T-Meter Title | Year
B 83% Living With Yourself: Season 1 (TV, 2019) I'm not sure all of this would work nearly as well without Rudd at its center, honestly, but his innate charm helps hold those thin narrative strands together. - TV Line EDIT

B 87% Evil: Season 1 (TV, 2019) The smart, penetrating writing from The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King takes an unflinching look at the nature of evil and deftly probes the tension between faith and science. - TV Line EDIT

B+ 56% The Politician: Season 1 (TV, 2019) The Politician provides plenty of laughs and on-target jabs at our current political moment - but it's the battered yet still-beating heart found in Platt's performance that ultimately has us pulling the lever for this one. - TV Line EDIT

100% A Black Lady Sketch Show: Season 1 (TV, 2019) This isn't just a win for representation: A Black Lady Sketch Show is damn hilarious, too, taking insightful swipes at the ridiculousness of modern life, wowing us with big-budget genre parodies and serving up a host of delightful celebrity cameos to boot - TV Line EDIT

44% Four Weddings and a Funeral: Season 1 (TV, 2019) There's nothing incredibly groundbreaking and innovative about any of this... but there doesn't really need to be. It's a cute, lighthearted throwback that goes down easy in an era of tough-to-watch dramas. - TV Line EDIT

No Score Yet Muppets Tonight: Season 1 (TV, 0-1998) Looking back through old YouTube clips, Muppets Tonight is actually pretty enjoyable. Sure, a lot of its references are dated, but the timeless humor and heart shine through. - Yahoo.com EDIT

100% Legion: Season 3 - Chapter 20 (TV Episode) FX's Legion got trippier than ever in its third and final season premiere, with David leading a far-out cult of hippies. - TV Line EDIT

B+ 83% Euphoria: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Euphoria is admittedly better at establishing a distinctive mood and style than at telling a story, at least early on... But Euphoria's exhilarating style and achingly incisive observations more than make up for any storytelling flaws it might have. - TV Line EDIT

87% Big Little Lies: Season 2 (TV, 2017) Through it all, the signature Big Little Lies approach is in full effect: sharply observed, endlessly patient, emotionally true. - TV Line EDIT

A- 100% Tuca & Bertie: Season 1 (TV, 2019) [It's] a vibrantly colorful, delightfully surreal animated comedy that mashes up the best bits of those two shows with a playful, psychedelic edge. - TV Line EDIT

A- 68% Black Mirror: Season 5 - Smithereens (TV Episode) It's a gripping, old-fashioned thriller with shades of Taxi Driver that doubles as a vicious commentary on our crippling tech addiction, with sharp bursts of dark humor throughout. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2019
C- 50% Black Mirror: Season 5 - Rachel, Jack and Ashley, Too (TV Episode) It gestures in the direction of some interesting points about exploiting a celebrity's likeness, but most of its insights are ultimately trite, and the final act takes some truly ridiculous turns that feel very un-Black Mirror. - TV Line EDIT

B 73% Black Mirror: Season 5 - Striking Vipers (TV Episode) Whoo boy... this one is going to make some gamer dudes very uncomfortable. - TV Line EDIT

D 7% L.A.'s Finest: Season 1 (TV, 2019) A loud, dumb mess of a cop drama, loaded up with corny punchlines and incoherent plotting. So if you don't have the ability to watch it... well, consider yourself lucky. - TV Line EDIT

82% Riverdale: Season 3 - Chapter Fifty-One: BIG FUN (TV Episode) The Riverdale kids took to the stage again for a school production of Heathers: The Musical - and it might be the most fun we've ever seen them have? (Maybe they should do more than one of these a year.) - TV Line EDIT

82% Star Trek: Discovery: Season 2 (TV, 2017) Tilly, meanwhile, was just as delightful as always... Stamets might want her to "say fewer things," but I don't! - TV Line EDIT

B- 92% Shrill: Season 1 (TV, 2019) If the end result is a bit standard-issue indie comedy, the sheer fact that Shrill allows Annie to be herself, without trying to transform her, is worth celebrating. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 12, 2019
A- 94% What We Do in the Shadows: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Thanks to Clement and Waititi's expert guidance, Shadows' early episodes are chock full of quotable one-liners and majestically silly moments. - TV Line EDIT

