Best of Summer 2017 TV

So the summer is officially winding down and as such it’s time to start taking stock of everything that has happened. First up television!

Does it feel like anything really moved the needle this year in TV land? There was lots of stuff I really enjoyed but not much shook me to my core, other than Claws and Man to Man, which were two of the most entertaining shows I’ve ever watched. I think this might be cause a lot of the shows I watched were of the singable variety. Hard to marinate on something like Voltron, when the next week you get hit with a Defenders. I also discovered a lot of foreign television, so even though Netflix is changing my viewing habits, it’s at least expanding my horizons. I will say that though not much had me shook show wise, performance wise there’s some brilliant stuff, including Thomas Doherty from Descendants 2, who has perhaps given the performance of the year in any medium.
