PEN15: Season 2

100%

Critic Consensus: An excellent showcase for Maya Erskine, Anna Konkle, and their well-cast classmates, PEN15's sophomore season goes deeper into the nuances of middle school life without losing any of its cringey charm.

The Good Lord Bird: Season 1

100%

Critic Consensus: Ethan Hawke dazzles in The Good Lord Bird, an epically irreverent adaptation that does right by its source material's good word.

The Boys: Season 2

97%

Critic Consensus: The Boys comes out swinging in a superb second season that digs deeper into its complicated characters and ups the action ante without pulling any of its socially critical punches.

Julie and the Phantoms: Season 1

92%

Critic Consensus: With catchy tunes and just the right amount of ghost jokes, Julie and the Phantoms is a fun, feel-good show that proves a perfect showcase for newcomer Madison Reyes.

Teenage Bounty Hunters: Season 1

92%

Critic Consensus: Teenage Bounty Hunters has snappy one-liners and style to spare, and though its peculiar premise at times fizzles, it's held together by Maddie Phillips and Anjelica Bette Fellini's killer chemistry.

The Umbrella Academy: Season 2

90%

Critic Consensus: Proof that time can heal almost all wounds, The Umbrella Academy's exhilarating second season lightens its tonal load without losing its emotional core, giving the super siblings room to grow while doubling down on the time traveling fun.

Lovecraft Country: Season 1

90%

Critic Consensus: Anchored by Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Jonathan Majors' heroic performances, Misha Green's Lovecraft Country is a thrilling take on Lovecraftian lore that proves the Elder Gods aren't the only thing that goes bump in the cosmos.

Ted Lasso: Season 1

86%

Critic Consensus: Warm and winsome, if not particularly hilarious, Ted Lasso fleshes out its promo premise with unrelenting optimism and a charming turn from Jason Sudeikis.

We Are Who We Are: Season 1

86%

Critic Consensus: We Are Who We Are doesn't move mountains, but by focusing on the little details and allowing its central teens to just be, Luca Guadagnino creates small-screen poetry.

The Vow: Season 1

83%

Critic Consensus: Though The Vow's scope at times exceeds its reach, its empathetic approach to unpacking NXIVM's manipulations and the consequences therein make for necessary, difficult viewing.

Pure: Season 1

80%

Critic Consensus: Pure sidesteps the seedy pratfalls of its ribald premise to instead compassionately explore the complications of compulsion, shame, and struggling to make sense of oneself.

Fargo: Season 4

77%

Critic Consensus: Though Fargo's ambitious fourth season struggles to maintain momentum, fine performances and a change of scenery make for an engaging -- if uneven -- departure from the series' norm.

Raised by Wolves: Season 1

77%

Critic Consensus: Bristling with imagination and otherworldly imagery, Raised by Wolves is a bloody exploration of artificial intelligence and religious belief that will stimulate the eye and mind -- if not the heart.

The Third Day: Miniseries

76%

Critic Consensus: With a sufficiently arresting atmosphere and captivating performances from stars Jude Law and Naomie Harris, The Third Day is an intriguing - if overly familiar - addition to the folk-horror genre.

Woke: Season 1

76%

Critic Consensus: Though Woke's first season doesn't quite know what it wants to say about racism in America, its solid ensemble - led by a well-cast Lamorne Morris - and some surreal silliness make it a messy conversation worth watching.

Noughts + Crosses: Season 1

73%

Critic Consensus: Though handsomely produced and full of charming performances, Noughts + Crosses fails to capture the scope of its source material, leaving little room for nuance in its revisionist history.
