EWB's Favorite TV Show 2017: The Voting Thread

Recommended Posts

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.

Fuck, now for the fun part of remembering what I've actually watched because there's so damn much that I haven't.

1. The Punisher
2. Rick and Morty
3. Line of Duty
4. Game of Thrones
5. BoJack Horseman
6. Brooklyn Nine-Nine
7. GLOW
8. Santa Clarita Diet

All the stuff I am watching currently is pre-2017, making the list of stuff I've seen from this year pretty bare bones. Lots of reality TV makes the list as a result.

I don't watch much TV anymore, and it's a miracle if I watch TV without the kids. 

1. Better Call Saul
2. Stranger Things
3. GLOW
4. Steven Universe
5. Supergirl
6. Brooklyn 99
7. Adventure Time
8. Teen Titans GO
9. Voltron: Legendary Defender

Maybe more? Probably not.

Best New Character is incredibly tough. GLOW, Twin Peaks, and MST3K alone present a ton of great options. It’s almost worthy of its own list. Or tournament or something.

We definitely need our own TV awards or something? @GoGo Yubari :shifty:

  1. The Handmaid's Tale
  2. Feud
  3. Speechless
  4. The Good Place
  5. Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
  6. Big Little Lies
  7. Broad City
  8. Supergirl
  9. Insecure
  10. The Goldbergs
  11. Master of None
  12. Love
  13. The Deuce
  14. Veep
  15. F is for Family

Notable Mentions: The Last Kingdom, Riverdale, Star Trek: Discovery, Game of Thrones, iZombie, Fresh Off the Boat, Voltron: Legendary Defender.

Man, placing 2-7 is so fucking hard. Also picking who to leave off at the end between Veep, F is for Family, the Last Kingdom and Riverdale. What a year for TV, and I still haven't watched all I wanted to. This list so not done, I expect.

Best New Character: Celeste Wright (Big Little Lies)

Man, another fucking tough one. Offred was so good, Bette from Feud was incredible, and I still wanted to say fuck it and vote for Derek from the Good Place, because that was the best one episode appearance I think I've ever seen.

A look at those episodes on IMDB shows them as airing in 2017.

      Previously, on EWB's Favorite TV Show 2015:
       
       
      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 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 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.
