T-Meter Title | Year
87% The Haunting of Bly Manor: Miniseries (TV, 2020) Spooky, well-timed lightning has indeed struck twice: The streamer's follow-up to 2018's The Haunting of Hill House is as gripping and grounded as its predecessor. - TV Line EDIT

75% The Undoing: Season 1 (TV, 2020) It's best to strap into this smartly paced, beautifully acted, profoundly suspenseful roller coaster blindly, as I did. - TV Line EDIT

96% The Good Fight: Season 3 (TV, 2017) Audra McDonald absolutely crushed it as Liz struggled to make peace with her dad's monstrous past. She's the episode's MVP. - TV Line EDIT

100% Schitt's Creek: Season 4 (TV, 2015) I adore the little enclave that is Schitt's Creek. I want to relocate there. I want to shop at David and Patrick's adorable apothecary shop. I want to work as a waiter at Café Tropical (if for no other reason than to serve Moira her signature fruit cup). - TV Line EDIT

B 66% House of Cards: Season 6 (TV, 2013-2018) House of Cards Season 6 is a bit of a mess, but it's an entertaining mess. And after investing five seasons in this show, it's one I'm happy exists. - TV Line EDIT

92% Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 8 (TV, 2000) Of course, you'd be hard-pressed to find someone in the Curb premiere who didn't want Larry dead. - TV Line EDIT

B+ 98% The Good Fight: Season 1 (TV, 2017) Not surprisingly, the actress rises to the occasion, thereby confirming what many a Good Wife fan suspected going in: [Christine] Baranski makes a helluva leading lady. - TV Line EDIT

B+ 70% Roseanne: Season 10 (TV, 1988-2018) How much you enjoy Roseanne's return will depend a great deal on how well you're able to overlook a Trump Plaza-sized continuity gaffe. I largely managed to do that, which speaks volumes about the strength of these new episodes. - TV Line EDIT

95% Bates Motel: Season 3 (TV, 2013-2017) It's totally, completely Psycho. - TV Line EDIT

D- 94% Twin Peaks: The Return (TV, 1990-2017) It's hard not to feel like I've been completely, utterly duped. The two-hour kickoff did not repair the damage wrought by Season 2. If anything, it was like taking a sip of damn fine coffee after learning that someone had stuck a fish in the pot. - TV Line EDIT

100% The Leftovers: Season 2 - A Most Powerful Adversary (TV Episode) "It's going to be a hard day, buddy," Patti warns Kevin at the beginning of Sunday's episode of The Leftovers. She wasn't fooling. - TV Guide EDIT

94% The Leftovers: Season 2 (TV, 2014-2017) The Leftovers launched its second season Sunday with a new setting, an overhauled ensemble and a fresh Departure-related mystery. - TV Guide EDIT

91% The Walking Dead: Season 6 - Here's Not Here (TV Episode) OK, okay, you win, The Walking Dead. After this week's revealing 90-minute Morganpalooza, I have no choice but to feel crappy about hating so hard on the live-and-let-liver during "JSS," and I imagine a few of you probably feel the same. - TV Guide EDIT

67% Madam Secretary: Season 1 (TV, 2014) A confident, rousing performance from Leoni and a strong script from Homeland alum Barbara Hall elevates what could've been a derivative fish-out-of-water tale. - TV Line EDIT

89% Veronica Mars: Season 3 (TV, 2004-2007) The Battlestar "cross-over" was just one of many highlights from this season's first two episodes - TV Guide EDIT
