Recommended

Shows, or rather seasons, labeled recommended were able to carry that positive initial impression all the way to its season finale.


Series Ratings

Positive (Watch This)

The first episode just hooks you. Be it the characters’ perceptions, the jokes or drama, or simply because it seems all the time and effort made into the production seriously just paid off.

Mixed (Stick Around)

As of the first episode, you can see potential in the future, but it is hard to tell if you’re being optimistic or the series just needs time to flesh everything out.

Negative (Don’t Watch)

The show just seems like it won’t hold your interest. Which isn’t to say one or two things may not seem like they can be a sort of silver lining or act as some beacon of hope, but for the most part the show seems like it will go downhill fast. More than likely due to a far too familiar storyline and generic characters.
