90% Come Home: Season 1 (TV, 2018) ...what saves the show from becoming yet another study of the machinations of a separation is Eccleston's masterful balancing of tragedy with comedic awkwardness and... screenwriter Danny Brocklehurst's deeply emotional writing... - Scroll.in EDIT

95% The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) The complicated dynamics of Midge and Joel's relationship are extras to the wonderful solo act that is Midge Maisel's successful foray into comedy.

94% GLOW: Season 1 (TV, 2017) GLOW is a throwback to movies about the adorable underdog misfit from the '80s, set against a synth-heavy soundtrack. But in 2017, it is about a lot more. - Scroll.in EDIT

91% Feud: Bette and Joan (TV, 2016-2017) Sarandon looks uncannily like Davis and captures her unapologetic attitude and commitment to perfection with charm and ease. Lange is as much a picture of regal grace as of insecurity and vanity. - Scroll.in EDIT

94% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 1 (TV, 2017) The series is shot in a washed-out and dark colour scheme, adding to the menace and solemnity of every frame... The visual suffocation adds a world of context to the horrifying story. - Scroll.in EDIT

92% American Gods: Season 1 (TV, 2017) The show is a visual spectacle, as one would expect from the man behind the baroque and beautiful series Hannibal. But it is also the core material that has so much to offer. - Scroll.in EDIT

55% Sherlock: Season 4 (TV, 2010-2017) The Six Thatchers is worthy of all the hype, and a powerful comeback. Steer clear of Twitter for a while - as promised, the plot twists are brutal, and anything but elementary. - Scroll.in EDIT

88% Homeland: Season 5 (TV, 2011-2018) Claire Danes is spectacular. She has won two Primetime Emmys and two Golden Globes for her role in the series and it is more than well-deserved. - Scroll.in EDIT
