We’re updating this countdown every Monday with new scores and critics responses, so say goodbye to being stuck with bad binges this season!


Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The visibly low-budget Hunters unsuccessfully searches for a well-executed plot in a forest of common tropes and cheap clichés.

Rosewood: Season 1 (2015)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Rosewood comes up anything but roses with a poorly written, ill-paced, and overall insubstantial entry in the crowded procedural genre.
Directed By: Todd Harthan

Heartbeat: Season 1 (1992)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Heartbeat is a Frankensteined drama made up of hospital genre cliches and unlikable characters, though the cases-of-the-week are sporadically interesting.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Beyond Borders relies on the same characters and storylines the franchise has used for years, with an extra undertow of xenophobic paranoia.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Second Chance boasts a few interesting ideas and Robert Kazinsky's game performance, but there aren't enough functioning parts in what's ultimately yet another mediocre take on the Frankenstein myth.

Crowded: Season 1 (2016)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: A talented cast is left with no room to flourish in Crowded, a misfire whose dated feel is compounded by a pronounced lack of laughs.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: After the initial dose of nostalgia, Fuller House has little to offer to anyone except the original series' most diehard fans.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus:

Dice: Season 1 (2016)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Dice man is back with a few surprisingly funny guest stars, but they're not enough to salvage a series of unfunny storylines.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Bordertown's controversy-rich premise is an idea disappointingly ill-served by its execution, which repeatedly mistakes crass, desperate gags for topical humor.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Of Kings and Prophets tries to add a Game of Thrones-inspired spin to the Old Testament, but ends up an aimless muddle.

Flaked: Season 1 (2016)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Dull and pointless, Flaked makes it uncomfortably clear that the man-child persona is no longer compelling.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Those Who Can't is sporadically funny, but its attempts at light-hearted comedy are undone by derivative writing and a crude, somewhat depressing tone.

Rebellion: Season 1 (2016)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus:

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Banish thee from the airwaves, oh Angel from Hell, for sins of commonplace sitcom triteness and obnoxious use of an iconic comedic lead.
