by and | January 13, 2017 | Comments

It’s time for our weekly countdown of the Winter TV premieres! Here are the best new shows for the week of Friday, January 13, 2017. See how this week’s shows, The Young Pope, Sneaky Pete, Victoria, Taboo, and A Series of Unfortunate Events stack up against each other on the Tomatometer!

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Strong performances by Jenna Coleman and Rufus Sewell hint at Downton-esque potential for Victoria, but the narrative falls just shy of that soapy mark.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Suspenseful, smart, and terrifically cast, Sneaky Pete is part dramedy, part crime caper, and all in all entertaining.

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%

#1
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.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Enjoyably dark, A Series of Unfortunate Events matches the source material's narrative as well as its tone, leaving viewers with a wonderfully weird, dry, gothic comedy.
