T-Meter Title | Year
91% Gangs of London: Season 1 (TV, 2020) Gangs of London has copped criticism for its visceral brutality, but the brilliant cast, the character development, and its unromanticised depiction of a grimy, multi-ethnic underworld are compelling. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

100% Trickster: Miniseries (TV, 0) Unlike any horror series in recent memory. It's been compared to Stranger Things, but Trickster is much more unnerving; keep the lights on. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

79% Briarpatch: Season 1 (TV, 2020) While there are shades of David Lynch and, with its sun-baked Albuquerque landscapes, the occasional feel of Breaking Bad, Briarpatch is a fresh, darkly comic whodunnit. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

100% PEN15: Season 2 (TV, 2019) Pen15 is a comedy, but Konkle and Erskine are not merely playing caricatures - it's a realistic, beautiful portrait of female friendship, and the laughs are tempered by a sense of poignancy, and an uncomfortable recognition. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

78% The Split: Season 2 (TV, 2018) Unthreading over the season, this storyline builds into something very much of the moment, but it's done with a light touch. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

62% Ratched: Season 1 (TV, 2019) This limited series is such fun, a sort of mash-up of the slasher sensibilities of American Horror Story with the old campy Hollywood glamour of Feud. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

93% I Hate Suzie: Season 1 (TV, 0) I Hate Suzie is scathingly, blackly funny as well as unexpectedly moving, as much an emotional ride for the viewer as it is for Suzie. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

No Score Yet Halifax: Retribution: Miniseries (TV, 0) When Gibney first inhabited the role of Halifax, a female protagonist was still, shockingly, a rarity, and Gibney owned it, and once again she wholly inhabits the meaty role written specifically for her. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

60% The Deceived: Season 1 (TV, 2020) Creepy without being too disturbing (indeed it's a little silly in places), and with a pleasing twist, it's the viewing equivalent of comfort food, combining classic film tropes with timeless, undemanding subject matter. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

86% The Salisbury Poisonings: Series 1 (TV, 2020) The Salisbury Poisonings gets bogged down occasionally in the minutiae of public health operations, but it serves in particular as a dignified tribute to Dawn Sturgess. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

96% I'll Be Gone in the Dark: Season 1 (TV, 2020) Deviating from the well-trodden arc of most true-crime documentaries, I'll Be Gone in the Dark tells several parallel stories, each of them interwoven, yet discretely fascinating. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

84% Tales From the Loop: Season 1 (TV, 2020) Tales from the Loop is a unique series in which everything happens: life, death, love, parenthood, longing and ageing. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

86% High Fidelity: Season 1 (TV, 2020) Despite looking effortlessly cool, Kravit manages to embody the slacker superfan perfectly; she's both annoyingly self-pitying and relatable (particularly to those of us who have ended relationships on the basis of bad record collections). - The Age (Australia) EDIT

67% Why Women Kill: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Each situation is not straightforward, and the stories, while not exactly nuanced, do take some surprising and entertaining turns. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

71% Punk: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Much more than in many documentaries featuring talking heads, the line-up here impart genuinely meaty insights, anecdotes and archival photos and footage, some never before seen. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

38% Brand X with Russell Brand: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) It's a waste of precious time when he could be riffing about homelessness and injustice in the sharp, eloquent way his fans know his is capable of. - Sydney Morning Herald EDIT

88% Country Music: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Like his previous works, a personal interest in the subject is not a necessity to enjoy Country Music, especially the early episodes. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

85% Das Boot: Season 1 (TV, 2018-2019) It's gritty and European and there's shocking violence and many a blokey, navy joke that likely wouldn't make the final edit in some series. But it's also well scripted and beautifully filmed. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

93% This Country: Season 2 (TV, 2017) Quietly funny and razor-sharp, it's one of the best mockumentary comedies in years. - The Age (Australia) EDIT

100% Beyond the Walls: Miniseries (TV, 2016) With beautiful production design and taut pacing, Beyond the Walls makes a nice change from the current horror/fantasy trend for flat-out gore; this is unnerving horror of the mind. - Sydney Morning Herald EDIT
