95% Preacher: Season 1 Episode 1 "Though the pilot deviates from the original text in fairly significant ways, it's clear that Rogen, Goldberg and showrunner Sam Catlin have attempted to capture the spirit of the comic as best they can. In that regard, mission accomplished. " ‐ Paste Magazine

95% Preacher: Season 1 Episode 2 "Indeed, "See" proves to be every bit as rich as the pilot entry, with outstanding visuals, wonderfully demented set pieces and great character moments that provides the series with a thematic throughline beneath all the blood and carnage. " ‐ Paste Magazine

83% Preacher: Season 1 Episode 4 ""Monster Swamp" provides yet another grounded Preacher entry, albeit one that looks to more clearly push (however intermittently) both the characters and plot forward to the next level. " ‐ Paste Magazine

Posted Jun 17, 2016
7.6/10 100% Orphan Black: Season 4 Episode 4 ""From Instinct to Rational Control" (and, indeed, the series as a whole) is a hard item to critique-after all, it's near impossible to properly judge rising action until you have the whole layout to judge it against. " ‐ Paste Magazine

8.1/10 80% Orphan Black: Season 4 Episode 2 "Pushing forward after its impressive, format-breaking season premiere, "Transgressive Border Crossing" cements Orphan Black's determination to keep one foot planted firmly in the past. " ‐ Paste Magazine

9/10 90% 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) "After years spent quietly establishing himself as one of film and TV's go-to character actors, it's fantastic to see [Goodman] receive a big-screen role that truly capitalizes on his outsized talents. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Mar 15, 2016
8.2/10 93% Doctor Who: The Husbands of River Song (2015 Christmas Special) ""The Husbands of River Song" feels more akin to a Davies-era Christmas installment-it bounces along carelessly like a hyper child on a sugar high only to suddenly swerve into an emotional conclusion. " ‐ Paste Magazine

8.1/10 88% The Big Short (2015) "Big Short may not always succeed, but it stands as an essential film nonetheless. " ‐ Paste Magazine

67% Doctor Who: Season 9 Episode 9 "The episode seemed destined to go down as the worst episode of Season Nine so far. Instead, a literal last minute twist all but shifts how the episode should be perceived, elevating the hour from "meh" to a more memorable "oh, damn..." " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Nov 15, 2015
94% Doctor Who: Season 9 Episode 8 ""The Zygon Inversion" deserves major props for taking a seemingly standard aliens-invade plotline (even with the added resonance of the War on Terror) and turning it, essentially, into a treatise about war and its ultimate uselessness. " ‐ Paste Magazine

8.5/10 100% Arrow: Season 4 (TV, 2015) "Between an exciting new villain and a whole new batch of mysteries, the season already looks to be on a positive trajectory. Here's hoping, unlike Oliver's arrows, it doesn't get stuck and fall midway through. " ‐ Paste Magazine

" ‐ Paste Magazine

8.5/10 93% Doctor Who: Season 9 (TV, 2015) "[It] feels more akin to the penultimate episode of a season rather than the premiere entry. This either means that shit's going to get even crazier from here, or that it's all downhill from this point. For now, I'm putting my money safely on the latter. " ‐ Paste Magazine

Posted Jun 1, 2015
6.9/10 83% Orphan Black: Season 3 Episode 5 "As a whole, the episode works to streamline its various stories... but the result still ends up feeling oddly listless and meandering, with a string of new developments that appear only to set the show up for further disappointment. " ‐ Paste Magazine

7.9/10 92% Orphan Black: Season 3 Episode 4 "Certainly, the most entertaining segment of the hour by far is the Alison storyline, mostly because it continues to take cues from the more charming aspects of Weeds and Breaking Bad (indeed, Donnie even name checks Breaking Bad this time around).

5.8/10 36% Touchy Feely (2013) "Shelton's brand of low-budget, improv-heavy relationship dramedies lends itself well to a quick turnaround. It's only natural then that such an output would inevitably lead to the occasional misstep. " ‐ Paste Magazine
