Favorite TV Series of the year.

For most of us , 2020 sucked. One thing for me that made it more bearable was how many outstanding TV series I watched.

What was your favorite TV series this year? You can include the latest season of ongoing shows.

Here are mine.

!. My Brilliant Friend (HBO)

2. Schitt's Creek - Final season

3. Ozark - 3rd season - Netflix

4. Pen15 - Hulu

5 We are Who we Are - HBO

6. Little Fires Everywhere - Hulu

7. Succession - HBO

8. The Queen's Gambit - Netflix

I actually meant to put just about 3 series, but I kept on thinking "what about this series" and felt I couldn't leave any of these out. There are others I really liked that I didn't include. What a year!

"Call me Kat" the American version of "Miranda" is to sitcomy to be good. The trailer looks cheesy.

I think Amy Poehler would have been a better cast for the lead role. confused

Shows I'm looking forward to returning are American Gods, Succession, Flea Bag and Russian Doll. Wish Years and Years had a 2nd season but it's like Watchmen only meant for 1 season.

I think they hired Mayim Bialik hoping Big Bang Theory fans will watch the series.

GOT is game of thrones. TWD is the walking dead.

A bit off topic, but, i just watched the movie 'Dredd' and it afforded me a bit of GOT closure biggrin

...and a few more great additions:

(already mentioned, but i watched all 3 seasons in 2020) 'Ozark'!

'Your Honor' technically started last year, but it's getting deeper!

(also aleady mentioned)'The Boys' & 'Watchmen'

I liked Watchman, but it's sad and very dark stories.

I never really got around to watching The Sopranos. I always watched it until season 3 or 4 and then had to stop for some reason, so this time, with the pandemic and all, I decided to start with season 1 again and now I´m almost done with season 5 and I love this show. It´s really special...very realistic, lots of pop cultural references, interesting characters, very brutal in a realistic way and it´s also an emotional rollercoaster for me. It´s also interesting to get a closer glimpse into Italian-American life in New Jersey.

And it seems like yesterday but it´s been 20 years already, or 13 if you count from when it ended. It´s strange to see a time before the omnipresent smartphones, or a pre-9/11 America, and to see them peddling stolen DVD players. lol

That Tony Soprano is a strange character....sometimes I deeply emphathize with him and find him very likeable and the next scene he is a complete asshole.

But that´s part of the charm of this show I guess.
