    Not only does BB have the highest Metacritic score the possible Drama Series nominees, but it has the highest Metacritic for any series in the site’s history.

    I love Metacritic, but it needs to be noted for any casual readers that the site is designed for films.  “Metascores” for television seasons are based on whatever episodes the series sends out to critics in advance of the season airing, except in the very rare cases when a site reviews the show later and Metacritic adds that score in.  Which meant this year:

    6/7 episodes: Downton Abbey
    5/12 episodes: Boardwalk Empire
    5/13 episodes: Hannibal
    4/8 episodes: Da Vinci’s Demons
    4/9 episodes: Vikings
    4/10 episodes: Game of Thrones
    4/10 episodes: The Newsroom
    3/8 episodes: Breaking Bad
    3/10 episodes: Bates Motel
    3/15 episodes: The Following
    2/12 episodes: Homeland
    2/13 episodes: Mad Men
    2/13 episodes: Justified
    2/13 episodes: The Americans
    2/13 episodes: House of Cards
    2/16 episodes: The Walking Dead
    2/22 episodes: The Good Wife

    Tom forgot to include Nashville (84), which sent just 1/21 episodes to critics.  Dexter sent 3/12 episodes.

    There is no one single database.  I just went to the reviews; the
    critics usually say at some point, “Based on the three episodes that
    were made available” or something along those lines.

    It is also worth noting that critics tend to review series that they
    have seen before with past seasons in mind, so risks will be viewed
    skeptically in new shows and rewarded in older shows.  Here are the
    first-season scores for the non-first season shows above.

    92 Downton Abbey
    91 Homeland
    88 Boardwalk Empire
    82 The Walking Dead
    81 Justified
    79 Game of Thrones
    77 Mad Men
    77 Dexter
    76 The Good Wife
    74 Breaking Bad
