Rating Title/Year Author
This Is Us: Season 1 (TV, 2016-2017) Curt Wagner The Is Us is unapologetically uncynical and definitely manipulative. But it rarely feels cheap. All those tears are earned, so go ahead and have a big, cathartic cry. EDIT

Santa Clarita Diet: Season 1 (TV, 2017) Curt Wagner Santa Clarita Diet isn't for everyone. But if you chuckle at someone upchucking or believe gory goofiness can be charming, indulge. Just don't binge while eating. EDIT

2.5/4 Containment: Season 1 (TV, 2016) Curt Wagner Despite its flaws-and the buckets of fluids used-I found 'Containment' to be the TV equivalent of a car wreck. It's frightening, but you can't look away. EDIT

2/4 Hunters: Season 1 (TV, 2016) Curt Wagner Hunters borrows many familiar beats from other TV shows and films. Too bad it doesn't weave those samples into a wholly original or inspiring new tune. EDIT

3.5/4 Outlander: Season 2 (TV, 2016) Curt Wagner If the first five of the 13 new episodes are any indication, the "Outlander" company will outdo themselves with this sumptuous and provocative sophomore effort. EDIT

0/4 Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders: Season 1 (TV, 2016) Curt Wagner Facts and theories are spouted via an awkward expository style that had me yelling at the TV, "Stop talking and do something!" EDIT

Gigi Does It: Season 1 (TV, 2015) Curt Wagner After thinking the series would be just another show about a crude senior, I was surprised by how much I love it. David Krumholtz brings a new spark to that played-out trope. EDIT

Kevin From Work: Season 1 (TV, 2015) Curt Wagner The characters are a little too one-note and a majority of the jokes are not sophisticated enough to make me buy it. I laughed, but not enough to watch more 'Kevin From Work.' EDIT

Strike Back: Legacy (TV, 2015) Curt Wagner I say it every season of Strike Back, and every season it's true: They've topped themselves again ... The final season is well worth the wait. EDIT

Justified: Season 6 - The Promise (TV Episode) Curt Wagner I'm going to miss 'Justified,' and especially these two characters [Raylan Givens and Boyd Crowder]. EDIT

Ripper Street: Season 3 (TV, 2014) Curt Wagner The 'Ripper Street' gang is back together, and viewers are all the better for it. EDIT

UnReal: Season 1 (TV, 2015) Curt Wagner The moral and ethical decisions with which Rachel struggles and that Quinn ignores make the show much more than a parody of the reality genre or a quality pleasure soap. EDIT

Sense8: Season 1 (TV, 2015) Curt Wagner 'Sense8' delivers action, mystery, humor and big philosophical ideas-even if its a little clumsy at times. EDIT

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell: Season 1 (TV, 2015) Curt Wagner Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is an intoxicating potion of period drama, gothic horror, fantasy and mystery. EDIT
