Every now and then, Simmons will be back onscreen working opposite Williams or, as a new friend our Howard makes in his travels, James Cromwell, and Counterpart will spark back to life again. But far too often, it feels like a star vehicle determined to prove it’s anything but--and squandering its most valuable resource as a result.

I wish I could watch a Prime-world version of Counterpart. But we do not have two worlds, so instead I will keep watching the version of Counterpart we do have, and enjoy it for the good things it offers, like Simmons’s performance, the moments of plot surprise, and the many, many beautiful winter coats.

“Counterpart” lends enough emotional oomph to its expanding story to justify further investment in a smart, promising series.

The show is so good at grounding its drama that somehow the idea of second, parallel reality just seems like a very normal, possible thing.

The main attraction in Season 2 remains J.K. Simmons’s crafty, quiet portrayal of the two spies named Howard Silk.

Counterpart has grown beyond its premise and is still one of the best shows on television, even if we don't get the Howards in the same room together.
