Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C+ 35% Roadies: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It's a show about people who still haven't found what they're looking for that still hasn't found what it's looking for. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 27, 2016
A- 100% The Americans: Season 4 Episode 13 "The Americans always does good work with the stuff that appears microscopic on the historical scale, but massive on the personal level. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 9, 2016
A 100% The Americans: Season 4 Episode 12 ""A Roy Rogers In Franconia" is another breathless chapter in what's proven to be the best season of the best show on TV. No other ongoing series can match The Americans for its balance of long-term and short-term storytelling. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 2, 2016
A 94% The Americans: Season 4 Episode 11 "The Americans isn't the type of show to telegraph huge, tide-changing moments, but the titular scene of "Dinner For Seven" is an exception. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 26, 2016
B 100% The Americans: Season 4 Episode 10 ""Munchkins" provides The Americans with a breather, in which the main characters are steeped in consequence. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 19, 2016
B+ 100% The Americans: Season 4 Episode 9 "The morality of The Americans is rarely black-and-white, but the specter of mutually assured destruction has a way of rendering complicated issues into absolutes. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 12, 2016
C+ No Score Yet First Impressions with Dana Carvey: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "With so much star power projecting from the competitors, you'd think First Impressions would be better at managing its above-the-line talent. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 10, 2016
A 100% The Americans: Season 4 Episode 8 "God bless The Americans for daring to attempt such an endeavor, let alone pulling it off with such showmanship. " ‐ AV Club
Posted May 5, 2016
A 100% The Americans: Season 4 Episode 7 "It's a stunning translation of the show's two faces, with the spy stuff lighting off fireworks in the opening acts, their brilliant flashes then illuminating the quieter scenes that follow. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 28, 2016
100% Silicon Valley: Season 3 (TV, 2016) "The ensemble grows, but Judge and Berg are wise to preserve Richard's place at the center of Silicon Valley. This is still the story of a protagonist with a good idea, noble intentions, and ample vulnerabilities. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 20, 2016
B+ 100% The Americans: Season 4 Episode 5 ""Clark's Place" isn't The Americans recoiling from the attack. It's the preparation for the pounce, the show's muscles tensing in preparation for action. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 14, 2016
A 100% The Americans: Season 4 Episode 4 "As The Americans proves time and time again, you never hear the bullet with your name on it. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 7, 2016
B+ 100% The Americans: Season 4 Episode 1 "The Americans opens its fourth season with a reminder that even the most powerful surveillance operations can still overlook a deadly threat. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 31, 2016
B+ 100% The Americans: Season 4 Episode 2 "Two episodes in and season four is playing some monumental head games. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 31, 2016
B+ 100% The Americans: Season 4 Episode 3 ""Experimental Prototype City Of Tomorrow" is more than its last eight minutes. It's also The Americans episode that gives the most serious consideration to extracting the Jennings from Falls Church. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 31, 2016
B+ 100% Archer: Season 7 (TV, 2016) "At this point, Archer can put these people in any position it wants and still find satisfying results. (Phrasing!) " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 28, 2016
C+ 32% Crowded: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Some weak conceptual components aside, what it offers is the warm comfort of the familiar. Sort of like moving back home-for better and for worse. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 15, 2016
C- 35% Of Kings and Prophets: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "With its many moving parts never quite working in unison, Of Kings And Prophets plays the game of thrones and neither wins nor dies. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 8, 2016
C+ 67% The Real O'Neals: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "By ABC standards, as well as modern conventions, the O'Neals couldn't be more normal. It's just too bad that they're not as distinct as their show thinks they are. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 2, 2016
A- 87% Love: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Love communicates the honesty its creators strived for, if only for the believable way it draws Gus and Mickey together across time, space, and their own insecurities. Put in the time with Love, and that time will be rewarded. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 17, 2016
B+ 83% You, Me and the Apocalypse: Series 1 (TV, 2015) "Even when they're dropping punchlines, Lowe and Fischer never behave like characters in a comedy, and the production design mimics that of a big-screen apocalypse. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 28, 2016
C 73% Billions: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Even after half of a season, it's difficult to tell what a second, third, or fourth season of Billions would look like, beyond the latest volley between Southern District Javert and private-jet Valjean. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 19, 2016
B 92% Angie Tribeca: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Combined with a consistent tone, a healthy dose of ingenuity, and an unwavering commitment to silliness, this sort of spoof ultimately transcends its source material. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 15, 2016
B 100% New Girl: Season 5 (TV, 2016) "It's the sort of New Girl that didn't have me laughing every minute, but did have me smiling for most of its running length. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 6, 2016
B- 54% Superstore: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "The store may prove more interesting than the people who work there. Big-box retailers are ripe for a TV send-up, and Spitzer and company have clearly had a lot of fun building the world of Cloud 9. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 30, 2015
