Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Even a cast of talented comedic actors can't keep Friends from College from being anything but underwhelming.

Gypsy: Season 1 (2017)
40%

#24
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Gypsy's ludicrous plot trudges along, dragging a talented cast with it.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: While I'm Dying Up Here hints at untapped potential and deserves praise for authentic period detail, its attempts at affecting drama are undermined by subpar writing and a muddled focus.

#22
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: This old-fashioned tour through F. Scott Fitzgerald's vision of Hollywood has lush production values and an attractive varnish of glamorous pedigree, but lacks a storytelling hook or a compelling character to latch onto - resulting in an inert bauble that is pleasing to look at but elusive to feel.

Snowfall: Season 1 (2017)
62%

#21
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite Singleton's accurate recreation of 1983 Los Angeles and a strong lead performance from Damson Idris.Snowfall struggles to create a compelling drama from its separate storylines.

#20
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Midnight, Texas recycles too many southern gothic tropes to possess much of its own unique flavor, but it's endearingly idiosyncratic enough to merit attention from viewers with an interest in the occult.
