Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Odd and ambitious, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency sometimes overdoses on pure weirdness but offers absurdist rewards to those who stick with it.

Chance: Season 1 (2016)
75%

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Black Mirror answers the call for a larger season with a double batch of solid episodes that prove Charlie Brooker remains a masterful dystopian storyteller.
