Thoughts on 'Sort Of,' 'Willow,' the return of 'Slow Horses,' and a best-of-2022 request
Digressions? on TV's Top 5? In THIS economy?!
Station 11. Only show I told everyone I knew to watch.
Better Call Saul--the perfect end to a great show.
For All Mankind. Totally biased because I’m a historian whose first pre-grad school job was a brief stint in the NASA history office. Love the alt-history and the generational drama.
The Bear. Kinetic, hilarious and ultimately quite moving. Everything I want from TV.
I just don't watch TV "live" anymore, it's not my life -- but I did for Better Call Saul. - SDB
Damn that’s so hard. I LOVED a lot of TV this year, but I think the one that sticks with me all these months later is Severance.
I had it down to mythic quest, she-hulk, the boys, and better call saul...but i couldn't pick one...BCS is probably the best, but ask me on any given day and my preference for which one of those 4 I enjoyed and looked forward to the most and you're gonna get a different answer...so I abstain
Interview with the Vampire by far! Nothing else even came close.
Lots of stuff I still need to watch, but of what I did watch, "Bad Sisters"! It's so wonderfully, darkly funny. I've been a big fan of Sharon Horgan's since "Pulling," Eve Hewson was a revelation, and Claes Bang was one of the most hate-able villains I've ever seen . And the soundtrack had me leaping for Shazam constantly. Just great stuff.
It definitely wouldn't be my favourite show, but my opinion of Peacemaker has only grown since it came out this winter. I don't think it's capital 'G' great like I think Gunn's Marvel work has been, but it's probably the show I've been the most disappointed to not see on many best-of lists. Feels very in-line with Danny McBride's television work if that appeals to anyone.
I'm going with Reservation Dogs, which made room for a hilarious one-off episode (2x5, Wide Net, a.k.a. Aunties Trip) but still built to the lovely S2 finale. I won't soon forget the image of the Dogs embracing Daniel on the beach.
Reservation Dogs. Nothing better on TV right now. It's superb.
