65% Black Mirror: Season 3 - Shut Up and Dance (TV Episode) No episode of "Black Mirror" will leave you feeling worse about humanity than this one. It's brilliantly plotted and paced, and the ultimate prank is on you. Oh, also? It could happen. ‐ TheWrap

93% Last Week Tonight With John Oliver: Season 1 (TV, 2014) The fact that so much of the show relies on Oliver means he bears the burden of getting the tone exactly right. And right now, he's a little more angry than funny.‐ TheWrap

85% Black Mirror: Season 4 (TV, 2017) The show seems to have some thoughts about race and criminal justice that it never quite completes. But it haunts me more than any other show. I love it all the more because its brilliance feels finite.‐ TheWrap

70% Mom: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) Mom feels like more than an opiate. We're early in the 12 steps. But heart and commitment mean everything.‐ TheWrap

96% American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson (TV, 2016) The series feels hyper-real, hypnotic, and more relevant now than ever.‐ TheWrap

87% The Knick: Season 1 (TV, 2014) Despite first impressions that can feel one-note, all the characters turn out to be complicated and intriguing. And we become slowly addicted by the jittery uncertainty of The Knick.‐ TheWrap

50% Turn: Washington's Spies: Season 1 (TV, 2014) It helps that the show is well-acted, and that everything from the fonts to the costumes to the camerawork are gorgeous. You may need a while to puzzle out what's happening on screen, but at least you can enjoy some lovely scenery.‐ TheWrap

82% Mad Men: Season 7 - The Monolith (TV Episode) Sunday's "Mad Men" found Don Draper back where he started: writing tag lines, this time under the supervision of his former secretary. The show's exit music nicely captured how much he's spinning in circles.‐ TheWrap

89% Mad Men: Season 7 (TV, 2014-2015) We won't be able to fully appreciate it from moment to moment, because we're so eager to learn what's coming next, to get to whatever the future holds. But that future is a world without Mad Men, so let's not get there too fast.‐ TheWrap

76% Halt and Catch Fire: Season 1 (TV, 2014) All of the acting is outstanding. No one delivers big speeches. But when they do speak, their words feel as precise and efficient as lines of code.‐ TheWrap

39% Believe: Season 1 (TV, 2014) NBC drama is promising, but needs villains we can really root against.‐ TheWrap

61% Crisis: Season 1 (TV, 2014) You might get into Crisis, if you like characters and crises piled atop one another, and are willing to sort them out later.‐ TheWrap

95% Rectify: Season 2 (TV, 2014) Few shows are so grounded. And, if you have a little patience, few shows are so worth watching.‐ TheWrap

100% Veep: Season 3 (TV, 2014) The show works because all of its actors seem so human, so likeable, despite the words coming from their mouths.‐ TheWrap

81% The Spoils of Babylon: Season 1 (TV, 2014) It's gloriously, throw-up-your hands ridiculous.‐ TheWrap

61% Chicago P.D.: Season 1 (TV, 2014) I enjoyed Chicago P.D. The new NBC procedural breathes enough to feel like it isn't a procedural at all.‐ TheWrap

66% Mob City: Season 1 (TV, 2013) Check out Darabont's new limited-run series, Mob City, to see how a show can burn slowly and brightly at once.‐ TheWrap

93% Louie: Season 4 (TV, 2014) Louie is television's best half-hour drama. It's also one of the best comedies, when it still wants to be, which isn't all that often.‐ TheWrap

98% Game of Thrones: Season 4 - First of His Name (TV Episode) Some stories show good people overcoming injustices, and reassure us that all is right with the world. But the more powerful stories may be the ones where the injustices go unpunished.‐ TheWrap

97% Game of Thrones: Season 4 - Oathkeeper (TV Episode) The show has begun departing significantly from the books on which it is based, which means 'Game of Thrones' has more of an anything-can-happen feel than ever before.‐ TheWrap

100% Game of Thrones: Season 4 - The Lion and the Rose (TV Episode) I first watched a critic's screening copy of the episode a few weeks ago, and struggled not to share my joy with everyone around me. A few days ago, I needed a pick-me-up, so I watched King Joffrey die again. Still great the second time.‐ TheWrap

97% Game of Thrones: Season 4 (TV, 2014) This is a gorgeous spectacle. Aside from the Star Wars saga, I can't think of any on-screen story that creates such a vast, believable world out of imagination.‐ TheWrap

53% Dracula: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) The fact that Dracula is now a Victorian Steve Jobs adds to the confusion in the Dracula update, which I enjoyed watching, but which I think is doomed.‐ TheWrap

100% It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 9 (TV, 2013) Becoming the big dog hasn't cost Sunny its bite. It's only gotten meaner and funnier.‐ TheWrap

88% Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) One of its strengths is that it isn't just a star vehicle for Samberg. It's an ensemble from the Parks and Recreation team of Mike Schur and Dan Goor that gives all the varied cast mates lots of shots at being funny.‐ TheWrap

0% Dads: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) Bigotry by helpless losers looks like the sad, impotent venting it is.‐ TheWrap

38% Intelligence: Season 1 (TV, 2014) The attempt to ground the show in reality feels unnecessary and not fun, because nothing here is all that unbelievable.‐ TheWrap

54% The Crazy Ones: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) Am I judging TV characters? No. I'm judging show creator David E. Kelley for not giving them more dimensions.‐ TheWrap

57% Reign: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) The CW series does a fairly effortless-looking job of combining a 16th-century setting with a fluid, modern dynamic.‐ TheWrap
