Ranking The TV We Watched in 2017

What an absolute treasure of a year for television. I struggled so badly to put this list together. And after talking with Jenn about her list we both really struggled with the top ten area of the list. What I found so interesting about this year's list is how many of our favorites dropped to the bottom of our list. I'm looking at you Veep, Silicon Valley, Orange is the New Black and Red Oaks. Luckily there were so many amazing new shows this year like The Handmaid's Tale, Big Little Lies, and Sneaky Pete.

Ranking The TV We Watched in 2016

Last year Jenn and I started a new annual tradition to write up and rank our favorite shows of the year. It began with 18 shows last year and ballooned out a little this year to 24 for me and 21 for Jenn. This list does not include the multitude of political shows we watch (Last Week Tonight, The Daily Show, Real Time with Bill Maher, and Full Frontal) or reality shows (The Amazing Race and Top Chef). This list only includes scripted shows where we completed at least a season in the year.

TV Review: Silicon Valley Season 3

It's probably no surprise to any one that knows me that I love HBO's Silicon Valley. I'm someone that will sit down and watch not only Apple but Google, Microsoft and Tesla press conferences when they announce new products. I love watching tech moguls like Tim Cook, Elon Musk and the like do interviews and learn more about their roads to where they are now. But what I love even more about the tech industry now is that every day there's a new app or piece of hardware that may change the world. In a nutshell Silicon Valley is a comedic look at the amazing, weird, and often nonsensical world of tech.

TV Review: Veep Season 5

The best part of Jenn and my TV watching year is between the months of April and June. Those are the months where HBO for the last couple of years has had four of our favorite shows all happening in one night. Those shows include Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, Last Week Tonight and Veep. I've written about all of those shows before except for Veep. Although it usually is mentioned in our favorite things of each year I've yet to actually write about a season.

TV Review: Game of Thrones Season 6

For the past five years Game of Thrones has been the pinnacle of television. That's saying something as this is considered the golden age of television. There are so many great choices on services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime that its a little surprising that HBO has been able to keep its level so high with shows like Game of Thrones. The sixth season of one of Jenn and my favorite shows just wrapped up and I would argue its better then ever.
