I find that ratings can be a tricky thing, so instead of giving you numbers for you to interpret, I’m going to be more straightforward:

Marathon it now! – This drama is one of my all-time favorites. If you haven’t seen it already, you need to fortify yourself with some snacks and prepare to spend every available moment watching.

Bump it up your watch list. – Chances are you’ve heard about this one and have it on your I-need-to-try-this list because you think it sounds interesting. Trust me, you’re going to want to move it toward the head of the line.

Check it out on a slow day. – There’s nothing really spectacular here, but if you’re a fan of the genres, tropes, and/or actors, you could give it a shot, especially if you don’t mind skipping anything that bores you.

I would advise against it. – You’re going to have to dig through a lot of garbage to get to the good stuff and/or the show makes a mess of everything in the home stretch in particularly infuriating ways. Really, don’t bother with it, it’s not worth it.

I’ve already suffered—why should you? – I want every hour I spent watching and every moment I ranted about this show back. You owe me at least that much for enduring this, universe.

I only give ratings to shows I have completed. You can also check out my current recommendations list, broken down by genre, if you know what you’re in the mood for.
