Directed By: Adam Randall (II)

58%

Adjusted Score: 72.05%
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.

Adjusted Score: 78.533%

Taboo: Season 1 (2017)
77%
