#27
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Bland and uneven, Disjointed does more smoke-blowing than joke-telling -- though it's further proof that Betsy Sodaro is a comedian to watch.

#26

Dirty Dancing (2017)
19%

#26
Adjusted Score: 19687%
Critics Consensus: Clever casting can't save Dirty Dancing, a hollow remake that trips over its own good intentions.
Synopsis: Spending the summer at a Catskills resort with her family, Frances "Baby" Houseman falls in love with the camp's dance... [More]
Directed By: Wayne Blair

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.

#19

The Mist: Season 1 (2017)
60%

#18
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Mist's absorbing atmosphere and solid special effects struggle to overcome a generally uninspired story and performances.

Ozark: Season 1 (2017)
70%

#17
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Ozark hasn't yet reached the same level as the classic crime dramas to which it will inevitably be compared, but its satisfyingly complex plot - and a gripping performance from Jason Bateman - suggest greater potential.

#16
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: House of Cards enjoys a confident return to form this season, though its outlandish edge is tempered slightly by the current political climate.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Orange Is the New Black's fifth season offers up more of the sharp writing and dizzying tonal juggling acts that fans expect - albeit somewhat less successfully.
Directed By: Jenji Kohan

Claws: Season 1 (2017)
82%

#14
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Well-acted, visually impressive, and energetically paced, Claws leaves a mark with a strong first season that hints at even greater potential.

#13
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Blood Drive indulges its grindhouse elements with gleeful abandon - and balances its gory violence with smart, self-aware humor.

Room 104: Season 1 (2017)
87%

#12
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Room 104 uses its anthology structure to its advantage, telling a series of short, eclectic stories that hit their marks more often than they miss.

#11
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Adult in the best way, I Love Dick expands the scope of its source material while offering smart, provocative, and funny observations on sexuality and gender roles.

#10
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Anne with an E uses its complex central character to offer a boldly stylish, emotionally resonant spin on classic source material that satisfies in its own right.

#9
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The adorable and insightful -- though sometimes grating -- titular pet elevates Downward Dog from its potentially "ruff" premise into a sweet, intellectual comedy.

#8
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: American Gods opens with a series of wildly ambitious gambits -- and rewards viewers' faith with a promising first season whose visual riches are matched by its narrative impact.

#7
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Smartly unpredictable and led by powerful performances from a talented cast, the darkly compelling The Sinner sinks its hooks in fast and doesn't let go.
Directed By: Antonio Campos

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Surreal, suspenseful, and visually stunning, this new Twin Peaks is an auteurist triumph for David Lynch.
Starring:

GLOW: Season 1 (2017)
94%

#5
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: With spot-on 1980s period detail, knockout writing, and a killer cast, GLOW shines brightly.

#4
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Keepers draws on riveting, real-life terror to expose long-buried secrets -- and tells a brilliantly assembled story along the way.
Starring:

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt continues to thrive with a comically agile cast, notable guest stars, and a forceful influx of funny.

Adjusted Score: -1%

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
