A-GRADE SHOWS

1. Why this List?

So many of you have requested this, so here it is, finally.

Here’s a list of all the A-graded shows that I’ve written about on this site. I’ve included helpful little labels next to each show, to indicate the type of post it is.

The handy-dandy breakdown:

[Full Review] = Lengths will vary, but each contains a Short, Long & Final Verdict

[Flash Review] = Quick, short, spoiler-lite reviews.

2. The Rating System

I hope you guys find this list useful!
