Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
100% Peaky Blinders: Season 3 (TV, 2016) "This terrific series has many strengths, not least the music, but one standout is the unflinching way in which it contrasts the worlds of power and money with the grubby, ripped fingernails of appalling violence necessary to achieve them. " ‐ Observer (UK)
Posted Jan 23, 2018
93% The Crown: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "Crucially, [Claire] Foy as Elizabeth is quite beyond outstanding. " ‐ Observer (UK)
Posted Dec 11, 2017
88% Godless: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "Unrelentingly brilliant. " ‐ Observer (UK)
Posted Dec 4, 2017
95% Planet Earth: Blue Planet II: Miniseries (TV, 2017-2018) "To me, wrapped and rapt in the wrasses, or the orcas slapping herring, or the dancing surfing dolphins, or simply the tower-block waves crashing, slo-mo ethereal, off New Zealand, this, and (crucially) the story of its filming was magnificent. " ‐ Observer (UK)
Posted Nov 6, 2017
99% Alias Grace: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "I defy anyone to end this series not a little in love with Gadon's Grace, be she murderess or not. Quilty or not quilty. " ‐ Observer (UK)
Posted Nov 6, 2017
78% Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 9 (TV, 2017) "This show manages to splash equal vitriol on both entitled baby boomers and pantywaist millennials, and is in debt to no doctrine: in thrall to nothing except truth and humour. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Oct 8, 2017
71% Rellik: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The premise, of finding out what happened, rather than what's going to, is intriguing, and eventually more than rewarding: and the whole thing deserves care attention, access to a decent watch-again system. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Sep 18, 2017
80% Tin Star: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "This grips the windpipe already. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Sep 10, 2017
60% The Halcyon: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Early signs... all point to this becoming another little ITV triumph, as long as the focus stays skewed even slightly towards the political than the upstairs/downstairs bedhopping. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Sep 5, 2017
95% Game of Thrones: Season 7 (TV, 2017) "The showrunners are wholly loosed... Free to run wild to the ultimate, constrained only by the levels of glee, cliffhangerdom, betrayal, dragonglass, mask magic, vomitus, faeces, gore and glory they feel they can reasonably stuff behind our eyeballs. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jul 24, 2017
64% Ozark: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "It's bound to suffer from comparisons to Breaking Bad, even to Fargo, and of course the vicissitudes of a family life on the lam have never been better explored than in The Sopranos, but I'm reckoning it will hold its own and then some. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jul 24, 2017
64% Loch Ness: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "There is apparently a Finnish word - juoksentelisinkohan, if you're interested, as you should be - which translates, not even roughly but literally, as "I wonder if I should run around aimlessly". " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jun 19, 2017
93% Fargo: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "Despite a too-slow opening episode, it's now settled to a taut thrum of wit, blood, intrigue and what Nikki likes to call "unfathomable pinheadery" " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jun 12, 2017
74% Orange Is the New Black: Season 5 (TV, 2017) "After wilfully setting my stupid head against the cultishness of this show, I am a sudden and thorough convert. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jun 12, 2017
94% Twin Peaks: The Return (TV, 2017) "Yes, I think Mr Lynch may have done it again. Just call me a Peaks freak, but I think I know what's going on, or will in about 25 years; for the moment, jes' enjoying the ride, ma'am, and hugely. " ‐ Guardian
Posted May 30, 2017
100% King Charles III on Masterpiece (2017) "By turns bouncy, melancholy, arrogant and sore betrayed, the face little resembles that of Charles but, somehow, within its planes, there is conveyed the selfsame sense of insane privilege, niggling grievance and open, misunderstood humanity. " ‐ Guardian
Posted May 15, 2017
87% I Love Dick: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "From where I sit with my baffles it still looks like old-fashioned sexism, albeit in reverse. " ‐ Guardian
Posted May 15, 2017
32% Girlboss: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Did you hear that sound? That was another dull, pewter toll of the bell in the latest long threnody to the death of feminism. " ‐ Guardian
Posted May 1, 2017
100% The Durrells in Corfu: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "This is not a period piece, though the sense of year and place are immense: the ironies, heartbreaks, embarrassments and emotional spayings are urgently recognisable today to anyone who's ever been part of a family. " ‐ Guardian
Posted May 1, 2017
75% Guerrilla: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "It's an honestly valuable, if wholly imagined, testament to the mood of the times, with some viscerally shocking scenes and an utterly credible mood of menace. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Apr 17, 2017
45% The Great Indoors: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "First bite, and it's Satire 0, Snowflakes 1, and Fry gets no good lines whatsoever. Whatever was our national treasure doing? Had he just been wandering past the set? " ‐ Guardian
Posted Mar 21, 2017
100% Chewing Gum: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "A constant blithering surprise, and thus to be truly cherished in TV-land. " ‐ Observer (UK)
Posted Mar 21, 2017
100% Spy in the Wild: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "It won't -- quite -- knock Attenborough off his god-spot, though much of the filming was equally winning. But the insights vouchsafed us, by the simple premise of animatronic spycams disguised as wee beasties, were truly remarkable. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Mar 21, 2017
