100% Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Season 6 (TV, 2014) It seems like a rollicking adventure and conspiracy yarn set in the narrative universe of a famed and lucrative media franchise, but every now and then, you scratch away at the surface and find something very purposeful.‐

90% Bates Motel: Season 2 (TV, 2014) It's not as if Season 2 had any less going on, but rather that everything that was happening was connected to other stories in a more cohesive way than Season 1 managed to achieve.‐

98% The Good Fight: Season 1 (TV, 2017) The Good Fight is charged with a sense of relevancy and a reason for existing beyond brand extension and helping to launch a streaming platform in a crowded marketplace. ‐

100% Elementary: Season 3 (TV, 2014-2015) I turn to the idea of Sherlock's subtle dismantling of his sobriety system as Sherlock easing off the grind for a way to really accept the relapse as the culmination of Sherlock's arc this season. ‐

95% The Good Wife: Season 4 (TV, 2012-2013) [The finale] capped off an uneven fourth season full of of ill-conceived and half-baked plots.‐

85% The Flash: Season 3 (TV, 2016-2017) My basic point, and the show's, is this: Barry will always return to doing whatever is best for the Wests -- and the Season 3 premiere "Flashpoint" proved that once again.‐

100% Elementary: Season 2 (TV, 2013-2014) All in all, a very good premiere.‐

29% Of Kings and Prophets: Season 1 (TV, 2015) Of Kings and Prophets wasn't all that interesting as things stand right now.‐

60% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 (TV, 2016) While I think the show is pretty obviously a vehicle for Miller and Garber, the cast is strong enough that most anyone could steal a scene, and I think that alone may be worth the price of admission. ‐

28% Minority Report: Season 1 (TV, 2015) Meagan Good and Stark Sands have limited chemistry and the show's conception of the future and how Dash's pre-cog abilities work (he's the weakest of them, but seems pretty on-point, overall?) are hazy at best.‐

7% Dr. Ken: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) TV calculus is far more complicated than what I'm about to reduce it to, but, I swear to the TV gods, if ABC canceled the funny and occasionally sharp Cristela for this paint-by-numbers exasperated dad sitcom, I will break something. ‐

9% Rosewood: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) The show is a near-weightless charming consultant (private pathologist)/tough cop pap that manages to stay somewhat grounded due to the oodles and oodles of charisma Morris Chestnut provides. ‐

100% The Good Wife: Season 7 (TV, 2015-2016) Certainly "Bond" was a very solid episode of The Good Wife, and it had a number of interesting paths to follow with Alicia and Eli's respective reboots.‐

100% Elementary: Season 4 (TV, 2015-2016) I realized what was making me happy about the episode was also why I missed Elementary: Adult characters act like adults on this show. ‐

97% Hannibal: Season 3 (TV, 2015) Hannibal uses its source materials in a way that creates a wholly new work that still feels like the original.‐

88% Arrow: Season 4 (TV, 2015-2016) I found myself not just intrigued but somewhat excited about Arrow thanks to Green Arrow.‐

100% The Flash: Season 2 (TV, 2015-2016) The episode had lots of other stuff it needed to set up, and in that regard, it this did pretty well.‐

71% Defiance: Season 3 (TV, 2015) Despite knowing better at this point, I found myself liking the Season 3 premiere of Defiance. ‐

100% The Good Wife: Season 6 (TV, 2014-2015) We, and the show, are just getting started, and if there's one thing The Good Wife does well, it's surprise us.‐

81% Arrow: Season 3 (TV, 2014-2015) What a breath of fresh air Routh's Ray Palmer is! Obviously the character was conceived in no small part as a complement to Emily Bett Rickards' take on Felicity.‐

53% The Lottery: Season 1 (TV, 2014) Even with its faults, I'm still very interested, and sort of excited, about the show's potential. ‐

100% The Legend of Korra: Season 3 (TV, 2014) "The Terror Within" was an exciting episode. ‐

20% Stalker: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) Every not-so-great new TV series premiering this fall owes the new CBS drama Stalker a fruit basket, because Stalker is so dreadful that it makes all those not-so-great shows look not-half-bad by comparison.‐

92% The Flash: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) No matter what The Flash has in store for us, it seems primed to be the most fun show in its class, so I'm eager to see what's next.‐

47% The Killing: Season 4 (TV, 2014) It was a show whose parts never added up to a consistently great whole, even though they very well could have if the show had just gotten out of its own way. The Killing was good, sometimes very good, but never as good as it could've been.‐

70% Murder in the First: Season 1 (TV, 2014) The show is merely solid-albeit wholly unambitious-and when there are so many more exciting shows on the horizon, solid and unambitious don't really cut it.‐

100% Defiance: Season 2 (TV, 2014) This arc now has the potential to offer more personal drama, and that has me slightly more optimistic about its potential, as it could rattle the show's characters more than prophecies and religious cults did.‐

100% The Fosters: Season 2 (TV, 2014-2015) [The season premiere] was a smoother, more typical episode of the series, with a more normal mix of ups, downs, secrets, and one very big surprise.‐

100% The Good Wife: Season 5 (TV, 2013-2014) I feel like I say this every time The Good Wife returns: I had no idea how much I missed this show.‐

100% Supernatural: Season 2 (TV, 2006-2007) The initial story units - Dean dealing with guilt and death of John and establishing the Roadhouse - work well, and I'm eager to see how the show develops these concepts and also introduces new ones.‐ Christian Science Monitor
