Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
100% Killing Eve: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "It's a witty and lively show, fast-paced and suspenseful when it needs to be but not afraid to slow down and let people talk, or to bumble amusingly. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 9, 2018
100% Castle: Season 8 (TV, 2015-2016) "It didn't abandon Castle and Beckett to die holding hands on a kitchen floor, but left them happy, ever after. And though I know they are not real people, I am grateful for this canonical kindness. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 3, 2018
83% The Last O.G.: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Lines may fall flat, but there is enough chemistry among the players to keep The Last O.G decent, indecent company. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 3, 2018
69% The Crossing: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "It is watchable, even diverting television; but it is definitely good [Steve] Zahn. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 2, 2018
71% The Dangerous Book for Boys: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Actually, it feels pretty fuzzy all the way through, conscientiously warm and mostly predictable. Lessons are learned, right on time. Some viewers, and parents of viewers, will take such qualities as a recommendation, and they're not wrong to. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 30, 2018
40% Alex, Inc.: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "It's good-natured almost to a fault, a giant dimple of a show. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 29, 2018
40% Splitting Up Together: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Best of all is [Jenna] Fischer, who was the normal soul of The Office and has a satisfying way of commanding attention without asking for it, of seeming not to act, which is of course ... acting. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 29, 2018
98% Barry: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "The show is similarly binary: silly and engaging, sunny and dark. It's funny where it wants to be, and sometimes isn't funny at all. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 26, 2018
62% Station 19: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Like other Rhimes productions, the show is very much a work of capital-T Television, a turbocharged melodrama in which twists and surprises transpire with comforting predictability. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 22, 2018
100% Wild Wild Country: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "What this is about, at bottom, is the delights of storytelling - the story that the Ways are expertly telling and the sometimes contradictory, sometimes reinforcing stories that their subjects have to tell. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 19, 2018
58% Rise: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "It is predictable, sometimes down to individual lines; the title itself gives the arc away. But predictability is part of what makes musical theater tick; it delivers the thrill the crowd comes for, dramatic tension leading to inspirational release. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 12, 2018
50% Hard Sun: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "It is as stylish as it is unpleasant, and there are some well-staged action scenes, but overall, the series is loud and tiring, like spending an hour in an MRI machine. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 8, 2018
37% Life Sentence: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "It is a witty show full of attractive, well-spoken people that manages to be a feel-good series even as it remains skeptical about its being a feel-good series. It has it both ways, all the way. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 7, 2018
45% 90th Academy Awards "Kimmel, for his part, seems made for this job - a mainstream performer who is sensitive to the winds of change, he is equally adept calling out injustice and calling for a party. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 5, 2018
61% Carnivàle: Season 1 (TV, 2003) "Carnivale moves like molasses and, for all its careful creepiness, generates very little actual suspense and precious few moments of unpredictable wonder. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 5, 2018
94% Flint Town: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "It opens you up to different, conflicting points of view - or at least reminds you that they exist - which is just what you want from such a series. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 1, 2018
70% Final Space: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "It clips along and looks good - the space backgrounds and a bioluminescent planet in black-light colors are especially lovely - and there are not so many animated space serials around that, even with its faults, Final Space doesn't have a niche to fill. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 26, 2018
76% Boston Legal: Season 1 (TV, 2004-2005) "What they do, and all they need to do, is to set the players moving. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 23, 2018
77% Seven Seconds: Season 1 (TV, 2018) ""Seven Seconds" does keep you in suspense with the expectation that bad things will happen, and they do. Nevertheless, the series is more hopeful than not. To find out just what that means you'll have to watch. I recommend you do. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 21, 2018
100% Detectorists: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "The series is quiet and lovely, with deep things to show and tell about the land and history. This season, the series' last, is generous even to old enemies. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 21, 2018
No Score Yet The Detour: Season 3 (TV, 2018) "The series is a sort of cartoon, loud and physical, sometimes violently physical - though not physically violent, if you see the distinction - but there is real commitment in the performances. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 21, 2018
No Score Yet Schitt's Creek: Season 4 (TV, 2017-2018) "It's a show about family and community and baby-steps growth that is neither cynical nor sentimental; it is crazy, and crazy sweet. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 21, 2018
89% The Trade: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "On the relatively positive side, "The Trade" is a reminder that the people who are caught up in this world are only human; it encourages empathy. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 14, 2018
30% Our Cartoon President: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Come for the serial reveals, stay for the life lessons. (Don't judge a book by its cover. Pick up your room.) Or come for the lessons and stay for the reveals. It works either way. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 9, 2018
