T-Meter Title | Year
B+ 77% Saved by the Bell: Season 1 (TV, 2020) A cleverly constructed, highly tongue-in-cheek reinvention that pokes plenty of fun at its inspiration while finding genuine laughs of its own. - TV Line EDIT

No Score Yet (TV, ) India makes a compelling witness to the horrors of NXIVM, and her personal story gives Seduced a sturdy narrative arc. - TV Line EDIT

77% The Vow: Season 1 (TV, 2020) The pace at times is agonizingly slow, with lots of footage of Vicente scrolling through his email or Edmondson on the phone. But with all that overkill, it's also badly muddled, missing the big picture story of NXIVM by getting too far in the weeds. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 12, 2020
B- No Score Yet (TV, ) It has an admittedly odd premise and does fall into certain CBS sitcom pitfalls along the way, but it's redeemed by stars Thomas Middleditch and Annaleigh Ashford, who make a stellar comedic duo right away. - TV Line EDIT

C- 71% A Teacher: Miniseries (TV, 2020) A Teacher is just an uncomfortable, frustrating viewing experience, and not in the ways it's meant to be. - TV Line EDIT

B+ 75% The Undoing: Season 1 (TV, 2020) Kidman does most of the heavy lifting here, and not surprisingly, she's terrific. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2020
63% The Duchess: Season 1 (TV, 2020) It's a fierce and funny wine mom's manifesto with a refreshingly cynical take on parenthood. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2020
D 62% Ratched: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Ratched insists on conjuring up an origin story for her anyway: a campy, gruesome, punishingly dreary melodrama that feels like a rejected concept for an American Horror Story season... and should've remained on the reject pile. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 14, 2020
B+ 76% Woke: Season 1 (TV, 2020) It doesn't claim to have all the answers when it comes to healing the racial divide, but it's refreshing to see a show approach it with a sense of humor that illuminates without getting preachy. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 2, 2020
A- 76% Perry Mason: Season 1 (TV, 2020) HBO's reboot somehow feels vitally current, with richly drawn characters, gorgeous visuals, a genuinely compelling central mystery and another terrific lead performance from star Matthew Rhys. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 17, 2020
37% Too Hot to Handle: Season 1 (TV, 2020) Too Hot has a killer premise, to be sure, but the show managed to fumble it away with a number of ill-advised production choices. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2020
C 57% Hollywood: Season 1 (TV, 2020) This sprawling, ambitious look at the actors, producers and studio executives that created the film industry's Golden Age sets out to rewrite history, but it gets too bogged down in overwrought sentiment to reach its lofty ambitions. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 30, 2020
B 67% The Eddy: Season 1 (TV, 2020) The four episodes I've seen have some narrative kinks to work out, to be sure, but the filmmaking is truly stunning at times, and it manages to capture an energy and a beauty that more polished series can only dream of. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2020
C+ 81% Devs: Season 1 (TV, 2020) It has [Alex] Garland's signature chilly and cerebral tone, but the pacing is sluggish. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2020
C 78% Little Fires Everywhere: Season 1 (TV, 2020) Hulu's adaptation is a resounding disappointment, considering the star power behind it - a flat, formulaic melodrama that hits all the wrong notes. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 4, 2020
B 80% Hillary: Season 1 (TV, 2020) Clinton makes for an engaging interview subject - thoughtful, good-humored, open to admitting past mistakes - and Hillary's deep dive into her rise to fame and power is certainly compelling. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 26, 2020
No Score Yet (TV Episode) Whoa... Homeland definitely knows how to set up a finale, doesn't it? - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2020
B+ 86% High Fidelity: Season 1 (TV, 2020) Early on, it hews a little too closely to the source material, but when it ventures out on its own, it quickly finds an easygoing groove, thanks to an altogether charming lead performance from Zoë Kravitz. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2020
C+ 79% Briarpatch: Season 1 (TV, 2020) The central mystery isn't as interesting as the atmosphere surrounding it. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2020

