Best-Reviewed Returning TV Shows 2017

Golden Tomato revenge is sweet! When Master of None last graced our awards in 2015, it missed the top spot in the Best New TV Show category by one slot, having been bested by Better Call Saul — which doesn’t get a spot in our top 10 here.

The order of the rank below reflects the Adjusted Score as of December 31, 2017. Scores might change over time.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Master of None's second season picks up where its predecessor left off, delivering an ambitious batch of episodes that builds on the show's premise while adding surprising twists.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Stranger Things' slow-building sophomore season balances moments of humor and a nostalgic sweetness against a growing horror that's all the more effective thanks to the show's full-bodied characters and evocative tone.

Insecure: Season 2 (2017)
98%

#3
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Insecure displays title-defying confidence in its second season, upping the comedy and deepening the relationships between its talented ensemble.

#4
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: By voluntarily blowing up its premise, The Good Place sets up a second season that proves even funnier than its first.
Directed By: David Miner

Catastrophe: Season 3 (2017)
100%

#5
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Catastrophe deepens the drama in its latest season -- but remarkably loses none of its comedy along the way.

#6
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: American Crime offers a unique anthology series filled with surprising revelations and compelling inter-connected narratives that opt for original, emotional human commentary instead of tired arguments over current events.

#7
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Silicon Valley's fourth season advances the veteran comedy's overall arc while adding enough new wrinkles -- and delivering more than enough laughs -- to stay fresh.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Planet Earth II offers a spectacular, moving, unprecedented account of the natural world.
Directed By: Mike Gunton

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Halt and Catch Fire's character-driven drama culminates in an optimistic ode to the early internet age that's bound to stand the test of time.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return picks up right where its predecessor left off, retaining all the cult classic's crucial ingredients and adding a handful of fresh twists.


Best-Reviewed TV Dramas 2017

Law and disorder dominates the drama series category this year. Of the crime tales, The Good Fight triumphs against titles including Outstanding Drama Series Emmy-winner The Handmaid’s Tale.

The order of the rank below reflects the Adjusted Score as of December 31, 2017. Scores might change over time.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: An auspicious beginning for CBS All Access, The Good Fight solidly follows its predecessor while allowing for new storytelling styles, a wider narrative scope, and a chance for its lead to explore new territory with a relatable human struggle.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Haunting and vivid, The Handmaid's Tale is an endlessly engrossing adaptation of Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel that's anchored by a terrific central performance from Elisabeth Moss.

#3
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: American Crime offers a unique anthology series filled with surprising revelations and compelling inter-connected narratives that opt for original, emotional human commentary instead of tired arguments over current events.

#4
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Suspenseful, smart, and terrifically cast, Sneaky Pete is part dramedy, part crime caper, and all in all entertaining.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Halt and Catch Fire's character-driven drama culminates in an optimistic ode to the early internet age that's bound to stand the test of time.

Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard star in this adaptation of the popular video game series about a man who uses experimental technology to relive the adventures of his ancestor, a member of a secret order of assassins.

Available now on: FandangoNOW

This week at the movies, we’ve got imperiled would-be thieves (Don’t Breathe, starring Jane Levy and Dylan Minnette), an assassin on the run (Mechanic: Resurrection, starring Jason Statham and Jessica Alba), a legendary pugilist (Hands of Stone, starring Edgar Ramirez and Robert De Niro), and a fateful first date (Southside With You, starring Parker Sawyers and Tika Sumpter). What do the critics have to say?


Don't Breathe (2016) 88%

A trio of teens with ill intentions bust into a blind man’s house. Sounds like the setup for a suitably sleazy home invasion thriller, right? Don’t Breathe delivers, but with a twist: instead of a helpless victim, our would-be thieves stumble upon a guy with unsuspected skills — and a mean streak a mile wide. Maybe it isn’t the stuff Oscars are made of, but critics say the end result is a satisfyingly nasty bit of suspense-filled horror, and one that further establishes director/co-writer Fede Alvarez (reuniting here with his Evil Dead star Jane Levy) as a talented filmmaker who just needs a few ingredients to pack a punch. August has a reputation as a bit of a dumping ground for subpar genre fare, but Don’t Breathe looks like a spine-tingling exception to the rule.


Hands of Stone (2016) 44%

“No más.” Say those words around any serious boxing fan, and they’ll immediately understand you’re making a reference to the landmark 1980 rematch between Sugar Ray Leonard and Roberto Durán in which Durán, defending his WBC championship belt, turned his back on Leonard in the waning moments of the eighth round and uttered those infamous words, yielding the fight. This weekend, Durán gets his biopic due with Hands of Stone, starring Édgar Ramírez as the boxer, Robert De Niro as his trainer Ray Arcel, and Usher as Leonard. Unfortunately, critics say the results don’t quite do Durán’s story justice; reviews describe a fairly standard boxing flick that hits the usual beats, but without sufficient strength of conviction. There’s certainly no shortage of movies that put you in the ring, and ESPN’s 30 for 30 gave this fight a documentary overview with No Más in 2013. Viewers hungry for a cinematic beatdown may wish to seek out one of those options instead.


Southside With You (2016) 92%

It’s exceedingly rare for Hollywood to release a narrative film about a sitting president, and rarer still to see a POTUS-inspired movie that focuses on the personal rather than the political. This weekend’s Southside With You offers a notable exception, starring Parker Sawyers as a young Barack Obama and Tika Sumpter as Michelle Robinson — the woman we now know as the nation’s First Lady. Writer-director Richard Tanne uses his appealing leads to piece together an idea of what the couple’s first date might have looked like, and critics say the results should be entertaining for anyone who appreciates a good walking-and-talking cinematic romance, regardless of where they sit along the political aisle. We all know where the Obamas went after the evening we witness in Southside With You, but the reviews argue it’s still well worth it to witness the start of their journey.


Mechanic: Resurrection (2016) 30%

The Mechanic earned a middling critical response in 2011, but enough people turned out to watch Jason Statham star in a remake of the 1972 Charles Bronson action thriller that we’ve got ourselves a sequel this week. Unfortunately, The Mechanic: Resurrection didn’t screen for critics, so you know what that means — it’s time to play Guess the Tomatometer!


What’s Hot on TV

Gomorrah: Season 1 (2014) 95%

Gomorrah brings a refreshing twist to a familiar story, with its realistic, unglamorous and often riveting portrayal of a Neapolitan crime organization.


Halt and Catch Fire: Season 3 (2016) 96%

Halt and Catch Fire finds its footing in an optimistic third season that builds on the fascinating relationship between a pair of emerging protagonists.


Better Late Than Never: Season 1 (2016) 80%

Better Late Than Never‘s wayward travelers offer up enough personality and surprisingly sincere moments to buoy the show’s all too familiar shenanigans.
