T-Meter Title | Year
4/5 83% Saturday Night Live: Season 45 - Phoebe Waller-Bridge; Taylor Swift (TV Episode) We have a feeling this won't be PWB's last appearance on SNL - she aced it. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

3/5 89% GLOW: Season 3 (TV, 2017) GLOW has still got just enough shine to hold our interest... but since the change of scene card has already been played just three seasons in, we're not sure if the fun and drama can be sustained for another run. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

3/5 97% Orange Is the New Black: Season 7 (TV, 2013) That's one of the problems with OITNB - there are so many characters with so many varied issues that we can be left feeling a little short-changed. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 82% Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Laura Linney perfectly reprises her role of Mary Ann, once our straitlaced guide into this hedonistic world as the wide-eyed new arrival who gets sucked into life in San Francisco - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 89% Toast of London: Season 3 (TV, 2012-2015) Sometimes when cult comedies become successful, they lose their charm. Let's hope that big name cameos don't detract from Toast of London's weird appeal. So far, so funny. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet W1A: Season 2 (TV, 2014-2017) Four episodes might seem too short for the second series of a Bafta-winning comedy, but on reflection it feels right - any more exposure to these insufferable characters and we might find ourselves picking up their vile mannerisms. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

3/5 69% Upstart Crow: Season 1 (TV, 2016-2018) The show is dotted with funny lines and nobody could play the pompous but downtrodden Bard as well as Mitchell. The trouble is, the knowing references have worn off already, making it more like a risqué version of Horrible Histories than an adult sitcom. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 100% Billy Connolly: Made in Scotland: Miniseries (TV, 2018) It's funny how someone who was once regarded as so progressive and outrageous is now a national treasure with a knighthood. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

91% The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 2 (TV, 2017) On the whole, it's a fast, funny, romp of a show, but with a huge heart. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

100% Being Human: Series 4 (TV, 2009-2013) I got sucked in -- clearly so sucked in that I'm inadvertently making vampire puns -- to the complex plot. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 91% Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 1 (TV, 2018) Those of us who enjoyed the perkier version from our youth will tune in out of curiosity, while a new generation of Netflix junkies can take this sexier, more sinister version at face value. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 88% Love, Lies & Records: Season 1 (TV, 2017) [Kate's] dramas are basically the televisual equivalent of a deliciously trashy real-life magazine with multiple far-fetched headlines that somehow suck you in. And I definitely mean that as a compliment. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 94% GLOW: Season 1 (TV, 2017) One of the best things about GLOW is the sheer Eighties-ness of it all -- it's a sensory explosion of synth-heavy tunes, neon lights, high-cut leotards, hairspray... and even a robot which dispenses cocaine. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 71% Orange Is the New Black: Season 5 (TV, 2013) This season feels like a particularly well-written horror film, with so many increasingly macabre twists and turns that OITNB is starting to make Breaking Bad look like Teletubbies. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 69% Jean-Claude Van Johnson: Season 1 (TV, 2016-2017) JC is a likeable hero to root for who, despite his cocky exterior, is surprisingly happy to mock his own career in the name of comedy. Ironically, a show about being a washed-up actor could well reignite the popularity of its real-life star. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

No Score Yet The Musketeers: Season 3 (TV, 2014-2015) The show already feels past its sell-by date; just a bunch of silly little boys running around haplessly fighting for no discernible reason. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

4/5 94% Orange Is the New Black: Season 4 (TV, 2013) Other seasons of OITNB have started slowly, but this one's a banger from the outset and we're delighted and relieved that the drama shows no signs of letting up. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT

2/5 33% Tatau: Season 1 (TV, 2015) We've all endured tedious tales of exotic high jinks from colleagues returning from their travels, dripping in henna tattoos and shark tooth necklaces, but someone at the BBC seemingly can't get enough of this stuff. - Daily Telegraph (UK) EDIT
