9.5/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 10 "There were big reveals and revenge kills that helped everything add up to a very surprising and satisfying season finale. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jun 26, 2016
10/10 98% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 9 "Game of Thrones viewers are so used to having the rug pulled out from under us that sometimes we don't know when to ease up and enjoy a solid victory. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jun 19, 2016
8.2/10 87% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 8 ""No One" may have given us a bloodless siege, but there were plenty of bloody moments, namely from the brothers Clegane, who were both awesomely brutal this week. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jun 12, 2016
8/10 98% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 7 "We were given a somewhat lighter, less-vital episode of Game of Thrones this week with "The Broken Man," though that's not to say that Arya getting stabbed and the Hound returning from the "dead" weren't notable moments for the series. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jun 5, 2016
7.6/10 No Score Yet Powers: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "I just appreciate the fact that things feel streamlined a bit and more focused on the police work itself. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jun 1, 2016
8.6/10 90% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 6 "There were some great moments in "Blood of My Blood," but mostly the big returns made it possible to salivate for the payoffs (and possible characters) to come. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 29, 2016
6.5/10 73% Gotham: Season 2 Episode 22 ""Transference" certainly wrapped up everything here in Season 2, but given the circumstances coming out of last week's penultimate episode, this one lacked urgency throughout. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 24, 2016
6.8/10 71% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 7 ""Shiva" did well on the Travis/Chris front, and I liked how Madison dealt with Celia, but it seemed to want to serve the endpoint more than the characters. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 22, 2016
9/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 5 ""The Door," directed by Lost's main director, Jack Bender, gave us one of the most emotional deaths on the show to date. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 22, 2016
7.6/10 75% Gotham: Season 2 Episode 21 "All of this made for an eventful outing. Which is what you're looking for in a penultimate season episode. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 17, 2016
7.4/10 85% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 6 ""Sicut Cervus" took us to a new, fresh location full of possibilities. " ‐ IGN Movies

9.2/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 4 ""Book of the Stranger" was filled with reunions, alliances, and a kickass, fiery ending. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 15, 2016
7.2/10 86% Gotham: Season 2 Episode 20 "Was Butch obliterating Azrael with a rocket launcher enough to, basically, save an entire episode? I'm inclined to think it kind of does. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 10, 2016
8.8/10 96% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 3 "With Jon's final choice in "Oathbreaker," the show seemed to make a huge step forward into the endgame. One where me might see things that have been set up for a long time start to pay off. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 8, 2016
7/10 46% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 5 "In the end, our heroes sort of lamely fumbled their way into a victory. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 8, 2016
8.5/10 100% Person Of Interest: Season 5 (TV, 2015) "Michael Emerson is so good. Yes, we all know this. But what would this show be without him, basically, acting opposite no one - a screen - and giving us such emotional moments? " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 4, 2016
7.3/10 100% Gotham: Season 2 Episode 19 "Gotham's version of Azrael was fun, even if it was a bit on-the-nose from a "Gordon's sins coming back to haunt him" standpoint. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 3, 2016
8.6/10 100% Penny Dreadful: Season 3 (TV, 2016) "Dreadful's Season 3 premiere, was a hell of a ride. Doing what this show does best which is exploring the beauty and poetry behind gothic horror with dialogue that both renders plot and reveals heart. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 2, 2016
8.3/10 91% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 4 "In the show's first ever experiment with flashbacks, Strand was given a great background arc. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 2, 2016
9.3/10 91% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 2 "Story flowed here like wine in a very satisfying chapter filled with death and resurrection. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted May 2, 2016
8/10 92% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 1 "Not a high watermark for the show, but a solid opener that managed to touch upon just about every character in the ensemble (a markedly easier task these days now that the herd is so thin) and establish their starting points on this year's chess board. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Apr 24, 2016
7.5/10 82% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 3 ""Ouroboros" benefited greatly from some intense zombie action and the inclusion of the two main characters from the Flight 462 tie-in series. Not that you'd need to watch the webisodes to enjoy this chapter. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Apr 24, 2016
7.2/10 88% Gotham: Season 2 Episode 18 "The reveal wasn't really a big reveal, and most of the episode involved watching Gordon, Bruce, and Alfred slowly figure out what most of us already knew, but it was still good to get all this out in the open. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Apr 19, 2016
6.8/10 85% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 2 "The show's not bad, it's just still finding itself. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Apr 18, 2016
7.8/10 78% Gotham: Season 2 Episode 17 ""Into the Woods" was one of Gotham's biggest payoff episodes to date. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Apr 12, 2016
6.7/10 72% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "I will say that I think the yacht storyline is a unique approach. Fear the Walking Dead has no source material to either adhere to or deviate from, so it can, honestly, go anywhere. Which is both good and bad " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Apr 11, 2016
