Although you might think it is quite difficult doing a critical analysis of each episode, it is simpler than you think. First, watch the episode twice to make sure you get the whole thing. Next, watch it as many times as you have categories for reviewing. For example, watch it once so that you can rate the plot, then again so that you can take note of the direction, and so on. Some people can do this all at the same time with one viewing, but I find it best to watch an episode 3-4 times before writing a review. That way there are less likely to be mistakes.

My categories:

  • Direction: How interestingly is it shot?
  • Plot: Does the storyline move in a smooth way?
  • Music: Does the score complement the action?
  • Wittiness: How many good lines are there?
  • Action: How much action does the episode contain?
  • Introduction/Tag (if any): Do we get the impression of being involved right from the word go?
  • Cars/Sets/Locations: Do we have any interesting cars? How well designed are the interiors? How much location filming is there?

Each of these is given a score out of five, with a space for overall impression at the bottom, where I make my final comments, add some interesting details, and give the episode an overall rating on a scale of one to ten.
