57% American Gothic: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The characters in this 13-part murder mystery do tend to talk entirely too much, ruining what little suspense the show tries to build up. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

No Score Yet Aquarius: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "The notion of series creator John McNamara is to submerge you in the period and culture that gave birth to Manson and his small army of disciples willing to kill for him, and Aquarius does that very well. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

100% Orange is the New Black: Season 4 (TV, 2016) "I would say that if you love Orange Is The New Black, you're going to be pleased with the way the new season unfolds. If you're more skeptical of its ongoing strength, you may feel, as I did, that some of the show's irritating habits have increased. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

32% Uncle Buck: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Epps is deprived of the sort of good writing that would showcase his talent well. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
Posted Jun 14, 2016
72% Animal Kingdom: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Barkin, whose eyes are naturally set to sly slits, is effortlessly good as a sensual maternal figure with an iron will. She can turn a viewer on and creep a viewer out simultaneously. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

63% BrainDead: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The bug-in-their-ear gimmick is neither clever or frightening enough to qualify as a generator of either giggles or suspense. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

Posted Jun 9, 2016
100% The Americans: Season 4 Episode 13 "The Americans wraps up its fourth season... with an hour in keeping with everything that has preceded it. Which is to say, tightly-coiled drama that doesn't need to raise its voice very frequently to generate suspense and high emotion. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
Posted Jun 9, 2016
87% Casual: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "Casual -- the let's-call-it-a-sitcom starring Michaela Watkins as a single-mom therapist -- proceeds from a place of diffidence, of setting up the mildest of jokes and seeing how softly the show can make them land. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

Posted Jun 3, 2016
23% Feed the Beast: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Feed the Beast purports to bring you in on the exciting experience of creating a new fine restaurant from the ground up.

Posted Jun 3, 2016
50% Maya & Marty: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It's amazing that people as intelligent as Rudolph, Smart, and Michaels didn't realize immediately that doing a mere variation on SNL would fall flat. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
Posted Jun 1, 2016

47% Bloodline: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "You'll have to muster all your fascination and a case of Red Bull to remain transfixed by the new developments. That said, the show yields numerous pleasures in the areas of acting and atmosphere. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

Posted Apr 12, 2016
43% Game of Silence: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "A grim test of endurance, Game of Silence wants to do honorably by its subject matter while also luring you in with lurid shocks. It's a combination that cannot hold itself together. " ‐ Yahoo! TV

82% The Detour: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "I did find Jones and Zea pleasant company -- yes, they're playing parents who speak and do inappropriate things around their children, which is a common sitcom trope these days, but the actors nevertheless make them likable, flawed parents. " ‐ Yahoo! TV
