No Score Yet Doug: Season 7 (TV, 1998-1999) With the possible exception of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, no TV show in the 90s examined the lives of schoolkids with as much pathos and insight as Jim Jinkins' Doug.‐ Guardian

67% Marvel's The Punisher: Season 1 (TV, 2017) It's been the mode of almost all of the streaming giant's Marvel shows: dull, often pointlessly nasty brutality with some languid speechifying between crunching bones. In the Punisher's case, though, it's not even artful fist-fighting.‐ Guardian
