An exacting performance by Simmons, again, goes a long way toward illustrating just how crucial clarity can be in the growing, changing realm of science fiction.

I'd argue that 'Counterpart' is one of the best shows of all time, moving up there with Bryan Fuller's Hannibal and David Simon's The Wire.

The acting - especially that of JK Simmons' two versions of Howard Silk - is once again outstanding.

The story that "Twin Cities" tells is one that someone who's never seen a single episode of Counterpart could appreciate.

[Nazanin] Boniadi's acting capabilities have been put on display in a way that should have heads turning and people talking in a big way... Counterpart is creating some of the most interesting and intriguing roles for women.

God, I love this show.

Beyond its artfully chilly atmosphere and its surprisingly plausible and suspenseful narrative, the main attraction in Season 2 remains J.K. Simmons's crafty, quiet portrayal of the two spies.

Continues to be like a cocktail made up of equal parts John le Carré and Philip K Dick, then shaken not stirred by JJ Abrams.

"Counterpart" is finely woven to the point where missing key beats can throw the whole thing off for you. It's a riveting mind game, expertly pulled off.
