Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
A- 95% Halt and Catch Fire: Season 3 (TV, 2016) "The four main characters are all visionaries of their own type, but the show continues, compellingly, to chart just how much hard work -- and failure -- goes into transforming vision into reality. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Aug 24, 2016
B+ 89% Last Chance U: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Their pasts and their possible futures balanced so precariously as to make their daily struggles more than usually fraught and compelling. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Aug 16, 2016
B+ 85% American Horror Story: Coven Episode 11 "A series with more strong female leads than any other show on TV right now is certainly welcome, even though the characters gain their agency only by either 1.) being born with special powers or 2.) selling their souls to the devil. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 6, 2016
B 63% BrainDead: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Throughout, there are plenty of promising touches to warrant optimism. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 14, 2016
B+ 38% Wayward Pines: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "Continuing the first season's willingness to sacrifice big names for the sake of keeping viewers off balance, season two introduces and dismisses characters with ruthless glee. Surprising exits and reappearances abound. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 23, 2016
B 91% Time Traveling Bong: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "While the miniseries' ramshackle nature is one of its charms, it's hardly tossed off, instead functioning as an amiably silly, slyly pointed showcase for the ever-game and funny Glazer and Downs. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 20, 2016
D No Score Yet House of Darkness (2016) "House Of Darkness plays like a horror movie told secondhand by people who don't like or understand horror movies. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 15, 2016
D 0% Hunters: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Hunters is a dour sci-fi procedural whose every story beat is joylessly copied from more interesting shows, and whose pretensions toward political allegory are too simplistic to be truly offensive. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 11, 2016
B+ 75% Marvel's Daredevil: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "The series maintains its appropriately low-rent look, making Matt Murdock's internal struggles in the first half of this second season that much more human. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 16, 2016
C+ 42% Flaked: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Flaked fails to make the case that Chip's self-pitying assholery is unique enough to carry an entire series. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 9, 2016
B+ 100% Vikings: Season 4 (TV, 2016) "Travis Fimmel's performance as Ragnar Lothbrok is Vikings. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 22, 2016
B 78% Outsiders: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "In what's proving to be a trend for 2016 TV premieres, Outsiders is better than its marketing. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 26, 2016
C- 64% Mad Dogs: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Muddles together elements of thriller, black comedy, midlife crisis drama, and a pinch of horror and waters the resulting concoction down with enough incessant bickering and aimless, contrived wandering to render the concoction monotonously unpalatable. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 22, 2016
C+ No Score Yet Workaholics: Season 6 (TV, 2016) "We have to watch a sweating, shouting, sleazy Dane Cook for much of the episode, a prospect Workaholics seems to think is hilarious on its surface. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 15, 2016
B+ 88% Idiotsitter: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Idiotsitter is raucous and loose, but also a very promising vehicle for Bell and Newhouse. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 13, 2016
A- No Score Yet It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 11 (TV, 2016) "This 11th season is like watching the Harlem Globetrotters. They're doing difficult, outrageous things that -- thanks to talent, practice, and the sense that this is where they truly belong -- look absurdly easy. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 7, 2016
B 82% F Is for Family: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Burr's comedy, while "un-PC," is deceptively nuanced in its worldview -- or as nuanced as his rant-based standup can be. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 20, 2015
B+ 92% The Last Kingdom: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "BBC America's sprawling, arresting eight-part historical miniseries The Last Kingdom proves that there's room enough on television for more than one Viking invasion. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 9, 2015
C+ No Score Yet Saturday Night Live: Season 41 (TV, 2015-2016) "These aren't great sketches, but Jones is great in them. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 5, 2015
C- No Score Yet The Simpsons: Season 27 (TV, 2015-2016) ""Every Man's Dream" is just a series of bad jokes at the expense of the show's characters, all in service of a cheap grab for momentary notoriety. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 28, 2015
