T-Meter Title | Year
83% Southland: Season 3 (TV, 2009-2013) The police drama isn't always completely accurate, but seems to nail the feel of LAPD life down pat. Characters develop on a slow burn that doesn't get in the way of the action. - Screen Rant EDIT

No Score Yet NCIS: Season 8 (TV, 2003) NCIS does a good job of juggling a tense atmosphere with romantic entanglements and a tangible feeling of loss. - Screen Rant EDIT

41% Breakout Kings: Season 1 (TV, 2011-2012) Even forgetting the rather ridiculous idea of cops allowing hardened criminals free reign to chase after their fellow inmates, the show manages to juggle extremely flawed protagonists, who-dun-it mystery and classic chase elements. - Screen Rant EDIT

84% Blue Bloods: Season 1 (TV, 2010) So, is Blue Bloods good enough? For the most part, yes. While certainly not the best procedural out there, it's better than the lions share, and certainly the best on CBS at the moment. - Screen Rant EDIT

86% Merlin: Season 3 (TV, 2009-2012) Those hungry for the continuing adventures of the wizard and the would-be king will be delighted, and eager for the next piece of the story - which, trust me, will pay off on the premiere's setup. - Screen Rant EDIT

62% Terra Nova: Season 1 (TV, 2011) Far from perfect, but it's a joy to watch and just about anyone should find something to like. - Screen Rant EDIT

80% Stargate Universe: Season 2 (TV, 2009-2011) Universe's gritty atmosphere and desperate characters gave us something new, even as it expanded on the Ancient lore established way back in the SG-1 pilot. - Screen Rant EDIT

85% Covert Affairs: Season 2 (TV, 2010-2014) Covert Affairs isn't for everyone, but it's a fun show that doesn't ask too much of its audience (or actors, for that matter). - Screen Rant EDIT

100% Justified: Season 2 (TV, 2010-2015) While Timothy Olyphant and Walton Goggins play their cat and mouse game with practiced skill, it's the two new women of Justified's second season that really shine. - Screen Rant EDIT

83% Castle: Season 4 (TV, 2009-2016) I enjoy Castle. It's one of the shows for which I never miss an episode. But the reason I watch it is not because it's a hard-hitting drama that leaves me on the edge of my seat. It's a silly cop show that's a lot of fun...with some great dialogue. - Screen Rant EDIT

60% Castle: Season 3 (TV, 2009-2016) Without the light-hearted and even flirty back-and-forth, there's not a whole lot to distinguish Castle from any mystery made in the last twenty years - and in fact, there's not much about it that stands out either. - Screen Rant EDIT

73% Californication: Season 4 (TV, 2007-2014) The adult-only themes and humor are still enjoyable, but if the main character continues his unapologetic slide downwards, it's hard to see how the plot will stay compelling. - Screen Rant EDIT