24% Here and Now: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "But universality is a thin line that separates the obvious from the enlightening; things that everyone feels risk triteness when turned into art. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 9, 2018
96% Queer Eye: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Come for the serial reveals, stay for the life lessons. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 7, 2018
65% Altered Carbon: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "The series is convoluted, digressive and long. You may forget by the end what the beginning was about, as the main case is clouded by others. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 5, 2018
61% A.P. Bio: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "It's a Bill Murray part, basically, of the sort Bill Murray has outgrown. But Howerton - abrasive at first, tolerably abrasive later on - finds some original things to do with it. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 2, 2018
92% 2 Dope Queens: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Network money gives them a fancy set - a rooftop overlooking the New York skyline - a wig and wardrobe budget and a big, elegant space in which to play, the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, with no loss of the original's scrappy delightfulness. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 1, 2018
80% Longmire: Season 2 (TV, 2013) "Lou Diamond Phillips as Walt's best friend... ditto Katee Sackhoff, whom you loved or should have on "Battlestar Galactica," as the more faithful of Walt's deputies. Her work here gives you no reason to long for Starbuck. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 24, 2018
83% Bellevue: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "It has some things to recommend it - star Anna Paquin above all, and its frosty setting - and like most any mystery, it may keep you watching to the end just by virtue of holding back the solution. But it is also full of nonsense. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 23, 2018
100% Counterpart: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) "But it is also pleasant on its own terms to see [J.K.] Simmons, a fine actor and Oscar winner who rarely gets such parts, as the leading man - leading men, and to watch him work with [Olivia] Williams. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 22, 2018
59% The Resident: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "If it doesn't break any new ground in the genre, it efficiently delivers a familiar mix of ethical conundrums and colorful characters, with just enough blood and sex to seem "real" in TV terms. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 22, 2018
83% Corporate: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "I found it consistently clever (if sometimes obviously so), though I rarely laughed. Laughter may not be the appropriate response, in any case. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 17, 2018
67% Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Unless your mind is very fresh to these subjects, it will not be blown, but that is not to say you won't fret over the fate of the characters, or feel their feelings, or hope for the hopeful rather than hopeless outcome. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 12, 2018
No Score Yet The Office (UK): Christmas Special (TV, 2003) Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 10, 2018
85% The Chi: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "But were you to remove the bodies and the bad guys from the story, there is enough individual life in these characters to make them worth knowing. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 8, 2018
79% The X-Files: Season 11 (TV, 2018) "It comes off less as an exercise in brand revival and more a genuine new season of "The X-Files." " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 3, 2018
56% LA to Vegas: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The trip is relatively free from turbulence, there are some things to see (and treats from the service cart if you're lucky), and you are back on the ground almost before you know you're flying. There is something to be said merely for not crashing. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 2, 2018
46% A Christmas Story Live! "It is a risky business turning a near-perfect thing into a somewhat less-perfect thing, but it feels churlish to cavil about so much hard work done in a celebratory spirit. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Dec 17, 2017
86% Dark: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "A beautiful, German-made minor-key tone poem in the shape of a puzzle-box sci-fi mystery television series. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 30, 2017
100% Lady Dynamite: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "Lady Dynamite is something much better, if harder to grasp. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 29, 2017
88% Rome : Season 1 (TV, 2005) "... "Rome" starts slowly -- indeed, it stays slow, betraying a deliberation that marks it as a BBC co-production -- but rewards attention. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 28, 2017
89% The Pacific: Miniseries (TV, 2010) "I'll say now, before I get down to picking its nits -- it has a few, and most might be predicted from the Spielberg oeuvre -- that it's a splendid production, absolutely worth watching in its 10-hour entirety. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 22, 2017
88% Godless: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "I can tell you that I did not want to curse my television, and that "Godless," the grimness of its title notwithstanding, goes somewhere almost corny, but kind of beautiful. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 22, 2017
70% No Activity: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Smart, odd and assured, "No Activity" strengthens an already decent case for expanding your discretionary television spending. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 21, 2017
100% Back: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) "Blackwood maintains the ambiguity, which is both more threatening and funnier than any definitive answer could be. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 17, 2017
45% S.W.A.T.: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) "For many viewers, S.W.A.T. will be the very definition of comfort television; you know who you are, and have at it. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Nov 2, 2017
89% Burn Notice: Season 1 (TV, 2007) "The dialogue is always to the point, yet it gives even the bit players enough room to create something memorable. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
Posted Oct 27, 2017
100% Mike Judge Presents: Tales From the Tour Bus: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "Come for the comedy, stay for the singing. " ‐ Los Angeles Times
