Legion shines as a completely departure from the tradional superhero series. Visually stunning, funny, witty, scary, superbly written and innovative in every way, Legion is the best series of the year so far, hands down.
Tom Hardy is great - as usual - and the dark magic aura surrounding the often slow plot is rewarding. Taboo is dark, fearful and worthy of your time, even if it's not for everyone (after all, a lot of Taboos are handled here, lol).
The 3-years hiatus in-between seasons is both entertaining and frustrating. But the sense of grandiosity put on Sherlock's (the character) back is just too much, putting the series afar from its previous witty, smart, surprising screenwriting. On Season 4 the episodes seem more disconnected than ever: even if we have the usual slow(er) premiere, the explosive second chapter, this time we have an extremely frustrating and silly season finale - specially after the super-shocking Episode 2 ending.
The Exorcist delivers a strong, well tied plot with a great cast of characters. Surprisingly, the storyline is strong, scary and even compelling. The return of Geena Davis to the screen is fantastic, and the ending makes this the definite horror flick of 2016. For the weak: don't watch alone xD
Absolutely compelling, the show makes you feel like you're in the 80's but with the appeal of the current golden age of television. It's a mix of E.T, X-Files and even Stand by Me. From the brilliant cast of children (and adults too) to the immersive soundtrack and hypnotic script, the efficient storytelling makes this much more than just a homage to 80's television.
By deepening Robin Wright's role in the series, House of Cards Season 4 scores by bringing uncontrollable chaos back to the Underwoods' universe, after a slower and shallower season.
New additions to the cast enrich this highly cynical and brutal season, bathed in political clichés that are a delight to watch.
Absolutely faithful to Christie's novel, And Then There Were None may be outstanding to fans of brit suspenseful drama. The atmosphere is dark and the cast is perfect. I could remember every single detail of the book as the three episodes slowly passed. Go for it.
Dense, intense and daring, the second season of The Affair challenges the most demanding spectator, both technically and especially emotionally, to explore the depths of human nature.
I was a little bit disappointed by this dystopic post-WWII thriller in the beginning, but as the series' universe slowly develops itself, the supposedly shallow characters and plots are surpassed by a fantastic cliffhanger in its last two episodes, setting the table to what could be one of the weirdest (in a great way) things to come to TV next year.
On a consecutive anti-climatic finale, Homeland's season 5 felt like a different show all the way: the direction was more mature, the writing more solid, the plots tied up. The spy-thrills were more realistic, a fact that has turned many fans against this great season. Yet, it was when the show turned itself to the old Homeland-way, with super-Carrie mode on and weird resolutions, that the season delivered its best episodes. But the old Carrie is not this Carrie. That old Carrie doesn't exist anymore. And that's where the beauty of this season lies - after all, Homeland is not a show about Quinn, Saul or whoever. Homeland is a show about Carrie. The finale is so super-tied, everything is so well done without turning into a shooting-and-exploding show, leaving many holes behind and that's it. Things may have taken a very simplistic resolution, but things are what they are. And the endind scene is so deliberately touching that I feel like quoting Entertainment Weekly's review: "I loved that final moment, because while so many shows this year have ended episodes or entire seasons with ambiguous deaths solely for shock value, this one felt different." And deeply, deeply honest.
Quite possibly the worse written series I've ever watched, it lacks everything that is good, from good cast and characters to compelling plots. Mix expressionless teenagers, all of them pretty archetypical, with a nonsense family mystery story and you get this silly slasher in which not even a single episode can be considered decent.
The Strain's second season is not bad, it's just not what we all wanted it to be. The addendum of Hannibal's Vincenzo Natali on the last two episodes created a lot of expectation. However, character development remains poor, and some plots are just useless.
This is so much better than season 1, it's almost unbelievable. It's still cheesy and affected with this impactant soap-opera aura, but the drama is good and the addendum of modern middle-eastern conflict plot makes this second (and maybe last) season very enjoyable.
It has deep structural problems, but the addition of Jeffrey Dean Morgan and the added action made this a better season than the first. Also, Pierce Gagnon's gotta be the cutest android ever made.
I have no idea what the hackers jokes are about, but of one thing I'm sure: paranoia rules this show like no other. And that's damn fun.
Narco's absurdly addictive and is very historically accurate. It loses strength on the last act, but the fast-paced storyline shall never leave you bored. Wagner Moura's characterization as the most powerful drug lord of all times is good and oftentimes scary, like he's some kind of untouchable entity, and the similarities achieved by Moura reach small dayly life traces. This is a series that could have gone from fantastic to horrendous, but when choosing going straight and simple on Padilha's hands it shows all its strengths - and weaknesses.
It's polished enough to be fun, it's got a fantastic assemble of scary kids and it's got two or three very good episodes. It trips on its own trips, though, and is not good enough to be unforgettable, but it's not bad enough to be unwatchable.
One or two strikingly funny episodes don't save The Brink from being a silly political satire with no backbone.
As superbly written and acted this series is, Rectify's triumph remains on the intimate character work and compelling dialogues. Nonetheless, despite Daniel's via-crucis throughout the previous seasons, Rectify is truly about grace, forgiveness and the holiness of finitude. This has been the strongest season of Rectify ever, and the best show of 2015 so far. It's a small crate of a hidden trasure only a few can find.
