Mine:

1. Mindhunter
2. Taboo
3. Agents of SHIELD
4. Happy!
5. Shokugeko no Soma (Food Wars)

Notes:

Mindhunter and Taboo blew me away and along with 2016's Westworld have made me excited to watch TV again. Also get my votes for most eagerly anticipated sequels.

SHIELD has steadily improved by taking risks and shifting the focus and genre of each season. Happy! might be new but it made me happy and what more could I ask for? Shokugeki is quite simply fantastic and not just one of my favourite animes, but one of my favourite all-time TV shows.

Honourable Mentions:

- American Gods. I really liked it and it would definitely be in my Top Ten, but I like action and humour a bit more than drama.
- Vikings. With the loss of Travis Fimmell Vikings has dropped out of my Top Five. It is still one of my favourite shows and I'll be keeping an eye on Alex Høgh Andersen as Ivar the Boneless to see if he can fill his daddy's shoes (hur, hur).
- There are other shows that are just as good and might even be better in some people's opinion, but these are MY Top 5 shows of 2017.

Oh, you said a season. Thought you meant the -series- had to have started in 2017.
I guess i'm OK with mine regardless.

Yeah, I think it makes more sense to include shows that are still running in 2017, so if it had a season this year it counts.

I see your list is much more comedy-oriented than mine! big grin

Who has time to watch more than 5 or so TV shows in a year?

Ain't nobody got time for that...



I've seen Punisher and The Orville. Like them both a lot. Stranger Things Season 2 was okay also.

The Demon Hunter

1. Mr. Robot. Haven't actually seen any of the current season as I'm waiting for it to finish so I can binge on it, but I think my friends are getting sick of me banging on about it.

2. Mindhunter. Really well written, really well shot and at times underwhelming but in a good way, like it drifts by you. Perhaps understated would be a better term.

3. Dark. I'm not sure if I liked this more than Stranger Things but it took me 3 days to watch. I finished Dark in a day.

4. The Orville. Took a lot of us by surprise. A healthy straddling of fun characters and good science fiction. Not written to be overly smart just to be awesome.

5. Dark Matter. Only discovered this show recently but it's had it's 3rd and final season now. Great show for all those still pining over the loss of Firefly. It does go to the 'Capable women saving silly men' drawer a bit too often but it's still enjoyable and could easily take place in the same universe as Firefly.

Honourable mentions.

Bosch. Discovered this by accident when I noticed Jamie Hector from The Wire was in it. L.A. cop show but not in the usual way, it's actually quite jazzy and speakeasy in it's style.

Other Space. Only 1 season of this so far and that was a couple of years ago, but they are trying to get funding for a second season so this counts as a current show for me. Like a Canadian version of...

Red Dwarf. It's back, say no more.

Stranger Things.

The Man In The High Castle. As a fan of the book I was delighted when the second season went beyond the end of the book. Please keep making more.

The Punisher.

The Handmaid's Tale.

Preacher. Mostly due to the much needed inclusion of Herr Starr.
