T-Meter Title | Year
86% Kung Fu: Season 1 (TV, 2021) The acting was fine given the script, and I will say that Olivia Liang is a charismatic lead and as the backbone of the show she does anchor it well. - Black Nerd Problems EDIT

100% Kid Cosmic: Season 1 (TV, 2021) This is the pinnacle of excellent storytelling and cartooning, a prime example of how to leverage an innate understanding of trope and how to lean into, subvert, and elevate it into fantastic storytelling. - Black Nerd Problems EDIT

88% Superman & Lois: Season 1 (TV, 2021) There are enough things to latch onto that I'll see where it's going, but the charismatic energy of the leads can only do so much and there's only so much excitement I can hold for a series that is just good. - Black Nerd Problems EDIT

90% Cobra Kai: Season 3 (TV, 2018) One: immediately after finishing season three, I rewatched it despite all of my qualms. Two: I desperately want to know when to expect season four. Three: COBRA KAI NEVER DIES. - Black Nerd Problems EDIT

66% Locke & Key: Season 1 (TV, 2020) It is a rare example of when an adaptation not only manages to distill the best qualities of the source material, but able to seamlessly add onto it and enrich the narrative. - Black Nerd Problems EDIT

63% Snowpiercer: Season 1 (TV, 2019) This was a proper way to reboot and relaunch this series. You have a strong cast, great direction, and a world that is paradoxically both self-contained and boundless. - Black Nerd Problems EDIT

95% Castlevania: Season 3 (TV, 2017) Castlevania is truly a shinning example of what a video game adaptation should aspire to be. It has a deep respect for the source material, while also having a fun time pointing out some of the more ridiculous elements of the series. - Black Nerd Problems EDIT

99% Mindhunter: Season 2 (TV, 2017-2019) After all is said and done, Mindhunter's sophomore effort shows an ambition when it comes to its craft. - Black Nerd Problems EDIT

94% Jett: Season 1 (TV, 2019) For those who can stomach it, JETT does do a lot of interesting things from a storytelling perspective. Plot and writing aside, the production of the series is incredible. - Black Nerd Problems EDIT

90% Cobra Kai: Season 2 (TV, 2018) It's not perfect, but it interrogates a lot of social issues through the lens of a weird karate themed school drama set in 2019 and it shouldn't work, but... it does. - Black Nerd Problems EDIT
