Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
A 91% The Terror: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "The Terror isn't trying to impress its prestigeness upon you by making everything as nasty and extreme as possible. These may be humans under almost unimaginable pressure, but they're still recognizably human. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 27, 2018
75% The Path: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "All told, The Path is an engaging way to spend your spare time, but you're not likely to make like the cult members and reorganize your life around it. " ‐ Decider
Posted Jan 23, 2018
66% The Alienist: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "It's true that the source material here predates the current surplus of unstable cop geniuses, but this adaptation of a 1994 book about an 1896 crime must still move and thrill us in 2018. " ‐ New York Times
Posted Jan 23, 2018
75% Fargo: Season 3 Episode 10 "The genius of this episode, and of Fargo's divisive but richly acted, thoughtfully shot, and cryptically written third season, lies in asking us what we think that view might be. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
93% Fargo: Season 3 Episode 9 "I've enjoyed season three of Fargo so much for so many reasons that I've barely had the time or inclination to comment on the few things that haven't quite clicked. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
86% Fargo: Season 3 Episode 8 "It's called "Who Rules the Land of Denial?", and it features the season's best action/thriller sequences, its goriest crimes, its biggest surprises, its most striking cinematography, and its most direct trafficking in the uncanny. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
100% Fargo: Season 3 Episode 7 "Season 3 remains a slippery thing, the shape of its final act unclear, a far cry from the escalation toward the preordained Sioux Falls Massacre that gave Season 2 its irresistible momentum. But man oh man, this part is as solid and heavy as a stone. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
100% Fargo: Season 3 Episode 6 "Am I the only one who's starting to think V.M. Varga (David Thewlis) isn't all he's, uh, cracked up to be? " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
100% Fargo: Season 3 Episode 5 "God bless the silence, restraint, and deliberately painstaking pacing of crime shows like Better Call Saul and The Americans, but there's something cathartic about watching everything collapse as quickly as possible. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
100% Fargo: Season 3 Episode 4 " Fargo is an expect-the-unexpected kind of show - how else would you describe the opening of this week's episode, "The Narrow Escape Problem." " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
100% Fargo: Season 3 Episode 2 "We live in a world run by racist monsters who would gladly murder your children in front of you if it meant an extra zero for their net worth, so you have to take your pleasure where you can get it, and I get it from Shea Whigham. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
100% Fargo: Season 3 Episode 1 "None of this feels like cheap heat from fanservice, mind you. It's just a deft demonstration of Hawley's understanding of the Coens' source material, and his ability to recombine its constituent elements in new forms like Legos. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
84% American Gods: Season 1 Episode 8 "I'd pray that the show gets better by then, but as an American who's never had to struggle or give thanks for anything, my prayers will surely fall on deaf ears. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
94% American Gods: Season 1 Episode 7 " I'm still not crazy about it, it's a better episode than most. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
81% American Gods: Season 1 Episode 6 "But expecting sociopolitical subtlety from this show is a fool's errand. Think of how it's addressed race: the spider-god Anansi dressed like a cartoon pimp, lecturing a ship full of slaves. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
89% American Gods: Season 1 Episode 5 "It all becomes easier to swallow if Fuller and company regard the originals as the mental junk food Wednesday implies they are. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
95% American Gods: Season 1 Episode 2 "Corny and cringeworthy, it otherwise leads you to suspect that American Gods is material tailor made to bring out the worst in Bryan Fuller. It reduces his visual spectacle to mere excess and flattens his writing from operatic to dime-store paperback " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
100% American Gods: Season 1 Episode 4 "Once again, [Betty Gilpin is] magnificent, a live wire of grief, anger, and bitter black humor. Her eyes seem perpetually red and wet, like she's immediately to one side or the other of a nasty crying jag. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
95% American Gods: Season 1 Episode 3 "Not that I'd be surprised if fans of the show look back on "Head Full of Snow," its third episode, as the one where the series came into its own, a la "College" from The Sopranos Season One. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
95% American Gods: Season 1 Episode 1 "If Fuller and company can combine that emotional tone with the rich, ultraviolent surrealism of the imagery on a regular basis, the way they did on Hannibal, American Gods will be something worth worshipping. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
91% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 10 "Instead, it's a claimant for the most disappointing episode in the history of the show, a profound narrative miscalculation that sees the show retrench rather than create new possibilities, yet also denies the basic sense of completion and catharsis. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
75% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 9 "It's right there in the title for the penultimate episode of the show's third season, a bit of pseudo-codespeak that reads "eps3.8_stage3.torrent": Mr. Robot has moved on to Stage 3. Apparently, that stage involves a lot of smooching. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
100% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 8 "Entitled "eps3.7_dont-delete-me.ko," this week's episode avoids the pitfalls of the previous installment. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
80% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 7 "Usually surefooted even when traveling the most treacherous and tricky narrative paths, Mr. Robot's storytelling seems to have stumbled the second it got past the finish line. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
92% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 5 "Take away all the hacking and window-smashing and whatnot and you're still left with one of the series' most vivid depictions of the dislocating, almost dissociative effect of corporate office architecture and behavior. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
100% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 6 "Like a rough beast racing towards Bethlehem to be born, this week's episode of Mr. Robot picks up where last week's left off and doesn't let up until it's all over but the screaming. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
91% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 4 "Though this season has been both stylistically and narratively straightforward compared to the previous outings, it's no less challenging a viewing experience. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
78% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 3 "It''s one of the most narratively straightforward episodes of Mr. Robot since Season One. It just gets you from point A to point B, is all, even if it had to backtrack a bit to do so. It satisfies a narrative itch, nothing more. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
100% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 2 "It's probably the horror nerd in me talking, but you've got to admire when what was once just a well-regarded cyberthriller with political overtones does something as confrontationally repulsive as this. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 20, 2017
96% Narcos: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "The continuity provided by the theme music aside, Narcos Season 3 essentially functions as the start of a brand new series under the Narcos umbrella -- a backdoor anthology, if you will. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 19, 2017
100% Halt and Catch Fire: Season 4 (TV, 2017) "Christopher Cantwell & Christopher C. Rogers and actors Kerry Bishé, Mackenzie Davis, Toby Huss, Scoot McNairy, and Lee Pace did what their characters could never quite do but never stopped dreaming of doing: They built something that will last. " ‐ Decider
Posted Dec 14, 2017
B 88% Godless: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "In Godless's case, there's not much to disappoint you just yet. The show falls very, very, very squarely within the confines of its genre. " ‐ AV Club

