The Mick: Season 1 (2016)

Directed By: Adam Randall (II)

Powerless: Season 1 (2017)
62%

Sherlock: Season 4 (2017)
61%

Adjusted Score: 72.017%
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.

Taboo: Season 1 (2017)
76%
