TV HUNTER picks best 10 shows of 2017

TV Hunter picks his top 10 shows of 2017. Do you agree with his choices?

2017 has been a doozy.

Few will contest saying arrivederci to this year when the time comes to ring 2018. But before that ball drops, let’s take a moment to appreciate one of the bright spots of 2017 — the continuing abundance of great television.

Upward of 500 shows aired in the past 12 months and for anyone who tried to stay up to date on even a fraction of them, the binging exhaustion is real. Even choosing 10 of the best is a challenge when reflecting on all that flooded the air (and streaming) waves. But I’m here to give it a shot, one I will certainly revise many times as I write it and regret for months afterward.

Anyway, here are my top 10 shows of 2017:

10. “Playing House”

People ‘cheated’ on their partners with these Netflix shows

Netflix is notoriously tight-lipped about its viewership numbers, but the streaming giant has recently released some juicy information about the way people watch its shows. In its roundup of 2017’s most-binged shows, it included the top 10 shows that inspired people to “cheat” and watch ahead of their partners. So if you were watching “Narcos” with your significant other and suspected he or she of jumping ahead on the nights you worked late, you have something else to argue about during the holidays! Crime shows, in fact, led the top 10 in cheating. Here they are:

1. “Narcos”

The drama, now three seasons and counting, chronicles the Colombian drug trade and the rise and fall of Pablo Escobar. It’s filled with pulse-pounding confrontations between cartels and the DEA, so it’s no surprise viewers can’t wait to jump to the next chapter without their partners.

2. “13 Reasons Why”

The 50 best TV shows of 2017: No 6 Mindhunter

For a show about some of the 20th-century’s bloodiest murderers, Mindhunter doesn’t have that much blood. Or murder, for that matter.

Instead, Netflix’s best drama focuses on the birth of criminal profiling in late-70s America. Produced by Charlize Theron and David Fincher – who directed a handful of episodes (as did Asif Kapadia and Borgen writer Tobias Lindholm) – Mindhunter tells the story of two FBI officers awakening to the idea of using the minds of real-life monsters such as Jerry Brudos and Richard Speck to stop similar crimes happening in the future.

Fincher isn’t actually the showrunner of Mindhunter (although squint and you’re in Zodiac). That job belongs to British writer Joe Penhall, last seen adapting the Kinks’ songs for the stage in jukebox musical Sunny Afternoon. Penhall took agent John E Douglas’s 1995 book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite

With the list ever-growing, and with many audiences committed to completionism with series they previously started years earlier (or just got into, thanks to a binge), there is often very little time in one’s day to give new shows a shot. But 2017 wasn’t just a time of the most television, it has also been a time of some truly strong television — bold stories that tackle tough topics, come from unique new voices, and/or
