    THE AFFAIR:
    1.01 [A-] “1”
    1.02 [B ] “2”
    1.03 [B-] “3”
    1.04 [A-] “4”
    1.05 [B ] “5”

    1.07 [B+] “7”
    1.08 [B-] “8”
    1.09 [B ] “9”
    1.10 [B ] “10”
    Season Grade: B
    When this series focused on… uh, the affair itself, it was very
    powerful and compelling television. When it strayed into other areas,
    sometimes it went wrong. The utilization of the dual perspectives
    became inconsistent and confusing later in the season.

    THE AMERICANS:
    3.01 [B-] “EST Men”
    3.02 [B-] “Baggage”
    3.03 [B+] “Open House”
    3.04 [C+] “Dimebag”
    3.05 [C+] “Salang Pass”
    3.06 [C ] “Born Again”

    BETTER CALL SAUL:
    1.01 [B+] “Uno”
    1.02 [B-] “Mijo”
    1.03 [B ] “Nacho”
    1.04 [B+] “Hero”
    1.05 [C+] “Alpine Shepherd Boy”
    1.06 [B+] “Five-O”
    1.07 [C+] “Bingo”
    1.08 [B+] “RICO”

    1.09 [A ] “Pimento”

    1.10 [B ] “Marco”

    Season Grade: B

    BLOODLINE:
    1.01 [C+] “Part 1”
    1.02 [B ] “Part 2”

    1.03 [B-] “Part 3”

    1.04 [B-] “Part 4”

    1.05 [B ] “Part 5”

    1.06 [B-] “Part 6”
    1.07 [C+] “Part 7”

    1.08 [B+] “Part 8”

    1.09 [B+] “Part 9”
    1.10 [A-] “Part 10”
    1.11 [A ] “Part 11”
    1.12 [A-] “Part 12”
    1.13 [A-] “Part 13”
    Season Grade: B

    THE BRIDGE:
    2.01 [B ] “Yankee”
    2.02 [B ] “Ghost of a Flea”
    2.03 [B-] “Sorrowsworn”
    2.04 [B ] “The Acorn”
    2.05 [B-] “Eye of the Deep”
    2.06 [B ] “Harvest of Souls”
    2.07 [B+] “Lamia”
    2.08 [B-] “Goliath”
    2.09 [B ] “Rakshasa”

    2.10 [B-] “Eidolon”

    2.11 [B+] “Beholder”
    2.12 [C+] “Quetzalcoatl”
    2.13 [C+] “Jubliex”
    Season Grade: B-
    The Bridge has a strong, diverse cast of characters played by a
    superb cast and putting them on screen is always entertaining. However,
    this season was merely average due to a big decline on the writing side
    compared to Season 1. The storyline was simply not that interesting
    and the ‘neutering’ of the Sonya Cross character was very disappointing.

    FARGO:

    GAME OF THRONES:
    5.01 [C+] “The Wars to Come”
    5.02 [B ] “The House Of Black And White”
    5.03 [B+] “High Sparrow”
    5.04 [A-] “The Sons of the Harpy”
    5.05 [B-] “Kill the Boy”
    5.06 [B ] “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken”
    5.07 [B ] “The Gift”
    5.08 [A ] “Hardhome”
    5.09 [A ] “The Dance of Dragons”
    5.10 [A ] “Mother’s Mercy”
    Season Grade: B+

    HOMELAND:
    4.01 [B+] “The Drone Queen”
    4.02 [B ] “Trylon and Perisphere”

    4.03 [A-] “Shalwar Kameez”
    4.04 [B+] “Iron in the Fire”

    4.05 [B ] “About a Boy”
    4.06 [A ] “From A to B and Back Again”

    4.07 [A-] “Redux”

    4.08 [A ] “Halfway to a Donut”

    4.09 [A ] “There’s Something Else Going On”

    4.10 [A ] “13 Hours in Islamabad”
    4.11 [B+] “Krieg Nicht Lieb”

    4.12 [B ] “Long Time Coming”
    Season Grade: A-
    As is typical for Homeland, the acting and directing were
    top-shelf, and this season was extremely thrilling with a storyline that
    started out strong and only escalated in intensity throughout the
    season. It is Homeland’s most satisfying season as a whole since Season
    1.

    HOUSE OF CARDS:
    3.01 [B ] “Chapter 27”
    3.02 [B+] “Chapter 28”
    3.03 [B-] “Chapter 29”
    3.04 [B ] “Chapter 30”

    3.05 [C+] “Chapter 31”
    3.06 [B ] “Chapter 32”

    3.07 [C+] “Chapter 33”
    3.08 [B ] “Chapter 34”
    3.09 [C+] “Chapter 35”
    3.10 [B-] “Chapter 36”

    3.11 [B-] “Chapter 37”

    3.12 [B+] “Chapter 38”

    3.13 [B ] “Chapter 39”

    Season Grade: B-

    House of Cards is better at the broad strokes than the details and
    the nuances. As such, this season would have benefitted very much from
    an accelerated timeline. I would have had this season go all the way
    through Frank’s re-election campaign, as too much time was spent on
    mediocre sub-plots that didn’t justify the time invested.

    THE KNICK:
    1.01 [A-] “Method and Madness”
    1.02 [B ] “Mr. Paris Shoes”
    1.03 [B+] “The Busy Flea”
    1.04 [B-] “Where’s The Dignity?”
    1.05 [B ] “They Capture the Heat”
    1.06 [A-] “Start Calling Me Dad”

    1.07 [A-] “Get the Rope”

    1.08 [B ] “Working Late a Lot”

    1.09 [B ] “The Golden Lotus”

    1.10 [A-] “Crutchfield”

    Season Grade: B+

    Clive Owen and director Steven Soderbergh do tremendous work; they
    are the stars for sure, but the pleasant surprise was the strength of
    the supporting cast/characters as well. And that soundtrack, so so
    good!

    THE LEFTOVERS:
    1.01 [B ] “Pilot”
    1.02 [B-] “Penguin One, Us Zero”
    1.03 [A ] “Two Boats and a Helicopter”
    1.04 [C+] “B.J. and the A.C.”
    1.05 [A-] “Gladys”
    1.06 [A-] “Guest”
    1.07 [B-] “Solace for Tired Feet”
    1.08 [A-] “Cairo”
    1.09 [A-] “The Garveys at Their Best”
    1.10 [A-] “The Prodigal Son Returns”
    Season Grade: B+
    This is not a perfect show, and many flaws have been pointed out by
    detractors, some of which are quite valid. But, if the premise and tone
    of the show interest you enough for you to ‘buy in’, it becomes quite
    rewarding and the good far outweighs the bad. There were some times of
    real brilliance on display.

    MASTERS OF SEX:
    2.01 [A-] “Parallax”
    2.02 [B-] “Kyrie Eleison”
    2.03 [A-] “Fight”
    2.04 [B+] “Dirty Jobs”
    2.05 [B ] “Giants”
    2.06 [B ] “Blackbird”
    2.07 [C+] “Asterion”
    2.08 [C+] “Mirror, Mirror”
    2.09 [B-] “Story of My Life”
    2.10 [B-] “Below the Belt”
    2.11 [B ] “One for the Money, Two for the Show”
    2.12 [B+] “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”
    Season Grade: B-

    I think I liked the supporting players more than the mains this
    season. More often than not, the plights of Masters and Johnson did not
    hold my interest, particularly Masters whose character arcs were very
    uninspiring.

    ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK:
    2.01 [B+] “Thirsty Bird”
    2.02 [B-] “Looks Blue, Tastes Red”
    2.03 [B ] “Hugs Can Be Deceiving”
    2.04 [A-] “A Whole Other Hole”
    2.05 [B-] “Low Self Esteem City”
    2.06 [B ] “You Also Have a Pizza”
    2.07 [B-] “Comic Sans”
    2.08 [B-] “Appropriately Sized Pots”
    2.09 [A-] “40 OZ of Furlough”
    2.10 [B+] “Little Moustachioed Shit”
    2.11 [B+] “Take a Break From Your Values”
    2.12 [B ] “It Was the Change”
    2.13 [A ] “We Have Manners. We’re Polite.”
    Season Grade: B
    I rate it slightly below Season 1. I never felt the writing in this
    season quite reached the momentum that Season 1 did. Still, the humor
    and colorful characters ensure that every episode is enjoyable. Not
    that it was a major negative, as the whole cast is so strong, but I
    didn’t think the major scaling back of Piper as a central character was
    beneficial.

    SILICON VALLEY:
    2.01 [B+] “Sand Hill Shuffle”
    2.02 [B ] “Runaway Devaluation”
    2.03 [B ] “Bad Money”
    2.04 [B ] “The Lady”
    2.05 [A-] “Server Space”
    2.06 [B+] “Homicide”
    2.07 [B+] “Adult Content”
    2.08 [B-] “White Hat/Black Hat”
    2.09 [B+] “Binding Arbitration”

    2.10 [A-] “”

    Season Grade: B+

    TRUE DETECTIVE:

    VEEP:
    4.01 [B+] “Joint Sessions”
    4.02 [A-] “East Wing”
    4.03 [B+] “Data”
    4.04 [A-] “Tehran”
    4.05 [A ] “Convention”
    4.06 [B+] “Storms and Pancakes”
    4.07 [B+] “Mommy Meyer”
    4.08 [A-] “B/ill”
    4.09 [A-] “Testimony”
    4.10 [A ] “Election Night”
    Season Grade: A-
