Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
78% Get Shorty: Season 1 (TV, 2017) The gritty realism and forceful dialogue easily lend themselves to the little or big screen.‐ Haaretz

94% Veep: Season 6 (TV, 2017) But the real star of the show is and always has been creator Armando Iannucci.‐ Haaretz

92% Better Call Saul: Season 3 - Lantern (TV Episode) The sacrifice he makes in the final episode of Season 3 may cost him dearly in financial terms, but it saves the character from the oblivion of losing the audience's sympathy.‐ Haaretz

76% Fargo: Season 3 - Somebody to Love (TV Episode) If Season 3 is, indeed, the final chapter in the "Fargo" canon, it went out on a high.‐ Haaretz

No Score Yet The Jim Jefferies Show: Season 1 (TV, 2017) After sitting through 18 of the show's 21 minutes, laughing out loud a couple of times and enjoying several of the jokes, still I was underwhelmed.‐ Haaretz

87% Room 104: Season 1 (TV, 2017) This is one-night-stand TV in an era when even one night is too much commitment. It's a 23-minute-stand.‐ Haaretz

93% The Deuce: Season 1 (TV, 2017) David Simon...remains the master of generating empathy of unlikeable characters and sympathy for behavior that, in the hands of any other writer, would turn any audience against the heroes.‐ Haaretz

23% Disjointed: Parts 1 & 2 (TV, 2017-2018) Given that marijuana is famous for inducing giggles in those who consume it, "Disjointed" is disappointingly short on laughs.‐ Haaretz

93% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - Dragonstone (TV Episode) If there is strength in silence, then Daenerys' return to Dragonstone could well be the most powerful scene of the episode.‐ Haaretz

69% House of Cards: Season 5 (TV, 2017) It may be justifiably accused of erring on the side of the theatrical, but the dialogue sparkles and the plot is (more or less) believable.‐ Haaretz

100% Detectorists: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "Detectorists" is buried treasure: you might have to dig a little deeper than usual to unearth its joys, but when you do, it's totally worth it.‐ Haaretz

33% Our Cartoon President: Season 1 (TV, 2018) But, funny or not, satire demands a level of sophistication that is sadly lacking from "Our Cartoon President." ‐ Haaretz

80% SMILF: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "SMILF" won't be to everybody's taste, but, like its creator, it is entertaining, smart, sassy and sexy.‐ Haaretz

95% The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Mrs. Maisel" is a very different kind of show; the kind you should savor, week by week, and not the kind to be consumed in one sitting.‐ Haaretz

100% Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency: Season 2 (TV, 2017) Television Dirk is as frantic and as manic as his literary counterpart, rushing with abandon from scene to scene, relying on fate to rescue him and generally allowing the universe to guide him.‐ Haaretz

100% High Maintenance: Season 2 (TV, 2018) Characters float in an out of the "High Maintenance" universe just as they do in real life; our interactions with them are random and fleeting, but the compassion and humor of the writing make the poignant and touching.‐ Haaretz

85% Black Mirror: Season 4 (TV, 2017) [These episodes] contribute to and expand the Brooker canon, which is rapidly becoming to 21st-century techno-fiction what Phillip K. Dick was to science fiction in the 1950s and 1960s.‐ Haaretz
