Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
96% Rick and Morty: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) While the show is definitely funny, it takes Harmon's brand of humor to an adsurd new level, beyond anything even Abed could dream of. ‐

77% Gotham: Season 4 (TV, 2017-2018) In this case, it's the might of the female villains who have become something you just don't want to look away from. Hopefully, that continues for as long as Gotham is around.‐ Nerdist

7.7/10 100% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Sixteen: The Watcher in the Woods (TV Episode) Thankfully, the pace of Riverdale slowed down with this episode. Still, while some of the stories played out to perfection -- Hiram Lodge and Jughead's plots in particular -- there were some that need some serious work.‐ IGN Movies

7/10 No Score Yet Fuller House: Season 3 (TV, 2017) Fuller House is somehow getting better with age. It's still not the greatest TV you'll find out Netflix but it excels at what it knows best: family-friendly sitcom fare that's equal parts heartwarming and cheesy.‐ IGN Movies

100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 16 (TV Episode) What a long, strange trip Cooper's journey through the life and mind of Dougie Jones was but for viewers, seeing Cooper finally back to himself is more than welcome. And the long-missing FBI agent took no time in getting down to business.‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet House of Lies: Season 4 (TV, 2015) Something very strange happened at the conclusion of the House of Lies Season 4 finale - a happy ending.‐

100% The Walking Dead: Season 5 - Strangers (TV Episode) After last week's zombie action extravaganza, "Strangers" is unsurprisingly a much simpler, quieter affair, allowing the production team to catch its breath at the same time the characters are catching theirs.‐

45% Z Nation: Season 1 (TV, 2014) It's not silly, it doesn't pretend to be in on any kind of joke and, most importantly, it's not weighed down with drama like The Walking Dead can get sometimes.‐

64% Gracepoint: Season 1 (TV, 2014) As for the performances on the show, Tennant's character may have a different name, but he is essentially the same person -- and that is a good thing. In this case, "if it still works, don't fix it" rings true. ‐

92% Sons of Anarchy: Season 7 - Suits of Woe (TV Episode) Charlie Hunnam deserves praise for his portrayal of Jax during his downfall. The emotions he displayed throughout Tuesday's episode, "Suits of Woe," were enough to break anyone's heart, ranging from devastated to enraged to simply defeated.‐

83% Sons of Anarchy: Season 7 - Faith and Despondency (TV Episode) Now that the secret is out, it's going to be agonizing waiting for a week to see how Jax reacts.‐

85% Sons of Anarchy: Season 7 - What a Piece of Work Is Man (TV Episode) It may be the hardest death to hit SAMCRO since Sons of Anarchy premiered in 2008.‐

94% Sons of Anarchy: Season 7 - Some Strange Eruption (TV Episode) You had to have known it was coming, but the latest episode of Sons of Anarchy showed the impact Jax's life truly has on his kids.‐
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2015
87% Sons of Anarchy: Season 7 - Poor Little Lambs (TV Episode) Sons of Anarchy is using the deaths of women as stunts to further its plot, and it's happened so often over the years that it now feels sloppy and contrived.‐

93% Sons of Anarchy: Season 7 - Toil and Till (TV Episode) It's becoming clear that the final season of Sons of Anarchy is going to see the complete destruction of any tiny bit of goodness Jax may have had left in him. The worst part is, it's all for nothing.‐

80% Sons of Anarchy: Season 7 - Black Widower (TV Episode) The final ride has begun for Sons of Anarchy and it looks like it might be the bloodiest run of episodes yet.‐

88% Doctor Who: Season 8 (TV, 2014) This introduction of a new Doctor is easily one of the very best of the series relaunch and has to be seen as a success on all levels. It's also simply one of the better episodes in recent memory. ‐

79% Gotham: Season 1 - The Fearsome Dr. Crane (TV Episode) There's not much in the way of his family history or how Dr. Jonathan Crane came to take on the terrifying [Scarecrow] mantle. With the character's introduction on Gotham, that will finally be made clear.‐

68% Gotham: Season 1 - What the Little Bird Told Him (TV Episode) Perhaps a week off is what it takes for "Gotham" to right itself. After returning from winter break with a rather mediocre episode, the show then took another week off and came back in top form.‐

44% Gotham: Season 1 - Rogues' Gallery (TV Episode) After taking a month off, you'd think Gotham would return with an episode that actually mattered. You would be wrong.‐

73% Gotham: Season 1 - Lovecraft (TV Episode) The fall finale of Gotham, "LoveCraft," wasn't the best episode of the series yet, but it did set up a very promising second half of Season 1.‐

54% Gotham: Season 1 - Harvey Dent (TV Episode) Dent was a great addition to the show. He's idealistic but realizes sometimes you can't go by the book to get the job done.‐

68% Gotham: Season 1 - The Mask (TV Episode) There was a lot going on during the latest episode of Gotham. From a businessman fight club, to Oswald Cobblepot and Fish Mooney having a very interesting meeting. All of that pales in comparison to the crazy that is Bruce Wayne, though.‐

88% Gotham: Season 1 - Penguin's Umbrella (TV Episode) Gotham has become the show Batman fans wanted it to be. While the series has improved greatly since the pilot episode, it's also been searching for a rhythm. "Penguin's Umbrella" changed things up and became easily the strongest episode of the series yet.‐

69% Gotham: Season 1 - Spirit of the Goat (TV Episode) In short, this was a great episode of Gotham that further proved just how amazing the Cobblepot character is. He'll keep you on your toes every single week, and you'll love him for it.‐

62% Gotham: Season 1 - Viper (TV Episode) At the end of the day, Bruce just needs a friend that isn't a middle-aged man. Selina should drop by for a chat and to play video games or something.‐

60% Gotham: Season 1 - The Balloonman (TV Episode) If this week's Gotham proved anything, it's that a case-of-the-week format is not a very good fit.‐

72% Gotham: Season 1 - Selina Kyle (TV Episode) [The second] episode was probably a nice change of pace. Focusing on Selina helped to flesh out her character in a way that was impossible in the pilot. Hopefully it wasn't a one-time thing, as there's still a lot left to learn about her.‐

79% Gotham: Season 1 - Pilot (TV Episode) Now that Gotham has arrived, it's easy to see the producers went out of their way to include just about everything Batman-related they could, without the telltale cape and cowl.‐

28% Those Who Kill: Season 1 (TV, 2014) The end of the episode that sheds quite a bit of light on the direction of the series. If it can follow through on what's promised, this may be a gem for A&E.‐

88% Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor (TV, 2013) The episode answered several questions fans have been waiting to hear answered, the biggest of which is dealing with the number of regenerations the Doctor has left. ‐

83% House of Lies: Season 3 (TV, 2014) In the end the Kaan men were reunited and strong, so at least Marty has that again.‐

100% Eastbound & Down: Season 4 (TV, 2013) Get ready, because Eastbound & Down is back for one last run and it looks like a very different show.‐

42% Welcome to the Family: Season 1 (TV, 2013) It fits in with the other new entries in NBC's Thursday night comedy lineup and could easily grow into a strong show that sticks around for quite a while. That's all dependent on you giving it a chance, though.‐

89% Bob's Burgers: Season 4 (TV, 2013-2014) Pretty fun episode that had absolutely nothing to with Bob actually making burgers and a solid way to welcome back fans for a new season. ‐
