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.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: A clearer sense of purpose and extra helpings of cynicism and danger lead The Magicians to a higher level of engagement.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The New Edition Story colorfully showcases its subjects with honesty and clarity while offering an entertainingly paced overview that leaves room for plenty of the group's greatest hits.
