Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
B+ 100% Teen Wolf: Season 3 (TV, 2013) " The show is one of the more entertaining supernatural larks on television, accomplishing this unlikely feat by way of its likable cast, stylistic visual swagger, and a surprisingly sharp sense of humor. " — AV Club
Posted Mar 25, 2014
B 59% Star-Crossed: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " A lot of heavy lifting for a fluffy teen sci-fi romance, but so far the show acquits itself well, sticking the landing with its romantic moments and politically minded scenes in equal measure. " — AV Club
Posted Feb 19, 2014
C- 59% Chicago PD: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " Chicago P.D. ultimately disappoints by committing the most critical spinoff sin: It fundamentally misunderstands what makes the original work. " — AV Club
Posted Jan 8, 2014
A- 100% Arrow: Season 2 (TV, 2013-2014) " It's all the more impressive that Arrow's character work extends from the core team to its fully realized peripheral characters. " — AV Club
Posted Dec 12, 2013
B+ 100% The Vampire Diaries: Season 5 (TV, 2013-2014) " Yes, this wasn't necessarily a perfect episode of The Vampire Diaries but it feels like the perfect introduction to a season that looks to be filled with changing character dynamics and ever-shifting alliances. " — AV Club
Posted Oct 4, 2013
C —— Revenge: Season 3 (TV, 2013-2014) " That's what this Revenge premiere feels like: A recreation cobbled together after the original, more organic version was somehow lost. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 30, 2013
B 100% Switched at Birth: Season 1 (TV, 2011-2012) " Switched at Birth isn't the most innovative summer show of the season or the most sexy summer show on even its own network, but it might be the one with the most potential for broad appeal. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 11, 2013
B 100% Supernatural: Season 6 (TV, 2010-2011) " It was rather predictable (other than Dean spiking his blood, which I thought was a nicely revealed surprise) but had the familiar rhythms of a well-constructed episode of Supernatural, and the jokes landed. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 10, 2013
B- 80% Pretty Little Liars: Season 2 (TV, 2011-2012) " I'm not sure if it's the perfectly spaced scheduling or the perfectly glacial storytelling... but [PLL] feels like it's been on the air forever. When I heard season two was about to start I had two main reactions: Ugh, already? And...only season two? " — AV Club
Posted Sep 9, 2013
B 70% Suits: Season 3 (TV, 2013-2014) " Suits has more internal forward momentum than most anything else on television right now, and when it's on, like it mostly is here, it just cooks. " — AV Club
Posted Jul 16, 2013
C- 26% Camp: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " The result is a show unmoored, simultaneously trying on several different tones but not quite yet finding one that fits. " — AV Club
Posted Jul 10, 2013
C- 37% Mistresses: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " Too narratively banal to be memorable and not nearly sexy enough to make up for its narrative shortcomings. " — AV Club
Posted Jun 3, 2013
C 22% Malibu Country: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) " Fish-out-of-water comedies are basically predicated on using stereotypes to mine humor, but there has to be a more artful way to do it than this, or at least less eye-rolling stereotypes to feature. " — AV Club
Posted Nov 10, 2012
D+ 26% Emily Owens, M.D.: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) " The biggest disaster here is not the somewhat tired premise as much as the title character that premise revolves around. " — AV Club
Posted Oct 16, 2012
B- 83% The Vampire Diaries: Season 4 (TV, 2012-2013) " The best thing about this episode for me was the juxtaposition between Stefan and Damon's characters and how delicately balanced it was despite the high stakes. " — AV Club
Posted Oct 11, 2012
B 50% Revenge: Season 2 (TV, 2012-2013) " The heart of the show remains the same, and is even growing stronger as the episodes tick along. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 30, 2012
A- —— Covert Affairs: Season 3 (TV, 2012) " The biggest, smartest change the writers made was to give Annie a purpose, a tangible season-long arc that finally made the central character the most interesting aspect of the show. " — AV Club
Posted Jul 10, 2012
B+ 82% True Blood: Season 5 (TV, 2012) " Despite its HBO pedigree and awards history, the only thing it seems True Blood might have ever been trying to be is a fun show. " — AV Club
Posted Jun 10, 2012
C 60% Grey's Anatomy: Season 8 (TV, 2011-2012) " Just because a show is meant to be fun doesn't mean it shouldn't have standards, and this episode just simply didn't measure up. " — AV Club
Posted Feb 3, 2012
B+ —— One Tree Hill: Season 9 (TV, 2012) " It was never really great, was often very bad, and yet was somehow consistently kind of fun and satisfying. " — AV Club
Posted Jan 11, 2012
B 81% Revenge: Season 1 (TV, 2011-2012) " Despite the somewhat incongruously grave tone, I found myself quietly entranced with this world. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 21, 2011
A 100% The Vampire Diaries: Season 3 (TV, 2011-2012) " The season three premiere took those character beats developed last season and not only executed them perfectly but also built upon that foundation. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 15, 2011
C+ 48% Ringer: Season 1 (TV, 2011) " The tone is attempting to be a sort of CW-meets-noir but comes off as more Lifetime-movie noir, which will undoubtedly drive many people crazy, but I actually found this rather fun and almost endearing in its lack of subtlety. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 13, 2011
B- —— Drop Dead Diva: Season 3 (TV, 2011) " Once you look past the trappings of the hokey premise (and the often generic legal proceedings) there is a central emotional core of reinvention and emotional growth to the show that easily sucks you in. " — AV Club
Posted Jun 19, 2011
C- —— One Tree Hill: Season 8 (TV, 2010-2011) " If a show doesn't have any more stories to tell, in the end it might just be better to put them out of their misery. " — AV Club
Posted Sep 14, 2010
B- 68% The Vampire Diaries: Season 1 (TV, 2009-2010) " There's a lot more story to tell here, so this is only the beginning, but I do wish that beginning had been stronger. " — AV Club
