Winter TV Scorecard 2016

The Mick: Season 1 (2017)
58%

#53
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Kaitlin Olson's considerable charm isn't enough to keep the intermittently funny The Mick from falling prey to conventional storylines and hard-to-root-for characters.

#52
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: 24: Legacy offers well-acted escapism, yet this reboot also inherits many of its predecessor's flaws, and an early narrative rut signals a missed opportunity for reinvention.

#51

iBoy (2017)
69%

#51
Adjusted Score: 47162%
Critics Consensus: iBoy's original premise and Maisie Williams' strong performance aren't enough to overwrite a clichéd narrative, too-serious tone, and overall glitchy execution.
Synopsis: A teenager (Bill Milner) wakes from a coma to discover that fragments from his broken smartphone have been embedded into... [More]
Directed By: Adam Randall

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Although its plot is admittedly unwieldy, The Man in the High Castle's second season expands its fascinating premise in powerful new directions, bolstered by stunning visuals, strong performances, and intriguing new possibilities.
Directed By: Ridley Scott

#49
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: While Superior Donuts' talented cast impressively delivers, the annoying laugh track and stale jokes leave a hole in the middle of a crusty -- albeit topical -- narrative.

The Path: Season 2 (2017)
75%

#48
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Path struggles with occasionally logy pacing in its second season, but an expanded canvas and heightened stakes -- along with overall solid performances -- make the end results worth watching.
Directed By: Jason Katims, Michelle Lee

Powerless: Season 1 (2017)
61%

#47
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Powerless has a strong premise leaving room for improvement -- and strong performances from a talented cast -- but the show's initial spark is dimmed by uneven execution and a lack of laughs.

Sherlock: Season 4 (2017)
54%

#46
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Sherlock makes a welcome and shocking return, and Cumberbatch and Freeman are game, but it may prove difficult to live up to the lofty expectations created by the series' lengthy hiatus.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Z: The Beginning of Everything presents an entertaining look at the life of Zelda Fitzgerald that's full of grandeur, splash, and old-timey wit, though the series suffers at times from a formless trajectory and over-the-top characterizations.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Santa Clarita Diet serves up an excellent cast, frequent laughs, and an engaging premise -- but the level of gore might not be to everyone's taste.

#43
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus:
Starring:

The OA: Season 1 (2016)
77%

#42
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The OA is more than OK.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Young Pope's original premise and stylish blend of over-the-top melodrama with profane comedy helps overcome an occasionally muddled plot.
Directed By: Paolo Sorrentino

Taboo: Season 1 (2017)
76%

#40
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: After a sluggish start, Taboo takes hold as a mysterious, dark, and often brutal period drama with plenty of promise as a series -- most notably evident in Tom Hardy's exceptionally watchable performance.

#39

Hairspray Live! (2016)
76%

#39
Adjusted Score: 76291%
Critics Consensus: Hairspray Live! shimmers with outstanding performances, an engaging story, and songs that let its stars shine.
Synopsis: In 1960s Baltimore, a teenage dance-loving girl dreams of getting a spot on a popular television show.... [More]
Directed By: Kenny Leon, Alex Rudzinski