C- 50% Turn Up Charlie: Season 1 (TV, 2019) [It's] a thoroughly mild, easily digestible sitcom that unfortunately dips into Disney Channel levels of saccharine too often to merit a recommendation - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2019
46% The Last Tycoon: Season 1 (TV, 2016-2017) The Last Tycoon has all the glamorous trappings of old Hollywood: Amazon clearly threw lots of money at the screen, with sumptuous costumes by Mad Men designer Janie Bryant. But the joy is missing. - TV Line EDIT

55% Black Monday: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Black Monday already feels like one of those shows where the acting and writing are so sharp that even if an individual episode is subpar, it'll still have two or three priceless one-liners to tide us over. - TV Line EDIT

91% The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 2 (TV, 2017) The Season 2... begins on an exhilarating note. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2018
88% Jersey Shore Family Vacation: Season 1 (TV, 2018) A rare reality series where people are actually allowed to change and evolve, a reliable source of profoundly stupid hi-jinks, and a big-hearted tribute to family and friendship. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 13, 2018
B 89% Escape at Dannemora: Miniseries (TV, 2018) Escape at Dannemora rises above the typical prison-break story with humane characterization and excellent acting, especially from Patricia Arquette. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 19, 2018
D 71% Dirty John: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Britton and her talented co-stars are wasted here on a warmed-over Lifetime movie masquerading as a prestige TV miniseries - one that's, sadly, not even trashy enough to qualify as a guilty pleasure. - TV Line EDIT

86% Riverdale: Season 3 - Chapter Thirty-Eight: As Above, So Below (TV Episode) Riverdale keeps coming up with fresh ways to get Archie to take his shirt off. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 25, 2018
B+ 98% Homecoming: Season 1 (TV, 2018) It is an awfully good mystery, after all, with each episode lasting just long enough and teasing us just enough to keep us hooked. It's so good, in fact, maybe it'll convince Roberts to make this TV thing a full-time gig. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2018
B+ 91% Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 1 (TV, 2018) Its intoxicating mix of supernatural thrills and deadpan one-liners approaches the heights of Buffy the Vampire Slayer... and I realize that's high praise indeed. - TV Line EDIT

95% Riverdale: Season 3 - Chapter Thirty-Six: Labor Day (TV Episode) A falsely accused Archie learned his fate as Riverdale returned for Season 3... but really, that was just the tip of the WTF iceberg. - TV Line EDIT

100% Better Call Saul: Season 4 - Wiedersehen (TV Episode) Kind of heartbreaking to see Kim excitedly make a "World's Greatest Lawyer Again" travel mug for Jimmy, along with buying him a shiny new legal briefcase, in anticipation of him getting reinstated. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 4, 2018
A- 94% Sorry for Your Loss: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Sorry for Your Loss is like a beautifully written sad song: You're not always in the right mood to listen to it... but when you are, it can reach you in places that nothing else can. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 17, 2018
B- 53% Happy Together: Season 1 (TV, 2018) The jokes could use some polishing, and the concept could easily grow old in a hurry, but the trio of Wayans, Stevens West and Mallard nudge this one a solid notch above your average network sitcom. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2018
D 24% The Neighborhood: Season 1 (TV, 2018) A quality cast does its best, but can't salvage the cringe-worthy dialogue and paper-thin characterizations. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2018
27% Camping: Season 1 (TV, 2018) It's a colossal waste of everyone's time and talent. Cringe humor without the humor is just cringing. - TV Line EDIT

B+ 75% Single Parents: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Genuinely funny network sitcoms are nearing extinction these days, so let's make sure this one sticks around to see Season 2, huh? - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2018
C+ 65% The Cool Kids: Season 1 (TV, 2018) I'm hoping the mediocre writing can eventually rise to meet the level of the cast, but for now, there are worse ways to spend your Friday nights than with this cozy throwback. - TV Line EDIT

45% Murphy Brown: Season 11 (TV, 1988) [Season 11] isn't exactly subtle about its political leanings. - TV Line EDIT

C 82% The Kids Are Alright: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Michael Cudlitz has a few nice moments as gruff but tenderhearted dad Mike, but ultimately, the show isn't funny or heartwarming enough to overcome how familiar it feels. - TV Line EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 24, 2018
D 31% I Feel Bad: Season 1 (TV, 2018) When it's not burying us in an avalanche of creaky sitcom clichés, it's creeping us out with inappropriate sex jokes. ... All I could think while watching is: They cancelled Great News for this?? - TV Line EDIT
