Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
65% Gotham: Season 1 - Welcome Back, Jim Gordon (TV Episode) The more Gordon is forced to face moral complexity - as opposed to just shouting absolutist good-cop rhetoric - the more interesting his story becomes.‐ New York Times

67% Gotham: Season 1 - What the Little Bird Told Him (TV Episode) Monday's episode ended with Gordon back on the force, bickering with Bullock in the station. So what was the point of the Arkham adventure, exactly?‐ New York Times

46% Gotham: Season 1 - Rogues' Gallery (TV Episode) The new setting brought precious little in the way of actual change for Gotham City's uncaped crusader, who again found himself cornered by malevolent nutters and oppressed by bureaucrats.‐ New York Times

72% Gotham: Season 1 - Lovecraft (TV Episode) It was fitting that the show dispensed with the crime of the week to, if not exactly tie up the various loose ends of the overarching narrative, then at least line them up for further twisting...‐ New York Times

54% Gotham: Season 1 - Harvey Dent (TV Episode) Gotham welcomed a notable character from Batman lore, paired off its resident moppets and further muddled the increasingly convoluted intrigue enmeshing its primary villains.‐ New York Times

68% Gotham: Season 1 - The Mask (TV Episode) Look, I'm as susceptible as anyone to the lizard-brain pleasures of seeing privileged nasties get what's coming to them. There's just not much substance to it. ‐ New York Times

92% Gotham: Season 1 - Penguin's Umbrella (TV Episode) The series finally embraced its strengths and turned in what was, by a fairly wide margin, the best episode of its run.‐ New York Times

72% Gotham: Season 1 - Spirit of the Goat (TV Episode) I've been a fan of Mr. Logue's since his Jimmy the cab driver days on MTV, so it was gratifying to see him be more, for a change, than just the Grizzled Partner of the often dull and dutiful Gordon.‐ New York Times

64% Gotham: Season 1 - Viper (TV Episode) This week felt better than average, by the show's own standards... Even better, the plot, hatched by a damaged crusader of a chemist, deepened the larger story.‐ New York Times

74% Gotham: Season 1 - Arkham (TV Episode) An episode that displayed the show's usual problems - rampant cliches, leaden dialogue - unleavened by some of the livelier touches we've seen in previous weeks.‐ New York Times

63% Gotham: Season 1 - The Balloonman (TV Episode) At some point this show is going to have to give its viewers some credit. But as I said earlier, despite the ongoing flaws, I was cheered to see Gotham affirm its tonal roots, at times, in winningly outrageous fashion.‐ New York Times

71% Gotham: Season 1 - Selina Kyle (TV Episode) We keep getting tantalizing glimpses of the gonzo horror-crime series this show could be... But the demands of the format quickly dilute the manic creepiness of the setup. ‐ New York Times

79% Gotham: Season 1 - Pilot (TV Episode) While there's something numbingly dutiful about the stylized slaying and the ensuing roll out of future villains... if you have any "Batman" sympathies at all, you can feel it working on you.‐ New York Times

91% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Shutdown -R (TV Episode) The frenetic Season 3 finale of Mr. Robot was thick with reveals, reversals and reconciliations, and left no tone unturned as it cycled through suspense and tragedy, high melodrama and horror spectacle.‐ New York Times

75% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.8_Stage3.Torrent (TV Episode) While the actions and decisions that led to these encounters made sense from a character standpoint, only a few of them were very satisfying.‐ New York Times

100% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.7_Dont-Delete-Me.Ko (TV Episode) The episode, written by Mr. Esmail, was uncommonly tender and also a little odd, as Elliot turned a corner -- and perhaps began to synthesize his two halves -- with the help of Trenton's little brother, Mohammed.‐ New York Times

82% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.6_Fredrick+Tanya.Chk (TV Episode) The lesson, as usual on this show, is that control is an illusion, a mirage that lasts precisely as long as the world's true masters allow it to.‐ New York Times

100% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.5_Kill-Process.Inc (TV Episode) The outcome was the show's darkest spin yet on the way power-mad manipulators -- corporations, terrorists, political leaders -- use others' values and idealism as fuel for their own agendas.‐ New York Times

92% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.4_Runtime-Error.R00 (TV Episode) TV is a visual medium, and its best works use its elements to convey a story's visceral and emotional undertow as well as its narrative details. Exceptional ones, like this week's "Mr. Robot," make you reconsider the limits of the art form.‐ New York Times

94% Stranger Things: Season 2 (TV, 2017) ... a season that throughout poignantly gestured at that fraught time when we all leave the basement and face life's terrors and thrills on our own... ‐ New York Times

91% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.3_Metadata.Par2 (TV Episode) A theme this season has been the slow but steady revelation of how badly Darlene, too, has been scarred by the disintegration of her family. Her trauma lacks the Gothic edge of Elliot's certainly, but it was devastating enough to drive her to murder.‐ New York Times

78% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.2_Legacy.So (TV Episode) Part of the energy of Mr. Robot comes from the way it plays with real-life events, a tactic that becomes potentially more intriguing as the series threatens to get into parallel worlds or other more dramatically sci-fi modes of reality distortion.‐ New York Times

100% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.1_Undo.Gz (TV Episode) People can't be definitively controlled, not forever. Their own desires, vulnerabilities and emotions make them potential bugs in any system... That was repeatedly apparent in Wednesday's thrilling, poignant and occasionally horrifying episode.‐ New York Times

100% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.0_Power-Saver-Mode.H (TV Episode) Could Mr. Robot get far enough out of its own head to recapture some of the fun that made its first season so intoxicating? Based on Wednesday's Season 3 premiere, the answer seems to be a qualified yes.‐ New York Times

94% Game of Thrones: Season 7 (TV, 2017) Sunday's episode, largely picking up where the Season 6 finale left off, sketched out the contours of the clashes to come, suggesting some possible paths of convergence and identifying free agents who will fill in the gaps.‐ New York Times

86% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - The Dragon and the Wolf (TV Episode) While it had plenty of enjoyable moments and blue fire-fueled spectacle... the finale largely checked off boxes that have been broadly telegraphed throughout the season.‐ New York Times

82% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - Beyond the Wall (TV Episode) Unlike previous White Walker confrontations, this was a true song of ice and fire, complete with frozen wastes, dragon fury, undead hordes, flaming swords and breathtaking outerwear.‐ New York Times

94% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - Eastwatch (TV Episode) There's certainly plenty of satisfaction to be had from dots getting connected. It's just that after years of information trickling out in dribs and drabs, this season's weekly avalanches of answers can feel overwhelming and a bit disorienting.‐ New York Times

96% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - The Spoils of War (TV Episode) We finally saw a version of the sort of Lannister artillery and dragonfire-fueled clash promised in the Season 6 finale. It was something to behold.‐ New York Times

91% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - The Queen's Justice (TV Episode) The hub connecting the various spokes of Sunday's episode, "The Queen's Justice," was the queen herself, who, we were reminded by Mycroft the Iron Banker, was the spit and image of her father.‐ New York Times

98% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - Stormborn (TV Episode) Roughly 98 subplots unfolded over lots of conversation and a few flashes of action in a talky, busy episode.‐ New York Times

82% The Walking Dead: Season 7 - The First Day of the Rest of Your Life (TV Episode) The show seemed to atone for the for the cliffhangers and slogging misery surrounding the arrival of Negan with a well-paced thriller of an episode that, as the creators have promised, kicked off a new, more hopeful phase of the story.‐ New York Times

66% The Walking Dead: Season 7 - Something They Need (TV Episode) [The episode] also offered us something we needed: some answers. And while Sunday's hour certainly raised a few questions... it also addressed several outstanding ones from the past seven weeks.‐ New York Times