100% The Replacement: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "It was remarkable for many things. The skill of the storytelling was one: writer and director Joe Ahearne ratcheted the tension in ever-credible gradations, yet to the extent that by the end you were left blinking, asking: how did it get to this? " ‐ Guardian
Posted Mar 20, 2017
100% Catastrophe: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "Catastrophe remains the funniest programme on television, despite its success. " ‐ Guardian

Posted Mar 6, 2017
94% SS-GB: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "Despite my brain reeling with so many subfusc wartime retro-dramas, it's the best of the bunch. Lend it your ears. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Mar 1, 2017
90% Girls: Season 6 (TV, 2017) "I land -- just -- on the sympathetic side, because of some bravura writing, and similar performances. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 21, 2017
98% Roots: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "It's angry and beautiful, shameful and shaming, bloody and leathery and salty and viciously vital to any of our histories. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 13, 2017
100% Search Party: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "What began as a venomously funny invitation to loathe hipster millennials morphs into something more dark, nuanced and, dare I say it, celebratory of them. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 6, 2017
40% The Collection: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "It's glossy and murky at the same time, and mostly terrific, again in terms of (even looser) history. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 31, 2017
No Score Yet Call the Midwife: Season 6 (TV, 2017) "This has never, despite occasionally being wrongly sold as such, been sweetly cosy retro TV, and shows no signs of easing on the social grit as we move further into the 1960s. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 31, 2017
76% Homeland: Season 6 (TV, 2017) "The stage is set wonderfully for a clash between president, spymasters, and the torn loyalties of both Carrie and Saul. Bring it on. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 30, 2017
100% Fortitude: Season 2 (TV, 2016-2017) "Part terrifying, part bonkers, wholly immersive.. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Jan 30, 2017
No Score Yet Vicious: Season 3 (TV, 2016) "They do try, the dear boys, but they're merely putting greasepaint on a pig. " ‐ Observer (UK)
Posted Dec 19, 2016
65% The Man in the High Castle: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "I'm still as confused as a cross-eyed lemur. It is, however, tremendously worth watching, for the style, the grandiose visions, and actually much of the acting too. " ‐ Observer (UK)
Posted Dec 19, 2016
80% Versailles: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "Eleven full minutes into Versailles, and I was cheerfully bonding with the Franco-Canadian mood of it all. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Sep 28, 2016
91% The Night Manager: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "Tom Hiddleston, as Pine, is perfect. Hiddleston summons, personifies, implacable: he's that real classy deal, but with hints of hanging thunder. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 29, 2016
86% The New Yorker Presents: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "As with the New Yorker itself, you will be torn between the utters of captivation and boredom. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 22, 2016
77% Vinyl: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Fine. So be it. I'm happily inured, as should you be, to Fear of Missing Out, especially 43 years on. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 22, 2016
96% American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson (TV, 2015) "It would all be great bubblecorn entertainment were it not also so very, and lest we forget, murderously, true. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Feb 22, 2016
86% War & Peace: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Davies has done a tremendous job, as far as the brief ran. He has already given us a Sunday-night plethora of visual temptation and fully realised characters. " ‐ Observer (UK)
Posted Jan 13, 2016
95% The Man in the High Castle: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "This is a mammoth venture, immensely binge watchable, and it will deal, as if you didn't know already, with questions of loyalty, family, history, American-ness. " ‐ Observer (UK)
Posted Nov 23, 2015
No Score Yet Peep Show: Season 9 (TV, 2015) "Just lovely and surely gong-heavy soon. " ‐ Observer (UK)
Posted Nov 19, 2015
85% London Spy: Series 1 (TV, 2015) "Whishaw, shaping up to be an actor of serious stature, has never nailed it better. " ‐ Observer (UK)
Posted Nov 16, 2015
97% Show Me a Hero: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Just phenomenally good, only encapsulating with savage wit, style and perfect illogic the tale of racism and the fading American dream towards the end of last century. " ‐ Guardian
Posted Oct 26, 2015
75% Episodes (US): Season 4 (TV, 2015) "It has Joey from Friends in the shape of Matt LeBlanc, playing himself, Matt, as an older, greyer and slappably unwiser version of Joey from Friends! It has Tamsin Greig! And Kathleen Rose Perkins! And it's really underwhelming! " ‐ Observer (UK)
Posted May 29, 2015
79% Wayward Pines: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It is a cult looking for a following, and it's already got me on board as a beady-eyed acolyte. " ‐ Observer (UK)
Posted May 29, 2015
89% The Affair: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "It's all done with great style and skill, if an understandable frustration in hindsight on behalf of the third party, the viewer, to get at the objective truth. " ‐ Observer (UK)
Posted May 29, 2015
75% House of Cards: Season 3 (TV, 2015) "Subtly and luminously shot in 50 shades of you-know-what, this is a wonderfully intelligent exposition of all worldwide politics. " ‐ Observer (UK)
