Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
96% The Man in the High Castle: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's a bold, intriguing, visually-impressive effort. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Nov 17, 2015
46% Chicago Med: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Even graded on the Dick Wolf Franchise Curve, Chicago Med is spectacularly underwhelming. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Nov 17, 2015
51% Into the Badlands: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's fun, it's escapist thrill-seeking and, in its penchant for violence and blood, it's a perfect companion series to The Walking Dead, while maintaining its own distinct identity. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Nov 16, 2015
28% Agent X: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "TNT had a chance to get out in front of this thing and claim it as a spoof, but apparently that didn't occur to them. So unfortunately Agent X remains an intentional drama, one that is insanely but deliciously bad. Hilariously bad. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Nov 3, 2015
16% Wicked City: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The tone-deafness of the drama is apparent within mere minutes. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 27, 2015
100% Master of None: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Ansari has something strong here -- a project he puts his stamp on a little bit at a time, building a funny world you want to enter and watch him "grow up" in. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 23, 2015
98% Game of Thrones: Season 5 (TV, 2015) "There is indeed much to love in this series, even as it lurches forward in season five. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 21, 2015
13% Truth Be Told: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Let's go for the obvious here because that's exactly what Truth Be Told would do: Truth be told, this show is terrible. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 19, 2015
96% You're the Worst: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "The first two episodes of the second season are exceptionally funny. I should know; I watched them twice. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 15, 2015
100% The Knick: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "The Knick is more than just a visual tour de force. The writing continues to stand out, and the characters evolve, while the acting remains top-notch. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 14, 2015
89% The Walking Dead: Season 6 (TV, 2015) "Here's hoping the epic opening to season six points to a new, unfamiliar direction. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 12, 2015
100% Fargo: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Strap yourselves in, Fargo is back in a big, bold way. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 7, 2015
96% The Affair: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Here, everybody continues to shine. And that might be the ultimate takeaway. The combined performances here are exceptional. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 28, 2015
83% Quantico: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "You should definitely give Quantico a look if you're interested in a little mindless eye candy that has enough hooks of a larger mystery to possibly keep you entertained week to week. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 28, 2015
38% The Player: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "NBC dealt one too many cards from the deck because The Player is basically absurd with a dollop of stupid on top and a whole bunch of empty tossed in for filler. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 25, 2015
68% Grandfathered: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Grandfathered feels as slick, predictable and manipulative as possible. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 22, 2015
93% The Grinder: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Created and written by Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul, this is a series that has a blueprint for success. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 22, 2015
29% Minority Report: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It all seems so immediately tiring and ridiculous. I wanted the movie back, but mostly I kept thinking that I'd rather watch any episode of CBS' Person of Interest. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 21, 2015
90% Casual: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's funny, strongly realized, self-assured and a joy to watch. You want another when the last episode is over. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 16, 2015
66% Blindspot: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Blindspot has more than enough going for it early on, despite some real bouts of silliness. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 15, 2015
49% The Bastard Executioner: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "One of the interesting bits about watching Bastard Executioner unfold is how it doesn't really play into the preconceptions some people might have about Sutter and what he might be up to in this new venture. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 14, 2015
78% Narcos: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "What Narcos has going for it is that Escobar's story is, on so many levels, so stunning and strange, that the drama doesn't have to be truncated or rushed, and can cover far more than just his rise and fall. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 21, 2015
97% Show Me a Hero: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The core elements of the story are universal and the show's most impressive achievement is making them relevant and dramatic and entertaining all at the same time. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 5, 2015
76% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Obstacles abound, but so does dramatic potential. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 5, 2015
59% Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Sometimes a TV series comes along with a premise that seems perfect for the times. FX's superb, funny and wonderfully spot-on Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, created by and starring Denis Leary, is that kind of series. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 17, 2015
74% Masters of Sex: Season 3 (TV, 2015) "Here's hoping the publication of Human Sexual Response energizes the series and takes the spotlight off the kids while simultaneously - one can hope - providing new territory for Masters to traverse without making anyone reach for the remote. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 13, 2015
