    Rank your 2018 TV shows throughout the year

    I finished season 3 of The Last Kingdom last night. It was the best season so far, by a large margin. In the first 2 seasons, I really liked the show, but I always felt it was too fast paced. You could really feel they were adapting 2 books in one 8 episode season, both times. Too many events, relationships developed too fast, so sometimes epic events did not have the right emotional weight. For instance, over the course of season 1 was too much. But season 3 was perfectly paced, and even though, apparently, it was again 2 books and not much higher number of episodes (10), it felt like one story. The big moments were much stronger - it certainly helped that so many of them were emotional payoffs and resolutions to many of the major relationships developed since season 1. I'm also moving Daredevil up one place, because the previous ranking was made when I was just halfway through. Season 3 was amazing, even better than season 1, which I never thought would be possible. 1. The Americans (S6) 2. BoJack Horseman (S5) 3. Daredevil (S3) 4. Sharp Objects 5. The Last Kingdom (S3) 6. The Good Place (S2) 7. The Alienist .. 8. Jessica Jones (S2) 9. The 100 (S5) 10. Dietland 11. The Handmaid’s Tale (S2) 12. The Expanse (S3) .. 13. Runaways (S1/S2) 14. Killing Eve (S1) ... 15. Black Lightning (S1/S2a) 16. Agents of SHIELD (S5) 17. Cloak and Dagger (S1) 18. South Park (S22) 19. The Gifted (S1) - I've seen the first 3 episodes of season 2 as well, haven't had time for more 20. Deception 21. Star Trek: Discovery (S1) - but S2 has been much better and will be way higher on the 2019 list 22. Midnight, Texas (S2) . 23. The X-Files (S11)
  2. He is. But there's a Coulson from another universe or timeline. (The most likely answer IMO)

    New list with several shows I've finished last week. I'm still halfway through some shows (Daredevil S3 and Runaways S2), but I'm adding them. Others will be added after the NYE. I'm just 2 episodes into S3 of The Last Kingdom, and haven't had the time to even see any of S4 of Outlander. I've also reshuffled the list a bit. Shows I've added bolded. The best: 1. The Americans (S6) 2. BoJack Horseman (S5) 3. Sharp Objects 4. Daredevil (S3) - I can already out it this high, if it keeps this quality it will at least remain at 4 or go to 3. excellent: 5. The Good Place (S2) 6. The Alienist Now there's a bunch of shows I enjoyed but I'm not sure how to rank. I changed my mind a few times. I decided to push The Expanse down because I've realized, even though it has a really good story, worldbuilding and visuals, I remember very little of S3 - probably because of my low level of investment in the characters. I put a few shows above it that affected me more and were more memorable for me, though they also had some stuff that bothered me. 7. Jessica Jones (S2) 8. The 100 (S5) 9. Dietland 10. The Handmaid’s Tale (S2) 11. The Expanse (S3) .. 12. Killing Eve (S1) - fine but a bit overrated, there's too much hype about it 13. Runaways (S1/S2) - it was on the list, much lower, because S1 ended this year. But having seen 6 episodes, I can already put it much higher. S2 is a big improvement. .. 14. Black Lightning (S1/S2a) - OK with what it does, perfectly average. It's a good divider of the list of things I mostly liked and those I didn't like that much. 15. Agents of SHIELD (S5) - everything after 5x14 was a huge disappointment. And S5 started so well. 16. Cloak and Dagger (S1) 17. South Park (S22) - not as good as the last season 18. The Gifted (S1) - I've seen the first 3 episodes of season 2 as well, haven't had time for more 19. Deception really disappointing/bad stuff: 20. Star Trek: Discovery (S1) 21. Midnight, Texas (S2) - what a huge disappointment season 2 was. I loved season 1. Now i'm far less sad it's cancelled. 22. The X-Files (S11)

    For me, "background watching" is only for shows I don't take too seriously and don't care much about. Like all the DC shows on CW, or random procedurals that happen to be on TV atm. And for really bad shows that you only watch for completism, that's the only way that works. That's how I managed to get through Inhumans, Arrow seasons 3-4, and TWD season 7 and 8a, before I finally dropped it.

