We ranked new and returning series and films on TV and streaming from January 1 through mid-March by Tomatometer (seasons and films must have had at least 10 reviews to be included).

The final ranking reflects an adjusted score calculated based on the number of reviews a series has; for instance, if one title has 10 reviews and a 100% score, while another has 45 reviews and a 99% score, the second title ranks higher because of the larger pool of critics’ opinions used to form the score.

9JKL: Season 1 (2017)
19%

#94
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Irritatingly uninspired, 9jkl leaves its talented cast out in the cold.

#93

Mute (2017)
21%

#93
Adjusted Score: 25292%
Critics Consensus: Visually polished but narratively derivative and overall muddled, Mute is a would-be sci-fi epic whose title serves as an unfortunate guide to how it might be best enjoyed.
Synopsis: In a Berlin of the future, a mute bartender's search for his missing lady-love takes him deeper and deeper into... [More]
Directed By: Duncan Jones

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Living Biblically commits the cardinal TV sin of wasting the outline of an refreshingly unusual premise on broad, hammy acting and stock sitcom laughs.

#91

The Outsider (2018)
17%

#91
Adjusted Score: 16520%
Critics Consensus: Starring a disengaged Jared Leto and stuffed with gangster cliches, The Outsider never distinguishes itself enough to gain admittance into the inner circle of good yakuza pictures.
Synopsis: After World War II, an American POW stays in Japan and works his way through the rituals and hardships of... [More]
Directed By: Martin Zandvliet

Valor: Season 1 (2017)
21%

#90
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Valor's attempt to highlight an often overlooked segment of the armed services is undercut by a badly judged blend of military action and melodrama.

#89
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.

#88
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: With only a mildly interesting premise, Mind Games leaves viewers with few reasons to continue playing.

#87
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Here and Now clearly has a point it wants to make, but a nebulous plot and unfocused character development stand in the way of its potential.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Wisdom of the Crowd wastes a talented cast on a formulaic procedural crime drama that wavers between modest returns and unintentional laughs.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Sugar-coated satire, Our Cartoon President wavers between scathing social criticism and softball slings in a way that's as unsatisfying as it is uncomfortable.
Directed By: Tim Luecke

#84
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Life Sentence avoids asking tough questions about serious issues, settling instead for a cloying sweetness.

The Brave: Season 1 (2017)
42%

#83
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Formulaic to a fault, The Brave fails to bring anything new to the genre -- though high production values and a capable cast may be diverting enough for some.

#82
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Esther Povistky and Benji Alflalo's awkward charms and convincingly platonic chemistry work, though Alone Together's lack of urgency keeps its nihilistic tenderness from truly jelling.

Absentia: Season 1 (2017)
50%

#81
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Absentia sticks too closely to the procedural handbook, leaving its capable lead and mildly intriguing mystery treading water.
Directed By: Oded Ruskin

S.W.A.T.: Season 1 (2017)
48%

#80
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite a commanding, charming performance from Shemar Moore, S.W.A.T. remains a simple procedural overrun with clichés.

Hard Sun: Season 1 (2018)
48%

#79
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Hard Sun's heady mix of narrative and visual flourishes buckle under a surfeit of clichés that ultimately weigh it down and leave the show a muddled mess.

#78
Adjusted Score: 87239%
Critics Consensus: No consensus yet.
Synopsis: ... [More]
Starring: David Bowie
Directed By: Francis Whately

Dynasty: Season 1 (2017)
49%

#77
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Dynasty's revival retains enough of its predecessor's over-the-top allure to offer a glamorous guilty pleasure in its first season, even if it never quite recaptures the magic of the original.

#76
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Refreshingly lewd humor and funny, relatable characters are crammed into LA to Vegas alongside pacing problems and a dearth of punchlines, leaving this sitcom's high-flying potential stuck in an amiable holding pattern.

Instinct: Season 1 (2018)
54%

#75
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Instinct is ultimately an underwhelming police procedural, despite having Alan Cumming in its arsenal.

#74
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Final Space doesn't always hit its mark, but for those looking for a bite-sized intergalactic comedy it may prove an amusing diversion.

#73

The Polka King (2017)
66%

#73
Adjusted Score: 66218%
Critics Consensus: Despite moments of hilarity and a talented ensemble, discordant direction and a sloppy script keep The Polka King from truly singing.
Synopsis: The rise and fall of Pennsylvania polka sensation Jan Lewan, who ultimately fleeced millions from investors through his polka-related activities.... [More]

#72
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: With sporadic amusement and a handful of decent performances, The Resident​ drifts between medical melodrama and hospital horror with often unintentionally funny results.

Rise: Season 1 (2018)
59%

#71
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Rise's admirable aim to inspire audiences with a grounded depiction of high school theater is undercut by stock characters and an off-putting presumption that it is more moving than it ever manages to be.

#70
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Good Doctor's heavy-handed bedside manner undermines a solid lead performance, but under all the emotionally manipulative gimmickry, there's still plenty of room to improve.
