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:

Criminal Minds on CBS tells the story of a group of FBI profilers who deal with some of the most complex criminals and try to catch them through behavioural profiling.

BBC confirm Peter Kay’s Car Share specials will go ahead after cancelling upcoming tour

The characters on the show are some of the most loved on television with one character in particular carving his way into the hearts of the biggest fans of the show, that is Spencer Reid.

Played by Matthew Gray Gubler, Reid is characterised by his intense intelligence and social awkwardness.

In season 12 the character goes through a particularly dramatic arc that involves some jail time.

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
