63% The Morning Show: Season 1 (TV, 2019) In this premiere, The Morning Show comes off a bit like a real morning show: compulsively watchable, polished as hell, but maybe a little self-important about what it's doing. But for now, perhaps the fun is in the self-importance. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

No Score Yet The Sing-off: Season 5 (TV, 2009-2014) The Sing-Off returned as a one-night, two-hour holiday special. And even at just two hours-half the length of a typical singing show's weekly allotment-I stand by this being the best happiest show on television. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

100% The Sing-off: Season 4 (TV, 2009-2014) The Sing-Off finale was everything I needed it to be and, yes, I did need it to be something. I needed it to be something my whole family could watch together while I'm home for the holidays. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

56% Big Little Lies: Season 2 - I Want to Know (TV Episode) Knowing that the Monterey Five decided to just show up -- to face their lie, and face it together -- can provide some much needed closure for such a big event in our lives. - Decider EDIT

79% Big Little Lies: Season 2 - The Bad Mother (TV Episode) Mary Louise officially transitioned from a loathsome villain into an utterly soulless horror-movie monster -- and she barely spoke more than a line all episode. - Decider EDIT

94% Big Little Lies: Season 2 - Kill Me (TV Episode) This was just an especially emotional episode of Big Little Lies. Like...all the emotions. - Decider EDIT

95% Big Little Lies: Season 2 - She Knows (TV Episode) The women of Big Little Lies are not doing very well. In fact, things were going so badly on this week's episode, She Knows, that you could cut the tension with a pumpkin-carving knife. - Decider EDIT

100% Big Little Lies: Season 2 - The End of the World (TV Episode) The big secret takes a bit of a back seat as these women deal with the sun-dappled shambles of their personal lives, but the major reveal in episode 3 is that no one has been keeping this big secret especially well. - Decider EDIT

100% Big Little Lies: Season 2 - Tell Tale Hearts (TV Episode) Of course performances aren't the only explosive materials popping off in Tell-Tale Hearts. We're talking big little secrets, people. - Decider EDIT

100% Big Little Lies: Season 2 - What Have They Done? (TV Episode) Thus far, [Meryl] Streep, playing Perry's mother Mary Louise, is bringing a perfectly unnerving energy; it's not cruel, it's not violent, it's not malicious -- it's simply unpredictable. - Decider EDIT

100% The Amazing Race: Season 26 (TV, 2013-2015) This season has been a weird one, but it's certainly been interesting. I haven't quite decided what it means that the Final 3 teams were all Blind Date couples, but I know that I wouldn't be opposed to a season that brought strangers together again. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

No Score Yet The Amazing Race: Season 27 (TV, 2013-2015) I was pleased to find that I actually ended up really enjoying this finale, mostly because it gave me a surprising amount of closure on what had amounted to a pretty odd season of The Amazing Race. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

A- 100% The Blacklist: Season 6 (TV, 2013) Where previous seasons may have asked us to bring something back from the long and winding serialization of Red-and-Lizzie, the premiere of season 6-is working on more of a minute-by-minute recall time. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

27% Utopia: Season 1 (TV, 2014) For a show about building a new society, a lot of the details being worked out in Utopia don't receive much focus. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

B 60% The Blacklist: Redemption: Season 1 (TV, 2017) We've arrived at a pretty satisfying endpoint that could potentially propel us into more, hopefully better, seasons. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

No Score Yet Glee: Season 5 - The Untitled Rachel Berry Project (TV Episode) The first 50 minutes gave us very little indication as to what those future-things could really be .In that way, it actually felt much more like a series finale, and it would have been a logical one. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

B+ 100% The Blacklist: Season 5 (TV, 2013) The Blacklist has returned for its 5th season, and finally, the paternal cat is out of the convoluted, hole-riddled, sphinx-guarded parentage-bag...and everything is surprisingly chummy post-reveal! - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

67% Teen Wolf: Season 4 (TV, 2011-2017) If you were unhappy with the answers provided for the story lines that shaped the season...well, that went out the window when Peter and Meredith split a hospital room. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

B- 63% Kevin (Probably) Saves the World: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) Kevin (Probably) Saves the World isn't perfect, but as it waffles between natural charisma and a slightly forced concept, it's better than it could be. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

B+ 90% The Blacklist: Season 4 (TV, 2013) Well, that's what we would call sticking the landing. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

A 100% Bates Motel: Season 5 (TV, 2013-2017) In its final season, Bates Motel proved over and over again that it is one of the few series on television that can simultaneously subvert predictions, exceed expectations and make every shocking twist feel completely earned. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

82% The Blacklist: Season 2 (TV, 2013) Perhaps the most exciting aspect of this premiere ... is that while Red was as engaging and creepy-charming as ever, the tone didn't waver when he was away from the action. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

100% Zoo: Season 2 (TV, 2015-2017) Oh, how I've missed this show - so ridiculous; so confusing; so many elephants charging (and keeping pace with) luxury aircrafts. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT
