was there a particular comment you wanted to cherry pick to illustrate your point? Because on a whole, it doesn't look like that site really supports your point.

Anyone who hasn't watched The Handmaid's Tale needs to watch it. I'm being serious people, watch it

Ratings and reviews are two different things. The Walking Dead has a rating of 8.5. If the name of the director/creator wasn't David Lynch it would have been a low 4 most likely.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4093826/reviews?ref_=tt_urv

Sort by helpfulness and go through a few of them. Out of the first 20 there's 4 reviews higher than a 6 and the overwhelming majority are less than 3's. Keep going and it's apparent than most of the people who watched this show not only didn't find it as good as you did but they actually hated it which was similar to my experience.

I semi-enjoyed the original series but I wish I had stopped after they reveal who the killer was. It all went downhill from there. Twin Peaks is not for everyone. It's a soap opera with a hint of mystery and crime that somehow evolves into a bizzare science fiction show with no set rules. Did I mention that it's dated like hell. I get that it was revolutionary when some people were young and tv sucked but in today's world with all the abundance of great tv (like Young Sheldon and CSI:Miami) nobody should be wasting time watching this.

If you liked season 3 of Twin Peak good for you. But don't pretend like it's not at best a super polarizing show and that whoever didn't enjoy it is an idiot who's not up to your level of intellect.

Finally got around to watching Mindhunter over the past week or so. It was good but it wouldn't crack my top 20. Will watch future seasons/episodes but didn't find it as enticing as our poll here did.

Pretty decent results all things considered. I missed out on the voting entirely. To me, three shows clearly stood out above anything else last year: The Leftovers, Twin Peaks, and The Handmaid's Tale. So glad The Leftovers won though, I love that show so much <3
