Posted January 22, 2015 : Annual Best TV List, Benedict Cumberbatch

This is perhaps the longest into a new year I’ve waited to post my tv list. The problem was, is, whatever, that I’m not excited about it. Which is more about the tv shows than about the list itself (we all know I think lists are fun). I sorted through my hulu favorites, as I do each year, and couldn’t convince myself there were 10 shows that good in 2014. And I don’t know if this is a reflection of the state of tv shows or the fact that I’m watching fewer shows so, statistically it’s going to be more […]

A friend asked me this year what my New Years tv marathon would be. I hadn’t really found a good one yet, because I feel like I’ve already seen everything I like. Quite a few times. I’d just finished s5 of Merlin which has been my favorite holiday indulgence for a while so there wasn’t anything left but to put them all on a list and move into the new year. Which is when she suggested Arn: The Knight Templar. It is officially the honorary mention this year. In part because it’s only 6 episodes so it is more of […]

You all know I love talking about tv and trying to convince friends that some previously undiscovered show is secretly brilliant. But this year the tide turned and at least a handful of shows are on the list because someone else convinced me they were worth watching.

Normally I can’t wait to post my annual best tv list. After crossing the threshold with a tv marathon on New Year’s Eve (this year it was White Collar) it’s one of my favorite things to do.

It’s my favorite post of the year! It feels a bit different this year, because I pretty much watched everything on hulu. So, no show had a place in my week or a home on my tv. It was all

I’ve acquiesced to the fact that this is more “tv I loved in 2009” than actually “the best tv of 2009”. But what critic’s list isn’t? You never read, “I hated this show, but damn was it well

I had a hard time coming up with 10 really good shows this year. Chuck almost made it because it’s funny and charming. It just isn’t quite on it’s feet yet, though it continues to improve.

Posted January 9, 2007 : Annual Best TV List

Ok, here’s my top tv shows 2006. I based this not just on whether or not I like the show in general, but specifically on how good it was in 2006. Here we go, the shows you’re probably not watching… 10. Lost. Sadly, this is on the list because I was having a hard time coming up with 10 good shows. Season 1 (we all know) was brilliant. Season 3 I’m watching by default. They’re not covering all of the characters as much or as well and I don’t care that much about the characters that are getting all the […]
