The 50 Best TV Seasons of the 2010s, According to the TomatometerWe re celebrating the best TV of the decade with a look at the top-scoring seasons of 2010–2019, according to the Tomatometer. The second season of Phoebe Waller-Bridge s Fleabag takes the top spot, but don t feel bad for season 1; it appears at No. 1 our list. Fellow Amazon Prime series Catastrophe, from creators Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney, tops the list for number of total seasons on the list with three of its four seasons Certified Fresh at 100% on the Tomatometer placing at Nos. 14, 15, and 25. Netflix title Master of None is the only show with two seasons in the top 10.All of the seasons are Certified Fresh at 100%, by the way. We re showing 50 here, but there are a total of 94 TV seasons from the decade that have 100% Certified Fresh scores. We ranked them according to the number of reviews each had at the season level. Fleabag season 2, for instance, has 95 season-level reviews with Insecure season 1 hot on its heels with 94 reviews. Meanwhile, season 2 of anthology series Fargo, which starred Patrick Wilson and Kirsten Dunst, has a total of 230 reviews total across the season and 10 episodes, but only 58 at the season level, and so the title appears lower on the list. But getting episode-level reviews is an accomplishment in itself; most shows don t get enough reviews on each episode to get episodic scores.Broad City and Jane the Virgin — girl power! — have the most seasons in the top 200 seasons of the decade with four each. Fan favorite Breaking Bad is represented twice, while Cobra Kai, which surprised audiences with its 100% Tomatometer score last year is at No. 11. The highest-ranked superhero series is Marvel s Agents of Shield season 3. Meanwhile, some incredible TV seasons – many of Game of Thrones’, the current season of Watchmen – missed the list, because of just a few dissenting reviews.Read on to find out which titles placed in the best TV of the decade.Which is your favorite 100% Certified Fresh season of TV?

(Photo by Universal / courtesy Everett Collection)All Brendan Fraser Movies, Ranked by TomatometerLike a defrosted caveman, Brendan Fraser arrived out of nowhere when he starred as the titular Encino Man in 1992. The Paleolithic cult movie is a prototypical 90s comedy: It s broad, goofy, and Pauly Shore is never more than 10 feet away off-camera. Airheads and George of the Jungle were more in that 90s style, while 1998 s Gods and Monsters showed off Fraser s range. (Though School Ties, released the same year as Encino Man, had already proven some dramatic chops.) The Mummy turned Fraser into an international star, with the 1999 blockbuster remembered fondly today.But flops began to mount (Monkeybone, Dudley Do-Right, Looney Tunes: Back in Action), and though Fraser was in Best Picture-winner Crash, so was half of Hollywood. Even The Mummy unraveled: The box office returns for Returns were good, but the Rachel Weisz-less Tomb of the Dragon Emperor bombed, killing the franchise in 2008. By 2010, we were witnessing Fraser getting blasted by skunks in Furry Vengeance and yelling Miley Cyrus! as an expletive. After 2013 s Gimme Shelter, Fraser seemed to be no longer cast in movies.At the end of the decade, Fraser s voice was being heard again. He was Robotman in DC Comics series Titans. Well-received by fans, Robotman got upgraded to main status in spin-off Doom Patrol. Along with a recurring role in The Affair s third season, Fraser s re-appearance made audiences wonder about the likable, genial actor s long absence. The question was answered in a 2018 GQ interview, where Fraser alleges he was sexually assaulted in 2003 by Philip Berk, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and was subsequently blacklisted by the industry for speaking out.From this revelation (and more, like a contentious divorce, surgeries from doing stunt work, and the death of his mother), Fraser has emerged as a populist figure in the celebrity world, one whose fans are drawn to because of his survival through mistreatment and struggle. Like Britney Spears (whose conservatorship battle is documented in Framing Britney Spears), Fraser was once mocked and laughed at, but is now generating easy and eager goodwill after cultural re-examination of victimhood and predatory showbiz behavior. Directors seem glad Fraser s around again: Steven Soderbergh put him on-screen in No Sudden Move, Fraser s first Certified Fresh movie in 17 years. And the comeback continues with his casting in Darren Aronofsky s The Whale and Martin Scorsese s Killers of the Flower Moon.Now, we re ranking all Brendan Fraser movies by Tomatometer!
Best-Reviewed Directorial Debuts 2020The sight of an established performer making the leap into the director s seat is catnip for any movie fan. This year s ascending star: Regina King, who helmed One Night in Miami, depicting the meeting of titanic Black icons for an incredible 1964 evening. And new directorial voices were seemingly reaching theaters and services every week, keeping cinema fresh in a volatile year. They came with horror breakouts like His House (Remi Weekes); moment-meeting dramas Miss Juneteenth (Channing Godfrey Peoples), Promising Young Woman (Emerald Fennell); and they came ready to move us, as with Sound of Metal (Darius Marder).The order of the rank below reflects the Adjusted Score as of February 28, 2021.
