Stranger Things, Star Trek: Discovery, The Walking Dead (Netflix; CBS All Access; AMC)

Fall TV 2017 is done, and The Good Place has triumphed — at least, by straight Tomatometer score. We’ve updated our fall TV by Tomatometer scorecard each week all season, registering every new season and TV movie (starting September 1) that got at least 10 critic reviews.

The Good Place took the top spot with a 100% Tomatometer score on 28 reviews. It’s worth noting, however, that Alias Grace, the Margaret Atwood adaptation from Netflix, has a 99% score on 69 reviews — significantly more reviews than the 13-review average of the 20 series boasting a 100% final score for the season.

So while The Good Place is perched atop the list by straight Tomatometer score, it comes in fourth after Alias Grace, Mudbound, and Stranger Things by adjusted Tomatometer score, which takes into account the number of reviews that make up the final score. Season 1 of Mindhunter rounds out the top 5, proving Netflix’s dominance over fall TV by adjusted Tomatometer.

Inhumans: Season 1 (2017)
11%

#107
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Marvel's Inhumans sets a new low standard for the MCU with an unimaginative narrative, dull design work, weak characters, and disengaging soapy melodrama.

9JKL: Season 1 (2017)
19%

#106
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Irritatingly uninspired, 9jkl leaves its talented cast out in the cold.

#105
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: An odd jumble of campiness and sincerity, homage and satire, The Orville never quite achieves liftoff.

Valor: Season 1 (2017)
21%

#104
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.

#103

Bright (2017)
27%

#103
Adjusted Score: 35156%
Critics Consensus: Bright tries to blend fantasy, hard-hitting cop drama, and social commentary -- and ends up falling painfully short of the mark on all three fronts.
Synopsis: In an alternate present day, humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time. Two police... [More]
Directed By: David Ayer

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.

Neo Yokio: Season 1 (2017)
52%

#101
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Lacking an interesting plot or stimulating social commentary, Neo Yokio is a missed opportunity bound to bore or befuddle casual viewers and frustrate hardcore anime fans.

The Brave: Season 1 (2017)
42%

#100
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.

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

#99
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite a commanding, charming performance from Shemar Moore, S.W.A.T. remains a simple procedural overrun with clichés.

Dynasty: Season 1 (2017)
49%

#98
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.

#97
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: South Park delivers an uncharacteristically stilted season that feels timid in its satire and unsure of who or what it's lampooning.

Damnation: Season 1 (2017)
64%

#96
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Damnation's complex character driven mystery is intriguing, though it occasionally feels like homework.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Ten Days in the Valley's instantly tense delivery of familiar material leads to an intriguing character study and engrossing mystery despite naggingly untapped potential.

#94
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Jay Pharoah proves he's leading man material even if White Famous' satirical indictments of Hollywood -- though at times irreverent -- often feel outdated.

#93
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.

#92
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Though perhaps a little uninspired, The Halcyon exercises well-worn period tropes with style, and its solid cast makes for watchable company.

#91
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Knightfall will appeal to fans of medieval stories who prefer historical drama and palace intrigue to soapy, melodramatic twists.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: A rocky start can't keep The Punisher from pushing the boundaries of Marvel's TV universe with a fresh take on the comics-derived action thriller.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Breezily entertaining, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World relies on its likable lead to carry its still-sketchy premise, hinting at deeper potential that's yet to develop.

Kyra Sedgwick returns to television on ABC’s Ten Days in the Valley. The Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning former star of The Closer plays Jane Sadler, a documentarian trying her hand as the showrunner on a scripted TV drama, whose daughter disappears one night when Jane is writing in her little cottage out behind her Los Angeles home.

Sedgwick told Rotten Tomatoes that the No. 1 thing that drew her to Ten Days in the Valley is the fact that it is being produced almost solely by women.

