Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
B- 64% Altered Carbon: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Altered Carbon is often ridiculous, but damned if it isn't the best-looking series Netflix has yet produced. The world of the show is a fully realized technological marvel, a society hundreds of years in the future that also looks like it. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 1, 2018
100% Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 5 (TV, 2017) "This is a hard reset for the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. storyline, and a welcome one that goes big and isn't afraid to experiment with massive large-scale storytelling. What a fantastic twist. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 26, 2018
B 66% Waco: Miniseries (TV, 2018) "With a wealth of source material, Waco crafts a sturdy if inelegant study of how it all went so wrong, aided by almost uniformly strong performances that work to sell merely adequate dialogue. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 23, 2018
A 84% Mosaic: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "It has a story to tell, it doesn't have a singular hero through which to tell it, and there's no neat ending to wrap it all up. We should all be so lucky to get more shows like this. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 22, 2018
B 68% Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Reality isn't always recognizable in these stories, but the characters that populate them are all too real. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 10, 2018
A- 91% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 10 "For all the theorizing, all the reddit threads delving into the significance of a restaurant menu or character name, all the political philosophizing and rabbit holes of mystery, this is a show about the need for human relationships above all else. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 14, 2017
64% What Happened to Monday (2017) "... a crowd-pleasing game of cat-and-mouse, jazzed up by sci-fi flourishes and a high concept. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 14, 2017
81% Tragedy Girls (2017) "... Imagine instead a Heathers that gleefully goes all the way past the point of nihilism, and ends up in a warped funhouse mirror reflection of society that blends camp and satire in equal measure... " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 14, 2017
91% Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold (2017) "How vital is Didion? Harrison Ford shows up to discuss being her carpenter in '70s Malibu, and all you want is to get back to Joan. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 14, 2017
B 75% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 9 "It's already been pointed out how "stage3.torrent" is chockablock with irony, but it's there on a metatextual level, as well. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 7, 2017
B 100% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 8 "After all that drama (good writing paired with formulaic plotting, a rarity on this show), "dont-delete-me.ko" finally gets to its real emotional heart. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 30, 2017
A- 100% Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 3 (TV, 2015-2016) "The ending cliffhanger ... was spectacular. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 27, 2017
B 80% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 7 ""Fredrick+Tanya.chk" examines each of our protagonists in turn, shows them the situation, and makes them regret their role in the world, following all their choices that led them to this dark place. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 26, 2017
A- 100% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 6 ""Kill-pr0cess.par2" is the thrilling adrenaline rush of an episode that last week's unbroken-take gimmick came close to achieving. It's the flip side of the same coin. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 16, 2017
B+ 92% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 5 "One of the things that makes the premise of Mr. Robot so entertaining is how it preys upon our desire for order and our suspicion of authority. Like The X-Files before it, there's always a conspiracy behind every act. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 9, 2017
B 74% SMILF: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "SMILF can sometimes be all over the map, narratively, but in ways that feel true to life, a messiness of necessity for a woman who resists the daily indignities with a fierce determination and blunt openness. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 3, 2017
B- 91% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 4 "Betrayal bookends this installment of Mr. Robot, and Darlene's soul is the real theme running throughout everything that happens. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 2, 2017
B 100% Creep 2 (2017) "For fans of the original who don't mind the loss of scares, Creep 2 improves on the first film in nearly every way, from tone to dialogue to plot. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 24, 2017
B 100% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 2 "All of this somewhat repetitive psychodrama takes a back seat for a change. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 19, 2017
No Score Yet Z Nation: Season 4 (TV, 2017) "Credit where credit's due: Z Nation pulled it off. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 19, 2017
B- 55% Jungle (2017) "Radcliffe convincingly portrays a man slowly stripped to his barest self, driven along by little more than a primal urge to survive. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 17, 2017
B- 100% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 1 "Mr. Robot's season-three premiere is a surprisingly morose and muted installment. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 12, 2017
B- 22% Rememory (2017) "Heading a troupe of excellent actors bringing their A games to this decidedly B-movie material, Dinklage and his fellow performers are a pleasure to watch selling the hell out of this sci-fi-tinged whodunit. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 6, 2017
C 74% Marvel's The Defenders: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "This is part of the issue with TV built for binge-watching: It sacrifices narrative momentum, knowing it can always defer the drama to the next episode. But it ends up harming series overall. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Aug 20, 2017
B- 85% Mr. Mercedes: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Thanks to these capable actors, the stately buildup provided by the first half of this series makes the wait for the payoff worth it. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Aug 9, 2017
