Sorry about that.  I realize that my taste in music is poor.  That's what I get for being around teenagers all day.

With all due respect, Ser, I have a real problem with #3.  A real problem.  

Likely the only reason he had to start this thread. I mean, he's got answers for less than half, practically nothing for movies. ;)

No apology necessary.  However distasteful your music preferences, your baseball team preferences are exemplary.  

 

Team I hated most in 2018 same as I hated them in all years past and all years to come:  Chicago Cubs

Pretty much all but 3 of the Saints games this season.

6. Favorite TV show you watched week to week in 2018?
The Good Place S2 & S3.

7. Favorite animated series of 2018?

9. Favorite documentary of 2018?

Game Night

11. Favorite action and/or sci-fi film of 2018?
Avengers: Infinity War.

13. Favorite video game of 2018?
Like all true gangstas, I still play Words With Friends like a fiend on my phone.

14. Favorite YouTube channel in 2018?
I had a rediscovery of Conan O’Brien this year through his YouTube channel, but Hot Ones is still my favorite purely YouTube show/channel.

15. What’s your favorite/most used app on your smartphone in 2018?
Facebook is still my most used, but Fitbit is my favorite app. It’s helped motivate me a lot to be healthier.

16. Who is the one entertainer that died in 2018 you’d bring back? (There can be only one!)
Stan Lee for the MCU cameos alone. 

17. What was your 2018 like as depicted in emojis or a single .gif?
