86% The Blacklist: Season 4 (TV, 2016-2017) The series lost one of its most intriguing side characters in Mr. Kaplan, who had been played by Susan Blommaert over the past several seasons.‐

4.5/5 89% This Is Us: Season 1 (TV, 2016-2017) In its best moments This is Us is both emotional and surprising, and one of the best introductions to a new TV series we've ever seen.‐

3/5 71% The Catch: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) Even with a great initial hook and an incredibly polished pilot, The Catch will need to evolve if it wants to last as long as some of its predecessors.‐

3/5 29% Minority Report: Season 1 (TV, 2015) While the opening episode for the new drama features a quickly- resolved mystery, the Fox show's introduction to the world of the future and some intriguing characters is overall pretty good. ‐

3.5/5 39% The Player: Season 1 (TV, 2015) If you can get past the outlandishness of the premise, you'll probably like NBC's new drama The Player. A lot.‐

2/5 57% Limitless: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) It's not heavy-handed and it doesn't dumb down its audience (although you do have to buy into the NZT brainpower stuff), it just feels like it's missing something, and I think that something may be a level of investment in the characters.‐

2.5/5 59% Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll: Season 1 (TV, 2015) The major problem is that Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll doesn't really know what it wants to be yet.‐

4.5/5 98% Mr. Robot: Season 1 (TV, 2015) I have no no idea if this series will be able to engage audiences beyond the pilot, but for one brief hour, Mr. Robot is damn near perfect.‐

3.5/5 49% Lucifer: Season 1 (TV, 2016) I can't iterate enough how fun Lucifer is.‐

3.5/5 53% Blunt Talk: Season 1 (TV, 2015) The best comedies are often about more than entertainment, and when Blunt Talk is having a moment, it's extremely fulfilling and complex.‐

100% The Americans: Season 3 (TV, 2015) The show gives us a reason to watch for the family dynamics, as well as the spy action.‐

34% Roadies: Season 1 (TV, 2016) Pilots aren't the best indication of what is to come, and there's really a lot going for Roadies that indicates the series should be given a chance.‐

100% Broad City: Season 2 (TV, 2015) Seriously, how are less than a million people tuning in for these weed-infused shenanigans each week? ‐

3/5 58% A.D. The Bible Continues: Season 1 (TV, 2015) It's an old narrative that hasn't been modernized as much as it has been repackaged in a snappy manner. It mostly works.‐

4.5/5 100% Black Sails: Season 2 (TV, 2015) The drama is bolder and sharper than ever, and it's become the crowd pleaser it has always meant to be.‐

3/5 67% Defiance: Season 3 (TV, 2015) Defiance has always been a fine enough, albeit perplexing series.‐

2/5 48% Zoo: Season 1 (TV, 2015) Although the summer sometimes yields diamonds in the rough... CBS' new summer series Zoo doesn't look to be one of them. ‐

3.5/5 30% Dig: Season 1 (TV, 2015) There's one thing for certain: Jason Isaacs was born to play an action hero. ‐

89% Looking: Season 2 (TV, 2015) Looking is special thanks to its subject matter and its characters, and it's a shame there aren't more people championing a show that's emotionally real and often puts its characters into funny circumstances. ‐

4/5 100% The Affair: Season 1 - 1 (TV Episode) The Affair's opening episode asks more questions than it answers, but it explores a side of cognitive behavior and unreliable narratives in ways that are new and novel for TV.‐

2/5 86% black-ish: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) At the end of the day, black-ish is the wrong mix of a lot differing ideas.‐

3/5 36% Secrets and Lies: Season 1 (TV, 2015) Those who enjoy mysteries and melodramas will find a lot to like about Secrets & Lies, a show that's as interested in the reaction to the crime as it is to the whodunit. ‐

2.5/5 27% Manhattan Love Story: Season 1 (TV, 2014) McDorman and Tipton are both actors in their twenties, but Manhattan Love Story doesn't feel youthful enough to be about two New Yorkers finding each other in their twenties. ‐

