Are you simultaneously terrified and fascinated by the prospect of nuclear war? With two world leaders playing chicken with their respective “end of the world” buttons, it’s a weird time to be alive. But hey, that’s why we have entertainment for!
It’s the end of another the calendar year, which means it’s time for another “Best of” list! As always, I can’t watch everything on TV so the picks below are based solely on my viewing habits and undoubtedly leave out some stellar tv shows and moments. But enough with the obligatory disclaimer, here’s my completely arbitrary picks for the best TV of 2017.
I found TBS’s new show The Guest Book in a roundabout way, but after one episode I was hooked. It features a strong main cast, a sustainable anthology-ish premise, fast paced jokes, and great guest stars. And oh yeah, a really cool “house band” that plays the opening theme song, plus a live song at the end of every episode.
On Tuesday June 27th 2017, Pretty Little Liars will finally bid adieu. And I say “finally” because I feel like I can’t remember my life before the show. What was once a fun guilty pleasure and then an all-out TV obsession has long since turned into an obligation of sorts – I just need to know how it ends. I’m a bitter-ender, damnit!
At some point TBS quietly amassed a solid line-up of original programming. No longer just the home for reruns of Family Guy and The Big Bang Theory, TBS currently boasts a late night talk show, a weekly news satire program, an array of live action single cam comedies, and more.
Even with UnREAL on its resume I still find it hard to trust Lifetime as a go-to destination for quality scripted dramas, but lo and behold they’ve got their hands on another good one with Mary Kills People.
After playing the Full Frontal with Samantha Bee ticket lottery for months, my name was finally drawn for one of their March live tapings. Of course, just like my experience with Last Week Tonight, the tickets opened up last minute, but inconvenience be damned I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity. So off to the city I went, on a weeknight no less.