6.7/10 75% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 1 "I will say that I think the yacht storyline is a unique approach. Fear the Walking Dead has no source material to either adhere to or deviate from, so it can, honestly, go anywhere. Which is both good and bad. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Apr 11, 2016
7.2/10 100% Banshee: Season 4 (TV, 2016) "It isn't long though before you start remembering how much you enjoy these characters " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Apr 5, 2016
7.3/10 47% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 16 "'Last Day on Earth'... failed to deliver a satisfying exclamation point. Instead, we got another fake out/cliffhanger. A technique this show is absolutely over indulging in. Jeffrey Dean Morgan was terrific as Negan though. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Apr 4, 2016
8.4/10 81% The Path: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The Path is a gripping, meditative look at people in turmoil. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 30, 2016
8.6/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 10 "This finale nicely set up a lot of cool stuff for Season 4, but it was also lacking some of the power and majesty of previous finales. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 29, 2016
100% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 9 "An exquisitely awful event that managed to out-do the unpredictable and horrifying death of Ned Stark back in Season 1. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 29, 2016
9/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 8 ""Second Sons" was a really strong episode that had the good sense to leave out Jaime, Robb, Jon Snow and Theon in order to spend more time with three great stories - with three amazing (and different) intimate bedroom scenes. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 29, 2016
6.8/10 100% Gotham: Season 2 Episode 16 "A sort of funky, almost off-brand episode of Gotham this week with "Prisoners." In the sense that, well, it was a touch less heightened than usual. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 29, 2016
8.4/10 81% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 7 ""The Bear and the Maiden Fair" had some strong moments, and a hell of an end, but it was so jumpy... It moved everyone forward, but it just didn't flow as nicely as last week's chapter. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 28, 2016
7/10 68% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 15 ""East" gave us some more hesitant-but-badass Carol moments, but for the most part it clumsily forced our crew apart, and into danger, for very weak reasons. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 28, 2016
8.8/10 90% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 6 ""The Climb" wasn't as strong an outing as the past two episodes, but it did give us a hell of an ending - a big sweeping emotional moment filled with soaring music... This episode was more about paying off the big moments that happened last week. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 27, 2016
100% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 5 "This was the first Game of Thrones episode - and I'm saying this as someone who's read the books and knows generally where each story is headed - that made me really emotional. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 25, 2016
9.3/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 4 ""A dragon is not a slave." "Dracarys," indeed. What an awesome, crowd-pleasing closing scene. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 25, 2016
95% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 3 ""Walk of Punishment," save for the parts in King's Landing, which seems to be the natural place where forward momentum takes a bit of a break these days, was an excellent episode that saw the return of Daenerys and dear, sweet, kindly old Craster. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 24, 2016
8.5/10 90% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 2 "While still totally satisfying, "Dark Wings, Dark Words" was a beast of an episode. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 23, 2016
8/10 91% Gotham: Season 2 Episode 15 ""Mad Grey Dawn" could have easily been a wheel-spinner...But the show went big here and made Nygma's scheme very important and super impactful. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 22, 2016
8.6/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 3 Episode 1 ""Valar Dohaeris" was a grand way to start of the season, but it also seems clear that all of the characters are likely moving further and further away from one another. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 21, 2016
9/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 1 Episode 1 ""Winter is Coming," not only effortlessly takes us along, faithfully, through the book, but it also manages to capture the majestically morbid spirit of Martin's pages and turn them into thrilling television. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 21, 2016
8/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 1 Episode 2 ""The Kingsroad" was a solid episode as it focused on shifting our characters out of their comfort zones. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 21, 2016
8.5/10 80% Game of Thrones: Season 1 Episode 3 ""Lord Snow," as an episode, was dense and filled with tons of exposition and backstory which may or may not have interested those new to this story - but I found myself hanging on every precious word. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 21, 2016
8.5/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 1 Episode 4 "There was a ton of history shoved into this chapter and some of the scenes actually stood out a little bit as being a bit heavy with details. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 21, 2016
9.5/10 92% Game of Thrones: Season 1 Episode 5 "Awful children aside, "The Wolf and the Lion" was the best episode of the series so far. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 21, 2016
9/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 1 Episode 6 "Still no Jon Snow this week in "A Golden Crown," but we did get a lot of movement in the Daenerys storyline, including the unceremonious demise of her bi-polar brother Viserys. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Mar 21, 2016
9.5/10 100% Game of Thrones: Season 1 Episode 7 ""You Win or You Die" is an excellent, pivotal episode where Ned gets unfortunately thwarted by his own honorable intentions. " ‐ IGN Movies