68% The Walking Dead: Season 7 - The Other Side (TV Episode) That said, the return to more Glenbraham misery and predictable events made for a mostly shrug-worthy hour with the occasional wrinkle - has Eugene truly flipped? - and almost zero suspense.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Mar 20, 2017
81% The Walking Dead: Season 7 - Bury Me Here (TV Episode) The Walking Dead spent Sunday with the Kingdom, the most significant holdout. That status will probably change after the colony's two major losses - one tragic, one perhaps overdue.‐ New York Times

78% The Walking Dead: Season 7 - Say Yes (TV Episode) Theirs was the dominant story in an hour that, like most episodes directed by Greg Nicotero, was full of creative zombie high jinks, even as it explicitly laid out the defining themes of the show's current phase.‐ New York Times

82% The Walking Dead: Season 7 - Hostiles and Calamities (TV Episode) A cleverly structured hour that shuttled between the parallel stories of Eugene and Dwight but didn't have them meet up until the final scene. ‐ New York Times

82% The Walking Dead: Season 7 - New Best Friends (TV Episode) After rebounding with a solid midseason premiere last week, The Walking Dead returned Sunday with another nicely balanced episode, one that moved things along and had some fun while clearing up some outstanding mysteries.‐ New York Times

87% The Walking Dead: Season 7 - Rock in the Road (TV Episode) It was an occasionally strained but welcome episode, partly for the break from Negan histrionics but primarily because after the misery and stasis of the first half of Season 7, the core group was back in action.‐ New York Times
Read More | Posted Feb 13, 2017
76% The Walking Dead: Season 7 - Hearts Still Beating (TV Episode) The Walking Dead went into its winter break on Sunday with an exciting episode that felt even more so after the mostly forgettable ones that led up to it.‐ New York Times

74% The Walking Dead: Season 7 - Sing Me a Song (TV Episode) Negan and Carl ending up at Alexandria was a nice zag that I didn't see coming, and I'm intrigued by where their relationship could go... That and Mr. Morgan's more nuanced performance gives me hope that the midseason finale could be a good one.‐ New York Times

59% The Walking Dead: Season 7 - Swear (TV Episode) But while this episode had some nice moments and Alanna Masterson is charming as Tara, I could never quite get past the fact that we were devoting an entire hour to another marginal character, while meeting yet another new group.‐ New York Times

76% The Walking Dead: Season 7 - Go Getters (TV Episode) Sunday's episode was largely about the continuing fallout, as the Saviors returned to the Hilltop to reassert their dominance. But there was one bit of good news: Maggie and her baby are doing fine.‐ New York Times

61% The Walking Dead: Season 7 - Service (TV Episode) In addition to introducing us to life under Negan, the other main point of this episode was to demonstrate the basic differences between the two colonies' approaches to survival.‐ New York Times

72% The Walking Dead: Season 7 - The Cell (TV Episode) While Daryl stayed strong on Sunday, the show definitely broke me... If you put us through a wringer without showing us anything revelatory about the character in question, it just gets annoying and worse: boring.‐ New York Times

95% The Walking Dead: Season 7 - The Well (TV Episode) Sunday's episode represented a notable expansion not only of the players and cast of this story, but also of philosophy.‐ New York Times

64% The Walking Dead: Season 7 - The Day Will Come When You Won't Be (TV Episode) The writers deserve credit for somehow infusing some surprise into a death that was one of the well-known signature events of the comics.‐ New York Times

79% Narcos: Season 1 (TV, 2015) The premiere episode, especially, channels Goodfellas and the Elite Squad films, offering a fast-paced, graphically violent tour of an often savage subculture.‐ New York Times

98% Game of Thrones: Season 6 - Battle of the Bastards (TV Episode) "You're going to die tomorrow, Lord Bolton," Sansa Stark told her husband early in "Game of Thrones" on Sunday. "Sleep well." And I'm going to enjoy watching it, she could have added. Or we could have added. Because I'm guessing most of us did.‐ New York Times
