Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
A- 78% Perry Mason: Season 1 (TV, 2020) HBO's reboot somehow feels vitally current, with richly drawn characters, gorgeous visuals, a genuinely compelling central mystery and another terrific lead performance from star Matthew Rhys.‐ TV Line

37% Too Hot to Handle: Season 1 (TV, 2020) Too Hot has a killer premise, to be sure, but the show managed to fumble it away with a number of ill-advised production choices. ‐ TV Line

C 58% Hollywood: Season 1 (TV, 2020) This sprawling, ambitious look at the actors, producers and studio executives that created the film industry's Golden Age sets out to rewrite history, but it gets too bogged down in overwrought sentiment to reach its lofty ambitions.‐ TV Line

B 67% The Eddy: Season 1 (TV, 2020) The four episodes I've seen have some narrative kinks to work out, to be sure, but the filmmaking is truly stunning at times, and it manages to capture an energy and a beauty that more polished series can only dream of.‐ TV Line

C+ 81% Devs: Season 1 (TV, 2020) It has [Alex] Garland's signature chilly and cerebral tone, but the pacing is sluggish. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Feb 18, 2020
C 80% Little Fires Everywhere: Season 1 (TV, 2020) Hulu's adaptation is a resounding disappointment, considering the star power behind it - a flat, formulaic melodrama that hits all the wrong notes.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Mar 4, 2020
B 80% Hillary: Hillary (TV, 2020) Clinton makes for an engaging interview subject - thoughtful, good-humored, open to admitting past mistakes - and Hillary's deep dive into her rise to fame and power is certainly compelling. ‐ TV Line

83% Homeland: Season 8 - The English Teacher (TV Episode) Whoa... Homeland definitely knows how to set up a finale, doesn't it? ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2020
B+ 86% High Fidelity: Season 1 (TV, 2020) Early on, it hews a little too closely to the source material, but when it ventures out on its own, it quickly finds an easygoing groove, thanks to an altogether charming lead performance from Zoë Kravitz.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2020
C+ 78% Briarpatch: Season 1 (TV, 2020) The central mystery isn't as interesting as the atmosphere surrounding it.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Feb 3, 2020
100% Homeland: Season 7 - Paean to the People (TV Episode) The Carrie Mathison we know... she's gone.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2020
100% Homeland: Season 7 - All In (TV Episode) Carrie was forced to pull off a tricky balancing act. (And no, that's not a metaphor).‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2020
90% Homeland: Season 7 - Lies, Amplifiers, F**king Twitter (TV Episode) Homeland is currently hitting on all cylinders in Season 7... and quietly putting together its best season in years.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Apr 1, 2018
100% Homeland: Season 7 - Species Jump (TV Episode) An Allison Carr reference! Season 5's CIA mole played by Miranda Otto came up during Saul's meeting with Sandy, who referred to Allison a "textbook honey trap." Hey, that pretty much describes Carrie this week, right?‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2020
78% Homeland: Season 7 - Andante (TV Episode) It feels a little off to add a romantic angle to this relationship so late in the game, doesn't it?‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2020
80% Homeland: Season 7 - Active Measures (TV Episode) Yeah, my cynical side says there's no way this would really go down like this... but it was nice to see, just the same.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2020
B 87% Star Trek: Picard: Season 1 (TV, 2020) It takes a while to fully gel, and some fans might start to get impatient, but I'm happy to report that Picard does eventually set up an intriguing mission that's worthy of its lead character.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Jan 23, 2020
C 76% Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist: Season 1 (TV, 2020) It looks like all of the actors are having a blast filming Zoey's big musical numbers... but that fun never fully translates to us at home.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Dec 31, 2019
C- 91% Katy Keene: Season 1 (TV, 2020) As a Riverdale viewer, I don't mind getting a break from the Black Hood, et al... but after seeing how utterly lacking in conflict Katy's first three episodes are, I almost wanted the Black Hood back.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Jan 6, 2020
C+ 42% Mad About You: Season 1 (TV, 2019) None of this is great art, by any stretch... but I still found myself feeling a certain affection for it.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Nov 13, 2019
B 86% Dead to Me: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Dead to Me tries to be a whole lot of different things at once - but most of them succeed, actually, thanks to the strong work from [Christina] Applegate and [Linda] Cardellini.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2019
97% Pose: Season 2 (TV, 2019) Pose capped off a superb sophomore season with a bit of role reversal - and a triumphant return to the ballroom.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2019
B+ 82% The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 3 (TV, 2019) Maisel is a feast for the eyes as always in Season 3, with impeccably tailored vintage fashions and lavish locales to marvel at. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2019
C+ 81% Fosse/Verdon: Miniseries (TV, 2019) Despite stellar performances from its two lead actors, it never really breaks out of that established biopic framework enough to tell a fresh and compelling story. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Nov 26, 2019
57% Riverdale: Season 4 - Chapter Sixty-Two: Witness for the Prosecution (TV Episode) No Cheryl at all this week?! I know things were busy, but we simply can't go a week without checking in with Miss Blossom, can we?‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Nov 7, 2019
B+ 75% Dickinson: Season 1 (TV, 2019) With an edgy sensibility and a modern-day score of jangly indie rock and thumping hip-hop, Dickinson is a sharp parody of stuffy period dramas, with a healthy dose of overheated teen soap dramatics as well.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2019
D 43% See: Season 1 (TV, 2019) See relies on graphically gory battle scenes to carry a largely incoherent story, but I found myself giggling far more often than its creators intended. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2019
C- 60% The Morning Show: Season 1 (TV, 2019) The Morning Show is overly talky, tonally confused, badly miscast in places - and, given the talent involved, a major disappointment.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2019
B- 73% For All Mankind: Season 1 (TV, 2019) The space-race angle has real bite, and the series gleams with rich period detail. But the final product is a bit dramatically inert: It tries to juggle too many characters at once, and doesn't make any of them as compelling as its core concept.‐ TV Line

