Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
81% Downton Abbey: Season 3 (TV, 2013) "Downton Abbey is a self-contained world, one to which loyal viewers will be happy to return. New viewers are strongly encouraged to pay a visit. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Jun 29, 2016
41% Angel From Hell: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The decent jokes, fast pace and hard-working cast - with Jane Lynch doing most of the heavy lifting - make the half hour pass quickly. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Jan 6, 2016
82% Longmire: Season 1 (TV, 2012) "A good plot or interesting characters can be enough for a drama series. Unfortunately, Longmire lacks both. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Nov 19, 2015
23% Donny!: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The only thing worse than spending time with a loudmouth who thinks he's charming is when the loudmouth actually charms you. This is painful to admit, but that actually happens with USA's new sitcom Donny! " ‐ Media Life
Posted Nov 10, 2015
61% Flesh and Bone: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "At eight 60-minute-long episodes, it's hopelessly and frustratingly padded. Walley-Beckett's point is still hard to discern, but whatever it is, it's not worth the time. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Nov 6, 2015
100% Master of None: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Master of None... frequently takes its time building to endings that sometimes feel unfinished. But since that's the way things often work out in life, the series is consistently real, as well as consistently funny. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Nov 5, 2015
28% Agent X: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The plots take an unexpectedly heavy turn, but its hero keeps playing an average nice guy. Viewers will probably have no idea how to react. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Nov 5, 2015
98% Ash vs. Evil Dead: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "When old friends get back together, it's not surprising if they dwell on the past. Ash vs Evil Dead is nothing new, but everyone involved seems to be having such a good time that it's hard not to get pulled in. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Oct 28, 2015
16% Wicked City: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Without glamour, nostalgia or a fresh take on our violent culture, Wicked City is wicked redundant. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Oct 27, 2015
96% Supergirl: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The series looks like good, clean fun, with a dollop of today's confused feminism thrown in. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Oct 26, 2015
57% The Guilty: Season 1 (TV, 2013) "Although fans of traditional detective fiction may not get what they expected, the emotional payoff more than compensates. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Oct 20, 2015
13% Truth Be Told: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The show's survival will depend on the likability of the stars and the quality of the writing. Both are above average. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Oct 15, 2015
90% Casual: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Casual ventures into relatively unexplored territory and finds some fresh laughs and insights along the way. But it winds up in an unpleasant place. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Oct 13, 2015
96% Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend sneaks up on us and wins us over. It's almost like being in love. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Oct 9, 2015
100% Fargo: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "The eerie winter landscapes have lost none of their power. That's just one of the trademarks of Fargo that we're happy to see again. It isn't easy to keep a brand both recognizable and fresh. For that, FX, thanks a bunch! " ‐ Media Life
Posted Oct 8, 2015
64% American Horror Story: Hotel (TV, 2015) "The series' loyal fan base may be inured to the gore and willing to trust that the producers will get some story lines moving, but the first episode will leave the unconverted unconvinced. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Oct 7, 2015
86% The Enfield Haunting: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The subtlety is in the interaction between the characters. That may not be enough for viewers expecting either an intellectual puzzle or a thrill ride, but it could scare up some viewers. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Oct 5, 2015
26% Best Time Ever With Neil Patrick Harris: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Yes, the title is ironic, but neither grown-ups nor children are going to have the best time ever. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Oct 5, 2015
7% Dr. Ken: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "So Dr. Ken is about a guy who is slightly obnoxious at work and slightly overbearing at home. That should be slightly funny, but it's not. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Oct 2, 2015
78% The Daily Show With Trevor Noah: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Noah was good, but he wasn't great. For such an out-of-left-field choice, he showed no signs of bringing a fresh sensibility to the show or a fresh angle on the news. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Oct 1, 2015
53% Code Black: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Even CBS's franchise-happy viewers must occasionally want to see something new. Sadly, Code Black doesn't provide it. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Sep 30, 2015
93% The Grinder: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "If the writers and actors keep working hard... the characters and their warm interpersonal relationships will likely win us over before watching becomes a trial. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Sep 29, 2015
69% Grandfathered: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Grandfathered is one of those shows that are on the line between worth watching and not worth watching. This time, we prefer to see the house as half full. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Sep 28, 2015
84% Quantico: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The characters are well drawn and relatable, and the central mystery hooks us right away. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Sep 28, 2015
43% Heroes Reborn: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "The three episodes that were provided for review keep the various plotlines moving efficiently. One gets the feeling that the lines will eventually converge, which is not always the case in these large-ensemble dramas. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Sep 24, 2015
