LA Times Commends Lodge; Paste Power Rankings Include Latest Episode

This week, the Los Angeles Times praises Lodge 49 as “a rare treasure” on TV, while Paste includes the latest episode in its power rankings. Plus, CarterMatt previews next week’s installment. Read on for more:

• The Los Angeles Times observes that Lodge 49‘s “breezy pace and oddball diversions defy easy description. But on a sprawling TV landscape that remains stocked with formulaic procedurals and reboots, a compassionate and character-rich story such as this amounts to a rare treasure.”

Paste praises the show’s latest episode: “Lodge 49 wends its way toward the season—hopefully not series—finale in ‘Something from Nothing,’ once again demonstrating its careful calibration of drama and humor, leisure and work.”

CarterMatt previews the next episode, “Apogee,” observing, “AMC is not giving you all that much in advance of this episode airing, and that seems to be a pretty clear sign that there’s some crazy stuff going down over the course of the hour.”

• Disappointed by this fall’s TV pilots, Decider proclaims that summertime shows like Lodge 49 were “more innovative and interesting” and “seemed like they were created with lots of care and thought.”

• For a recap of Season 1, Episode 8, “Something from Nothing,” check out CarterMatt.
