B- 71% Homeland: Season 7 Episode 2 "The thing is, this entire arc felt like a total distraction...So far, something just feels off about the season, and I'm not talking about the conspiracy that's unfolding. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 21, 2018
B 89% Homeland: Season 7 Episode 1 "These scenes paint her as the clear megalomaniacal villain of the season, so much so it makes you almost understand why Brett O'Keefe (Jake Weber) keeps ranting to his camera despite being on the run. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 12, 2018
B 100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "At least it was a fun one, and one that lays the groundwork for some intriguing arcs to come, as every character becomes embroiled in new conflicts with higher stakes. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Dec 27, 2017
A- 82% Marvel's Runaways: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) "It blends comic-book adventures with the angst of adolescence, flashy superheroics with uneasy's not perfect, but it's smart. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Nov 21, 2017
A- 97% American Vandal: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "... as an examination of today's teen culture, it's surprisingly perceptive. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 25, 2017
C 42% Still Star-Crossed: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Shondaland's latest product is neither soapy romance nor gut-wrenching tragedy, but a sluggish, stilted mess. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted May 25, 2017
B+ 88% I Am Heath Ledger (2017) "It paints an affecting, impressionistic portrait of the actor's singular vision and devotion to his work. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted May 17, 2017
A- 100% Hot Girls Wanted: Turned On: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "It's like the New York Times' "Modern Love" columns, but captured, deftly and often beautifully, on camera. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Apr 26, 2017
B+ 79% The White Princess: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The series grounds itself in the journey of its titular heroine with a sharp understanding of a new queen's difficult, often precarious position. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly

B 67% Homeland: Season 6 Episode 12 "So did this finale work for a season that brought everyone home? In some ways, yes. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Apr 10, 2017
C+ 25% Imaginary Mary: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Poor Jenna Elfman, trapped yet again in a lifeless comedy. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Apr 5, 2017
B 100% Homeland: Season 6 Episode 10 "It's fitting that Quinn, it appears, will be the key to unraveling the entire conspiracy -- and while I'm happy his story has finally merged back with Carrie's, it's a risk to put so much of season 6 on his wounded shoulders. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Mar 27, 2017

Posted Mar 6, 2017
B+ 62% The Arrangement: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Evangelista certainly makes an impression. She plays a muted desperation that makes her ultimate decision to accept the proposal believable. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Mar 3, 2017
B+ 100% Homeland: Season 6 Episode 6 "Sometimes, Homeland goes big to underline the dangers of playing the spy game.

Posted Feb 27, 2017
C 35% Taken: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Taken may have been a surprise hit in theaters, but this Taken shows none of that inventiveness or spark. In fact, it's boring, and no amount of bloodshed or gunfire can reverse that. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 24, 2017

Posted Feb 13, 2017
B- 62% Powerless: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "What's keeping Powerless from flying up, up, and away isn't the performances; its unevenness is more likely caused by the hoops the series has had to jump through since getting a pilot order from the Peacock. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 1, 2017
B 62% Superior Donuts: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Superior Donuts has the right ingredients to make a consistently funny show that, more importantly, feels of its time, focusing less on nostalgia and more on change. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Feb 1, 2017

B 100% Supergirl: Season 2 (TV, 2016-2017) "The hour shines most when it focuses on Kara's struggle. Benoist, as vibrant as ever, conveys both Kara's pleasure at being who she is and the pain of having that responsibility -- a challenging line to walk. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly

67% Modern Family: Season 7 (TV, 2015-2016) "The show may have stumbled off of its Emmys throne last weekend, but it's still running on the same formula it's always run on. The family members support each other, even when things get out of hand. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly

" ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 19, 2015
100% Homeland: Season 5 Episode 2 "Luckily, there's an underlying theme throughout these two opening episodes that's been electrifying the show so far, and that's the question of loyalty. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Posted Oct 12, 2015
93% Homeland: Season 5 Episode 1 "Whatever happens, it'll make for compelling TV, and Homeland has laid the groundwork for another edge-of-your-seat season with this premiere. " ‐ Entertainment Weekly
