A.P. Bio: Season 1 (2018)

Directed By: Helen Hunt

Rise: Season 1 (2017)

Adjusted Score: 60.817%
Critics Consensus: Rise's admirable aim to inspire audiences with a grounded depiction of high school theater is undercut by stock characters and an off-putting presumption that it is more moving than it ever manages to be.

Adjusted Score: 53.033%
