A 100% Killing Eve: Season 1 - God, I'm Tired (TV Episode) Whatever Carolyn does have going on is getting saved for Season 2.‐ AV Club

A 100% Killing Eve: Season 1 - I Don't Want to Be Free (TV Episode) That Jodie Comer's performance leaves this so hard to discern is part of the joy of the show. It's a great disappearing act, for a performer. Villanelle always seems so completely herself.‐ AV Club

B 67% Killing Eve: Season 1 - Take Me to the Hole! (TV Episode) And yet, here we are again, hoping this magnetic and charming psychopath escapes her circumstances, even though we know she's just going to kill again. It's that lick on Konstantin that does it.‐ AV Club

A- 100% Killing Eve: Season 1 - I Have a Thing About Bathrooms (TV Episode) Part of what makes the central relationship so fascinating on this show is that it is permanently tense. ‐ AV Club

B+ 100% Killing Eve: Season 1 - Sorry Baby (TV Episode) Killing Eve toys with how you feel about Villanelle. In one episode, it's possible to feel concerned for her safety, pleased she's gentle with someone from her past, and scared of her, as she's basically as relentless as the Terminator.‐ AV Club

A- 100% Killing Eve: Season 1 - I'll Deal With Him Later (TV Episode) Killing Eve has been careful so far to show us exactly how disturbing Villanelle's habits are, while simultaneously giving us the same queasy admiration for her that Eve has.‐ AV Club

A 100% Killing Eve: Season 1 - Nice Face (TV Episode) A pilot has to do an awful lot of work. A viewer needs to know some very basic facts about what and who they're watching... Killing Eve tells us exactly who our main characters are in the first ten minutes of the show. ‐ AV Club

A 97% Killing Eve: Season 1 (TV, 2018) The show is both following a few pop culture tropes and also overturning them.‐ AV Club

B+ 100% The Magicians: Season 3 (TV, 2018) How do you keep a show fresh as it heads into its third season? If you're The Magicians, you do it by pulling the rug out from under all of your characters.‐ AV Club

56% Selfie: Season 1 (TV, 2014) This is where the issues with Selfie's premise come in. Eliza's behavior needs changing in some obvious way, but there's something inherently uncomfortable about an older man telling a young woman how to behave herself.‐ Metro

B- 100% Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency: Season 2 (TV, 2017) The question of whether or not Dirk Gently succeeds as a show for you is unlikely to change with this new season. It remains the frustrating, creative, eccentric show it's always been. ‐ AV Club

C 71% Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency: Season 1 (TV, 2016) The new Dirk Gently series, as adapted for BBC America by Max Landis, is going to be one of those adaptations that retains only the bare minimum of resemblance to its source material, it seems.‐ AV Club

A 100% Orphan Black: Season 5 - To Right the Wrongs of Many (TV Episode) So it's time to leave our sestras behind, at last. In their own way, they each more or less get what they want, but in an open-ended enough way to not suggest that life is going to be perfectly easy for them from here on out.‐ AV Club

B 100% Orphan Black: Season 5 - One Fettered Slave (TV Episode) Origin stories are almost always fascinating. And the details we get about Helena provide some extra weight to the person we've seen her become.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Aug 7, 2017
B 100% Orphan Black: Season 5 - Guillotines Decide (TV Episode) The show gives her quite a sendoff, having Felix articulate what has often been Orphan Black's deepest message, that we are so much more than genetics, and that family is about more than just blood.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2017
A- 88% Orphan Black: Season 5 - Gag or Throttle (TV Episode) One of the finest aspects of Orphan Black has always been its ability to be about four shows in one.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jul 23, 2017
B- 92% Orphan Black: Season 5 - Manacled Slim Wrists (TV Episode) These are things we need to know as the show winds down, but the methods by which they're divulged to us are not the most subtle.‐ AV Club

A- 100% Orphan Black: Season 5 - Ease for Idle Millionaires (TV Episode) Is there a more apt depiction of the rot at the heart of Neolution than the man running the movement facing down one of his creations, who's just proven herself to be kind and brilliant, and getting angry at her for not helping him live longer?‐ AV Club

100% Orphan Black: Season 5 - Let the Children and Childbearers Toil (TV Episode) Sisterhood between the clones may be a constant refrain on Orphan Black, but tonight's episode took a step back to reexamine the bonds of the show's core family, and in particular the skills of Mrs. S.‐ AV Club

A 100% Orphan Black: Season 5 - Beneath Her Heart (TV Episode) If last week's episode showed some of the downsides to wrapping up a five-season-long show, this week's shows what can go right.‐ AV Club

B- 100% Orphan Black: Season 5 - Clutch of Greed (TV Episode) All things considered, it's one of the bleaker episodes of the show.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2017
B 92% Orphan Black: Season 5 - The Few Who Dare (TV Episode) The fifth season of Orphan Black may be its final one, but in the premiere, at least, a few things look awfully familiar.‐ AV Club

A- 90% The Magicians: Season 2 (TV, 2017) It's starting to feel like the show has a clearer sense of what it wants to be, and how its characters can grow up.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jan 26, 2017
B- 90% No Tomorrow: Season 1 (TV, 2016-2017) That the show is interested in exploring both the bigger adventures and the day-to-day ones is a good sign of balance.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2016
B 94% Pitch: Season 1 (TV, 2016) There is no focus grouping that can take away the optics of watching a woman play in the majors.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2016
A- 100% Fleabag: Season 1 (TV, 2016) It's another entry into the growing canon of really wonderful comedies that also make you want to cry, the sort of show that makes you write down a note like "cheerfully nihilistic."‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2016
D 52% Shadowhunters: Season 1 (TV, 2016) Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments has the rare honor of being wildly complex and still wildly bland.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jan 12, 2016
B+ 100% Orphan Black: Season 4 - From Dancing Mice to Psychopaths (TV Episode) Sure, they're powerless and separated, but they almost always are, and it's never stopped them before, and they're finally close to the source of their problems.‐ AV Club

B 100% Orphan Black: Season 4 - The Mitigation of Competition (TV Episode) Whether Delphine's absence and return works will depend a lot on where the character goes after this.‐ AV Club

A- 89% Orphan Black: Season 4 - The Redesign of Natural Objects (TV Episode) Not only do we get reminded that the sisterhood will always take priority, we see a really courageous side of Alison, the clone least likely to be taken seriously.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Jun 3, 2016
B 100% Orphan Black: Season 4 - The Antisocialism Of Sex (TV Episode) After all the whirlwind developments of the last episode, it's nice to see Orphan Black slow the pace down a bit.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted May 27, 2016
C+ 88% Orphan Black: Season 4 - The Scandal of Altruism (TV Episode) Clone Club loses nearly everything, there are a ton of revelations, and somehow there are still four more episodes of the season to go. Which is good, because a lot of this doesn't really hold together.‐ AV Club

B- 100% Orphan Black: Season 4 - Human Raw Material (TV Episode) Cosima also gets more of a showcase this episode than she has all season.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted May 13, 2016
B 100% Orphan Black: Season 4 - From Instinct To Rational Control (TV Episode) For all its screwball comedy with the Hendrix clan, this episode was also a bit of an exposition dump.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted May 6, 2016
B 100% Orphan Black: Season 4 - The Stigmata of Progress (TV Episode) So that was perhaps not the best episode of Orphan Black to watch during dinner.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Apr 29, 2016
B+ 80% Orphan Black: Season 4 - Transgressive Border Crossing (TV Episode) Two episodes in, and it looks an awful lot like we're getting two seasons of Orphan Black for the price of one.‐ AV Club

A- 100% Orphan Black: Season 4 - The Collapse of Nature (TV Episode) It's good to see you again, Orphan Black.‐ AV Club

A- 97% Orphan Black: Season 4 (TV, 2016) It's good to see you again, Orphan Black.‐ AV Club

B- 86% House of Cards: Season 4 (TV, 2016) There are some real risks taken this season, both stylistically, and in terms of plot.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Mar 2, 2016
C 63% Telenovela: Season 1 (TV, 2015) Watching everyone on Telenovela emote every last plot point directly at the camera starts to wear after a while. The effect is rather like being bludgeoned with their sheer desire to be liked.‐ AV Club

B+ 93% Marvel's Jessica Jones: Season 1 (TV, 2015) If Jessica Jones can start fully exploring its own story, it'll become the neo-noir superhero epic it's striving to be.‐ AV Club
Read More | Posted Nov 18, 2015
C 73% The Magicians: Season 1 (TV, 2016) As with a lot of properties premiering new worlds, it's balanced unevenly between world building and story building.‐ AV Club
