Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
4/5 100% Trauma: Series 1 (TV, 2018) It is a tremendous performance from Simm, who manages to make Bowker's self-loathing seep out of his pores.‐ Times (UK)

2/5 73% Collateral: Miniseries (TV, 2018) In trying to show the why beneath the what, Hare has succeeded only in presenting us with cliché and caricature.‐ Times (UK)

69% Sense8: Season 1 (TV, 2015) Sense8? Senseless.‐ Independent (UK)

88% The Enfield Haunting: Season 1 (TV, 2015) The scares - creepy man appearing in the mirror, trinkets piled in the middle of the sitting room - work nicely and the balance between what could be real and what is imagined in the characters' heads is handled well.‐ Independent (UK)

89% HUMANS: Season 1 (TV, 2015) The changing nature of people's relationships with the synths (and vice versa) formed the crux of the second episode of [this] entertaining-but-don't-think-about-it-too-hard Humans.‐ Independent (UK)

55% The Casual Vacancy: Season 1 (TV, 2015) If you were after subtlety on your Sunday evening, Pagford wasn't the place. This was The Land That Subtext Forgot. Sadly it was just all too predictable. ‐ Independent (UK)

97% Hannibal: Season 3 (TV, 2015) Hannibal remains a show that flirts dangerously with being very silly, however it struts about with such devil-may-care panache that it gets away with pretty much everything it wants to. ‐ Independent (UK)

88% Game of Thrones: Season 5 - The Dance of Dragons (TV Episode) People will no doubt brand me a silly person for saying this but if everyone in Game of Thrones could just stop dying for five minutes, that would be fab.‐ Independent (UK)

100% Game of Thrones: Season 5 - Hardhome (TV Episode) Crammed with genuinely haunting moments (watching Borgen's Birgitte Hjort Sørensen's all too brief appearance ended by a rabble of undead children will take some shifting from the mind's eye) the action was so intense.‐ Independent (UK)

58% Game of Thrones: Season 5 - Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken (TV Episode) Personally, I'd really like Game of Thrones to be a good 30-40 per cent less weird about women (and having Warrior Princess fighting girls in Dorne isn't quite what I'm after, chaps).‐ Independent (UK)

100% Game of Thrones: Season 5 - Sons of the Harpy (TV Episode) The award for the creepiest Game of Thrones kiss ever goes to Sansa and Petyr 'definitely Irish now' Baelish (Aidan Gillen, who is definitely Irish).‐ Independent (UK)

22% Between: Season 1 (TV, 2015) What is it that the adults of Pretty Lake are dying from? It's not excitement, that's for sure.‐ Independent (UK)

5/5 98% Marvel's Daredevil: Season 1 (TV, 2015) I can say that Daredevil is superb television (do we call it television? Superb laptop? Internet? Streaming? Anyway, it's superb). And, full disclosure, I am no Marvel buff - my opinion is that of the average TV (laptop/internet/stream) viewer.‐ Independent (UK)

74% True Detective : Season 2 - The Western Book of the Dead (TV Episode) Not a thrilling opener but promise galore.‐ Independent (UK)

75% The Affair: Season 1 - 3 (TV Episode) I just wish I could root for the two married people indulging in a destructive affair. Is that too much to ask for?‐ Independent (UK)

87% The Walking Dead: Season 3 - This Sorrowful Life (TV Episode) This was Merle's episode. To be honest, it's been Merle's series.‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
