T-Meter Title | Year
100% Covert Affairs: Season 5 (TV, 2010-2014) The evil terrorist forces of the world are obviously ready, considering the explosive nature of the episode. - EDIT

35% Growing Up Fisher: Season 1 (TV, 2014) Growing Up Fisher isn't exactly what you would call "edgy" comedy. When the plot doesn't get any crazier than a blind guy taking a chainsaw to a tree, it's hard to say that a show provides biting social commentary and meta humor. - EDIT

91% Sherlock: Season 3 (TV, 2010-2017) Some will dislike how Sherlock answers the question of the false death. Others may find fault in the increased humor of the season -- and it's often very funny. - EDIT

71% Witches of East End: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) Bad acting, hokey storylines or no humor would have derailed the premiere completely. None of that happens. Instead, we get a funny show that brings in just enough intrigue -- and, yes, magic -- to make a viewer come back for more. - EDIT

96% Parks and Recreation: Season 6 (TV, 2009-2015) OK, this one was pretty much inevitable and a shining example of a happy, healthy relationship on TV. - EDIT

83% Bones: Season 9 (TV, 2005-2017) After the premiere episode it's nice to see the couple all functional again. Granted, it takes a murder... to truly accomplish this, but we take what we can get. And the results really are quite entertaining. - EDIT

57% Star-Crossed: Season 1 (TV, 2014) With all of the sentimentality of the show concentrated in the Emery-Roman relationship, the politics and prejudices of the greater world can tackle real issues clearly and honestly. - EDIT

58% Reign: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2017) The historical fiction only makes me appreciate Reign more: This joyful look into the past makes the dullest of facts come alive. - EDIT

57% The Originals: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2018) Even though the story repeats what is already known to Vampire Diaries fans, the suave presence of Elijah and the vicious hotness of Klaus should be plenty to keep the converted around. - EDIT

32% Super Fun Night: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) This is a good show. It's funny, it's weird and it makes heroes out of the kinds of women usually shoved to the side in popular entertainment. - EDIT

94% Orphan Black: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2017) The dark tone and the malicious atmosphere of Orphan Black keep things tense throughout the first episode. As it turns out, this a good thing. - EDIT

72% Graceland: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2015) All the audience can do is catch the show's wave and hope that we can ride it all the way. - EDIT

38% Cult: Season 1 (TV, 2013) It's worth a chance, especially if you're the type who gets bored by the standard show on television. Because if nothing else, Cult is as original as they come. - EDIT

87% The Americans: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2018) It's gritty, sometimes dark and unquestionably great to watch. - EDIT

90% Ripper Street: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2017) The result is as excellent as it is dark. - EDIT

67% Community: Season 4 (TV, 2009-2015) Community is still funny. I'd even go so far to say that this show remains one of the silliest, cleverest and weirdest comedies on television. And the Season 4 premiere had moments of that sheer brilliance we have loved about Community for years. - EDIT
