    Amazon’s “Tales from the Loop” is officially moving over from limited to drama (Rebecca Hall, Jonathan Pryce).

    Imagine saying  Colman was bad while supporting Aniston with her SNL sketch level performance, she was literally a caricature of a “DONT F WITH ME” performance 😂

    Since people have been ranting on a lot about critic’s scores I thought I’d rank the top 13 in order of critic’s scores (for fun, I’m not saying this is how the Emmy race will turn out!).

    Rotten Tomatoes

    1. Better Call Saul, Season 5 (99%)
    2. Pose, Season 2 (97%)
    3. Succession, Season 2 (97%)
    4. Ozark, Season 3 (96%)
    5. The Crown, Season 3 (90%)
    6. This is Us, Season 4 (90%)
    7. Stranger Things, Season 3 (89%)
    8. Big Little Lies, Season 2 (85%)
    9. Killing Eve, Season 3 (85%)
    10. Westworld, Season 2 (84%)
    11. The Outsider, Season 1 (82%)
    12. The Handmaid’s Tale, Season 3 (81%)
    13. The Morning Show, Season 1 (61%)

    Things to Note :

    • Better Call Saul, The Crown and Ozark’s critics scores are their highest for any of their seasons.
    • Pose and Succession’s RT critics scores are higher than their previous seasons. Succession’s being significantly higher.
    • Big Little Lies’s critics score is 8 points lower than for it’s first season.
    • Killing Eve, The Handmaid’s Tale, Stranger Things, This is Us and Westworld’s critics scores are their worst for any of their seasons.

    Metacritic

    1. Better Call Saul (92)
    2. Succession (89)
    3. The Crown (84)
    4. Big Little Lies (82)
    5. Pose (79)
    6. Ozark (77)
    7. Stranger Things (72)
    8. The Outsider (69)
    9. The Handmaid’s Tale (68)
    10. Killing Eve (67)
    11. Westworld (64)
    12. The Morning Show (61)

    FYC Emmys : Jodie Comer ("Killing Eve"), Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials"), Russell Tovery ("Years and Years"), Helena Bonham Carter ("The Crown") & The Crown, His Dark Materials, Years and Years, Succession and The Affair in all categories. The Politician : Ben Platt, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bette Midler and Judith Light.

    I ADORE Pose, but I feel like critics gave it a pass for S2 that I don’t quite get. They’re so quick to bash a show because of minor BTS drama (I’m referring to BLL S2), but Pose S2 has numerous issues in its structure and storytelling techniques that I feel like they glossed over. I still loved it, simply because it’s just such an enjoyable watch, but I feel like critics were almost scared to say anything negative about it because of its subject matter – and how that would appear if they did. And that’s a shame. Obviously I don’t know if this is the case – they might have very well loved it – but it just seems off.

    Emmys FYC - "Unbelievable" and "The Handmaid's Tale" in all categories; Viola Davis in Best Drama Actress for the final season of "HTGAWM;" "Ozark:" Drama Series, Laura Linney (Best Actress) and Julia Garner (Best Supporting Actress)

    I tend to put less stock in critical reception when it comes to the Emmys, compared to say film critics in driving what films to take stock in for the Oscars. For me, it comes down to audience reception. Critics do their part in driving buzz, especially for new shows, but they aren’t the defining be all end all barometer for a show’s awards prospects/success.

    Absolutely agreed, Pose S2 could’ve benefit so much if it was a 7-8 episode season instead of a 10 episode season. The entire benefit cabaret episode was completely pointless to the overall narrative (outside of Blanca & Frederica’d salon, which could’ve been in extra 4-7 minutes of another episodes).

    BBL did have some structural story issues (whatever happened to Kathryn Newton going to college and Madeleine’s “I DON’T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT HOMELESS PEOPLE” plot that went absolutely nowhere) but thrashing it got in the second have was absolutely backstage politics at play.

    The only flaw in the final episode was that abysmal final scene. Ambiguous endings are one thing, but they have to make sense in the context of characters and no amount of Willie Nelson is gonna change that.

    RT avg critics ratings are more accurate representation of acclaim than percent scores IMO. Here they go:

    1. Succession (8.99)
    2. Better Call Saul (8.83)
    3. The Crown (8.54)*
    4. Pose (8.25)*
    5. Ozark (7.89)
    6. Stranger Things (7.87)*
    7. Big Little Lies (7.7)
    8. The Outsider (7.39)*
    9. Westworld (7.32)*
    10. This is Us (7.25)
    11. Killing Eve (7.02)*
    12. The Handmaid’s Tale (6.92)*
    13. The Morning Show

    Succession is the most acclaimed of the bunch and if we consider only top critics, then its 9.6 is almost untouchable. The asterisk ones are those in which the top critics avg rating is less. The biggest decline here is for Killing Eve (5.33 with top critics). Big Little Lies has the biggest increase in avg rating with top critics, from 7.7 to 8.59, which actually makes it third, after Succession and BCS so we can drop this it isn’t acclaimed or critics started hating on it after that Arnold stuff.

    That doesn’t make sense. If they were really afraid of dragging it they wouldn’t have praised it more than they did for s1.

    Not some of y’all being purposely blind on the fact that The Handmaid’s Tale isn’t happening this year.

    There isn’t enough alternatives to take it down.

    It is facing ten other incumbent series nominees. There are arguments against it, but that is not one.

    It has WGA + SAG Ensemble noms.

    There isn’t strong evidence to support a prediction for The Morning ShowThis Is Us has started to show signs of waning actors support, Stranger Things (my #8) could be a reasonable replacement but it has shown weaker below the line support compared to The Handmaid’s Tale when it shouldn’t have plus it has less support from actors and finally, Killing Eve at it’s peak had as much support as The Handmaid’s Tale at it’s weakest, and it’s initial reviews for the new season aren’t helping.

    I can’t drop Westworld  for similar reasons but also because, even though it’s weak at SAG, it has gotten significantly more acting nominations than Stranger Things (my next in line) at the Emmys (and a win!)
