Downton Abbey: Season 6 - Episode 8 (TV Episode)

Downton Abbey: Season 5 (TV, 2015)

Game of Thrones: Season 6 - The Winds of Winter (TV Episode)
"It's a good thing... that the season finale was full of massive developments, tying up several plot threads while leaving some others dangling in the most tantalizing way. This was the most complete episode of "Game of Thrones" yet, and possibly the best. "
Roadies: Season 1 (TV, 2016)
"All shows like this are destined to be nostalgia-stokers and appetite-whetters at best. So maybe watch Roadies as yet another reminder that what we're all really chasing is the gut-clenching thrill of live music. "
Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016)
Free State of Jones (2016)
