T-Meter Title | Year
29% Dirt: Season 1 (TV, 2007-2008) To say that Dirt is messy would be an understatement: its very structure is in a shambles, and the focus is pulled disastrously from Lucy and onto another character far too frequently. - MTV EDIT

100% I, Claudius: Miniseries (TV, 1976) I, Claudius remains one of the best dramas ever to air on television, a deft masterpiece of story, character, and, perhaps most importantly, vivid atmosphere. - The Daily Beast EDIT

91% Sherlock: Season 3 (TV, 2010-2017) The Empty Hearse, with its heady revelations and the promise of future mayhem via a new nemesis for Sherlock and John, manages to create an aura of mystery and potential that is quite intoxicating. - BuzzFeed News EDIT

100% House of Cards Trilogy (UK): The Final Cut (TV, 1995) There's a sense of moral decay at play within House of Cards that is fascinating to watch, how our aims are often ruined by ambition, and how proximity to the sources of power leads, almost naturally, to corruption. - The Daily Beast EDIT

95% The Fall: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2016) The Fall is a top-flight mystery that taps into political tensions in Northern Ireland and the troubling undercurrent of violence against women. - The Daily Beast EDIT

83% Under the Dome: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2015) Under the Dome manages to be a domestic drama, a disaster film, and a horror-filled science-fiction tale rolled into one, with some romance, humor, and pathos thrown in for good measure. - The Daily Beast EDIT

100% The Amazing Race: Season 10 (TV, 2013-2015) I have to say that I've been really impressed by the locations that the contestants have travelled to this season on The Amazing Race... It almost (almost!) makes up for the lameness of The Amazing Race: Family Edition. - MTV EDIT

86% The Strain: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2017) Some of the most intense and disturbing scenes ever on television. - BuzzFeed News EDIT

26% Hemlock Grove: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2015) The strident shrillness of much of the writing allows this already plodding production to wander into the territory of the laughably bad. - The Daily Beast EDIT

90% Big Love: Season 5 (TV, 2006-2011) Olsen and Scheffer have wisely stripped away elements that distracted and detracted from the family at the show's emotional core. They have channeled their energies -- and the show's focus -- back onto the Henricksons themselves - The Daily Beast EDIT

67% Community: Season 4 (TV, 2009-2015) As for the two episodes themselves, they are good, if perhaps missing the same levels of confidence that Community exhibited during its run thus far. - The Daily Beast EDIT

81% Family Tree: Season 1 (TV, 2013) Half the fun in watching the charmingly twee Family Tree is to see how many branches Tom is willing to climb to get his answers and just how many nuts he discovers up there. - The Daily Beast EDIT
