The X-Files: Season 10 - My Struggle (TV Episode)
The Pack (2016)
The Finest Hours (2016)
The 5th Wave (2016)
"Finally, this scene sets up one of the episode's strongest self analysis tools: the obstacle of writing mysterious fiction in a world where smartphones exist. All of this happens within like 6 minutes. Amazing. "
The X-Files: Season 10 - Founder's Mutation (TV Episode)
"You know what else would ease the residual fatigue of "My Struggle"? A nice, stand alone Monster of the Week episode. And what do you know, "The Founder's Mutation" was written and directed by James Wong... We're in good hands. "
Horace and Pete: Season 1 (TV, 2016)
Grease: Live (2016)
Baskets: Season 1 (TV, 2016)
"[Galifianakis is] really, really good at drawing the humor out of that kind of character, and maybe the most promising thing about this new series is watching him take that in a deeper, stranger direction. I'm excited to see where it goes. "
"Posing as a bogus thriller without one line of believable dialogue or one single thrill, Mojave is 93 minutes of gibberish with guns and phony literary pretentiousness about two thugs in a duel of weapons and words that goes nowhere fast. "
The Benefactor (2016)
"A pile of incomprehensible existential gibberish by the vastly untalented actor-writer-director Tim Blake Nelson about the meaning of life in an age of technology, told in the tiresome style of multiple characters who intersect at odd angles ... "
Marvel's Agent Carter: Season 2 (TV, 2016)
DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 (TV, 2016)
Baskets: Season 1 (TV, 2016)
The X-Files: Season 10 (TV, 2016)
Lucifer: Season 1 (TV, 2016)
Outsiders: Season 1 (TV, 2016)
"The cast is the highlight here, with special nods toward Sarah Paulson's Marcia Clark and, shockingly, Mr. Travolta's portrayal of Shapiro, which is just enough parts measured and absurd to be a scene-stealer. "
Shameless: Season 6 (TV, 2016)
Shades of Blue: Season 1 (TV, 2016)
"Giving full credit to all involved with Shades of Blue, especially Lopez, this series certainly cannot be classified as earth-shattering, but if you're a 'Jenny From the Block' fan, her effort here should be more than enough to keep you engaged. "
The Shannara Chronicles: Season 1 (TV, 2016)
Downton Abbey: Series 6 (TV, 2015)
"Downton simply continues its sharp observations of human behavior among fundamentally decent people, as animated by some of the loveliest faces, voices, and cinematography on the tube, it still has much to offer. "
Mozart in the Jungle: Season 2 (TV, 2015)
Making a Murderer: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Homeland: Season 5 - A False Glimmer (TV Episode)
The Magicians: Season 1 (TV, 2016)
"The television show, anxious and impatient, rushes through the bullet points of the book's plot and forgoes the emotional complexity that made the books more unique than just the Potter imitation they seem at first blush. "
The Affair: Season 2 - 12 (TV Episode)
"Luckily, thanks to the beauty of TV and the The Affair's writing staff which was undercover amazing this whole time, that isn't the ending. In fact, The Affair solved its biggest mystery and in doing so, gave us a thousand more questions. "
The Knick: Season 2 - This Is All We Are (TV Episode)
American Horror Story: Hotel - She Gets Revenge (TV Episode)
Fargo: Season 2 - Palindrome (TV Episode)
The Expanse: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
The Affair: Season 2 - 11 (TV Episode)
"I thought this show was all about classism-after all... but all this time, both the Lockharts and the Solloways AND Baileys are sitting on just piles of cash that they don't want to touch out of pride (or something?) "
The Knick: Season 2 - Do You Remember Moon Flower? (TV Episode)
American Horror Story: Hotel - She Wants Revenge (TV Episode)
Homeland: Season 5 - Our Man in Damascus (TV Episode)
Don Verdean (2015)
"It's a funny, offbeat idea for a farce up to a point, but the joke wears thin too fast to sustain interest and the Hesses lack the originality and cleverness to juggle their balloons in the air in any fresh way. "
In the Heart of the Sea (2015)
A Royal Night Out (2015)
The Lady In The Van (2015)
Fargo: Season 2 - The Castle (TV Episode)
"If this show, to say nothing of this year in real life, has taught us anything, is it not that this is exactly how the eruption of violence in our lives feels-instantaneous, inexplicable, and overwhelming? "
