Irrational Man (2015)
Wayward Pines: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"Unfortunately, the show failed for me in both key areas where it needed to work. It's not fun enough while waiting for the explanation... and the explanation doesn't do a good enough job of justifying everything that's happened before. "
Mad Men: Season 7 - The Milk and Honey Route (TV Episode)
Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
Game of Thrones: Season 5 - Kill the Boy (TV Episode)
Pitch Perfect 2 (2015)
" Banks saves the best for last during the Bellas' big moment at the World Championships. It's a goosebumps moment that leaves you with such a wonderful feeling you might forget the bumpy road that got you there in the first place. "
The Walking Dead: Season 1 - Guts (TV Episode)
Game of Thrones: Season 5 - Sons of the Harpy (TV Episode)
Mad Men: Season 7 - Lost Horizon (TV Episode)
The Walking Dead: Season 1 - Days Gone Bye (TV Episode)
Game of Thrones: Season 5 - High Sparrow (TV Episode)
Mad Men: Season 7 - Time & Life (TV Episode)
"This was a crackling episode not only because the focus was more on the work - always the series' stronger element - but because it was able to make the personal relationships... feel like a part of the professional stories. "
Happyish: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
"It's an episode filled with reunions and character intersections, new leadership configurations and unexpected challenges to those who felt their power was absolute. It's also a ton of fun, when it isn't being horrifying or just plain sad. "
Mad Men: Season 7 - The Forecast (TV Episode)
"In an earlier year, "The Forecast" would feel like a perfectly acceptable third episode of a "Mad Men" season. With so little runway left in the season, and series, it almost feels designed to suggest a show that's as uncertain about its future as Don. "
Game of Thrones: Season 5 - The Wars to Come (TV Episode)
"One of the episode's most stunning images involves the toppling of the Harpy statue atop the pyramid in Meereen, which evokes many incidents from history both recent and ancient of conquerors taking down a symbol of the previous regime. "
Mad Men: Season 7 - New Business (TV Episode)
"The craft of the show has been so strong... that I haven't been particularly bothered by Don's inability to grow. "New Business," though, was an episode so frustrating - and, with few exceptions, dull - that I could for once see that point of view. "

Mad Men: Season 7 - Severance (TV Episode)
Woman in Gold (2015)
Better Call Saul: Season 1 - Pimento (TV Episode)
"Among the many amazing aspects of the final scene of "Pimento" - as powerful in its own way as Mike's breakdown at the end of "Five-O" - is that it hit like a ton of bricks even though I had seen most of it coming. "
The Walking Dead: Season 5 - Conquer (TV Episode)
Kill Me Three Times (2015)
Better Call Saul: Season 1 - RICO (TV Episode)
"The more I've watched this season, the more I've come to view that predestined quality as a feature, not a bug. We know where Jimmy and Mike will be six years into their future. The "what" isn't the important part of Better Call Saul. The "why" is. "

"Morel may have some of the world's greatest actors are on hand for the proceedings, but he isn't creative enough to use their talents to effectively elevate the screenplay to something that transcends the genre. "
Empire: Season 1 - Die But Once (TV Episode)
"Cookie preparing to smother Lucious with a pillow, intercut with Hudson singing gospel, was such a perfect synthesis of everything that was fun about this show that I can't imagine a better ending to its first season. "
Empire: Season 1 - Who I Am (TV Episode)
Bloodline: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"It's the shenanigans with the timeline - and the way they tend to illustrate how ultimately hollow the characters are, even with these superb actors playing them... that won't have me racing to finish the rest of the first Bloodline season anytime soon. "
iZombie: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Undateable: Season 2 (TV, 2015)
One Big Happy: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"Basically every punchline involving Cuthbert's character revolves around her being a lesbian and having lesbian footwear and clothes and interests. If there's any additional room for Cuthbert-generated punchlines, they involve her OCD or neatness. "
