Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
92% The Crown: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "Yes, it is still so lavishly made that it is breathtaking. But The Crown now leans toward a three-hanky weeper about marriage. It is less than it was, like the monarchy itself, and of interest to monarchy fans only. Pity. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Dec 8, 2017
88% Dark: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "What sets Dark apart and raises it to the level of truly fine drama is its quietness and beauty. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Dec 7, 2017
76% Happy!: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "In fact, there is such energy and oomph in Happy! that you begin to forgive the outrageous amount of blood and violence. " ‐ Globe and Mail

87% She's Gotta Have It: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Mostly for its breezy yet serious-minded celebration of urban life and love, it is highly recommended. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Nov 21, 2017
87% Godless: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "It's a big, brave western, culturally penetrating and entertaining in way that makes you savour scenes and dialogue, rather than anticipating the next jolt. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Nov 17, 2017

Posted Nov 14, 2017
No Score Yet Mohawk Girls: Season 5 (TV, 2017) "Mohawk Girls is a work of exceptional imaginative energy and charm, so watch it now as it takes you breezily toward the edge and the end. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Nov 14, 2017
No Score Yet Frankie Drake Mysteries: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The show breezes along and won't cause anybody to have deep thoughts. Nor will it put anybody to sleep. The sense of lightness and convivial wit is constant. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Nov 10, 2017
81% The Girlfriend Experience: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "Like the first season, the series is an uncommon, unsettling viewing experience. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Nov 3, 2017

Posted Oct 26, 2017
No Score Yet Frontline: Season 36 Episode 1 "It's not easy viewing, but it's highly recommended, this singular, searing look at a few soldiers fighting one urban battle that has such large consequences. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Oct 25, 2017

Posted Oct 13, 2017
92% Jerry Before Seinfeld (2017) "It's wry observation and it is as intensely funny as it is an intense avoidance of anything political or dark. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Oct 10, 2017
No Score Yet Return to Park Ex "It's an important program because, for all its complicated feelings, it commemorates the lives and homes of the working poor without romanticizing them. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Oct 5, 2017

Posted Sep 29, 2017
No Score Yet Bad Blood: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "At six episodes, it is far from an epic but it certainly is high-grade crime drama and great credit is due to writer/creator Simon Barry and writer Michael Konyves. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Sep 20, 2017
94% Outlander: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "It is a love story, a historical drama, a feminist manifesto, a time-travel fantasy and, mostly, a fierce celebration of the sturdiness of true love and true love's transforming power. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Sep 20, 2017
97% American Vandal: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "There is a lot of dumb humour in the series but it is far from brainless. It mocks in order to highlight how viewers are manipulated by seemingly benign techniques. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Sep 20, 2017
96% Narcos: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "Narcos is highly recommended as a terrific thriller and and a timely political parable. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Sep 19, 2017

Posted Sep 15, 2017
99% Alias Grace: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "Gadon is the engine that drives it and there is a stiffness to the six-part adaptation of the type which tends to bedevil a good deal of Canadian TV drama. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Sep 15, 2017
56% White Famous: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The show seems to manage to be lightweight and funny while taking a sharp satiric axe to a lot of showbiz cliches and lies about race. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Sep 15, 2017
61% Ten Days in the Valley: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "At first, the series has the air and style of a strong but conventional mystery but then it gets tangled, truly chilling and, indeed, thoughtful, as the two worlds - cop-show entertainment and motherhood - become horribly entangled. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Sep 15, 2017
97% The Vietnam War: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "The overriding emotion that emanates from it is despair; but how that despair came into being is the cautionary tale that is the whole point. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Sep 15, 2017
72% American Horror Story: Cult (TV, 2017) "No jerk, pro-Trump or anti-Trump, is left untouched in this often unhinged but heartening act of fevered and fun artistry. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Sep 5, 2017
80% White Gold: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "If British TV of a certain era and comedic style is your bag, you will adore this strange and often savage show. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Aug 30, 2017

Posted Aug 29, 2017
91% Icarus (2017) "If you want insight into cheating in sports and the complicated reasons why it happens over and over, Icarus will open your eyes as never before. It is essential viewing for anyone interested in athletics or competitive sports of any type. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Aug 28, 2017
No Score Yet 21 Thunder: Season 1 "21 Thunder manages to out-manoeuvre all the possible pitfalls by being about soccer and mainly not about big stars and crucial games, but about young players on the cusp of being full-time professionals and potential legends. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Aug 21, 2017
76% Atypical: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Atypical falls somewhere between a smart network show and a provocative cable series. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Aug 18, 2017
38% Intelligence: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "Camille Sullivan is superb as Jimmy's unglued ex-wife Francine, and Cassini is quietly majestic as Jimmy's right-hand man, the one who really has to hold everything together in this dangerously real world. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Aug 14, 2017
64% Ozark: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "There is a lot of entertainment in Ozark, but the feel of it is, at bottom, phony. It does not have the depth and authenticity of drama that grew organically from one writer's vision. It just doesn't. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jul 24, 2017
86% Room 104: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The series is an amazing achievement, a testament to the power of storytelling even when confined to an extremely limited space. " ‐ Globe and Mail

60% Midnight, Texas: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "It's so ridiculously bad it's barely worth telling you about. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jul 24, 2017
100% Insecure: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "It beggars description, offers no easy answers and, while it can be truly funny, it also feels subversive. Just watch it and see -- this often mesmerizing exploration of human fragility, corrosive identity politics and love. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jul 21, 2017
23% Friends From College: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "What we have here is a crime against comedy. Avoid it at all costs. Maybe you enjoy Netflix because there are no commercials? Well there are 30-second commercials for pain-reliever with more substance and laughs than this thing. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jul 12, 2017
56% Salvation: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Check out the new doomsday sci-fi summer drama starting on Wednesday. It's loads of fun. Loads! Space stuff, car chases, conspiracy plots, tense Pentagon meetings and hanky-panky. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jul 11, 2017
100% The Defiant Ones: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "It's a wild, vivid, perceptive ride into a world as glamorous as it is ugly. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jul 10, 2017
24% Gypsy: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Wish I could tell you Gypsy is a great thriller worth binge-watching on a summer weekend. It's not that, at all, unless you are obsessed with therapy. It's too slow. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jun 29, 2017
94% GLOW: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "It's highly recommended. Netflix is a mess, GLOW is a bit messy, but a very appealing kind of mess. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jun 26, 2017
86% Cardinal: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Make a point of seeing it. You'll be stuck to it. Cardinal is a gripping, superbly made crime drama. At times breathtaking, it is so good it is landmark Canadian TV. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jun 19, 2017
93% Orphan Black: Season 5 (TV, 2017) "The plot makes some sense in the final season, but it's trying too hard, too late. " ‐ Globe and Mail

Posted Jun 2, 2017
51% I'm Dying Up Here: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "I'm Dying Up Here has a great, highly recommended first hour. After that, it has moments of fun and insight, but a lot of sourness that isn't funny at all. You had to be there. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Jun 2, 2017
100% Sled Dogs (2017) "You can make up your own mind about whether what's shown is terrible cruelty or simply pragmatism. What's certain is you will never feel quite as cozy and romantic about travelling by dog sled ever again. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted May 30, 2017
72% The Wizard of Lies (2017) "At the end, there is a payoff of sorts for the viewer. " ‐ Globe and Mail