“Honestly, I have to say that one of the main reasons I took the show is because of [creator] Tassie Cameron and all the women at Skydance, the studio that produces the show. They’re all women, and I’m really a firm believer that I can’t just sit around and go, ‘Women don’t get enough work.’ I have to put my money and my reputation where my mouth is and actually sign on to do a show with a female showrunner and a studio where the TV side is all women, so that was a big part of it for me.”



But behind the scenes isn’t the only way Sedgwick and the show support women. The show itself is an exploration of what it means to be a successful woman and mother in today’s world. Sedgwick said that she was drawn to Jane as both a woman and a mother, because too often career women who also have children are unfairly pressured to be all things to all people.

“I love someone who is as contradictory on the surface as Jane is, she’s a real truth-teller who’s just a big liar,” Sedgwick said. “I love that we’re sort of controversial right away, right off the bat … I thought it was a chance to explore motherhood and the archetypal guilt that comes with motherhood, that inherent ‘I’m never good enough’ and society telling you you’re not good enough.

“I think society is so ready to shame women in general,” she said, “but throw in being a mother, being a successful person who is also trying to be a mother, throw in the fact that she uses drugs to get through the day, throw in the fact that she’s sexually exploring and not ashamed of her sexuality, and you’ve got a real brew of possible slut-shaming and all sorts of judgment that can happen, and I love being in everyone’s face about that. We need to talk about these expectations and talk about how punishing and impossible they are, and how unrealistic they are and see someone struggling with them. I love that we tackle that.”

Sedgwick’s character is definitely not short on complications in her life — and the drug use becomes particularly problematic. When her daughter goes missing, Jane is drinking wine, using drugs and working outside of her home in a separate building, listening to her daughter via baby monitor, so Jane is not the most reliable narrator, which is kind of the point.

“That’s one of the main things we’re playing with in the show, is the idea of truth and whose truth and narrative, and who’s in control of your narrative?” Sedgwick said. “You think you are, but really you’re not. There is a certain amount of us controlling our own narratives in the world because I don’t want you to see how scared I am all the time. I love the idea that we’re exploring that with many of these characters, but especially with Jane. So I definitely would say I think you’re right, I don’t know if she is a totally reliable narrator.”

Obviously there is a big mystery at the core of Ten Days in the Valley, but viewers shouldn’t worry that it will drag on for season after season. The show’s creators have already revealed that season 1 will wrap up the mystery surrounding Jane’s daughter and provide a good jumping-off point for if the show is renewed. Sedgwick also told us that the show won’t shift focus to anyone else — she’s all in for a (hopefully) long run.

“I am all in for a few years, if the show gets renewed, yes,” she said, adding that when she agreed to do the show she had to assume it would run multiple seasons. “You can never assume it’s going to only go one year, you have to assume it’s going to keep going — even though many [shows] don’t, you have to assume.”

And one thing Sedgwick is definitely interested should the show get renewed is trying her hand at directing an episode. This past summer, she directed her first project, a TV movie called Story of a Girl starring both her husband, Kevin Bacon, and her daughter, Sosie Bacon. Sedgwick said she then pounded the pavement in Hollywood looking for a directing gig.

“I just did what they call the ‘water-bottle tour’ and went to every network and sat with them and said, ‘I really want to direct.’ So yeah, I’ve been out there begging [laughs], and I would love to direct Ten Days in the Valley if we go to a second season,” Sedgwick said.

But when it comes to this season, what can viewers look forward to?

“The plot thickens,” Sedgwick teased. “I think it gets more and more complex, it gets more and more surprising. Nothing is cut and dried, nothing is, ‘Oh, it’s definitely this person.’ It gets very complicated and has a bigger stage to it … You’re not supposed to think that there’s someone we can totally trust all the time. I want viewers always to be like, ‘I don’t know… I thought this and now I’m not sure.’”

The series also stars Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Detective Bird, Erika Christensen as Ali, Kick Gurry as Pete, Felix Solis as Gomez, Josh Randall as Tom, Malcolm-Jamal Warner as Matt, Francois Battiste as Gus, and Abigail Pniowsky as Lake.

Ten Days in the Valley premieres Sunday, October 1 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
