EWB's Favorite TV Show 2018: The Voting Thread

Recommended Posts

GoGo Yubari    28,778

Previously, on EWB's Favorite TV Show 2017:

 

stop me if you've heard this one before. A Netflix show came out of nowhere to win in its first year of eligibility. Crazy, right? Totally unthinkable. In a year where multiple Favorite Show powerhouses took the year off, can GLOW break the recent trend of champs not repeating? I dunno! You tell me! With your ballots! It's EWB's Favorite Show 2018, the voting thing GoGo Yubari will not flake out on this time.

THE RULES:

1. You will be fielding a list of your top fifteen shows of the year. Voting, of course, goes like so; list the shows from 1 to 15, the show you listed at 1 gets fifteen points, the show you listed at 2 gets fourteen points, and so on. That being said, if you didn't watch fifteen TV shows (or fifteen TV shows you actually liked enough to vote for) feel free to just leave the rest of your ballot blank once you run out. That is totally valid!

2. This is a list for your favorite TV shows of 2018, and by that I mean that every show you vote for must have been airing new episodes in its country of origin. For example, My Hero Academia aired new episodes in Japan this year so it's eligible! (ha I get to keep the same example two years in a row)

3. Shows don't necessarily have to be scripted comedies or dramas. Just take it from Taskmaster, the 15th-place finisher from last year! Or Drag Race, I'm pretty sure Drag Race made it again.

4. But there is an exception; no wrestling. That stuff will all be in the wrestling awards, if there is one this year. Someone... should probably run wrestling awards.

5. And finally, you don't need to tell me you've edited your list up until I post saying that voting is closed, because that's when I'll start tallying everything. Then if you really, really want to make a change you should probably let me know, and I may or may not allow it. 

AND A BONUS: For the second year, those interested can also add their pick for Best New Character of 2018! Last year a fair few of you joined me in this side thing, which I think is fun! It's fun, let's have fun. All you have to do is add at the bottom something along the lines of "Best New Character: " and then the name of the character and what show they appeared in! As long as said character's first appearance was this year, they're eligible to potentially join Bob Newby in the hall of champions!

So get voting! Deadline will be sometime between two and three weeks from now, so you do have some time to catch up on shows (which I will most certainly be doing).

I am bound to make changes at some points, unless I completely forget. I'm not sure if it's right even at this very moment.

Black Mirror was released at the tail end of 2017, but that was after the last year's voting was complete. Is it alright to include it for this year's?

Yeah, I did not watch much TV this year...

I guess Silicon Valley at #6, but anything I watch between now and when voting ends will probably bump it down.

Not seeing any Westworld votes. Would I be on the right side of history if I just stopped at season one?

I enjoyed the first season, after the first episode of the second season I just wasn't interested.

Nora's first appearance was on January 23rd, so she counts! She's definitely one of my finalists for who I end up voting for.

Trying to put this list together whilst looking at other lists just makes me realise my TV watching has plummeted this year. So many things I haven't started, let alone finished

1. The Good Place
2. Taskmaster
3. Santa Clarita Diet
4. A Series of Unfortunate Events
5. GLOW
6. BoJack Horseman
7. Orange is the New Black
8. 13 Reasons Why

I genuinely think that those are the only shows I've seen all of to make it fair to vote them. Fallen completely behind on the Marvel series' since Jessica Jones S2 bored me and I never picked the others up, I don't think Brooklyn 99 Season 5 is up for streaming anywhere and if it aired on E4 I totally missed it. Sabrina and Hill House I've only seen a few episodes of each but they've both been decent so might stick them on the end. I'm a season behind on Better Call Saul and probably won't pick it back up, Sharp Objects passed me by and I didn't even know we had new Cuckoo and Billions!

Best New Character: Esme Squalor, A Series of Unfortunate Events

It will be on my list when I start putting it together, for what it's worth. It's not perfect but I enjoy it.

To follow up: Stranger Things is ineligible. Narcos is also ineligible, though it's possible you meant Narcos: Mexico which is apparently its own thing and is probably what I'd count the Narcos point toward.

Narcos: Mexico only came out a few days ago though, I'll be surprised if he meant that.

      Previously, on EWB's Favorite TV Show 2016:
       
      I... I dunno. I just found this. I didn't want to just do one of the million talk show videos of the kids rapping or whatever.
      anyway WE'RE BACK. For a second year a Netflix show came out of nowhere and took the top spot in its first year of eligibility. Can Stranger Things repeat or is it time for pop culture sensation Friends From College to continue the streak??? Only your ballots can truly say! Let's go.
      (NOTE: Friends From College may not, in fact, be a pop culture sensation.)
      THE RULES:
      1. You will be fielding a list of your top fifteen shows of the year. Voting, of course, goes like so; list the shows from 1 to 15, the show you listed at 1 gets fifteen points, the show you listed at 2 gets fourteen points, and so on. That being said, if you didn't watch fifteen TV shows (or fifteen TV shows you actually liked enough to vote for) feel free to just leave the rest of your ballot blank once you run out. That is totally valid!
      2. This is a list for your favorite TV shows of 2017, and by that I mean that every show you vote for must have been airing new episodes in its country of origin. For example, My Hero Academia aired new episodes in Japan this year so it's eligible!
      3. Shows don't necessarily have to be scripted comedies or dramas. They could also be competitive reality shows like RuPaul's Drag Race or satirical news shows like Full Frontal, both of which made the list last year.
      4. But there is an exception; no wrestling. That stuff will all be in the wrestling awards, which is also a thing I'm running because fuck free time I guess?
      5. And finally, you don't need to tell me you've edited your list up until I post saying that voting is closed, because that's when I'll start tallying everything. Then if you really, really want to make a change you should probably let me know, and I may or may not allow it.
      SPECIAL BONUS: I want to throw in a fun side award this year and ended up with Best New Character of 2017. So anyone so interested can add to the end of their ballot something like "Best New Character: (insert name of TV character that debuted in 2017 here)." This will either go well or be an absolute fucking disaster! Yay!
      Now get to it! Deadline will be sometime between two weeks from now and three weeks from now so you've got some time to finish up those ten or twenty shows you've still got on your queue.

      And we're back! Last year, Daredevil came out of nowhere to win the title in its very first year of eligibility, an unprecedented feat! Can it defend the crown with the power of like a million randomly-appearing ninja, or will another show, be they a former champ like Game of Thrones, some new hotness superhero show, or something else altogether pull off the win? Only your ballots can truly say! Let's get this show on the road.
      THE RULES:
      1. You will be fielding a list of your top fifteen shows of the year. Voting, of course, goes like so; list the shows from 1 to 15, the show you listed at 1 gets fifteen points, the show you listed at 2 gets fourteen points, and so on.

That is totally valid!
      2. This is a list for your favorite TV shows of 2016, and by that I mean that every show you vote for must have been airing new episodes in its country of origin. Like, I dunno, if Sherlock aired episodes in the UK last year and they aired on PBS this year that doesn't make it eligible now. Something like that.
      3. Shows don't necessarily have to be scripted comedies or dramas. Both The Daily Show and Last Week Tonight made it in last year, for example.
      4. But there is an exception; no wrestling. That stuff will all be in the wrestling awards, which is also a thing I'm running because fuck free time I guess?
      5. And finally, you don't need to tell me you've edited your list up until I post saying that voting is closed, because that's when I'll start tallying everything. Then if you really, really want to make a change you should probably let me know, and I may or may not allow it.
      Now vote! Deadline will be sometime in the vicinity of two weeks from now, probably.
