45% Z Nation: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "It was probably inevitable, given the monster success of AMC's The Walking Dead, that another zombie horror series would be forthcoming ... but I'd hoped for something a little less slapdash and cheeseball than Syfy's Z Nation " ‐ TV Guide

65% Me, Myself & I: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Despite Moynihan's considerable appeal as the fulcrum of these sappy, fragmented vignettes, you might feel tempted before even the first episode is over to tell Alex to get over he, himself and him. " ‐ TV Insider