    The Americans (S6) BoJack Horseman (S5) Sharp Objects The Good Place (S2/S3) The Alienist The Expanse (S3) Dietland The 100 (S5) Jessica Jones (S2) Black Lightning (S1) Agents of SHIELD (S5) Cloak and Dagger (S1) The Gifted (S1) Runaways (S1) Deception Star Trek: Discovery (S1) The X-Files (S11) How does BoJack Horseman manage to be better and better with each season? People say that about a lot of shows, but in this case, it's true. I didn't think it could top season 4, which was the best season of any show in 2017, but season 5 is even better. Although season 4 had a few more brilliant individual episodes, season 5 was more consistent and had a really strong overall narrative. And was amazingly meta and criticizing itself, while also poking fun and satirizing so many things in its hilarious and witty way, as it always does. I reshuffled the list slightly and put The 100 over Jessica Jones. Both season 2 of JJ and season 5 of The 100 have been criticized a lot, but I liked them both. In the end, I think I prefer The 100 season 5 because its highs were higher, though its lows were lower. Meanwhile, The Good Place continues to be amazing, and stays where it was with its first part of season 3 (the next episode is in 2019). Not all the episodes were as good, but it had a really strong mid-season finale. I'd say places 1-5 were all brilliant, 6-9 I really enjoyed though they had their issues, 10 (Black Lightning) was OK, and 11-17 were all various levels of disappointment. (Except for Deception, which was better than I expected, but I didn't expect it to be anything but an ABC procedural.) Note that the ranking of Black Lightning and The Gifted is based on their respective first seasons, since I haven't had the time to catch up on their seasons 2 yet.

    In this thread, we're supposed to be ranking all the 2018 shows we've seen, not just naming the best ones.

    The Americans (S6) Sharp Objects The Good Place (S2/S3) The Alienist The Expanse (S3) Dietland Jessica Jones (S2) The 100 (S5) Black Lightning Agents of SHIELD (S5) Cloak and Dagger The Gifted Runaways Deception Star Trek: Discovery The X-Files (S11) Yesterday I finished my binge of this show (which I started a couple of months ago). I wrote about the show overall in the 2017 thread and the Watch... thread after finishing S4. The show has its ups and downs. I was told that season 5 was as bad or maybe worse than season 3, which I hated and which was a huge mess, but that wasn't the case. However, it had some really annoying stuff: a return of a very annoying plot point from season 3, which got a lot of attention and screentime, and one of the worst 'romantic' relationships I've ever seen on screen - it has an awful, toxic setup, is 'developed' entirely off-screen and in a lazy way, and has no chemistry whatsoever (also, one half of it is an extremely annoying and badly written supporting character played by an awful actress who can't emote at all). But fortunately, it didn't take that much screentime, as it's really obvious to anyone paying attention that it's just there to create an obstacle, but every time it was on screen, I felt like I was watching a telenovela, and their sex scene felt like one of the sex scenes from The Room. And generally, the amount of stuff that was covered off-screen was this season's biggest problem. But a lot of other things were interesting and compelling - but it wasn't as good as seasons 2 or 4 or even season one. More than anything, it felt like a setup for season 6, which is going to air the next year. I would rank the seasons: season 2 > season 4 (they are pretty close and much better than the rest) >>> season 1 > season 5 > season 3.
  10. That's really not saying much.

    The Good Place S3 - heaven is a place on Earth (spoilers)

    Nah, Liam is still the worst Hemsworth brother. And BTW, Miley Cyrus certainly didn't write "Wrecking Ball" about him, because she did not write that song, period - but it was Jason who said that, which makes perfect sense. That episode was my least favorite of the season, but the one with Chidi going all nuts and nihilistic was great. I wonder how many more episodes they can devote to saving other people. Jason, Eleanor and Tahani have now all had resolutions with their family members and/or friends. I guess Chidi should be next. Then what?

    Cast-o-phobia: We have a winner!!

    Thank you, guys!
  13. That's season 4 of Arrow. It was one of the worst seasons any TV show I've ever seen.
  14. You mean season 2 of The Flash and season 5 of Arrow? I'm not a fan of the Arrowverse by any means, but I decided to binge watch all chronologically of it a while ago just out of curiosity and to know what everyone is talking about. The first 2 seasons of Arrow were surprisingly good (surprisingly because I had only seen some of Supergirl before, which is trash), but seasons 3 and 4 were some of the worst TV I've ever seen. The only reason I got through them was because I relegated Arrowverse shows to the "just watch it as background noise while working" status. Season 5 is better on comparison, that's not saying much. The show pretty much went downhill when they changed the showrunner and started pushing Olicity. Season 1 of The Flash was pretty good, sesson 2 so-so, but season 3 is so bad. I haven't finished either, though. I don't have a huge motivation to comtinue with Arrowverse.

    I was like that with The Walking Dead for a long time, even though I was getting weaned off during season 7 and season 8a, when I was mostly just watching it as background noise while working. But in the end, I finally dropped it, and haven't seen any episodes this year.
