Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite TV Shows of 2018

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted byΒ That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week is a different theme for bloggers to post their Top Ten. This week’s theme isΒ a freebie so it’s my Favorite Shows of 2018!Β 
It’s a mix of 2018 Premieres, Shows I started in 2018, and just Shows I Still Love!

(I watch a lot of TV soooo double trouble we’re at Top Twenty Tuesday!)

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

She-Ra came into my life at the exact right time and filled me with so much hope and love! Plus it doesn’t hurt that all the dude-bros are upset about the new character designs, which honestly just makes me love it harder.

The Bold Type

The show is about these three best friends who work at a magazine, but I didn’t realize how good it would feel to watch a show where the older, successful Boss Bitch wasn’t actually a Bitch. And instead she mentors and cares about these young girls with kindness. It’s upsetting what a rare find that is in media!

Black Lightning 

Why is everyone STILL sleeping on this show?! It’s not getting half the amount of love it deserves. 

Queer Eye

Can you believe?! Queer Eye only came out THIS YEAR. That’s how long this year has been. Wow.

Succession

I did not expect to like this show at all, the trailers made it look so generic. I was really surprised though! I love the style it’s shot in. The dialogue is SO sharp and hilarious and the characters are ridiculous! Definitely one of the funniest shows I watched this year.

The 100 

The 100 used to be my favorite show, the first two seasons are spectacular! But the last couple seasons have been a HOT MESS and suffered some seriously lazy writing. This last season was some of the most exciting storytelling they’ve done in a while, can’t wait to see what comes from it! 

Younger

This is such a fun show to watch, especially right now that I’m trying to get a job in publishing! Though IDK why we even have to bother with Charles when Josh is RIGHT THERE. 

Altered Carbon

Visual stunning. Naked Joel Kinnaman. Edgar Allen Poe Sentient Hotel.  

Santa Clarita Diet

This show continues to be a delight! Absolute relationship goals with these two having the ideal supportive marriage. 

The Marvelous Ms. Maisel

I haven’t watched the second season yet so no spoilers! The first season is smart and funny and makes me feel pretty happily smug to be living in New York.

Timeless

Thank you NBC for giving us a finale movie in a few weeks. But also How DARE YOU for cancelling it in the first place. It was just hitting it’s stride, too!

Brooklyn Nine Nine

One of my all time favorite shows to watch when I need a pick-me-up! I was devastated for that one day it got cancelled! Can’t wait to see what the 99 gets up to on NBC!

Bob’s Burgers

Another one of my Go-To shows that always make me happy! I hope there are a thousand more episodes and they never stop streaming.

The Good Place

There is nothing to say about The Good Place that hasn’t already been said. I love how every season reinvents itself and this season gave me my #1 new term of endearment, which is “Chili Babies”. Scoop your little mittens right in the stew!

Superstore

I love the way this show deals with “Issue” plots, like healthcare or cultural appropriation. They never feel like its white people with hot takes, more like actual POC coming up with the jokes. Which makes it seem like it’s punching up, instead of down and it’s so much funnier.

Schitt’s Creek

This show is so endearing!! After I watch even an episode I slip into a Moira Rose accent for days! I think it’s charming, not sure what my friends think. 

The Fosters

For years I rolled my eyes at this so and very adamentaly was NOT going to watch it. Isn’t it fun to look back on how stupid you were in your youth?! Happy family! (Except Brandon who is…so lame)

Queen of the South

OOOOOOh girl I got a TYPE. I may be so into this show because the main guy strongly resembles my Husband from The 100, Bob Morley. But it’s also just really intense, and I could never watch just one episodes. It’s like the very definition of bingeable tv.

You’re the Worst

I am honestly mad it took me so long to watch this show, someone should have told me sooner! The depiction of what it’s like to have depression is so real. Like I feel SEEN. Plus all the Ben Folds stuff is hysterical.

Great News

I’m still super bummed this one got cancelled. It only had two seasons and was still finding its legs when it got cut down! Nicole Richie was shockingly incredible, and I hope she finds another role just as perfect.

Okay, that’s it! Well….some of it. I watch a LOT of TV πŸ€£

TALK TO ME! Do you watch any of these shows? 
What are your favs from 2018?

  1. I *really* need to catch up on “Timeless” so I can watch the finale movie. I really liked the few episodes I watched of S1, so it was nice to know NBC renewed it for a second season at the last minute. I also watched a few “Younger” S1 episodes a long time ago. They were cute, but I didn’t keep current with the show; too many other TV addictions I guess. πŸ™‚

    1. The surprise Timeless renewal last year was so great!!!…only to be cancelled this year 😫
      The only way I can watch Younger is to binge it, so I wait for it to go up on Hulu and then usually just speed through it in a day because the episodes/seasons are so short! Buuuut there is also just so much tv to watch, and so little time!

  2. Great list! I love Queer Eye. t’s such a feel-good show and it inspires me to look after myself more. I also really need to watch She-Ra when I have time.

    1. I am over the MOON about B99 getting picked up! Yes watch She-Ra and Santa Clarita Diet!!!! WATCH EVERYTHING! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  3. I love Bob’s Burgers, Superstore, and The Good Place! I haven’t watched She-Ra yet, mainly because I grew up with the original. But I had to laugh at your description because my husband was complaining about the animation the other day (although he’s nowhere near being a dude-bro).

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

    1. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ it’s different I’m sure, I never watched the original one. But this new She-Ra is incredible and part of it being so amazing is the new character designs! I hope you give it a chance!
      I looove Bob’s Burgers so much though, I’m really excited about the movie!

    1. Yeah the one downside to Santa Clarita Diet is it’s sooooo gory!
      I LOVE Riverdale and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend!!! I’ve only heard good things about Good Girls so I’m probably gonna start that one up before the new season comes out!

    1. I know people have been so negative about it but LOVED IT! The only thing I thought was annoying was Clarke’s storylines, but felt like the writers had been floundering the last couple seasons and they came at this one with PURPOSE! I hope they come at the new season with the same intensity! And Octavia’s entire character arc is so haunting, I can’t wait to see what happens with her!
