Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
A 95% The Night Of: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "A riveting mystery and a penetrating examination of how the criminal justice system dehumanizes its travelers; it's made all the richer by an embarrassment of precisely-drawn character studies. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Jul 11, 2016
100% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 10 "Equal parts fan wish-fulfillment, culmination of a million crowdsourced theories, and good old-fashioned storytelling and magnificent direction, "The Winds of Winter" did not surprise so much as spellbind. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Jun 27, 2016
98% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 9 "Never have I had to pause an episode of television to walk off the stress of watching it, but I did just that no fewer than three times during "The Battle of the Bastards," the epic ninth episode of the sixth season of Game of Thrones. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Jun 20, 2016
A- 79% Outcast: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "If you can stomach these abominations - and if you in fact relish them - you're in for a treat. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Jun 7, 2016
98% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 7 "Olenna... mounts one of the most satisfying attacks ever on Game of Thrones. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Jun 5, 2016
91% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 6 ""Blood of My Blood," the sixth episode of the sixth season of Game of Thrones lacked much of the forward momentum...but Bran's intense final download of Westerosi history as he's being hauled through the snow... opened up new insights into the future. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted May 30, 2016
100% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 5 "Tonight's aptly- (and poignantly-) titled fifth episode, in which we see the origin story of the White Walkers, and how the good-natured Winterfell stableboy Wylis became Hodor. It is brilliant and at the same time so simple - and so heartbreaking. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted May 22, 2016
100% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 4 "In Sunday's episode "The Book of the Stranger," we see the degradations suffered by Sansa Stark, Margaery Tyrell and Daenerys Targaryen forged (by actual fire, in the latter's case) into a searing determination to claim their own agency. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted May 16, 2016
92% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 1 "The sight of Cersei's face falling as Jaime's skiff approaches with Myrcella's casket is something to behold. The wonder of both the series and the books is how characters you feel to be completely unredeemable manage to still evoke sympathy. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Apr 24, 2016
72% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "Will Fear the Walking Dead simply become The Walking Dead: Left Coast? Thankfully - particularly given The Walking Dead's creatively bankrupt finale - no. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Apr 11, 2016
75% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 1 "So with the longer second season now underway (I've watched the first three episodes) and the zombie apocalypse in full effect, will Fear the Walking Dead simply become The Walking Dead: Left Coast? Thankfully... no. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Apr 11, 2016
81% The Path: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Dancy, taut as an ascetic and grimly magnetic, is the one to watch as Cal, who believes so deeply in the potential of Meyerism to heal the world one soul at a time that he will use whatever means necessary to achieve his aim. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Mar 29, 2016
72% The Catch: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "ABC's The Catch, fresh off the Shonda Rhimes assembly line, doesn't steal that marvelous line from the 1999 remake of The Thomas Crown Affair, but it nicks everything else. And that's not a complaint. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Mar 25, 2016
A- 80% 11.22.63: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The eight-part miniseries, which begins streaming Monday, immaculately recreates the era - but it's also, at its beating heart, an exquisite romance about sacrifice and the perils of optimism. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Feb 15, 2016
85% The X-Files: Season 10 Episode 4 "I found it to be very heavy-handed, and another episode where they were trying to do too much. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Feb 9, 2016
A- 97% The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's not about whether he did it or not, but about why the not guilty verdict was inevitable. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Feb 3, 2016
91% Grease: Live (2016) "Grease Live! raised the bar for choreography - which, given Hough's experience, shouldn't be surprising. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Feb 1, 2016
B+ 78% Outsiders: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The performances - a supremely shaggy David Morse as Big Foster, a mercurial leader of the clan, Joe Anderson as Asa... - are strong throughout. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Jan 26, 2016
C- 49% Lucifer: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "We're left with a show that's as cheesy as it is ridiculously improbable. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Jan 25, 2016
A 83% London Spy: Series 1 (TV, 2015) "You can get sucked in by the spycraft, but this is also a parable about queerness, and a fascinating character piece for Whishaw, as he musters all his resources to fight those who deny the love that Danny knew was true. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Jan 22, 2016
C- 59% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The prospect of jumping from era to era to stop Savage holds promise, but there isn't enough interplay between the characters to add any dimension to the early episodes. If only they could go back in time two hours and make a different show. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Jan 21, 2016
A 97% American Crime: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "Combined with Ridley's unblinkingly intimate cinematic style... this is uncomfortable television about uncomfortable topics. And we could use more of it. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger

Posted Dec 3, 2015
80% Saints & Strangers: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Focusing equally on the Pilgrims, religious dissidents seeking, if rather self-righteously, freedom, as well as some less savory passengers, and the Native American tribes of what would become Massachusetts. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Dec 3, 2015
A 93% Marvel's Jessica Jones: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Jessica Jones is more psychologically complex, acknowledging how painful it can be to flee, to be free - even when you have an iron fist. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Nov 20, 2015
A 85% House of Cards: Season 1 (TV, 2013) "The production values are lush, the pacing tight, the dialogue razor-sharp ("I love that woman," Underwood says of his wife at one point. "I love her more than sharks love blood"), the tone dark and delightfully nasty. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Nov 17, 2015
D+ 61% Flesh and Bone: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Portentous and pretentious, Starz's new prestige drama Flesh and Bone, about the cutthroat world of ballet, could have been watchable had it fully embraced the camp into which it occasionally pirouettes. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Nov 9, 2015
91% The Late Show With Stephen Colbert: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Enthusiastic, encompassing, high-energy and with healthy dose of quirk. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Nov 3, 2015
A 93% Togetherness: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The dark humor found in people behaving badly and in painfully recognizable ways - humor that hits a little too close to home. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Oct 30, 2015
C- 16% Wicked City: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Westwick, who had his fans as the slimy but strangely sexy Chuck Bass on Gossip Girl, tries but fails to project the dangerous charisma that would keep viewers tuned in. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Oct 28, 2015
13% Truth Be Told: Season 1 (TV, 2015) ""Truth Be Told" is being marketed as an edgy comedy about race, sex and other hot-button matters. In fact, it is a traditional laugh-track sitcom that lazily circles the taboos and only rarely scores a hit. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Oct 16, 2015
A 93% The Leftovers: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "This season, it's less about loss itself than how to fill the chasm. It's breathtaking. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Oct 5, 2015
B 53% Code Black: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "If you missed ER or would prefer your Grey's Anatomy without so much bed-hopping, this could be the show for you. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Sep 30, 2015
B 93% The Grinder: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Dean's goofy legal maneuverings... may strain the premise eventually, but after last season's wretched record for comedies, a sitcom that consistently amuses is worthy of acquittal. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Sep 29, 2015
C+ 62% Blood & Oil: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Blood & Oil doesn't dig deep enough. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Sep 28, 2015
C- 7% Rosewood: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Chestnut, a reliably charming presence on screens small and large, is by far the best the thing about this painfully conventional procedural that borrows aesthetically from Miami Vice... " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Sep 23, 2015
C+ 57% Limitless: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "It's relatively engaging and slickly produced, with effective visuals showcasing Eddie's new talents, but the side effect of this show may be fatal blandness. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Sep 23, 2015
B+ 63% The Muppets: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "It's The Muppets. Do you really need any other reason to tune in? " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Sep 23, 2015
C 68% Scream Queens: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Of course, coherence might not be what one looks for in a Ryan Murphy joint. But "Scream Queens' is just exhausting " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Sep 23, 2015
7% Dr. Ken: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "ABC's Dr. Ken, starring The Hangover breakout Ken Jeong, is so painful to watch it should come with a prescription for Vicodin. Or a lobotomy " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Sep 21, 2015
96% Supergirl: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Supergirl, CBS's buoyant if belated entry into the superhero sweepstakes, makes a strong case for a comic book character long considered second-string. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Sep 21, 2015
38% The Player: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "[The Player] which features Wesley Snipes as the head of Los Vegas syndicate that bets on crime... is packed with action (and Winchester's abs) as well as a cheeky, almost campy sense of humor, as if it's fully aware of how silly this all is. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Sep 21, 2015
69% Grandfathered: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The emotional beats are a bit predictable, but the comedic sensibility is refreshingly off the wall. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Sep 21, 2015
95% The Man in the High Castle: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "If you were looking for a reason to sign up for Amazon Prime, this is it. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Sep 21, 2015
96% Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It cements The CW's newfound rep as a home for quirky heroines beyond the supernatural kind " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Sep 21, 2015
A 84% Quantico: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Quantico is so taut and terrifically calibrated that it may out-Shonda ABC treasure Shonda Rhimes, the acknowledged master of sexy, twisty, expertly-paced dramas. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Sep 21, 2015
C+ 68% Blindspot: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "You can't help but feel that despite the intriguing premise and hints of a complex mythology, viewers will be left holding the bag. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Sep 21, 2015
C- 29% Minority Report: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The CGI is still pretty cool, and some chuckles are wrought from the futuristic premise (Iggy Azalea is considered a classic in 2065), but at its heart Minority Report is a by-the-book cop procedural with turgid writing and complete absence of subtlety. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
Posted Sep 21, 2015
B 62% Life in Pieces: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Life in Pieces, a wacky single-camera intergenerational family comedy, is the staid network's attempt to mimic critical darling and ratings bonanza Modern Family, with edgy (for CBS, mind you) laughs and a squishy heartwarming beat at the end. " ‐ Newark Star-Ledger