C 60% Jim Henson's Turkey Hollow "A modern-day fairy tale starring fantastical creatures who communicate in Mad magazine sound effects ("Burble," "Zorp," "Squonk," and "Thwring") ought to feel a little more unconventional than Turkey Hollow. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 20, 2015
A 88% W/ Bob and David: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Beyond reference points and sermons for the converted, With Bob And David is a hilarious triumph on its own merits. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 12, 2015
D 13% Truth Be Told: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "There's a lie at the core of Truth Be Told's purportedly radical honesty: Its real talk is all manufactured blarney. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 14, 2015
B 79% Red Oaks: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) "Red Oaks' summer-long arc has enough space to depict David and friends' personal highs, their crushing lows, and the small-town mundanities that Ferris Bueller didn't have to stop and look around for. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 9, 2015
A- 93% The Leftovers: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Amid all the shakeups, The Leftovers' standalone technique remains second to none. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 4, 2015
B 69% Grandfathered: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "With an unctuous protagonist on a path to redemption, Grandfathered's most redeeming quality is its supporting cast. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 29, 2015
93% The Grinder: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Fred Savage is the true comeback kid of The Grinder, The Wonder Years star-turned-go-to sitcom director making his return to series TV after a decade-plus behind the camera. He's an ideal foil for Lowe. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 29, 2015
78% The Daily Show With Trevor Noah: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "The Daily Show With Trevor Noah will undoubtedly tap into that reserve in time, but for now, there's nothing wrong with letting Noah lead with how much he enjoys being behind the wheel. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 29, 2015
B 84% Quantico: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The difference between Quantico and other new dramas is that Quantico totes its BS with a sense of wit and style. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 25, 2015
B- 64% The Muppets: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "It's still magical to watch these characters navigate the real world -- as dispiriting as it may be to see them reflect it. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 22, 2015
C 29% Minority Report: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Unlike the show's trio of siblings, the audience isn't psychic, so everyone's explaining what's on their minds at all times. It's an easy mistake that a lot of speculative fiction makes, erring too far in the direction of bringing everyone up to speed. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 21, 2015
B+ 62% Life in Pieces: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "The show has novelty on its side, but it also has a talented ensemble that's under (by a guesstimate) half of the time crunch of the average sitcom cast. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 21, 2015
91% The Late Show With Stephen Colbert: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Tonight, Stephen Colbert picked his instrument back up, and with it he made a joyful sound. A joyful, weird, distinctly Stephen Colbert-like sound. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 9, 2015
B+ 31% True Detective : Season 2 Episode 8 "Loss, redemption, retribution, atonement, just desserts: These ideas are the heart of the episode. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Aug 10, 2015
A- 84% True Detective : Season 2 Episode 7 ""Black Maps And Motel Rooms" sets up one explosive checkmate. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Aug 3, 2015
A- 92% Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "First Day Of Camp is more than expository reenactment. It expands the world of Wet Hot American Summer to depict more of the world outside Camp Firewood, from nearby Waterville to the swanky digs of "evil" Camp Tiger Claw. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 30, 2015
C 52% True Detective : Season 2 Episode 5 "It feels as if True Detective has reached the middle of season two only start all over again. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 20, 2015
B- 54% True Detective : Season 2 Episode 4 "Because True Detective still fancies itself the thinking person's cop show, there's some genuine thoughtfulness mixed in with the splattered cranial matter. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 13, 2015
B+ 71% True Detective : Season 2 Episode 3 ""Maybe Tomorrow" has a remarkable metabolism for information, which works to the advantage of a case that's due to close in five hours. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 6, 2015
B- 83% True Detective : Season 2 Episode 2 "There's just enough weirdness coursing through "Night Finds You" to pull the episode away from its non-stop misery parade. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 29, 2015
B- 74% True Detective : Season 2 Episode 1 ""The Western Book Of The Dead" excels at setting up a mystery but lacks for satisfying drama, if only because these characters aren't so interesting on their own. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 22, 2015
B- 64% True Detective : Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Just cops, crooks, crime, corruption, coercion, cloverleafs and other "c"s that aren't "Cohle." The sooner we accept this, the sooner we can get properly lost in season two's tangle of highways and high speed rail. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 22, 2015
B 53% The Brink: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "There's smart plotting at work, and keen observational skills when it comes to showing who's truly in power, but it takes a squishy stance on the issues at hand, a "nuclear warfare bad" perspective that makes for agreeable comedy but ineffectual satire. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 18, 2015
A 97% Game of Thrones: Season 5 Episode 10 "These episodes were as much of an endurance test as they were a television season, for better and for worse. Fortunately, "Mother's Mercy" features more of the former, even as it put the screws to the viewers until the very end. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 15, 2015
A- 97% Hannibal: Season 3 (TV, 2015) "Hannibal begins its third season in a fog, but eventually makes this much clear: We know how this story ends, but the journey to that destination can still be bloody fun. " ‐ AV Club
