T-Meter Title | Year
3/5 86% Cheat: Series 1 (TV, 2018) There isn't much out-and-out action, but it has a palpable feeling that writer Gaby Hull is carefully moving pieces into place for a big climax - just enough manoeuvring to make me curious about episode two. - Independent (UK) EDIT

85% Suburgatory: Season 1 (TV, 2011-2014) A mickey-take of American suburbia that doesn't even have the courage of its convictions? Let's call it garbagatory. See what I've done there? - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

3/5 56% Inside the Foreign Office: Miniseries (TV, 2018) Much of the diplomatic work covered was important and admirable, focusing on Russia, Burma and Ukraine. But, unfortunately, people doing good work does not make a riveting documentary, and the pace flagged. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Joanna Lumley's Silk Road Adventure: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Few other people would get away with the fact-light content and broad-strokes history, but Lumley is such an amiable traveling companion, it is forgiven. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet Gogglebox: Series One (TV, 2013) Television always seems like a warmer, more hopeful place when the Goggleboxers are on-air but they can do better than this. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

3/5 80% Trust: Season 1 (TV, 2018) While the production is lavish, the stylised, in-your-face storytelling and the patchy characterisation make Trust hard work. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 74% Suits: Season 1 (TV, 2011) Inessential stuff, of course, but entertaining. Watching it, I could feel myself becoming a little bit of a Suits nerd. Just a very little bit... - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 100% Last Tango in Halifax: Season 3 (TV, 2012-2017) Wainwright's development of the families, her empathy with the female characters and her warm and witty dialogue mean the series rises to levels far above its plot twists. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 95% The Game: Season 1 (TV, 2014) We are, of course, deep in le Carré country here, and the production already has something of the look and feel of the classic 1973-set Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. There is little higher praise. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

3/5 100% Foyle's War: Season 8 (TV, 2002-2015) The shifting currents of the post-conflict era, and of Foyle's own position, make it a more intriguing, shadowy and complex series than before. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 92% Modern Family: Season 3 (TV, 2009) Slick editing, great acting and super-smart humour. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT
