T-Meter Title | Year
26% Hemlock Grove: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2015) Unfortunately, watching the whole thing was less like some kind of insane, bloody feast of oohs and aahs and surprises, and more like eating $28 of McDonald's in your car late at night. - Grantland EDIT

88% American Horror Story: Asylum - Madness Ends (TV Episode) This finale was palpably satisfying, like eating an entire pizza by yourself with no one watching. - Grantland EDIT

69% American Horror Story: Asylum - Continuum (TV Episode) I'm totally flummoxed and disappointed by certain aspects of last night's episode, namely the fact that Kit Walker (Evan Peters) had the unbelievable bad luck to cohabitate with two ax murderers. Ax murdering is not contagious: It is not the flu. - Grantland EDIT

100% American Horror Story: Asylum - The Name Game (TV Episode) Just when you think American Horror Story: Asylum can't possibly get more Baroque, it shimmies up a gilded spire and tosses a zillion putti at your head until you beg for mercy. - Grantland EDIT

88% American Horror Story: Asylum - Spilt Milk (TV Episode) Perhaps it's not surprising, considering the trajectory of this season, that episode number 11 of 13 doesn't waste any time reflecting on past events - it expects you to do most of the work yourself. - Grantland EDIT

100% American Horror Story: Asylum - The Coat Hanger (TV Episode) Perpetual man-baby Thredson is back on the loose, so mommies, padlock your chastity belts. - Grantland EDIT

88% American Horror Story: Asylum - Unholy Night (TV Episode) I guess it was time for an episodic bridge, an installment with dialogue set to soap-opera music (and an instrumental of the creepiest carol, "Hark How the Bells"), but it seemed a little bit on the nose compared to weeks past. - Grantland EDIT

80% Penny Dreadful: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2016) Penny Dreadful is luxurious Gothic fan fiction, but after just two hours, it proves why that might not be a bad thing. - Grantland EDIT

84% The Walking Dead: Season 3 - I Ain't a Judas (TV Episode) The show's grip on me grows tighter throughout the episode, and by the time the prison crew starts pitching that Andrea kill the Governor ("you chose a warm bed over a friend") after a schnookle session, I'm kind of hooked. - Grantland EDIT
