T-Meter Title | Year
80% Man Down: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2017) Any show which can come up with a kids' school nativity called Scrooge 3000 is all right in my book. - Independent (UK) EDIT

100% King of the Hill: Season 13 (TV, 1997-2010) Not a proud way to go, but 12 years was an excellent run for a tender, funny portrayal of middle America - and men who love their lawnmowers almost as much as their families. - Guardian EDIT

No Score Yet The Inbetweeners: Series 2 (TV, 2008-2010) Even the kids of the Inbetweeners may be a bit too self-referential for bumbling teens. Still - it's very funny. - Guardian EDIT

77% The Inbetweeners: Series 1 (TV, 2008-2010) As The Inbetweeners proves being a teenager in suburbia may be intolerable, but ultimately it's usually quite an enlightening and fulfilling experience - not to mention a funny one. - Guardian EDIT

97% Mindhunter: Season 1 (TV, 2017) The "Co-ed Killer" is played terrifyingly by the previously unknown Cameron Britton. We watch Ford and Kemper initially dance around each other before establishing a curious bond. - Guardian EDIT

98% Wolf Hall: Series 1 (TV, 2015) This opener might have proved puzzling, even though Straughan's dialogue is fairly surgical. The House of Cards-like scheming of Cromwell, Wolsey, Stephen Gardiner and the Duke of Norfolk is testy but not yet captivating. - Independent (UK) EDIT

67% Derek: Season 2 (TV, 2013-2015) There's certainly a good show here... Where better to mine pathos than a financially struggling old people's home? - Independent (UK) EDIT

91% Mad Men: Season 7 - Person to Person (TV Episode) It was almost inevitable that however Mad Men ended - unless it had concluded with Don jumping to his death through his office window - the final scenes would provoke instant squabbling. And so it proved. - Guardian EDIT

96% Mad Men: Season 7 - The Milk and Honey Route (TV Episode) If the tragedy of Don is that he can't change, the triumph of Pete is that he has. - Guardian EDIT

97% Mad Men: Season 7 - Lost Horizon (TV Episode) After Sterling Cooper ceased to exist after being swallowed last week by its parent company, McCann, we're beginning to see our Mad Men and Women go their separate ways. This really is the end. - Guardian EDIT

97% Mad Men: Season 7 - Time & Life (TV Episode) The plan to round up some business and ship away seemed sound. As Roger pointed out, they'd be saving the company millions of dollars' worth of contracts, but you had a sense it was doomed to failure. - Guardian EDIT

59% Mad Men: Season 7 - New Business (TV Episode) This sequence was carried out at a cerebral, almost dawdling pace. But, if you're watching Mad Men for blood-rushing edits, you've come to the wrong show. - Guardian EDIT

94% Mad Men: Season 7 - Severance (TV Episode) Dreams, death, desire and despair mingle in this hallucinatory episode as Mad Men hits the final straight - the 70s. - Guardian EDIT

89% Mad Men: Season 7 (TV, 2007-2015) One of Weiner's greatest achievements is to make something as banal as a firm pitching to advertise fast food (or a camera, or a cigarette, or whatever), seem worthy of the viewers' tears and devotion. - Independent (UK) EDIT

100% Veep: Season 3 (TV, 2012) As ever, it's Veep's one-liners that are the real winners. - Independent (UK) EDIT

58% Episodes (US): Season 3 (TV, 2011-2017) It's not bad, but sorry, Matt, we're probably best with those interminable Friends repeats... - Independent (UK) EDIT
