Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
94% This Is Us: Season 2 Episode 18 "It was beautifully acted and emotionally satisfying, but it also deliberately (and frustratingly) kept things from the audience in order to up the melodrama and create new mysteries. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 14, 2018
2/4 58% Rise: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "... Rise feels like a rehash, a collection of stories we've already seen, presented with a slightly darker palette. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 13, 2018
2/4 No Score Yet Roseanne: Season 10 (TV, 2018) "There are moments in the opener when it feels like the adult cast is phoning it in. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 9, 2018
67% Champions: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Despite strong talent behind it, the comedy is cringeworthy and tedious. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 8, 2018
89% Marvel's Jessica Jones: Season 2 (TV, 2018) "... Ritter remains exceptional in the role, and her performance is worth coming back for. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 8, 2018
20% Sundays With Alec Baldwin: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Baldwin tries his level best, but the show is too slight to really click. It just might not be his Sunday. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 7, 2018
2.5/4 37% Life Sentence: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "The relentless cheer can be annoying, but Hale's charms, and the appeal of the wider cast mostly smooths it over. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 7, 2018
100% iZombie: Season 4 (TV, 2018) "iZombie entered this season while still retaining its signature comedic style (that zombie defense contractor is named Fillmore Graves, get it?) and strong writing. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 2, 2018
68% McMafia: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "The premiere is a little slow to start, but once all the pieces are in place and the action picks up, the episode sucks you in and kicks off a solid crime drama. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 1, 2018
100% Atlanta: Robbin' Season (TV, 2018) "The second season is a worthy follow-up to the first, a tighter story with fewer standalone episodes, which is neither good nor bad, just a different and interesting path. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Mar 1, 2018
80% Corporate: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "A spiritual successor to 1999 cult film Office Space, Corporate is a bleak and absurdist workplace comedy with Mr. Robot's life-outlook and color palette and 30 Rock's sense of humor. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 27, 2018
3.5/4 95% The Looming Tower: Miniseries (TV, 2018) "The sharply written and acted series keeps you hooked, even though you know the story ends horrifically. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 27, 2018
84% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 9 "Sunday's midseason premiere was, essentially, a 56-minute exercise in thumb-twiddling and time-wasting. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 26, 2018
3/4 61% Good Girls: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "From its opening scene, Good Girls is just a lot of fun. The series doesn't break new ground, yet it feels fresh, as if someone gave a good hard shake to the prevalent male antihero narrative and made it interesting again. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 23, 2018
2/4 76% Seven Seconds: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "... while it tries to make big statements about police and race relations in America, it gets lost in a sea of unlikable characters and predictable plotlines. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 22, 2018
100% Chris Rock: Tamborine (2018) "Tamborine is rife with political humor and pointed observations on race in Rock's usual style, but the special is mostly about Rock himself, a self-reflective piece in which he owns up to his mistakes. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 14, 2018
25% Here and Now: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Here and Now is as bland and confusing as its title suggests. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 8, 2018
2/4 65% Altered Carbon: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Carbon also is often gratuitously violent and sexual, leaning on its gore and nudity as filler when the story drags. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Feb 1, 2018
2/4 61% A.P. Bio: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Bio sits awkwardly between conventional and weird: It's neither straightforward or offbeat enough to strike a consistent tone. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 31, 2018
100% One Day at a Time: Season 2 (TV, 2018) "With exceptional performances from the legendary Rita Moreno (as matriarch Lydia) and Justina Machado (as outgoing single-mom Penelope), every episode is an absolute joy. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 26, 2018
2.5/4 84% Mosaic: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Mosaic is a decent murder mystery. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 26, 2018
2/4 32% Our Cartoon President: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Overall, Cartoon comes off as slight, dated and unsustainable. Watching one episode is enough to get the point. Watching nine more feels unnecessary. Tuning into Colbert's monologue seems more fun. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 26, 2018
1.5/4 59% The Resident: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Self-important, predictable and inconsistent, the series delivers bland stories about terrible people playing God just because they can. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 19, 2018
3/4 63% The Alienist: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "There's no shortage of serial killer dramas, and if The Alienist feels familiar, it makes up for it by presenting its story in a striking package. And you won't want to look away. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 19, 2018
3/4 98% Black Lightning: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Its themes are a bit heavy for a superhero show, but it still features fun, dazzling action sequences. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 16, 2018
