7/10 94% Stranger Things: Season 2 (TV, 2017) Stranger Things 2 embraces a more character-driven approach, and while some characters - both new and old - fall flat, there are enough scares, laughs, and charms to keep viewers bingeing to the very end.‐ PopMatters

4/10 71% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Worse Than a Crime (TV Episode) "Worse Than a Crime" is almost criminally uneven, reflecting the unevenness that has plagued the "Rise of the Villains" season all fall.‐ PopMatters

7/10 71% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Mommy's Little Monster (TV Episode) For the most part, these familiar characters are starting to assume their preordained roles, yet there are just enough discrepancies and opportunities for divergence from the established story.‐ PopMatters

7/10 79% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: By Fire (TV Episode) "By Fire" has sparked several exciting developments for many of our proto-villains.‐ PopMatters

3/10 62% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Scarification (TV Episode) The fifth episode of Gotham's second season still fails to live up to the thrilling prospects of the first three. ‐ PopMatters

6/10 64% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: The Last Laugh (TV Episode) Despite the fact that prior to the episode's pivotal climax, the narrative is bland and slow, with little by way of significant plot or character development, "The Last Laugh" is a must-see episode for Gotham viewers, at least for its last 10 minutes.‐ PopMatters

7/10 100% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Knock, Knock (TV Episode) Despite the frustrating blandness of this episode's heroes, "Knock, Knock" has done a great job of cutting down on irrelevant subplots solely for the sake of including as many characters as possible. ‐ PopMatters

8/10 77% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Damned If You Do... (TV Episode) Gotham's season 2 premiere skillfully picks up most of the narrative threads from last season and introduces exciting new directions for the characters, leaving viewers with many questions. ‐ PopMatters

3/10 No Score Yet 2 Broke Girls: Season 4 (TV, 2014-2015) 2 Broke Girls's Max Black Kat Dennings and Caroline Channing are too bitterly sardonic and snobbishly whiny, respectively, to ever become endearing enough to sustain viewers' interest.‐ PopMatters

5/10 58% Once Upon a Time: Season 4 (TV, 2014-2015) Overall, the latest season of ABC's fairy tale drama Once Upon a Time takes an already complex and meandering story and complicates it still further by adding in a whole host of new characters. ‐ PopMatters

8/10 79% Gotham: Season 1 (TV, 2014) The first season of Gotham seems to have met if not exceeded expectations. In particular, it succeeds by focusing on the city itself and the process of how it creates these familiar and beloved characters.‐ PopMatters

7/10 82% Elementary: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) Holmes is acted expertly by Miller, with all the quick-witted dialogue and dry humor we love to see from Sherlock Holmes, as well as a physicality that injects energy into this otherwise blandly performed show.‐ PopMatters

7/10 No Score Yet Bones: Season 8 (TV, 2012-2013) The guest appearances were entertaining and the camerawork was inventive, but the real merit of this episode was its return to Bones' endearingly absurd humor.‐ PopMatters

9/10 95% Parks and Recreation: Season 5 (TV, 2012-2013) It's filled with the witty humor and touching moments we have come to expect, while posing questions about our political, social, and personal systems.‐ PopMatters

7/10 38% Deception: Season 1 (TV, 2013) So far, so like Revenge.‐ PopMatters

7/10 64% The Following: Season 1 (TV, 2013) The much promoted premiere provides chills and thrills, but it is this series' complexity, grounded in literary influences, that may lead to a long and exciting run.‐ PopMatters

6/10 76% Community: Season 4 (TV, 2013) If Community has been an underappreciated gem for the past three years, its fourth season premiere is sadly lackluster. ‐ PopMatters
