Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 89%

Description: “Life in the garage swerves off track for a NASCAR crew chief and his tight-knit racing team when a new boss steps in and shakes things up.”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 17%

What critics said: “The cast is charming enough, tackling their roles with an understated kind of ease rather than the exaggeration present in so many other sitcoms … But the characterizations aren’t enough to make up for the fact that The Crew just isn’t that funny.” — AV Club (season one)

7. "Tribes of Europa" (Netflix original, 2021-present)

Description: “In post-apocalyptic Europe, amid wars among microstates, three siblings fight for survival as a greater threat looms over the continent.”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 83%

6. "Cocomelon" (YouTube, 2020-present)

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 48%

What critics said: “Berlinger somewhat overdoes it with the creepy dramatic re-enactments, but Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel benefits from a raft of solid talking heads and a central whodunit that proves continually intriguing.” — Daily Beast

4. "Firefly Lane" (Netflix original, 2021-present)

Description: “Best friends Tully and Kate support each other through good times and bad with an unbreakable bond that carries them from their teens to their 40s.”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 46%

What critics said: “Firefly Lane has more of an edge than its gentle, ethereal title might suggest, a brittle darkness stalking the goofy plot developments and occasionally groan-inducing writing.” — Vanity Fair (season one)

3. "iCarly" (Nickelodeon, 2007-2012)

Description: “A cyberstar is born when 13-year-old Carly creates an Internet series with a little help from her best friend Sam and neighbor Freddie.”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: N/A

What critics said: “As the plausibility of the set-piece disappears, iCarly leaves with a goodbye that is sweet without being noxious and self-referential without being a long inside joke.” — AV Club (season five)

2. "Good Girls" (NBC, 2018-present)

Description: “Three suburban moms orchestrate a local grocery store heist to escape financial ruin and establish independence — together.”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 87%

What critics said: “That was a fun season premiere and a great set-up for the rest of the season. It felt like the calm before the proverbial crap storm that is sure to blow in.” — TV Fanatic (season three)

1. "Behind Her Eyes" (Netflix original, 2021)

Description: “A single mother enters a world of twisted mind games when she begins an affair with her psychiatrist boss while secretly befriending his mysterious wife.”

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 59%

What critics said: “I like a good twist, but the twist in Behind Her Eyes is a groaner. The series switches genres, and the final chapter felt to me like a slap in the face — when it didn’t make me laugh out loud at the absurdity.” — Boston Globe
