to organize around both. The result is two poorly cooked tastes that don't go great together. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jun 6, 2016
B 79% Outcast: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Outcast does just enough to push my buttons, but it's more interesting than engrossing. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jun 3, 2016
A- 97% Roots: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "A propulsive, plot-driven narrative and performances remarkable for their emotional depth and physicality keep you constantly engaged. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted May 25, 2016
B 87% All the Way (2016) "Complexity flows from Cranston. He can't replicate LBJ's girth or age, but his ferocious performance -- aided by seamless makeup and helmer Jay Roach's framing -- is fully convincing. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted May 18, 2016
A- 92% The Night Manager: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "A clever fable of heroic renewal, The Night Manager gives us a redemptive journey into a heart of darkness and a portrait of a genre mired in shadow pining for daylight. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Apr 14, 2016
B+ 97% Orphan Black: Season 4 (TV, 2016) "Pulling from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens playbook, Manson and Fawcett reignite our interest by replicating the story that started it all. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly

Posted Mar 27, 2016
A 99% The Americans: Season 4 (TV, 2016) "I like the idea that The Americans might be developing into an allegory for what it means to be a conscientious objector in a broken, wayward culture. Choose wisely, comrades. The future is counting on you. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Mar 16, 2016
C 75% Marvel's Daredevil: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "Goddard, DeKnight, and D'Onofrio are gone, and so is the spark. Season 2-overseen by exec producers Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez, who both wrote on season 1-is a straight-up disappointment. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Mar 16, 2016
C- 33% Party Over Here: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The premiere wasn't a disaster, but it wasn't funny enough, either, and some qualities suggested that it might never be the appointment viewing blast it wants to be. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Mar 14, 2016
A- 100% The Carmichael Show: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "It loves the sound of its voices - feisty, witty, opinionated voices, hashing out the issues of our day in long scenes of well-acted, well-written conversation. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Mar 14, 2016
A- 97% American Crime: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "American Crime wasn't fun, and it wasn't perfect, either, but it was richly rewarding all the same. I won't easily forget it, and I don't want to, either. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Mar 10, 2016
C+ 35% Of Kings and Prophets: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Of Kings and Prophets is a bit Moses-y: It points to a promised land of resonant, high quality religio-pop, but doesn't quite reach it. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly

B 90% Downton Abbey: Series 6 Episode 9 "Julian Fellowes went full Oprah, raining parting gifts of love and hope and opportunity on his people, albeit some were wrapped with some gentle keepin'-it-real about life's fragility. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Mar 7, 2016

Posted Mar 2, 2016
B+ 87% House of Cards: Season 4 (TV, 2016) "House of Cards creates a psychic space for me to wallow in my frustration, then directs me toward better, righteous ways for expressing it in the real world. It delights me, it indicts me, it is, on many levels, a true guilty pleasure. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Mar 2, 2016

Posted Feb 24, 2016
32% The X-Files: Season 10 Episode 6 ""My Struggle II" disappointed with a story that focused on the show's underdeveloped and unappealing new formulation of the alien conspiracy, a storytelling structure that kept Mulder and Scully apart for the entire episode and a cliffhanger nobody wanted " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 23, 2016

Posted Feb 15, 2016
C+ 80% 11.22.63: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "11.22.63 reaches some thoughtful, moving conclusions, but oh, what coulda been with a more engaged star. If only there were a time machine to fix that mistake. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 11, 2016

Posted Feb 11, 2016
85% The X-Files: Season 10 Episode 4 "Like other installments in the revival, "Home Again" tried to do too much. Still, I was moved, provoked, and spooked by this creepy and overtly political hour. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 9, 2016
59% The X-Files: Season 10 Episode 1 "Count me among those disappointed by the opening hour of The X-Files revival, a clunky hour so burdened by service to so many goals it could hardly entertain the way The X-Files used to. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 4, 2016
100% The X-Files: Season 10 Episode 3 ""Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster" left me as giddier as a stoner huffing spray paint in the pale moonlight. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly

A 97% The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "American Crime Story is a meticulously crafted, powerfully resonant docudrama that crackles with timely issues -- race, sexism, privilege, celebrity, broken justice, media manipulation, and more. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 3, 2016
B+ 83% You, Me and the Apocalypse: Series 1 (TV, 2015) "The scattered storytelling initially baffles, but mounting revelations and charming crazy will turn your bewildered "What the heck is going on?" into a curious and invested "Where the hell is this going?" " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 28, 2016
C+ 49% Lucifer: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The conventional crime-time format incinerates everything strange and spirited about the concept. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly

B 69% The Magicians: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The Magicians isn't a nasty scold of Young Adult geekery, but it is a fantasy that gets you reflecting on your relationship to fantasy, a looking-glass fiction held up to a world cluttered with looking-glass fictions. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