4.5/5 61% Flesh and Bone: Season 1 (TV, 2015) It's a world without villains or heroes and it makes for a deliciously dark hour of TV.‐

4.5/5 100% Fargo: Season 2 (TV, 2015) It's hard to tell how the whole season will turn out with just a few episodes available, but so far Fargo's second season has been a real treat, close to if not more exciting than its first round at bat.‐

4/5 No Score Yet The Big Bang Theory: Season 8 - The Commitment Determination (TV Episode) The Big Bang Theory can be emotional at times, but there were far more "awws" thrown out during the Season 8 finale than I expected.‐

3/5 59% Red Band Society: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) It's entertaining and mostly offers the right level of emotional payoff for fans. Its characters are well-rounded and differ enough in age and interest level to bring viewers of different ages to the show. ‐

4/5 85% How to Get Away With Murder: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) Breakneck, preposterous and stylish, How To Get Away With Murder will instantly suck in viewers.‐

3.5/5 67% A to Z: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) Thanks to a clever conceit and the perfect casting, A to Z is worth a watch. ‐

59% Gotham: Season 1 - All Happy Families Are Alike (TV Episode) After ambling along for most of its 22-episode run, Fox's Gotham gave us a jam-packed finale tonight that will set up Season 2 for plenty of excitement.‐

3.5/5 97% Masters of Sex: Season 2 (TV, 2014) Like all relationships, Masters and Johnson will surge forward, and as history has already made apparent, some good research will come out of this ill-fitting romance. ‐

1.5/5 54% Married: Season 1 (TV, 2014) Greer and Faxon are both excellent comedic actors; they just weren't given the right material with Married and their work suffers because of it.‐

1.5/5 25% Black Box: Season 1 (TV, 2014) It sounds intriguing, but what makes Black Box such a unique endeavor also makes it a chaotic, hellish program.‐

5/5 78% Halt and Catch Fire: Season 1 (TV, 2014) The pilot shows the time, perseverance and attention to detail of some of television's best programs, and if the other nine Season 1 episodes are half as good, Halt and Catch Fire will be worth watching. ‐

52% Resurrection: Season 1 (TV, 2014) Despite solid performances from Fisher, Smith and more, Resurrection's slow pace will keep audiences in the dark through its first few episodes, making it difficult to contextualize the reality of dead people coming back to life. ‐

2/5 36% Growing Up Fisher: Season 1 (TV, 2014) it's no better than NBC's Fall offerings, and it's quite a bit worse than the likes of the also-cancelled Go On. ‐

88% Call the Midwife: Season 3 (TV, 2014) It's nice to see the writers stay on topic, and it actually makes the forays into tough territory that much more interesting. If you like healthy doses of both comedy and drama in one helping, than Call the Midwife is a great show to be on board for. ‐

2.5/5 57% Chicago P.D.: Season 1 (TV, 2014) If the writers do some molding, Chicago PD could shape up to match the effort star Jason Beghe is putting in. ‐

83% The League: Season 5 (TV, 2013) Now in its fifth season, I'm not sure that FXX's The League can surprise me any more in terms of plot, but the witty one-liners have always been where this series is at, anyway.‐

3/5 62% Black Sails: Season 1 (TV, 2014) It's far from perfect, but the setting is richly detailed and the characters make enough speeches, tell enough stories, and fight enough fights that Black Sails is a fine vehicle for Starz in lieu of Spartacus. ‐

22% Sean Saves the World: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) Watching Hayes play off Lennon's ridiculous personality as boss man Max is incredibly entertaining‐

70% The Michael J. Fox Show: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) I get the feeling NBC's new comedy will figure out exactly what it wants to be and where it wants to go across its first season. ‐

83% The Blacklist: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) Spader is electrifying.‐

2.5/5 43% Gang Related: Season 1 (TV, 2014) It's still a basic chase-down-the-bad-guys crime drama, with many of the tropes we've seen from these sorts of shows in the past. ‐
