Beowulf: Season 1 (2016)
58%

#44

#43
Adjusted Score: 38.052%
Critics Consensus: Sleepy Hollow's third season retains the series' gothic theatrics and the invaluable chemistry between leads Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie, but this go-around shows signs of strain as it attempts to further flesh out a mythology that isn't substantial enough for viewers to lose their heads over.

    Why is number 5 only 77% surrounded by 100% on both sides?

  • simon

    To each, I guess.

  • Ragnar Lodbrok

    For every negative review this season I simply shouted “SHIELD WALL”

  • Felipe G

    Why is Vikings on top if it has less reviews and a lower average rating?

  • BPods

    I give this list an Incomplete.

  • Pinkk

    When you see the 100% have a total of 8 reviews compared to those with lower scores, not to sure on this list :p

      I have the whole season Baskets on my DVR since I haven’t had time to watch it yet…looking forward to binge-watching the whole thing when I have more free time after the college semester ends. I have all of OJ too, but I’m on the fence about if I want to see that. I’ve heard a lot of mixed reactions to that one.

      • Poncho-Da-God

        You’ll be disappointed

  • d12

    I am early i got a joke

  • Dennis Bowers

    What is the basis for this list? No Flash, no Supergirl, but Legends of Tomorrow is listed?

    • Catalyst

      Shows that started their runs in the spring. Flash and Supergirl started their runs in fall and are continuing. Granted, WD is also on the list. On second thought, no idea.

  • dfsfdv

    Isn’t fair because OB’s only had one episode… but so far so amazing

  • Poncho-Da-God

    Dice is pretty good. The second episode is classic. Game Of Thrones should be #1 on the list.

  • JFH

    The Americans is great! It proves that you don’t need superheroes, monsters, magic, CGI, blood, and endless action to create an amazing show. Whatever happened to storytelling.

  • J_S_Mastropiero

    Gotham 90% Flash 100% Agents of shield 100% Supergirl 90% Agent Carter 80%…..Daredevil 75% Something is fundamentally broken with Rotten Tomatoes…or critics

  • Doofy69

    This list is poopy.