100% Riverdale: Season 4 - Chapter Sixty: Dog Day Afternoon (TV Episode) Were you worried that Riverdale was getting too safe and boring this season? Well, you won't be after this week's completely cuckoo episode.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 24, 2019
B 81% Living With Yourself: Season 1 (TV, 2019) I'm not sure all of this would work nearly as well without Rudd at its center, honestly, but his innate charm helps hold those thin narrative strands together. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2019
B 91% Evil: Season 1 (TV, 2019-2020) The smart, penetrating writing from The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King takes an unflinching look at the nature of evil and deftly probes the tension between faith and science. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Sep 19, 2019
B+ 57% The Politician: Season 1 (TV, 2019) The Politician provides plenty of laughs and on-target jabs at our current political moment - but it's the battered yet still-beating heart found in Platt's performance that ultimately has us pulling the lever for this one.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2019
100% A Black Lady Sketch Show: Season 1 (TV, 2019) This isn't just a win for representation: A Black Lady Sketch Show is damn hilarious, too, taking insightful swipes at the ridiculousness of modern life, wowing us with big-budget genre parodies and serving up a host of delightful celebrity cameos to boot‐ TV Line

42% Four Weddings and a Funeral: Season 1 (TV, 2019) There's nothing incredibly groundbreaking and innovative about any of this... but there doesn't really need to be. It's a cute, lighthearted throwback that goes down easy in an era of tough-to-watch dramas.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2019
No Score Yet Muppets Tonight: Season 1 (TV, 1996) Looking back through old YouTube clips, Muppets Tonight is actually pretty enjoyable. Sure, a lot of its references are dated, but the timeless humor and heart shine through.‐ Yahoo.com

100% Legion: Season 3 - Chapter 20 (TV Episode) FX's Legion got trippier than ever in its third and final season premiere, with David leading a far-out cult of hippies.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2019
B+ 82% Euphoria: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Euphoria is admittedly better at establishing a distinctive mood and style than at telling a story, at least early on... But Euphoria's exhilarating style and achingly incisive observations more than make up for any storytelling flaws it might have.‐ TV Line

100% Claws: Season 3 (TV, 2019) We say this a lot while watching Claws, but... WTF?‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Jun 10, 2019
85% Big Little Lies: Season 2 (TV, 2019) Through it all, the signature Big Little Lies approach is in full effect: sharply observed, endlessly patient, emotionally true.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Jun 10, 2019
A- 98% Tuca & Bertie: Season 1 (TV, 2019) [It's] a vibrantly colorful, delightfully surreal animated comedy that mashes up the best bits of those two shows with a playful, psychedelic edge.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2019
A- 68% Black Mirror: Season 5 - Smithereens (TV Episode) It's a gripping, old-fashioned thriller with shades of Taxi Driver that doubles as a vicious commentary on our crippling tech addiction, with sharp bursts of dark humor throughout. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2019
C- 50% Black Mirror: Season 5 - Rachel, Jack and Ashley, Too (TV Episode) It gestures in the direction of some interesting points about exploiting a celebrity's likeness, but most of its insights are ultimately trite, and the final act takes some truly ridiculous turns that feel very un-Black Mirror.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2019
B 73% Black Mirror: Season 5 - Striking Vipers (TV Episode) Whoo boy... this one is going to make some gamer dudes very uncomfortable. ‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted Jun 5, 2019
68% NOS4A2: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Any flickering glimmer of quality gets smothered by a drab visual palette, sluggish plotting and a crushingly dour tone.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted May 31, 2019
D 7% L.A.'s Finest: Season 1 (TV, 2019) A loud, dumb mess of a cop drama, loaded up with corny punchlines and incoherent plotting. So if you don't have the ability to watch it... well, consider yourself lucky.‐ TV Line
Read More | Posted May 13, 2019
80% Riverdale: Season 3 - Chapter Fifty-Six: The Dark Secret of Harvest House (TV Episode) Riverdale is getting really dark... and I kind of love it.‐ TV Line

100% Killing Eve: Season 2 - Do You Know How to Dispose of a Body? (TV Episode) Sunday's premiere doesn't waste any time, picking up right after the chaotic end of Season 1.‐ TV Line