Posted Oct 29, 2017
100% The Deuce: Season 1 Episode 7 "What we have just witnessed was, hands down, the best episode of The Deuce yet. By a lot. Titled "Au Reservoir," it's funny, scary, sad, sexy and entertaining as hell from start to finish. How did this so-so show get so damned good so suddenly? " ‐ Rolling Stone
Posted Oct 22, 2017
100% The Deuce: Season 1 Episode 6 "It's the first installment of David Simon and George Pelecanos's period piece that doesn't feel like bits and pieces stitched together, but a cohesive whole. " ‐ Rolling Stone

Posted Oct 8, 2017
91% The Deuce: Season 1 Episode 4 "It's not the story's bleakness that's the problem. A show about the desperately impoverished and routinely victimized has every right to be dour. It's the drab story-telling that rankles here. Every scene lands with a thud. " ‐ Rolling Stone
Posted Oct 1, 2017
92% The Deuce: Season 1 Episode 3 "Despite the abundant charms of this episode, problems remain. " ‐ Rolling Stone
Posted Sep 25, 2017

Posted Sep 18, 2017
92% The Deuce: Season 1 Episode 1 "The pilot features a whole lot of ... well, atmosphere is putting it generously. " ‐ Rolling Stone
Posted Sep 13, 2017
93% The Deuce: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "David Simon's sleazier-than-thou new HBO show treats Manhattan like a Magic 8-Ball, where losers from the outer boroughs, uptown or across the country get shaken up; the hope is that they come up with a better future for themselves. " ‐ Rolling Stone
Posted Sep 11, 2017

Posted Sep 5, 2017
88% Twin Peaks: The Return Episode 18 "It ended with a scream, and a million questions, only one of which really matters: How could it have ended any other way? " ‐ Rolling Stone
Posted Sep 3, 2017
95% Twin Peaks: The Return Episode 17 "The bulk of the first hour is a crackerjack supernatural thriller in the vein of the original finale that trapped Coop in the Lodge all those years ago. " ‐ Rolling Stone
Posted Sep 3, 2017
100% Twin Peaks: The Return Episode 16 "Even as Lynch and Frost hit the season's highest highs, they still have fresh hells to unleash. " ‐ Rolling Stone
Posted Aug 28, 2017
87% Game of Thrones: Season 7 Episode 7 "While it may have been the longest Game of Thrones episode ever, tonight's colossal season finale -- "The Dragon and the Wolf" -- gets straight to the point, wrapping up storyline after storyline with ruthless efficiency. " ‐ Rolling Stone
Posted Aug 27, 2017
100% Twin Peaks: The Return Episode 15 "This week's episode demonstrates the tremendous reverence and compassion with which co-creators David Lynch and Mark Frost depict people at their most defenseless. " ‐ Rolling Stone
Posted Aug 21, 2017
80% Game of Thrones: Season 7 Episode 6 "Maybe that's the point. The closer we draw to the endgame, the more openly epic the story is going to get. " ‐ Rolling Stone
Posted Aug 20, 2017
100% Twin Peaks: The Return Episode 14 "You never know how and when Twin Peaks will push you to the brink of tears -- all you know is that it will. " ‐ Rolling Stone
Posted Aug 14, 2017
96% Game of Thrones: Season 7 Episode 5 "For all the awe-inspiring imagery and white-knuckle tension, this is still a show that allows its actors to do the storytelling. " ‐ Rolling Stone