C- 58% Midnight, Texas: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "No amount of sex and violence can disguise the fact that this is reductive dramatics, aimed at the bottom of the audience's intelligence, and the show lacks the self-awareness to realize it. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 24, 2017
C 80% Blood Drive: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "If grindhouse TV wants to thrive in the medium, it needs to put its shocks and flesh in service of something more than a game of perpetual provocation and one-upmanship. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 14, 2017
B 88% Archer: Season 8 (TV, 2017) "Archer has always had a nostalgic appreciation for the antic paces of screwball comedy, and going back in time gives the show permission to alter its tone somewhat so as to follow that muse. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 5, 2017
B- 80% 13 Reasons Why: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "There's more than enough reasons to give this ambitious series a try, but maybe one too few to recommend without reservations. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 31, 2017
B+ 86% Legion: Season 1 Episode 8 "This season was entrancing, puzzling, exhausting, and energizing in equal measure. That's storytelling that doesn't need any mutant abilities -- it's exerting a singular power all its own. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 30, 2017
A- 85% Legion: Season 1 Episode 7 "Despite all that happens in "Chapter 7" -- the thrilling heroics, the tense and unsettling confrontations with Lenny, the deadly cliff-hanger ending -- the most significant struggle, as always, is the one inside David's consciousness. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 23, 2017
A- 100% Legion: Season 1 Episode 5 "Everyone in Legion believes in someone or something for different reasons, but they're all driven by that same hope, of finding what they want to see. " ‐ AV Club

A 100% Legion: Season 1 Episode 4 ""Chapter 4" explicitly addresses the nature of storytelling, right from its opening sequence of Oliver breaking the fourth wall to address us directly. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 2, 2017
A- 100% Legion: Season 1 Episode 3 ""Chapter 3" is a sharp integration of backstory and adrenaline-laced narrative, creating more intense stakes for our heroes even as they plunge deeper into the morass of David's memories. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 23, 2017
B+ 87% Legion: Season 1 Episode 2 "What makes Legion's strategy in "Chapter 2" so brilliant is that this is true for all of us. You don't need telepathic powers to find yourself unsettled by your own past, or wondering how new information changes how you perceive yourself. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 22, 2017
B+ 88% Legion: Season 1 Episode 1 "This is a hell of a kickoff to a new series -- visually arresting, sometimes frustrating, but never less than compelling. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 22, 2017
B- 100% Bates Motel: Season 5 (TV, 2017) "Thanks to the four years of accumulated backstory that's come before -- along with the ongoing knowledge of where this ends -- even the most incidental moments take on additional emotional weight. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 21, 2017
B- 26% Don't Knock Twice (2017) "This is the second film in a row where James has proven himself a talented orchestrator of complex low-budget genre fare ... wringing the most out of a limited budget through moxie and smart casting. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 1, 2017
B- No Score Yet Jeff and Some Aliens: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The best laughs come when the series locates small moments of everyday absurdity among the outsized stories. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 12, 2017
B 38% Shut Eye: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "There's nothing innovative about this project, but its commitment to fleet storytelling and a game cast take it far. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 7, 2016
B- 71% Captive: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It's a compelling topic, and the series certainly delivers the expected drama, albeit in a heavy-handed manner, meaning those looking for a docu-diversion should find it worthy of delving into. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 7, 2016
50% Pet (2016) "The films zigs where you expect a depraved zag, resulting in a smart and unsettling tale ... " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 1, 2016
No Score Yet The Benefits of Gusbandry: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Strong production values and clear direction. The Benefits Of Gusbandry, a new web series from Alicia J. Rose, checks off all the above boxes, with a smart, funny voice and honest relationship at its center. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 18, 2016
B 100% Sweet/Vicious: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "The key ingredients -- great leads, strong dialogue, and a can't-miss premise -- are already in place, meaning the show has a solid foundation on which to build and evolve. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 15, 2016

Posted Oct 22, 2016
C+ 80% Wolf Creek: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "Many of the flaws stem from a frustratingly inconsistent narrative. The series can't decide if it wants to be a single heart-pounding tale of revenge, or a more meditative and sprawling journey throughout the remote Australian countryside. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 13, 2016
B 83% Eyewitness: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Eyewitness is the definition of a satisfying middlebrow mystery drama. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 12, 2016
C+ No Score Yet Aftermath: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Aftermath, Syfy's latest foray into end-of-the-world entertainment, has potential, but only if it calms the hell down for five minutes and starts creating some believable characters and scenarios. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 26, 2016
B 70% Mr. Robot: Season 2 Episode 12 "This show offered up a hell of a lot of food for thought, this season. Just because it forgot the dessert doesn't mean we're leaving now. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 22, 2016
B 94% Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 4 (TV, 2016-2017) "It's unclear how Ghost Rider will factor in to all this, but the bigger bad guy right now is something much more mundane: It's the paranoid regulations and stifling conditions of a new, accountable S.H.I.E.L.D. organization. " ‐ AV Club