55% Alone Together: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Unfortunately, their vapid obsession with looking and being perfect quickly grows tiresome in the premiere, which has few laughs. Still, while the tone may be a little grating, the pair has good chemistry and timing. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 12, 2018
79% My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "The episode concludes with Obama and Letterman staging themselves walking offstage together... It's a sweet moment that serves as a reminder why it's nice but not vital to have Letterman back on our screens. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 12, 2018
3/4 66% Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Electric Dreams works because there's a fascinating nugget of insight about humanity in every episode, even if they don't always succeed. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 11, 2018
1.5/4 17% The Four: Battle for Stardom: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "The biggest drawback to the frenzied structure is that it's hard to connect with any contestant, so its much-hyped battles have no emotional weight. The judges are unafraid to dole out harsh criticism, but in this context it feels kind of pointless. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 8, 2018
3/4 98% The End of the F***ing World: Series 1 (TV, 2018) "... it's here, it's weird, and it ends up being really wonderful. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 4, 2018
3.5/4 85% The Chi: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "... superb new drama... " ‐ USA Today
Posted Jan 4, 2018
100% Planet Earth II: Miniseries (TV, 2017) ""Cities," which follows groups of animals that have adapted to live in dense metropolises, is as beautifully filmed and edifying as the rest of the Planet Earth episodes, but with a more powerful ending than usual. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Dec 27, 2017
1.5/4 46% A Christmas Story Live! "Although the cast is quite appealing and the show well staged (with hardly a hiccup or blooper), it couldn't liven up the flat material. A three-hour runtime made it a slog, and the musical was overstuffed with songs. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Dec 17, 2017
2.5/4 93% Black Mirror: Season 4 (TV, 2016-2017) "... Black Mirror is decidedly mixed, managing occasionally to find brilliance but most often dwelling in the mediocre. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Dec 14, 2017
3/4 93% The Crown: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "It may be a fairy tale with the cracks showing, but it's still a fairy tale. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Dec 7, 2017
3/4 100% Psych: The Movie "... like visiting an old friend, it's a little awkward at times, but overall it's an absolute joy and quintessentially the Psych we know and love. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Dec 6, 2017
79% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 7 "As frustrating as the character and his speaking pattern can be, actor Josh McDermitt turned in great work this week as Eugene slowly breaks down over the course of the episode. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Dec 3, 2017
3/4 96% The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "It's hard to take your eyes off of Midge Maisel when she takes the stage. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 29, 2017
33% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 6 "Even the best... of the bunch make the worst and most ill-advised decisions, and it's exasperating to watch. Coupled with the wheel-spinning of this slow episode, "The King, the Widow, and Rick" ended up being a dull and frustrating outing for TWD. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 26, 2017
3.5/4 88% She's Gotta Have It: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Pop culture is cluttered with rehashes, but maybe this is just the one that well, we gotta have. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 22, 2017
3/4 88% Godless: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "It's an operatic, juicy drama that thrives by earnestly embracing the best -and side-stepping the worst - Western tropes. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 21, 2017
3/4 82% Marvel's Runaways: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) " It's a cheeky, splashy and addictive coming-of-age adventure that feels at once fresh and comfortingly familiar. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 20, 2017
83% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 5 "Although The Walking Dead has introduced and killed off its fair share of characters over the past eight years, it just can't make Negan and his minions either interesting or remotely sympathetic. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 19, 2017
100% The Vampire Diaries: Season 8 (TV, 2016-2017) "Either way, it's the happy ending they've always wanted. Excuse us, we'll be over in the corner, sobbing. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 16, 2017
1.5/4 63% Marvel's The Punisher: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Unfortunately, the series is mostly a dull, superficial shoot-em-up. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 16, 2017
3/4 79% Future Man: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "It all comes together as a light and giddy comedy that lovingly pokes fun at an often self-serious genre. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 13, 2017
88% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 4 "Khary Payton does great work for the whole hour and is especially affecting at the moment Ezekiel has given up his Shakespearean dialect for slang out of pure terror and guilt. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 12, 2017
52% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 3 "Hopefully, the cliffhanger ending means next week's episode will move on because presenting the 'all out war' from this perspective isn't working out too well so far. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 6, 2017
2.5/4 75% SMILF: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "What SMILF does well, it does really well. There are signs of a good series, with the potential to improve. " ‐ USA Today
Posted Nov 2, 2017
3.5/4 99% Alias Grace: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "It plays with viewers' expectations about PBS Masterpiece-style television. " ‐ USA Today
