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.

See the final results of the winter TV season:

Mute (2018)

Adjusted Score: 23.964%
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: Berlin, the future, but close enough to feel familiar: In this loud, often brutal city, Leo (Alexander Skarsgård) - unable... [More]
Directed By: Duncan Jones

Adjusted Score: 18.367%
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.

The Outsider (2018)

Adjusted Score: 17.106%
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: Set in post-WWII Japan, an imprisoned American soldier (Leto) is released with the help of his Yakuza cellmate. Now free,... [More]
Directed By: Martin Zandvliet

Valor: Season 1 (2017)

Adjusted Score: 21.345%
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.
Synopsis: In this drama series, an elite unit of U.S. Army helicopter pilots is sent on a top secret mission to... [More]

Adjusted Score: 20.62%
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.

Adjusted Score: 28.662%
Critics Consensus: With only a mildly interesting premise, Mind Games leaves viewers with few reasons to continue playing.
Synopsis: A unique agency solves problems for clients by using psychological manipulation.... [More]

Adjusted Score: 27.019%
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.
Synopsis: The Bayer-Boatwrights, a Portland-based multiracial family, gather together for the 60th birthday party of patriarch Greg Boatwright (Tim Robbins), a... [More]

Adjusted Score: 24.487%
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: 33.01%
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.
Synopsis: This animated series offers a satirical look at life in the White House and explores the President's relationships with his... [More]
Directed By: Kirill Yeretsky

Adjusted Score: 37.527%
Critics Consensus: Life Sentence avoids asking tough questions about serious issues, settling instead for a cloying sweetness.
Synopsis: For the last eight years, Stella (Lucy Hale) lived her life to the fullest, due to being diagnosed with terminal... [More]

The Brave: Season 1 (2017)

Adjusted Score: 42.699%
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.
Synopsis: A team of D.C.-based intelligence analysts headed by DIA Deputy Director Patricia Campbell (Anne Heche) join forces with an elite... [More]
Directed By: Marisol Adler, David Boyd

Adjusted Score: 62.045%
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.
Synopsis: Starring stand-up comedians Esther Povitsky ("Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" and named Variety's "10 comics to watch in 2017") and Benji Aflalo ("Not... [More]

Absentia: Season 1 (2017)

Adjusted Score: 50.133%

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

Adjusted Score: 48.912%

Hard Sun: Season 1 (2018)

Adjusted Score: 49.653%
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.

Adjusted Score: 64.234%
Critics Consensus: No consensus yet.
Synopsis: There was nothing predictable about David Bowie. Everything was designed to intrigue, to challenge, to defy all expectations. But perhaps... [More]
Starring: David Bowie
Directed By: Francis Whately

Dynasty: Season 1 (2017)

Adjusted Score: 51.328%
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.
Synopsis: Fallon Carrington (Elizabeth Gillies) is a smart and cunning businesswoman who believes she will soon become the new COO of... [More]

Adjusted Score: 50.447%
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)

Adjusted Score: 55.09%

Adjusted Score: 56.272%
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.

The Polka King (2017)

Adjusted Score: 66.597%
Critics Consensus: Despite moments of hilarity and a talented ensemble, discordant direction and a sloppy script keep The Polka King from truly singing.
Synopsis: In The Polka King, Jack Black stars as Jan Lewan, a Polish immigrant who became the "King of Pennsylvania Polka."... [More]

Adjusted Score: 59.769%
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.
Synopsis: An idealistic young doctor, Devon Pravesh (Manish Dayal), gets a rough reality check when he begins his first day under... [More]

Rise: Season 1 (2017)

Adjusted Score: 60.903%
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.
Synopsis: Series 1 follows a passionate teacher who galvanises drama students and an entire town.... [More]

Adjusted Score: 65.045%
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.
