Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
86% Life: Season 2 (TV, 2008-2009) The pleasure of Life is in watching Damien Lewis do his thing. Crews is the most unique cop on tv now that Vic Mackey has left the scene, and he deserves to keep solving cases.‐ PopMatters

7/10 63% Gracepoint: Season 1 (TV, 2014) It poses challenges for viewers, and for that, we can commend it.‐ PopMatters

5/10 42% Scorpion: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) Scorpion lacks convincing characters: Walter, Happy, and especially Sylvester offer nothing beyond their areas of specialization as a means to identify them.‐ PopMatters

6/10 77% Sleepy Hollow: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) The premiere episode of Sleepy Hollow is far more fun than it has any right to be. ‐ PopMatters

4/10 56% Hostages: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) Hell, Prison Break managed to wring four seasons of ridiculous, pulpy fun out of a narrative dead end. But Hostages starts from a premise even more constrained and takes itself far more seriously.‐ PopMatters

5/10 83% The Mindy Project: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) It just needs sharper writing, and the supporting cast needs to be developed. ‐ PopMatters

7/10 88% Human Target: Season 2 (TV, 2010-2011) Human Target will never be mistaken for a great, complex or provocative show, but it does provide a consistently fun hour of action. ‐ PopMatters

6/10 63% Person Of Interest: Season 1 (TV, 2011-2012) The show only feels truly energized when Emerson is on the screen. ‐ PopMatters

7/10 100% Archer: Season 3 (TV, 2012) If the first four episodes of Season Three are any indication, this could be Archer's best season yet. ‐ PopMatters

6/10 60% Alcatraz: Season 1 (TV, 2012) Alcatraz is a middling show. It needs to improve quickly.‐ PopMatters

6/10 74% Hawaii Five-0: Season 1 (TV, 2010-2011) It's a testament to the show's attention to detail that the suspect actually shoots out the window first, instead of just jumping through it. Other details are a mixed bag.‐ PopMatters

6/10 74% Ben and Kate: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) What the first episode doesn't do well is establish the supporting characters.‐ PopMatters

7/10 61% Copper: Season 1 (TV, 2012) Haunting images help to make Coppermore complex and compelling than the usual American police procedural.‐ PopMatters

6/10 100% Leverage: Season 4 (TV, 2011-2012) We can hope that Season Four will offer variety in both locations and plots.‐ PopMatters

4/10 56% Breaking In: Season 1 (TV, 2011) If Christian Slater has proved anything over the past few years, it's that he can't draw a television audience.‐ PopMatters

7/10 100% Sons of Anarchy: Season 4 (TV, 2011) So far, there's no indication that there's enough brewing here to measure up to Season Two, but the show seems to be solidly back on track after the problems of Season Three.‐ PopMatters

7/10 100% Bunheads: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) If these first two episodes are any indication, Bunheads is finding its strengths. Foster is hugely appealing and Bishop is great whenever she gets solid material.‐ PopMatters

6/10 84% American Horror Story: Asylum (TV, 2012-2013) It helps too that the new cast appears to be so tight.‐ PopMatters

3/10 17% Animal Practice: Season 1 (TV, 2012) Animal Practice seems to know exactly what it wants to do, it just isn't any good at it. ‐ PopMatters

4/10 21% Unsupervised: Season 1 (TV, 2012) Unsupervised appears content to amble along, reiterating what we've seen before‐ PopMatters

6/10 No Score Yet Primeval: Season 5 (TV, 2011) There's enough action-packed monster fighting to keep the show exciting, the character development is solid, and the cerebral overarching plot will keep sci-fi fans interested.‐ PopMatters

6/10 100% Cougar Town: Season 2 (TV, 2010-2011) Without a truly inspired idea, this episode was back to the start: pleasantly amusing.‐ PopMatters

6/10 77% Falling Skies: Season 3 (TV, 2013) It's when the show slows down for conversations that it runs into problems, getting bogged down in soapy drama and sci-fi tropes. ‐ PopMatters

7/10 81% Falling Skies: Season 1 (TV, 2011) Falling Skies' mix of compelling individuals helps to make its early use of formula less troublesome than it might have been.‐ PopMatters

6/10 76% Nikita: Season 1 (TV, 2010-2011) Amid such generic plotting, the show serves up an extended action sequence in a hotel that's nicely shot and choreographed. It appears that Nikita is going to be a down-and-dirty brawling kind of series.‐ PopMatters

9/10 90% Game of Thrones: Season 1 (TV, 2011) This is HBO's best dramatic series since The Wire and The Sopranos, hands down.‐ PopMatters

7/10 83% Detroit 1-8-7: Season 1 (TV, 2010-2011) Detroit 1-8-7 has a long way to go before it comes close to equaling Homicide, but it's off to a promising start.‐ PopMatters

6/10 58% Revolution: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) It doesn't feel very special.‐ PopMatters

6/10 100% The Chicago Code: Season 1 (TV, 2011) The Chicago Code appears to be aiming for a heady mix of action and political drama, and it mostly works‐ PopMatters
