Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
54% Animals: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It's in that cleverness that Animals could develop a loyal audience, but its very specific tone and alienating animation also makes it a hard sell. Luckily for those in the former camp there will be time to spread the word. " ‐ TheWrap
Posted Feb 8, 2016
68% Madoff: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Hang in there with Madoff, and a surprisingly humane narrative awaits. " ‐ TheWrap
Posted Feb 3, 2016
91% Grease: Live "As far as overall theatrical-to-TV events go though, Grease Live was a big old win in every possible column. " ‐ TheWrap
Posted Feb 1, 2016
77% Outsiders: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "If you can get past the thick accents there's a wealth of multifaceted characters to root for and enough story to keep you entertained during the inaugural run. " ‐ TheWrap
Posted Jan 29, 2016
7.5/10 82% You, Me and the Apocalypse: Series 1 (TV, 2015) "At its core, You, Me and the Apocalypse is an interesting series with a unique premise unlike anything else currently on television. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jan 28, 2016
57% The X-Files: Season 10 (TV, 2016) "Regardless, hungry fans are probably thrilled to have the show back in whatever capacity. The smartest thing that this revival does is play to those fans, who will forgive its flaws, while limiting the run to a six-episode taste. " ‐ TheWrap
Posted Jan 25, 2016
41% Angel From Hell: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "There is certainly enough charm and setup in Angel From Hell to build up a laugh-out-loud series, but whether audiences will want to stick with it during a jam-packed midseason schedule after just an okay pilot remains to be seen. " ‐ TheWrap
Posted Jan 8, 2016
97% American Crime: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "You're left with an unsettling feeling that even when the truth does surface the story won't be tied up with a neat little bow as it would be in so many other crime dramas on television. " ‐ TheWrap
Posted Jan 6, 2016
97% Making a Murderer: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's a fitting entry for Netflix, the king of binge-watching, as it's hard to hit pause on Making a Murderer once it's rolling through the queue. " ‐ TheWrap
Posted Dec 18, 2015
76% The Expanse: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Granted nothing here feels new or pressing, or as intense as an episode of the aforementioned Game of Thrones. But if sweeping, beautiful scenes and expansive stories that take episodes to piece together are your thing, you'll be set with The Expanse. " ‐ TheWrap
Posted Dec 14, 2015
91% The Wiz Live! "The Wiz certainly raised the bar with its fresh and unique take. " ‐ TheWrap
Posted Dec 4, 2015
9/10 80% Scream Queens: Season 1 Episode 5 "The series said farewell to at least one throwaway character, narrowing down the field of potential kills, while also throwing in several horror tropes and making fun of their sheer ridiculousness. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 16, 2015
23% Donny!: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Where Donny! stumbles will be with the inevitable comparisons to David's Curb Your Enthusiasm, the benchmark of success for improvised sitcoms... Donny is more difficult to relate to. " ‐ TheWrap
Posted Nov 10, 2015
60% Flesh and Bone: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Unfortunately the end result is a cast of supporting characters that fall flat without the proper development, and a lead that never quite opens up to the audience. " ‐ TheWrap
Posted Nov 9, 2015
100% Jane the Virgin: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "In the world of Jane the Virgin, reality always takes second place to implausible dramatics, and that's exactly what makes the show work in the first place. " ‐ TheWrap
Posted Oct 12, 2015
100% Fargo: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "The end result isn't just a Fargo 2.0 (or 3.0 depending on your love of film), but an evolved story that takes television to a whole new level. " ‐ TheWrap
Posted Oct 12, 2015
58% American Horror Story: Hotel (TV, 2015) "In short, what's old is new again, a theme many hotels have used in their day. For Horror Story, heading into its fifth season, it sure feels due. " ‐ TheWrap
Posted Oct 7, 2015
7/10 95% Empire: Season 2 (TV, 2015-2016) "Jamal is the new Lucious, Hakeem is the new Jamal, and Cookie is just... well, Cookie. And whether you're into the show's soapy storylines or not, that's just plain old fun to watch. " ‐ IGN Movies

Posted Sep 22, 2015
8/10 29% Minority Report: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's a fast-paced, high-concept idea that may be hard to maintain for a network audience, but one thing the series certainly does is set itself apart from the movie while honoring it. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Sep 21, 2015
49% The Bastard Executioner: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "By Episode 3 that pace and journey shift to relevant and thoughtful, but it sure is an exhaustive journey to finally get there. " ‐ TheWrap
Posted Sep 16, 2015
7/10 49% The Bastard Executioner: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The two-hour pilot takes a long time setting up the show's true intention... But when it does get there, it's a worthy journey of self-preservation and exploration of the human soul. " ‐ IGN Movies

Posted Sep 11, 2015
9/10 60% Wayward Pines: Season 1 Episode 10 "By allowing viewers to rely on their imaginations and not killing it with exposition the tone remained even and interesting, while also opening up the door for a potential second season. Not that we'd necessarily want one; the ending was that good. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jul 24, 2015
6.5/10 54% The Brink: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's easy to see the satire The Brink attempts to display, and so you can't help but root for it to get there. " ‐ IGN Movies

Posted Jun 8, 2015
A+ 82% Orphan Black: Season 3 Episode 7 "Sheila McCarthy as Alison's mom Connie was brilliant casting: Her overbearing, perfectionist ways spoke so much to Alison's composition and stressed-out mannerisms - a classic nature vs. nurture, if you will. " ‐ indieWIRE
Posted May 31, 2015
A 93% Orphan Black: Season 3 Episode 6 "Following last week's installment, which served as a bridge episode, this week's mother of an offering more than made up for 305 in terms of story and execution. " ‐ indieWIRE

B+ 100% Orphan Black: Season 3 Episode 1 "Just when you thought it couldn't get any better than Sarah impersonating Alison in the rehabilitation center comes this week's big switcheroo: Sarah playing Rachel in order to convince Top Side the woman was still in charge. " ‐ indieWIRE
Posted Apr 29, 2015
B 90% Orphan Black: Season 3 Episode 2 "Sure, Ari Millen and Tatiana Maslany did more than their share of this week's heavy lifting, but there was something comforting about watching Felix play nurse to a broken Mrs. S. " ‐ indieWIRE
Posted Apr 29, 2015
7/10 58% The Comedians: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "A fun look into the "other lives" of Billy Crystal and Josh Gad, The Comedians borrows several story elements from series like The Comeback, Extras or even The Office, but it stands out through nuanced comedy and well-formed characters. " ‐ IGN Movies

Posted Mar 2, 2015
5/10 65% The Slap: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "While the premise is interesting in theory, the narration drives home the point a little too well, and will inevitably put off viewers who would rather experience these characters' emotions for themselves rather than be told how to feel. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Feb 12, 2015
8/10 81% Man Seeking Woman: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "By stripping down dating to its bare essentials and then going for the extremes, Man Seeking Woman delivers a funny half hour of comedy unlike anything else currently on television. " ‐ IGN Movies

88% Sons of Anarchy: Season 7 Episode 13 ""Papa's Goods" might have been long -- way past your bedtime kind of long -- but it had everything fans of the show needed in order to say goodbye to Jax Teller and the rest of the SAMCRO gang. " ‐ HitFix
