Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
9/10 95% Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 3 (TV, 2017-2018) Perhaps most importantly, it's bruising without feeling like it's beating any of the shows characters up, proving that television can be bracing and prickly at the same time as being compassionate.‐ PopMatters

8/10 94% The Sinner: Miniseries (TV, 2017) It isn't usually a compliment to describe a performance as opaque, but [Jessica] Biel is revelatory here; she's excellent at suggesting a woman who sees herself as purely a projection of those around her.‐ PopMatters

7/10 80% 13 Reasons Why: Season 1 (TV, 2017) 13 Reasons Why is problematic, troubling, and imprudent, but that doesn't mean that it isn't an important conversation that has to be had.‐ PopMatters

9/10 92% Big Little Lies: Season 1 (TV, 2017) By shunning the lie of a perfect womanhood, Big Little Lies suggest that perfection can be replaced by something better: wholeness.‐ PopMatters

8/10 91% Feud: Bette and Joan (TV, 2017) There were moments of cartoonish-ness, but it's to Lange's immense credit that she found a way of making that cartoonish-ness a virtue, because it draws Joan's pain in such sharp, stunning contrast.‐ PopMatters

8/10 75% Santa Clarita Diet: Season 1 (TV, 2017) It's a whip-smart subversion of some familiar themes with two solid central performances that manages to be funny, moving, and shocking.‐ PopMatters

5/10 24% Friends From College: Season 1 (TV, 2017) It's as if the sitcom is nothing more than a string of skits lumped together, hoping some cohesion, somehow, will happen.‐ PopMatters

8/10 90% This Is Us: Season 1 (TV, 2016-2017) Usually when a show tries to appeal to everybody it ends up pleasing nobody, but This Is Us is a genuine all-rounder, a real delight.‐ PopMatters

8/10 96% Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 3 (TV, 2017) It's a very good, thoughtful season of television, buoyed by a fantastic performance from Kemper, some truly hilarious punchlines, and a keen, startling interest in the emotional lives of its characters.‐ PopMatters

9/10 No Score Yet Playing House: Season 3 (TV, 2017) The world of Playing House too has changed, and it's very much for the better. It's exceptionally kind-hearted and humane; a near-perfect model of comedy done right.‐ PopMatters

7/10 63% Divorce: Season 1 (TV, 2016) So far, it's challenging, exhausting, well-acted, complex, annoying, sad and intriguing.‐ PopMatters