38% The Player: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Like Snipes in his most recent high-profile movie, "The Player" is expendable. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Sep 23, 2015
62% Blood & Oil: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It helps that the premiere ends with a cliffhanger that leaves all of the major characters in jeopardy. As the Three Stooges once put it, oil's well that ends well. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Sep 22, 2015
63% The Muppets: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Although The Muppets shares the backstage focus of the old Muppet Show, it lacks the spunkiness and innocence. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Sep 22, 2015
29% Minority Report: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Minority Report has promising and off-putting elements. It would be unjust to charge it with precrimes, but our precog intuition isn't hopeful. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Sep 21, 2015
68% Scream Queens: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It seems unlikely that Scream Queens will pull of the same trick as Scream the movie: being funny and suspenseful at the same time. Most viewers will settle for either, but the show will probably fall short at both. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Sep 18, 2015
31% Moonbeam City: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The comedy in Moonbeam City is scattershot, and it misses more than it hits. The writers should concentrate their fire on one target. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Sep 18, 2015
91% The Late Show With Stephen Colbert: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "If [Colbert] keeps letting the mask slip, he may find his ratings slipping as well. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Sep 11, 2015
68% Blindspot: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Despite [its] misgivings, Blindspot is worth a first and a second look. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Sep 9, 2015
79% Arthur & George: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Aiming for the middle, Arthur & George ends up being below average. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Sep 3, 2015
30% Hand of God: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) "The promising premise and the talented cast will hold [viewers] longer than the series ultimately proves to deserve. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Sep 3, 2015
78% Narcos: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "After a slow start, Netflix's new 10-episode drama Narcos, which is about the pursuit of the famous Colombian cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar, gets its hooks in and is hard to stop watching. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Aug 28, 2015
57% Limitless: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Limitless deserves a sampling and then a second look. It could be either a temporary high or truly addictive. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Aug 26, 2015
68% The Carmichael Show: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "One hesitates to criticize the in-your-face comedy of the new sitcom The Carmichael Show when NBC has graciously scheduled it so that the smallest possible audience will watch it. Still, the show is mediocre. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Aug 26, 2015
81% Public Morals: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's easy for a director to fall in love with his d├ęcor to the detriment of the storytelling. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Aug 26, 2015
77% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Unlike too many living-dead movies and TV shows, Fear the Walking Dead makes us care. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Aug 21, 2015
7% Rosewood: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "In the case of Fox's new crime drama Rosewood, it's hard to spot a single cause of death, but the series' multiple small ailments will probably kill it off quickly. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Aug 19, 2015
53% Blunt Talk: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Too many of the characters and situations fail to be either recognizable or fresh, and the satire has no target. Perhaps the title refers to the show's lack of a point. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Aug 19, 2015
88% Documentary Now!: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "If the show's creators can keep coming up with fresh takes on their subjects - and their track record suggests they can - Documentary Now! will deserve a long run. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Aug 19, 2015
No Score Yet Funny or Die Presents America's Next Weatherman: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's hard to be funny when reality surpasses parody. America's Next Weatherman does a pretty good job. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Aug 7, 2015
20% Mr. Robinson: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "In fact, it's simply a bad new comedy about a hip teacher with wisecracking students and zany colleagues. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Aug 5, 2015
62% Life in Pieces: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "A sitcom doesn't have to spell everything out to be funny. But viewers have to believe that what is left unsaid or ambivalent has nonetheless been thought through. The creators of Life in Pieces don't seem to realize that it is missing parts. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Aug 3, 2015
92% Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is a rarity: a sitcom that is funnier than the movie that inspired it. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Aug 3, 2015
25% Significant Mother: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "A high-concept but low-funny sitcom about a young man whose mother starts sleeping with his lifelong best friend, Significant Mother is vulgar, tasteless and strained. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Jul 30, 2015
No Score Yet Cold Justice: Sex Crimes: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's unusual but commendable for a reality show to allow reality to drive its storytelling. " ‐ Media Life
Posted Jul 30, 2015
36% Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! (2015) "Perfectly likable characters, played by fondly remembered former stars, are dispatched bloodily. " ‐ Media Life
