Bookended by two of the most emotionally potent and subtly intricate episodes of the entire series- and that's no small praise -Season 4 of Rectify wraps up one of television's finest and most criminally overlooked shows in slow-burning, poetic fashion
S2 of Bojack continues to brilliantly blend its wacky atmosphere with a deeper, darker psychological undertone, making for what is probably the most original and entertaining comedy-drama on TV right now.
A slight step in the right direction for a show that has nearly fallen off the deep end, The Walking Dead's fifth season still contains plenty of questionably written characters, but there's at least some inspiration and unpredictability to go along with the guts and gore this time around
Brawny, exciting, and ambitious, Black Sails' second season improves upon the first in a big way, finally giving us the swashbuckling entertainment we wanted from the very beginning; the finale is jaw-dropping
A borderline brilliant follow-up/prequel to Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul stands on its own fantastically with striking cinematography, consistently great direction, and an effect mix of sardonic humor and involving drama. Bob Odenkirk, of course, is perfect as the titular character
Too many inconsistent plot threads and the lack of the Kruger/Bichir dynamic make The Bridge's second season a disappointing and occasionally tedious slow burn. The acting and cinematography are still top-notch, though
Season two of Rectify is just as unforgettably heartbreaking and profound as the first, every episode filled with brilliant atmosphere and effectively subdued storytelling. This show is simply a classic in the making
