T-Meter Title | Year
4.5/5 79% Helix: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) What distinguishes classics from mediocrity isn't the content, but the presentation, and Helix's first episode presented its material in ways which let its viewers know that it's aiming high. - What Culture EDIT

5/5 96% Justified: Season 3 (TV, 2010-2015) One of the many reasons why Justified is so good is the fact that no matter how convoluted the relations among the series' characters appear in retrospect, they never feel as such (at least to excess) while watching. - What Culture EDIT

2.5/5 33% Dexter: Season 8 (TV, 2006-2013) Judging from this episode alone it appears that although I'm a fan of the show and want to avoid underestimating its ability to surprise, Dexter's final installment is off to a lackluster start. - What Culture EDIT

4.5/5 79% Dexter: Season 7 (TV, 2006-2013) I feel like the series is ready to stop placating to the lowest common denominator and start showing us exactly how bad things can get for a killer with a conscience. - What Culture EDIT

3.5/5 79% The Office: Season 9 (TV, 2005-2013) The Office should be commended for being based on a foreign series and becoming so distinctly its own entity, even despite its later shortcomings. - What Culture EDIT

4/5 96% Parks and Recreation: Season 5 (TV, 2009) Hopefully we won't have to wait too long for everyone to be back in Pawnee together but if the episodes leading up to that point are as good as "Ms. Knope Goes to Washington", I don't mind at all. - What Culture EDIT

4.5/5 91% The Bridge (FX): Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) This does not look like a show which sets out to reinvent the wheel, just produce a very efficient and overall solid wheel. - What Culture EDIT

4/5 83% Under the Dome: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2015) [Jim and Duke's] exchange wasn't exactly subtle[,but] it's indicative of the episode on the whole in that it carries a confident assurance of what the show wants to do and how it will do it - with an effective whimper instead of a flashy bang. - What Culture EDIT
