86% High Fidelity: Season 1 (TV, 2020) The series is about finding the balance between communicating through what you love and using it as a replacement for communication. That's a really good series. It's just that that series shouldn't have tried to be High Fidelity. - Pajiba EDIT

100% Brockmire: Season 4 (TV, 2017) Brockmire the show is great specifically because Brockmire the character tries and fails repeatedly to do right. - Pajiba EDIT

56% Dollface: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Which isn't to say that the show is bad, it's just not, well, good. It's average. It's surpassingly average. - Pajiba EDIT

33% Golden Globes: 73rd Golden Globe Awards (TV, 1998) Yeah, Gervais wasn't good. He wasn't terrible, he just didn't seem to hit his sweet spot. - Pajiba EDIT

98% Unbelievable: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Unbelievable might be the first cop show to focus not on how "impartial objectivity" is the only way to handle an investigation, but how much that objectivity can actually f*ck it. - Pajiba EDIT

89% Veronica Mars: Season 4 (TV, 2019) I did, in fact, like the fourth season of Veronica Mars, and that I'm a big, big fan of Veronica Mars. Having said that, yes, Veronica Mars herself was the weakest part of the most recent revival. - Pajiba EDIT

100% Jane the Virgin: Season 5 (TV, 2014-2019) Jane The Virgin aired its series finale last night, and I want everyone here to know that it made me cry real, genuine tears of real emotions because I was touched by the things they were saying and doing. - Pajiba EDIT

37% Shut Eye: Season 1 (TV, 2016-2017) Being a boring show is Shut Eye's biggest sin, but that only tells part of the story. The show was basically bursting with plot points, and none of them seemed to land. - Pajiba EDIT

83% Alpha House: Season 2 (TV, 2013-2014) I'm not sure how many actors have a perfect face for "contempt combined with a desperate need for approval" in their wheelhouse, but they probably learned it from Goodman. - Pajiba EDIT

92% Casual: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2018) It's smart and funny and nuanced. But it also feels like it's been done before, and, without some sort of novelty, the stellar performances will be wasted on an "also ran" show. - Pajiba EDIT

100% Barry: Season 2 (TV, 2018-2019) Barry was the best episode TV last night... And in a season of really incredible work, it proved that not only is Barry one of the best shows on TV right now, it's also one of the best horror shows ever. - Pajiba EDIT

91% American Gods: Season 2 - Treasure Of The Sun (TV Episode) I guess the show isn't technically canceled, but it's canceled in my heart... Do the right thing, New Bryan Fuller. Do the right thing. - Pajiba EDIT

48% Sherlock: Season 4 - The Final Problem (TV Episode) This was bad. It was really bad. - Pajiba EDIT

81% Sherlock: Season 4 - The Lying Detective (TV Episode) My issue with last night's episode is the same I had in last week's: why are you showing me this, guys? - Pajiba EDIT

62% Sherlock: The Abominable Bride (2015 Christmas Special) (TV, 2010-2017) We watched all our favorite characters march around in stuffy suits/dresses to solve an unremarkable crime that doesn't have anything to do with the current story. - Pajiba EDIT

47% Sherlock: Season 4 - The Six Thatchers (TV Episode) It's difficult to balance a show that has equal parts death, crime and heartbreak, and endearing mad cap-ism while also solving a mystery worthy of Mr. Holmes. The Six Thatchers, unfortunately, had the formula all backwards. - Pajiba EDIT

100% You're the Worst: Season 5 (TV, 2014-2019) All I asked for was that You're the Worst not ruin itself in its last season. What I got was a finale that quickly rocketed to my all-time favorite show ending ever (sorry, Six Feet Under). - Pajiba EDIT

93% Shrill: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Shrill works best when it's pushing back on that bulls--t, but not in ways you might expect. Annie does experience a metamorphosis, built largely around the radical acceptance of her body as is. - Pajiba EDIT

100% Grace and Frankie: Season 5 (TV, 2015) The real reason to watch Grace and Frankie. Come for the lighthearted comedy, stay for the ungodly amounts of hot. You deserve it. - Pajiba EDIT

61% The Newsroom: Season 3 (TV, 2012-2014) Stripped of the forced romances, the internet slamming, and the "I am Spartacus" levels of everyone saying they are Don Quixote, it's actually a really good show. A good show in desperate need of an editor. - Pajiba EDIT
