T-Meter Title | Year
90% Killing Eve: Season 2 - Nice and Neat (TV Episode) Yes, the story is a little contrived, and it requires the wily assassin to act against her usual instincts for the majority of the episode, but I think that's the point. - TV Insider EDIT

87% True Detective : Season 3 - Now Am Found (TV Episode) Did this final episode bring closure? Partly. But that's beside the point. Even when an answer is found, whether in fiction or in life itself, we still have to live with the results. The story keeps going, as Amelia put it. - TV Insider EDIT

100% True Detective : Season 3 - Hunters in the Dark (TV Episode) If "Hunters in the Dark" is anything to go by, then Pizzolatto seems to have learned from the mistakes of seasons past. This episode proves that the speculation and fan theories are true. - TV Insider EDIT

92% True Detective : Season 3 - If You Have Ghosts (TV Episode) There was a sense of momentum to this episode that was perhaps lacking in the first half of the season. There were much-needed answers, even if each answer was met with a hundred more questions. - TV Insider EDIT

69% True Detective : Season 3 - The Hour and the Day (TV Episode) This episode doesn't exactly provide us with any forward momentum. The show is holding its cards way close to the chest and I can see that becoming frustrating from some viewers who are more in this for the mystery elements than a character study. - TV Line EDIT

93% True Detective : Season 3 - The Big Never (TV Episode) If you're looking for an in-depth character study then True Detective season three is sure to be hitting that soft spot. Those in it for the narrative twists and turns may feel a little underwhelmed so far. - TV Insider EDIT

100% True Detective : Season 3 - Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye (TV Episode) After the first episode of True Detective set the murky vibe and introduced the third season's mystery, the second installment, "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye," is more of a meditative slow-burn. - TV Insider EDIT

85% Doctor Who: Season 11 - The Witchfinders (TV Episode) In a season of higher quality, this would probably only amount to an above-average installment of Who, but in this mixed bag of a series, "The Witchfinders" was an enchanting episode. - TV Insider EDIT

97% Westworld: Season 2 - Phase Space (TV Episode) While this episode felt overly crammed with characters and separate storylines, it did move a few significant pieces into place and that should hopefully clear a path for a more streamlined narrative heading into the remaining four episodes. - TV Insider EDIT
