3/5 89% SS-GB: Miniseries (TV, 2017) Exquisitely detailed in its production: the cars, the frocks and suits, the sets are all note-perfect. And Sam Riley as our tortured protagonist DS Douglas Archer is very good. If only everyone would just speak up!‐ Sydney Morning Herald

No Score Yet Degrassi: Next Class: Season 1 (TV, 2016) There's some pretty steamy content here but it maintains the eternal appeal of peer-group wrangling, of the kids having something to teach the adults.‐ Sydney Morning Herald

4/5 80% Glitch: Season 1 (TV, 2015) It had to happen sooner or later. And given that it did have to happen, how marvellous that it's happened like this. We finally have our very own zombie series, and it's a cracker.‐ Sydney Morning Herald

2.5/5 77% The Daily Show With Trevor Noah: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) Hopefully he'll relax and improve as time goes by. For now, though, the nerves are palpable, the timing in his comic routines misses by a considerable margin, and his interviewing skills need quite a bit of work.‐ Sydney Morning Herald

3/5 39% The Player: Season 1 (TV, 2015) Absolutely nothing that occurs here is believable in the slightest. But does that matter? Absolutely not.‐ Sydney Morning Herald

3.5/5 90% The Affair: Season 2 (TV, 2015) The cast is tremendous, particularly Ruth Wilson as Alison, and its thoughtful investigation of the rippling shockwaves from an extramarital affair is compelling.‐ Sydney Morning Herald

4/5 98% UnReal: Season 1 (TV, 2015) In a pilot ep that's crammed with characters, exposition, gags and events -- all handled superbly -- we hook into a number of "journeys" that promise to make UnREAL as satisfying as it is hilarious.‐ Sydney Morning Herald

4/5 98% Ash vs Evil Dead: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) If you're a fan of the mixed-genre genre, this is a cracker, and aficionados of Sam Raimi​'s original films will love revisiting tropes, touchstones and Raimi's distinctive style. This also works perfectly well for newbies, though. ‐ Sydney Morning Herald

3.5/5 63% True Detective : Season 2 (TV, 2015) While this is distinctly and unmistakably True Detective, it's also something of a reinvention: with the same sense of menace but less claustrophobic, less of a two-hander and with a broader, richer brief.‐ Sydney Morning Herald

67% The Slap: Season 1 (TV, 2015) This series has been compelling but often uncomfortable viewing, testament to the tremendous performances delivered across the board.‐ Sydney Morning Herald

3.5/5 100% Fargo: Season 2 (TV, 2015) Fargo 2.0 promises to be every bit as fun, surprising and thought-provoking as the original.‐ Sydney Morning Herald

3/5 100% Covert Affairs: Season 5 (TV, 2014) Full of implausibilities, but engaging all the same.‐ Sydney Morning Herald

4/5 94% Broadchurch: Season 1 (TV, 2013) We get not just seamless exposition, we get a tremendous feel for character that has us instantly caring about who these people are and how this event affects them. A fabulous cast helps, too.‐ Sydney Morning Herald

4/5 91% The Bridge (FX): Season 1 (TV, 2013) Diane Kruger is perfectly icy as the "unusual" Detective Sonya Cross. Demian Bichir is super as her Mexican counterpart Marco Ruiz: kindly, world-weary, with a quantity of crumpled charisma.‐ Sydney Morning Herald

88% Lilyhammer: Season 1 (TV, 2012) A fabulous character comedy-drama that's as unusual as it is entertaining.‐ Sydney Morning Herald

80% Revenge: Season 1 (TV, 2011-2012) This isn't high art but it is a classy package with an awful lot to recommend it; a great example of intelligent pop drama.‐ Sydney Morning Herald
