The Affair: Season 2 - 4 (TV Episode)
Wicked City: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"Wicked City compensates for some pedestrian dialogue and only-on-TV coincidences with bouts of genuinely scary intensity, and doesn't default to eruptions of gore. Another plus is the blast-from the-past setting. "
Nasty Baby (2015)
Rock the Kasbah (2015)
Game of Thrones: Season 5 (TV, 2015)
Doctor Who: Season 9 - The Girl Who Died (TV Episode)
"Tonight's much-anticipated "Doctor Who," perhaps my favorite episode so far this season, gives us our first glimpse of Arya Stark, well "Game of Thrones" actress Maisie Williams anyway, in the Whoniverse. "
The Affair: Season 2 - 3 (TV Episode)
Manhattan: Season 2 (TV, 2015)
American Horror Story: Hotel - Checking In (TV Episode)
"A small container for a host of enthralling ideas about child development, the maternal bond, the nature of reality, the psychic cost of repression and the existential perils, as well as the ineffable joys, of freedom. How do they all fit? "

Empire: Season 2 - Poor Yorick (TV Episode)
American Horror Story: Hotel - Chutes and Ladders (TV Episode)
Doctor Who: Season 9 - Before the Flood (TV Episode)
The Walking Dead: Season 6 - First Time Again (TV Episode)
""First Time Again," was given an expansive hour and a half to tell its story... It wasn't as explosive as the season five premiere... but it still packed an awful lot of brawn and brains - both literal and figurative - into the extra time. "

The Affair: Season 1 - 10 (TV Episode)
The Affair: Season 1 - 9 (TV Episode)
"Bolstered by Ruth Wilson's absolutely stellar performance, the scene in Dr. Henry's office (which, in my opinion, should seal the deal on a Golden Globe win) is one of the most heartbreaking moments in TV in recent years. "

The Affair: Season 1 - 5 (TV Episode)
"It's also interesting that Alison is caring for her grandmother who has Alzheimer's. The Affair has been so much about the nature of truth and lying, and the way that our brains remember, don't remember, or misremember certain events. "
The Affair: Season 1 - 4 (TV Episode)
"That's a whole big mess of plot that The Affair... But the performances are so damned fantastic and the pacing so well handled that the episode feels breezy and fun along with being tense, dramatic, and poignant. "
The Affair: Season 1 - 1 (TV Episode)
"It's fitting, then, that the first glimpse we get of the main character (played to perfection by Dominic West) is of him swimming... His perfect form emulates nearly everything that he's going to tell us during the first half of the premiere episode. "
The Affair: Season 1 - 3 (TV Episode)
"That's a whole lot of plot in a thrilling hour of television, but The Affair also offered a ton of great character insights. The musical choices, for instance, are particularly telling (check out our observations below for more on that). "

He Named Me Malala (2015)
"A surprisingly bright-spirited and profoundly moving portrait of Malala and -- a big and -- the father who named her after a national folk hero of Afghanistan, guided her education in Pakistan's Swat Valley and set her on her fateful path. "
The Affair: Season 1 - 2 (TV Episode)
Fear the Walking Dead: Season 1 - Cobalt (TV Episode)
Scandal: Season 5 (TV, 2015-2016)
"Liv tells him they need to work out their issues first, clean all their dirty laundry before they're picked apart by the public. It's the most adult decision they've ever made. Maybe there is room for a happy ending for this couple. "
The Grinder: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
Indian Summers: Series 1 (TV, 2015)
"In true soap-opera style, everything that can go wrong does, and everyone is being blackmailed or conniving or lusting or about to be betrayed. And many pages of dialogue could have been cut with no harm done. "
Quantico: Season 1 (TV, 2015)
"If the first hour is any guide, though, there will be enough action and interplay and people to feel safe around, or suspect, to keep it constantly entertaining. Blink and you may miss something important. "
99 Homes (2015)
"A relatively small, tough-minded drama about pitiless people doing unprincipled things, proves to be one of the most interesting, elegantly crafted and --paradoxically, given the dark subject matter -- elating films to come along in recent memory. "
Prophet's Prey (2015)
"As horror upon horror unfolds in Prophet's Prey, Amy Berg's shocking documentary about the mad polygamist Warren Jeffs and his followers, one may marvel, in horror, at the elaborate forms that deviancy can take. "
