T-Meter Title | Year
79% Sons of Anarchy: Season 6 (TV, 2008-2014) Season 6 traveled across the map both literally and figuratively, but still proved every bit as affecting by its final frame. For that, at least some credit is due. - ScreenCrush EDIT

98% Hannibal: Season 2 (TV, 2013-2015) Picks up with the same moody dread as before, with haunting visual flair and wonderful characterizations between Jack, Will and Hannibal himself. - ScreenCrush EDIT

82% Dexter: Season 7 (TV, 2006-2013) The renaissance of a stagnant series. - ScreenCrush EDIT

94% Arrow: Season 3 - Public Enemy (TV Episode) Producers have made no secret of the fact that... "Public Enemy" would completely change the DC drama as we know it, and by Grodd, they weren't kidding. What more insanity can Arrow Season 3 offer after the central shock? - ScreenCrush EDIT

77% Arrow: Season 4 - Genesis (TV Episode) There's every chance that the renewed focus can drive Season 4 toward an effective end, but the corners "Genesis" cut to get us there felt ludicrous, if not outright repetitive. - ScreenCrush EDIT

82% Arrow: Season 2 - The Man Under the Hood (TV Episode) "The Man Under the Hood" still manages to incorporate some strong (if relatively brief) fight sequences, though much of the episode's function serves to clarify a few loose ends, and sprinkle about revelations to inform the ultimate endgame. - ScreenCrush EDIT

80% Arrow: Season 2 - Time of Death (TV Episode) Things are getting crowded, for certain, though "Time of Death" is a good indication 'Arrow' remains up to the task. - ScreenCrush EDIT

90% Arrow: Season 2 - Heir to the Demon (TV Episode) Wrinkles and all, what "Heir to the Demon" does best lies in clearing out a few stale threats to supplant them with newer possibilities. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 6, 2018
80% Arrow: Season 2 - Tremors (TV Episode) An uneven installment, with plenty of exciting moments and teases for the future, but you'll forgive us to suggest that "Tremors" felt more than a little shaky. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 6, 2018
100% Arrow: Season 2 - Three Ghosts (TV Episode) We're content to marvel over how deftly "Three Ghosts" manages to accomplish its Dickensian feats of exploring past, present and future, without skimping on the shiny explosions. - ScreenCrush EDIT

60% Arrow: Season 2 - Blast Radius (TV Episode) 'Arrow' has amassed much more confidence and momentum in its second season than the year before it, that "Blast Radius" has enough going on to coast on the strength of its characters alone. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 6, 2018
82% Arrow: Season 2 - State v. Queen (TV Episode) All in all, an exceptionally uneven hour that was mostly righted by its final act...with plenty of stirred and shocking developments for the future. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 6, 2018
85% Arrow: Season 2 - The Scientist (TV Episode) "The Scientist" largely succeeds in launching 'Arrow' to a higher form of superhero storytelling, though not without a bit of seeming clumsiness. - ScreenCrush EDIT

100% Arrow: Season 3 - This Is Your Sword (TV Episode) Well, what now? - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
72% Arrow: Season 3 - My Name Is Oliver Queen (TV Episode) All season long, Arrow has steadily dismantled its core characters and story conventions to allow Oliver to ascend to the throne of Ra's al Ghul, and tonight's Season 3 finale "My Name is Oliver Queen" took things way, way further. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
100% Arrow: Season 3 - The Fallen (TV Episode) Arrow fans were in for a big treat with tonight's "The Fallen," as DC dropped some major mythology, while Oliver and Felicity just plain dropped it. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
88% Arrow: Season 3 - Ah Sah-Him (TV Episode) Arrow Season 3 has been a bit slow to build its main engine, but with only two episodes remaining, "Al Sah-Him" put the pedal to several metals. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
94% Arrow: Season 3 - Broken Arrow (TV Episode) Arrow fans have been anticipating that Season 3 would drop plenty of bodies before its finale, but good grief, did tonight's "Broken Arrow" spill a good deal of blood for a CW drama. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
100% Arrow: Season 3 - Nanda Parbat (TV Episode) Admittedly, tonight's hour brought an intriguing revelation on the nature of Ra's purported immortality, though given Arrow's inconsistent relationship with supernatural (see: The Flash), said "twist" raised more questions than it answered. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
100% Arrow: Season 2 - City of Blood (TV Episode) Coming down from an episode like last week's "Seeing Red," there was no way "City of Blood" wouldn't take at least a bit of a breather, or wind up positioning pieces for the final two installments more so than hold its own weight as an episode. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
90% Arrow: Season 2 - Streets of Fire (TV Episode) A few stumbles here and there in the emotional beats, but by this point "Streets of Fire" continues to cement 'Arrow' season 2 as all but untouchable. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
100% Arrow: Season 2 - Deathstroke (TV Episode) "Deathstroke" no doubt offered a bit of early crescendo for a season that still has five more episodes to go, but when it's this effective, we're not going to complain in the slightest. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
89% Arrow: Season 2 - Suicide Squad (TV Episode) Overall, the action itself proved a bit ineffective...though the "Suicide Squad"s intrinsic patchwork more than covered for a few shaky bits. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
70% Arrow: Season 2 - Birds of Prey (TV Episode) All in all "Birds of Prey" put an exceptional spotlight on Sara both past and present...and ably overcomes obstacles of the Huntress' tricky deployment, and an overall separation from the main arc. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
100% Arrow: Season 2 - The Promise (TV Episode) "The Promise" at least lives up to its namesake of ensuring the latter half of 'Arrow''s second season will prove just as explosive and incredible as the events that brought (and continue to bring) us there. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
85% Arrow: Season 2 - Crucible (TV Episode) "Crucible" doesn't necessarily aim to top that peak [of last week's "Broken Dolls"], though it still manages to end up with a fairly effective story in its own right. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
91% Arrow: Season 2 - League of Assassins (TV Episode) Precious few complaints to be found tonight...leaving 'Arrow' and the "League of Assassins" on continually strong footing. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
100% Arrow: Season 2 - Keep Your Enemies Closer (TV Episode) It's rather impressive that 'Arrow' can deviate from its initial plotlines involving the League of Assassins and Sebastian Blood, keeping Oliver and Diggle's relationship in step with an episode so far removed from Starling City. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
100% Arrow: Season 2 - City of Heroes (TV Episode) "City of Heroes" gave us plenty of strong action sequences with the hood copycats...and enough tantalizing tidbits of the season to come, moving at a brisk enough pace to avoid overstaying its welcome. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2018
92% Arrow: Season 2 - Identity (TV Episode) All in all, we dug the duality of tonight's "Identity"...though the episode itself ironically could have done with a stronger sense of its own identity. - ScreenCrush EDIT

88% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 (TV, 2016) As far as premieres go, this was about as much fun as Legends of Tomorrow could find space to cram in. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 19, 2018
78% The Flash: Season 2 - The Race of His Life (TV Episode) There's much more to consider going into Season 3 than "The Race of His Life" necessarily wrought during the hour itself, but the overall construction felt admirably solid, to effectively resolve so uneven a big bad as Zoom. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
75% The Flash: Season 2 - Versus Zoom (TV Episode) In any case, the team pieces the story together with a little help from Cisco's blossoming Vibe powers, even managing to open the breach, and inspire Barry with a plan to finally capture his Season 2 nemesis. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
94% The Flash: Season 2 - King Shark (TV Episode) I almost wish King Shark hadn't ended with such a scene-stealing reveal, given the surprisingly robust hour that could just have easily slacked off after such a driven two-part "Earth-2" arc. - ScreenRant EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
85% The Flash: Season 2 - Escape From Earth-2 (TV Episode) In any case, the emphasis on Zoom brought a nice horror bent to some of the pursuits, definitely playing to one of the villain's few strengths at this point, while the woodland confrontation with Killer Frost also brought a nice change of scenery. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
93% The Flash: Season 2 - Welcome to Earth-2 (TV Episode) The only times "Welcome to Earth-2" seemed to stumble were in falling for the exact trap Jay warned Barry to avoid, losing sight of the mission at hand by getting lost in the allure of another world. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
86% Arrow: Season 3 - Suicidal Tendencies (TV Episode) At the very least, tonight's myriad stories proved pretty effective on an individual basis, just a bit scattershot together. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
94% Arrow: Season 3 - The Brave and the Bold (TV Episode) Honestly, there was a tremendous amount to enjoy here, and I could go on for pages, but it was also an especially nice touch to include all of 'Arrow''s supporting cast wherever possible. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
100% Arrow: Season 3 - The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak (TV Episode) The nice thing about getting to explore Felicity's origins beyond what we've heard in exposition, was to see that the character always had something of a heroically badass streak. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
86% Arrow: Season 3 - The Calm (TV Episode) The third season of Arrow has proven somewhat difficult to navigate, lacking the immediate urgency of its predecessors. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
100% Arrow: Season 2 - Unthinkable (TV Episode) In the end, "Unthinkable" may not have blown our minds in quite the manner we expected, but still provided a concise, and thrilling resolution to an overall extraordinary season. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
90% Arrow: Season 2 - Seeing Red (TV Episode) However clunky and inconsequential "Seeing Red" might have seemed in some spots, good grief did the 'Arrow' team knock this one out of the park by the end. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
100% Arrow: Season 2 - Blind Spot (TV Episode) All in all, "Blind Spot" gave us great use of Laurel and Sebastian Blood that had felt a bit strained in previous weeks, though it's clear the most exciting episodes are yet to come. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
100% Arrow: Season 2 - Broken Dolls (TV Episode) It was apparent even from the smaller scenes with Oliver and Slade that a significant budget had been allotted for the hour...allowing "Broken Dolls" an unexpectedly adventurous feel to accompany its significant reveals. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2018
67% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 - Legendary (TV Episode) I'm reasonably optimistic they can work out some of the kinks by fall, as promised, even if "Legendary" didn't offer much implication of that. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 30, 2018
76% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 - Star City 2046 (TV Episode) Legends of Tomorrow set its rules with such fluidity at the jump, it most always slips in crafting real stakes. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 26, 2018
88% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 - Blood Ties (TV Episode) There are plenty of pieces on the board, but better for Legends to actually decide on a central arc to follow, rather than attempt to juggle three disparate shows in one hour. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2018
88% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 - Pilot, Part 2 (TV Episode) It's a bold choice for the premiere, and one of the first major emotional beats to resonate, and I'm more invested in seeing how showrunners handle that, than anything else. - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2018
67% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 - Pilot, Part 1 (TV Episode) It's also entirely possible that future episodes of the series take the matter more seriously... Still, what the hell were they thinking, to bake such an insane decision into the series' very first hour? - ScreenCrush EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2018
43% Arrow: Season 4 - Schism (TV Episode) Oh, man. Threat of a nuclear apocalypse was just not the best conflict for Arrow to hinge its fourth season finale on... t "Schism" returning immediately to that threat in a 45-minute window seems almost laughable. - ScreenCrush EDIT
