Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
81% Trust: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Thank God for Donald Sutherland... The depiction of one of the world's most famous kidnapping stories has descended into a barrage of melodrama held back only by the octogenarian star's expert juggling of pain and pleasure. ‐ London Evening Standard

80% The Bisexual: Season 1 (TV, 2018) As Leila, Desiree Akhavan, is dry, subtle and hugely funny, her light New York accent barely rising above a monotone and yet, somehow, expressing eloquent emotion. ‐ London Evening Standard

No Score Yet The Apprentice (UK): Season 14 (TV, 2018) Perhaps we can blame ennui for the programme's decline, as it has failed to truly evolve since its early days. But, predominantly, it's the change of the real world of work that makes its issues so prominent. ‐ London Evening Standard

No Score Yet Alex: Series 1 (TV, 2018) Mrsic is a strong and interesting lead, full of suppressed rage and with a gruff delivery... Rakel Warmlander is fascinating to watch, subtle and enigmatic... It is these performances which give vital urgency to proceedings.‐ London Evening Standard

33% Bad Move: Series 2 (TV, 2018) Most of these short scenes of struggle culminate in a vaguely negative putdown from Dee, a shrug or a sigh, and a cut. It's cynical comedy by numbers - and Dee is phoning it in. ‐ London Evening Standard

1/5 11% Insatiable: Season 1 (TV, 2018) It's nowhere near as smart as it would need to be to make you forget the problematic set-up: the fat humour is lazy, the depiction of Bob is vaguely homophobic and there are actual fart jokes.‐ London Evening Standard

90% Hang Ups: Series 1 (TV, 2018) It is hugely likeable and perfectly decent - but the prospect of making the next appointment isn't exactly tantalising.‐ London Evening Standard

50% The Real Marigold Hotel: Season 3 (TV, 2018) The Real Marigold Hotel is solid tea-time television and is a sweet accompaniment to an evening on the sofa. Its cast are relatable, curious and game for new experiences. ‐ London Evening Standard

25% The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco: Series 1 (TV, 2018) The real question is why they bothered... The dialogue verges on the clumsy, the historical references seem shoe-horned and the departed actors who made up the original cast are very much missed.‐ London Evening Standard

63% Good Girls: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Good Girls is smart, funny and impossibly watchable thanks to the excellent cast of three actors at their best.‐ London Evening Standard

No Score Yet Nadiya's Family Favourites: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Nadiya's Family Favourites is a smart and organic choice to best show her skill: nothing is too complex...‐ London Evening Standard

93% Sharp Objects: Miniseries (TV, 2018) Amy Adams will soon be in need of an extra shelf in her trophy cabinet. She paints a complex portrait of a woman on the edge, in a masterful display of turmoil.‐ London Evening Standard

91% This Is Us: Season 2 (TV, 2017-2018) The strong performances across the board, and the sense of quiet intrigue provided by a tragedy looming in the distance, renders it a family affair worth sticking with.‐ London Evening Standard

100% Stath Lets Flats: Series 1 (TV, 2018) There are moments of classic, unmistakably British, humour. Demetriou is wholly convincing as Stath, paddling furiously under the surface as everything around him goes wrong. ‐ London Evening Standard

100% Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing: Season 1 (TV, 2018) There are no roll-in-the-aisles sketches, no quickfire catchphrases and definitely no Dove From Above. But there is a charming and surprisingly riotous journey...‐ London Evening Standard

82% Dietland: Season 1 (TV, 2018) It is a riveting and promising start to what may become a new addition to great American black comedies. ‐ London Evening Standard

100% Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 4 (TV, 2018) The jokes are still zingy, the tone still irreverent, and the three key characters are still doing what they do best. ‐ London Evening Standard

100% HUMANS: Season 3 (TV, 2018) Provides a smart and stylish exploration of the joys and perils of putting your very existence into the hands of artificial intelligence... If episode one delivers on its promise, then the journey into the unknown will be a profoundly interesting one.‐ London Evening Standard
