Wow, wait a sec, that list is in random order of appearance.

Well, the idea of the thread is to rank the shows we've watched.

I'd rather go with a selection of my favorites and not rank them no.1, 2 etc.

Even though that's not what the thread is about, what with it title being "Rank your TV shows throughout the year"...

While I much prefer if people did rank their shows, no such rule will be enforced.

Carry on.

Then it should be a different thread, since this doesn't really quantify it that well. We aren't counting all the time we spent watching shows that did not air in 2017. I watched several shows from earlier years that I hadn't gotten to before.

Maybe there should be a thread "List all the TV shows you've watched this year".

These are all 2017 seasons

1. Game of thrones - love it every season. There were some missteps as with every show/movie. I have seen every episode of S7 at least twice. Love this damn show. Overall I've seen Hardhomme, Watchers on the Wall and Battle of the Bastards at least 5 times each.

2. Westworld - loved it

3. Big little lies - Thought this was damn good and not the type of show i normally watch

4. Stranger things - good 2nd season

5. Better call Saul - Hope next season is all Saul and no Jimmy

6. Legion - Thought this was one of the best new shows by far

7. Leftovers - I was glad it ended, and did it well

8. Big bang theory - Always a favorite

9. Silicon Valley - maybe one more season?

10. The Walking dead - It dragged out for a few episodes but all in all a good season for me

11. Survivor - Always a favorite for me

1-11 are must see for me.

12. The Gifted - holds promise

13. The Duece - Had some interesting stuff but not great

14. Vikings - I want to like it more than I actually do?

15. The Punisher - Actually was pretty good

16. Sense8 - not nearly as interesting as S1

17. Young Sheldon - growing on me

18. Sneaky Pete - was pretty good, will watch S2

12-18 not looked forward to each week or binged but still good.

19. Friends from college - likely will not watch another season

20. GLOW - will not watch another season

21. Ballers - needs to get better

22. Kevin can wait - just watching because it's set to record and it's sometimes funny

23. Designated Survivor - hard to watch this season

24. House of Cards - painful to watch and happy as hell it's almost over. Never was as good as S1

25. Taboo - man i was hyped for this show and it was tedius!

26. Inhumans - just stupid. watched like two and a half episodes.

Are we really going to be literal about this? We are here to discuss, recommend and exchange opinions regarding TV we watch. Yes, ideally, people should rank the shows, but the more importantly, this is a place to discuss TV. That is really how I get this thread?

Regardless of that, what this thread most certainly is not about discussion what this thread is about ;)

Are we being all pedantic about this now in general, or just in response to individual posts where people claim a show was from year X and needs to be corrected for The Greater Good?

no. I was pointing out what I assumed was a genuine mistake because @dbunting said “2017 Seasons” so I assumed he thought Westworld was last year. Wasn’t trying to be pedantic, there was no thought to any greater good :rolleyes: Just trying to be helpful but nevermind I won’t bother in future

Nope, I was catching up on this thread, haven't been here in like 6 months and I saw other people post Westworld and I just assumed it was 2017! No biggie to me

13RW is something I really wanted to see for a long time. And when I finally watched it this week, it was probably the first unbingeable Netflix drama. It took me a whole week to finish it. The topic is truly serious, the cast did its work perfectly, but there wasn't emotional investment by my part (as I would have expected). It's still a good drama, just not my cup of tea.

I didn't know we were still doing this - that we could revise our lists of 2017 shows even though we're finishing them/watching them in 2018. Is there any cut-off date - I intend to watch some other shows released in 2017 that I didn't get to see then (like Dark or Godless, probably 13 Reasons Why as well), how long can we keep revising the list?

My new list - adding Twin Peaks, which I finally finished a few days ago (I had to rewatch before I finished to remember and pick up all the hundreds of characters and plot threads), plus I've reshuffled the list a bit.

  1. BoJack Horseman 
  2. The Leftovers
  3. Black Sails
  4. The Handmaid’s Tale
  5. Big Little Lies
  6. Agents of SHIELD
  7. The Good Place
  8. American Gods
  9. The Americans
  10. The Punisher
  11. The Expanse
  12. The Last Kingdom
  13. Legion
  14. Twin Peaks: The Return - I'm not sure how I feel about it, so it ends up in the middle of the list. It certainly took chances, kudos for that, instead of playing it safe like some other 1990s show revivals. Some things have paid off, some arc closed, but others were pretty unsatisfactory, and although it resolved some arcs, it introduced major new ones and big new questions. The open ending is especially a problem if they really don't intend another season.
  15. Broadchurch
  16. The Gifted
  17. Outlander
  18. South Park
  19. Runaways
  20. Absentia 
  21. Star Trek: Discovery 
  22. Gunpowder
  23. The Defenders
  24. Taboo
  25. Iron Fist
  26. The Walking Dead
  27. Inhumans

Well, given that we all agreed we will not include past year's shows onto new lists, I thought updating it here. I am not sure whether I have any more shows for this list, but if I watch them, I will update. 

I recommend Godless. I fell in love with Michelle Dockery all over again :D 

As for 13RW, I have some serious issues with it. It is one of those shows that could have been one of the GREATS, but simply isn't. It is not bad, far from it and Kate Walsh is amazing in it, but it's just not what I expected.