100% Homeland: Season 7 - All In (TV Episode) Carrie was forced to pull off a tricky balancing act. (And no, that's not a metaphor). - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2020
90% Homeland: Season 7 - Lies, Amplifiers, F**king Twitter (TV Episode) Homeland is currently hitting on all cylinders in Season 7... and quietly putting together its best season in years. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 1, 2018
100% Homeland: Season 7 - Species Jump (TV Episode) An Allison Carr reference! Season 5's CIA mole played by Miranda Otto came up during Saul's meeting with Sandy, who referred to Allison a "textbook honey trap." Hey, that pretty much describes Carrie this week, right? - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2020
78% Homeland: Season 7 - Andante (TV Episode) It feels a little off to add a romantic angle to this relationship so late in the game, doesn't it? - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2020
80% Homeland: Season 7 - Active Measures (TV Episode) Yeah, my cynical side says there's no way this would really go down like this... but it was nice to see, just the same. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2020
B 86% Star Trek: Picard: Season 1 (TV, 2020) It takes a while to fully gel, and some fans might start to get impatient, but I'm happy to report that Picard does eventually set up an intriguing mission that's worthy of its lead character. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 23, 2020
C 76% Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist: Season 1 (TV, 2020) It looks like all of the actors are having a blast filming Zoey's big musical numbers... but that fun never fully translates to us at home. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2019
C- 91% Katy Keene: Season 1 (TV, 2020) As a Riverdale viewer, I don't mind getting a break from the Black Hood, et al... but after seeing how utterly lacking in conflict Katy's first three episodes are, I almost wanted the Black Hood back. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2020
C+ 42% Mad About You: Season 1 (TV, 2019) None of this is great art, by any stretch... but I still found myself feeling a certain affection for it. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 13, 2019
B 86% Dead to Me: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Dead to Me tries to be a whole lot of different things at once - but most of them succeed, actually, thanks to the strong work from [Christina] Applegate and [Linda] Cardellini. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2019
97% Pose: Season 2 (TV, 2018-2019) Pose capped off a superb sophomore season with a bit of role reversal - and a triumphant return to the ballroom. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2019
B+ 82% The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 3 (TV, 2017-2019) Maisel is a feast for the eyes as always in Season 3, with impeccably tailored vintage fashions and lavish locales to marvel at. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2019
C+ 81% Fosse/Verdon: Miniseries (TV, 2019) Despite stellar performances from its two lead actors, it never really breaks out of that established biopic framework enough to tell a fresh and compelling story. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 26, 2019
No Score Yet (TV Episode) No Cheryl at all this week?! I know things were busy, but we simply can't go a week without checking in with Miss Blossom, can we? - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2019
B+ 75% Dickinson: Season 1 (TV, 2019) With an edgy sensibility and a modern-day score of jangly indie rock and thumping hip-hop, Dickinson is a sharp parody of stuffy period dramas, with a healthy dose of overheated teen soap dramatics as well. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2019
D 43% See: Season 1 (TV, 2019) See relies on graphically gory battle scenes to carry a largely incoherent story, but I found myself giggling far more often than its creators intended. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2019
C- 61% The Morning Show: Season 1 (TV, 2019) The Morning Show is overly talky, tonally confused, badly miscast in places - and, given the talent involved, a major disappointment. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2019
B- 73% For All Mankind: Season 1 (TV, 2019) The space-race angle has real bite, and the series gleams with rich period detail. But the final product is a bit dramatically inert: It tries to juggle too many characters at once, and doesn't make any of them as compelling as its core concept. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2019
100% Riverdale: Season 4 - Chapter Sixty: Dog Day Afternoon (TV Episode) Were you worried that Riverdale was getting too safe and boring this season? Well, you won't be after this week's completely cuckoo episode. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2019
B 81% Living With Yourself: Season 1 (TV, 2019) I'm not sure all of this would work nearly as well without Rudd at its center, honestly, but his innate charm helps hold those thin narrative strands together. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2019
B 91% Evil: Season 1 (TV, 2019) The smart, penetrating writing from The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King takes an unflinching look at the nature of evil and deftly probes the tension between faith and science. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2019
B+ 58% The Politician: Season 1 (TV, 2019) The Politician provides plenty of laughs and on-target jabs at our current political moment - but it's the battered yet still-beating heart found in Platt's performance that ultimately has us pulling the lever for this one. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2019
100% A Black Lady Sketch Show: Season 1 (TV, 2019) This isn't just a win for representation: A Black Lady Sketch Show is damn hilarious, too, taking insightful swipes at the ridiculousness of modern life, wowing us with big-budget genre parodies and serving up a host of delightful celebrity cameos to boot - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 10, 2019
42% Four Weddings and a Funeral: Season 1 (TV, 2019) There's nothing incredibly groundbreaking and innovative about any of this... but there doesn't really need to be. It's a cute, lighthearted throwback that goes down easy in an era of tough-to-watch dramas. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2019
No Score Yet Muppets Tonight: Season 1 (TV, 0-1998) Looking back through old YouTube clips, Muppets Tonight is actually pretty enjoyable. Sure, a lot of its references are dated, but the timeless humor and heart shine through. - Yahoo.com EDIT

100% Legion: Season 3 - Chapter 20 (TV Episode) FX's Legion got trippier than ever in its third and final season premiere, with David leading a far-out cult of hippies. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2019
B+ 82% Euphoria: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Euphoria is admittedly better at establishing a distinctive mood and style than at telling a story, at least early on... But Euphoria's exhilarating style and achingly incisive observations more than make up for any storytelling flaws it might have. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 14, 2019
100% Claws: Season 3 (TV, 2017-2019) We say this a lot while watching Claws, but... WTF? - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 10, 2019
85% Big Little Lies: Season 2 (TV, 2017-2019) Through it all, the signature Big Little Lies approach is in full effect: sharply observed, endlessly patient, emotionally true. - TV Line EDIT

A- 98% Tuca & Bertie: Season 1 (TV, 2019) [It's] a vibrantly colorful, delightfully surreal animated comedy that mashes up the best bits of those two shows with a playful, psychedelic edge. - TV Line EDIT