88% HUMANS: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "We've certainly seen plenty of robots wreaking havoc on humanity. But Humans finds a way to bring intrigue to a very familiar conflict. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 24, 2015
97% Game of Thrones: Season 5 Episode 10 "Game of Thrones must be doing something right. I think it has something to do with the story being more than whatever happens in a finale. It's a journey - and it doesn't need a cliffhanger to be compelling in a traditional sense. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 15, 2015
65% True Detective : Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Pizzolatto has inexplicably made every character in this season spout clipped and elliptical phrases. They begin to pile up so quickly that you soon realize there's no flow to the characters, no realism. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 12, 2015
96% Orange is the New Black: Season 3 (TV, 2015) "While it always bears watching how well Kohan's shows keep on the rails over the course of their run, season three of Orange kicks off as impressively, confidently and excellently as ever. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 1, 2015
56% Aquarius: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Maybe we should all take a break from watching the impossible 60s for a while. It's been done to death, and all that leaves is the copycat impression of well-worn tropes and stereotypes. Even Duchovny can't spin that into something fresh. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 28, 2015
92% Mad Men: Season 7 Episode 14 "There was so much in that finale to grasp onto, remember and dissect. Ideally, that's how you want to go out. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 18, 2015
86% Wayward Pines: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Watch them all or watch none -- the weirdness of this show only works as you get deeper into it. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 11, 2015
55% Grace and Frankie: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "You might find yourself asking why it exists at all. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 6, 2015
30% Happyish: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The most frustrating part about Happyish is that there's a good show in there somewhere. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 26, 2015
100% Veep: Season 4 (TV, 2015) "With Meyer as president, Veep has upped its game, just as it has upped the stakes (and mistakes) that Meyer and her staff must overcome. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 13, 2015
100% Silicon Valley: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Silicon Valley comes out of the gates as strong as its remarkable freshman season, skewering people, places, ideas and the pomposity of the entire tech world. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 13, 2015
91% Louie: Season 5 (TV, 2015) "It remains, as ever, a wholly original concoction that's a thing of odd beauty. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 11, 2015
98% Marvel's Daredevil: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Because it's on Netflix, it has the capacity to be something greater, untethered to ratings. But ultimately it's very purple in its prose, yearning to be film noir, but - lacking the writing or grit to achieve that - playing more like hokey blood porn. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 9, 2015
52% American Odyssey: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "American Odyssey wants to be scary and big and so deep and horrible in the realm of conspiracies... In the process, it drops an anvil on viewers' heads. And then it becomes ridiculous. And then, well, there are so many other things to watch. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 6, 2015
97% Younger: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The cast, and Star's breezy but never dumb writing, makes Younger an entertaining half-hour comedy that feels far more mature than most rookies out there. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 31, 2015
96% Mad Men: Season 7 Episode 8 ""Severance" smartly repositions Mad Men on the existential fast track, tackling familiar themes of death, aging, happiness and identity. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 30, 2015
73% Big Time in Hollywood, FL: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Big Time in Hollywood, FL works best because it takes a preposterous comic situation and turns it into a preposterous dramatic arc, which frees the show from any sitcom restraints and allows it to spoof both tired dramas and predictable comedies. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 26, 2015
58% Drunk History: Season 1 (TV, 2013) "You haven't had this much silly fun over a simple idea in a long time. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 13, 2015
28% The Royals: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Even on a campy soap opera, viewers need to be invested in and care about the characters. That's extremely hard to do here, since no one behaves like an actual human being. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 12, 2015
66% The Returned (US): Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Basically what you have in the American remake of The Returned is a hologram of the original -- a soulless, artless, passionless and pointless copy. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 10, 2015
94% Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "What infuses the entire series with sweetness and positivity is Kemper's never-flagging, completely endearing portrayal of Kimmy, who doesn't want to be a victim and doesn't want to waste another day of her life. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 9, 2015
86% Broadchurch: Series 2 (TV, 2015) "It feels good to get back to the seaside of Broadchurch and, in a strange way, burrow back into the dark and sad secrets still hiding there. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 5, 2015
100% Billy & Billie: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "If Billy and Billie become "regular" relationship partners, the premise will need to expand. In the meantime, LaBute, Brody and Joyce have given us enough reason to keep watching. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 3, 2015
95% Battle Creek: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Battle Creek is the kind of show where the crimes are just interesting enough to keep you hanging in there, but it's the cast and the workplace dramedy setting that hook you. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