B 62% Life in Pieces: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "While hardly as ambitious an undertaking, there's a hint of Louie in there, where the main story is added to in isolated, well-realized touches rather than conforming to one standard narrative. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 22, 2015
C- 30% Hand of God: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) "Ron Perlman is a uniquely vivid actor, capable of much more than the growling, barreling, dour agent of plot he's given to play here. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 8, 2015
D+ 20% Mr. Robinson: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Craig Robinson is long overdue for a dedicated star vehicle. Unfortunately, Mr. Robinson wastes him almost completely. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Aug 4, 2015
B- No Score Yet Married: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Tonally, when it works, Married pulls off the neat trick of blending absurdity and ennui into something like profundity, all in a 21-minute episode of television. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 17, 2015
D+ 33% Impastor: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Boasting an abysmal title and a reliance on unnecessary narration and cozy, affordable classic rock songs, the show attempts a doomed (and bland) marriage of basic cable innocuousness and off-color humor. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 16, 2015
B 40% Why? With Hannibal Buress: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Why? With Hannibal Buress is funny... It's also less impactful than it should be. In performance, Buress' looseness is prelude to a sharpness, a comic formula the show hasn't found yet. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 9, 2015
B+ 72% The Spoils Before Dying: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "Both the plot and performances of The Spoils Before Dying are tighter, and this focus keeps the narrative taut, even as the miniseries and actors still find time to fiddle around with a bit if it seems rewarding. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 8, 2015
B- 98% Mr. Robot: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The look of the show -- pale faces bathed in flickering computer screens, overcast days and dingy electric nights -- make for a suitably claustrophobic and worn New York City. (Mac Quayle's John Carpenter-esque throwback music assists.) " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 24, 2015
B 94% Halt and Catch Fire: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "If the end of last season gained momentum by being an "underdog against the clock" tale, then the beginning of this one hits the ground running as a promising "get the band back together" story. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 1, 2015
B- 100% Vikings: Season 3 (TV, 2015) "This series has a lot going for it -- it's all up to Hirst now to find the right balance once again. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 20, 2015
C- No Score Yet Workaholics: Season 5 (TV, 2015) "In a comedy TV landscape where shows like It's Always Sunny and Broad City are shooting higher from the same road, Workaholics is in danger of falling off the map. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 15, 2015
B 100% It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 10 (TV, 2015) "The five actors are by now so attuned to both their characters and the show's underlying philosophy that this tightrope balancing act has come to look easy. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 15, 2015
B- 83% Saturday Night Live: Season 40 (TV, 2014-2015) "Striding into the show as the superstar that he is, Pratt's desire to be one of the gang was endearing, if not especially memorable. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 29, 2014
C 67% The Simpsons: Season 26 (TV, 2014-2015) "The Simpsons isn't what it used to be, and has lost some of its heart over its quarter-century. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 29, 2014
B- 83% The Simpsons: Season 25 (TV, 2013-2014) "I'm looking forward to it with guarded optimism and an open mind. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 30, 2013
B+ 100% It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 9 (TV, 2013) "Sustaining such a satirical balancing act for eight years should earn creators Rob McElhenney and Glenn Howerton (and their co-stars) a place in the comedy pantheon. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 6, 2013
C- 13% The Bible: Season 1 (TV, 2013) "The Bible offers little more than a rote Bible course-plodding, cheap, obvious, and largely bereft of the showmanship any religious epic worth its pillar of salt should understand. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 3, 2013
C- 32% The Neighbors: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) "While you can pick out a sly chuckle or two from The Neighbors, most of the time its lower-key blandness leaves too much time to pick apart what's wrong with it. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 26, 2012
F 0% Brickleberry: Season 1 (TV, 2012) "The roster here is a monument to wasted talent and dreadful writing. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 25, 2012
B+ 100% Wallander: Series 3 (TV, 2012) "It's a delicate balancing act that Branagh pulls off. " ‐ AV Club
