Review Guidelines

In this section we’ll give you a brief overview of how everyone’s reviews work.  Each member of the Con Artists delivers his/her own style, so if you’re unsure of where any of us stands, please take a look below.

Captain Scott

I don’t really use a rating system, preferring instead to let my reviews do the talking.  In many cases, I feel that there are too many aspects to games or shows to try and fit everything into one value.  That said, I will usually end with a sentence or two on whether I would recommend the show or not, and why.

First Lieutenant Sushma

I use a star rating system ranging from 1-5 at the end of my reviews.

1 Star – Awful – This show is awful and you should avoid it at all costs. It’s not the fun kind of bad. It’s the “don’t touch it with a 10 foot pole” kind of bad.


2 Stars – Bad – This show is bad and you should avoid it. It made have had one or two redeeming factors but for the most part, it was a poorly constructed show.

3 Stars – Neutral – This show is somewhere in the middle. It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad, so it wasn’t anything special. This rating means I personally put it into mediocre territory, but you should watch it and decide for yourself. There’s a chance you’ll believe it is better or worse that what I think.


4 Stars – Good- You should watch this show. It had a couple of flaws that couldn’t be ignored but overall it was something I’d recommend.

5 Stars – Fantastic – Not sure what you are doing right now, but drop it, and go watch this show. There may be flaws in here but it’s nothing that detracts away from how great I think this show is.

Quartermaster Dan

My rating system is fairly simple. Following the full review, I give a final verdict:

Strongly Recommended – This show is exceptional and should be seen right away.

Recommended – The show is worth your time.

Undecided – The show is mediocre, or did not make a strong impression.

Not Recommended – I did not enjoy the show.

Avoid At All Costs – Reserved for shows that are exceptional bad or offensive.

These are fairly broad categories, so please use them only as general guidelines. I also offer a few significant pros and cons to sum up the show’s strengths and weaknesses. The same system applies to any games I rate as well.
