Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
D+ 35% Scorpion: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " Scorpion feels like a world cut down to types. Look no further than the premise: It's partly a dramatization of the generation gap, all of culture distilled to these free-spirited tech-savvy millennials and their straitlaced boomer handler. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 22, 2014
A- 80% Vicious: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " Vicious is an apotheosis of the form: Its theatricality is expert, its rote insult comedy is delicious but not unyielding, and its unhip datedness is mined for exactly that quality. " — AV Club
Posted Jun 27, 2014
C+ 94% The Normal Heart (2014) " Unfortunately, powerful as the play is, Ryan Murphy's adaptation of it makes for a cinematic tearjerker that's more relentless than it is masterful." — AV Club
Posted May 22, 2014
A 92% Louie: Season 4 (TV, 2014) " Mission accomplished. Louie season four is as good as ever, and sometimes it's slightly different. " — AV Club
Posted May 5, 2014
A- 100% Veep: Season 3 (TV, 2014) " Veep has become the clearest heir to 30 Rock and Arrested Development, and specific bits throughout the season recall both series. " — AV Club
Posted Apr 2, 2014
C+ 36% Believe: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " Believe is thoroughly devoted to its feel-good ideals, like cascading compassion and non-violence. " — AV Club
Posted Mar 10, 2014
C- 65% The Red Road: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " It's intriguing for a moment. But then you remember that all of this really has happened before-and you see the distance from Top Of The Lake to here. " — AV Club
Posted Feb 27, 2014
C- 29% Chozen: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " Chozen wants credit for a provocative protagonist without doing the work of actually challenging any norms. " — AV Club
Posted Jan 13, 2014
B+ 73% Atlantis: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " Atlantis is a rollicking good time, a mixture of pulp fantasy and mystery adventures à la Sleepy Hollow and Thor. " — AV Club
Posted Nov 21, 2013
B- 67% Full Circle: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " There's an airlessness to Full Circle that vacuum-packs these performances but leaves little real life. " — AV Club
Posted Oct 14, 2013
C+ —— Mike & Molly: Season 2 (TV, 2011-2012) " Laughs wouldn't be such a bad thing, though, considering how empty the show's become. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 30, 2013
C+ 40% Glee: Season 5 (TV, 2013-2014) " "Love Love Love" isn't much of an episode, much less a premiere, but it's one hell of an antacid. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 27, 2013
C+ 29% Lucky 7: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " With its easy irony and moral determinism, Lucky 7 is too thin to be anything but a watered-down version of Luck. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 23, 2013
B- 68% Parade's End: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " The minute-to-minute editing looks pretty common, and the tonal shifts are like cold splashes, but pull back and it's more interesting. " — AV Club
Posted Feb 26, 2013
A- 93% Enlightened: Season 2 (TV, 2013) " Enlightened revels in the mud between what people say and what people do. " — AV Club
Posted Jan 13, 2013
D+ 26% Emily Owens, M.D.: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) " Not only has all of this been done by the likes of Grey's Anatomy - the show Emily Owens' copied off of in school - but it's all been done by the hospital comedies making fun of those shows. " — AV Club
Posted Oct 16, 2012
B+ 95% Call the Midwife: Season 1 (TV, 2012) " Call The Midwife is a show to curl up with before the work week. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 30, 2012
B —— Web Therapy: Season 2 (TV, 2012) " Web Therapy saves its savagery for its center, because on top of everything else, it's one hell of a character study. " — AV Club
Posted Jul 2, 2012
C- 45% GCB: Season 1 (TV, 2012) " A soap opera that doesn't go overboard so much as it falls asleep in the sun. " — AV Club
Posted Mar 4, 2012
D+ 19% Are You There, Chelsea?: Season 1 (TV, 2012) " Prepon just doesn't have Handler's facility with arid disdain, and weirder still, Handler herself doesn't even seem to have her voice down on this show. " — AV Club
