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”

Jake’s Picks: Have you seen any good film adaptations lately?

By Jake Myers

Film adaptations are simply works of art previously presented in another written form: novel, graphic novel, play or short story. In my opinion, 90 percent of the time, the book is better, but I love seeing the characters come to life on the big screen.

Oftentimes, adaptations are billed as such to increase ticket sales; for example, the “Harry Potter” film series by J.K. Rowling and “The Hunger Games” film series by Suzanne Collins. Recently, some good adaptations have hit the theaters that maybe you weren’t aware were adaptations.

“The Girl with All the Gifts” by M.R. Carey was released on film (2017) with the same name and was directed by Colm McCarthy. I would recommend both the book and the film. M.R. Carey also wrote the screenplay and the film is currently available on Amazon Prime.

I would also recommend “The Shack” (2017), directed by Stuart Hazeldine and written by

From "The Deuce" to "Stranger Things," our best picks for fall TV …

There are literally hundreds of TV shows debuting or returning between now and the end of the year. You can’t—and shouldn’t—watch all of them. No sane person would even try.

But most of us can manage a few (especially when they’re bingeable). That’s why we sorted through all the upcoming fall shows and picked just four that we feel are worth your limited time and energy. From the porn industry to serial killer psychology, these are the TV shows you need to know about over the next few months (with a few others to keep an eye on):

The Deuce

The Wire creator David Simon is back on HBO with another sprawling, sociopolitical drama. Like The Wire, The Deuce is a captivating portrait of an American city, exploring in industrious detail the rise of the porn industry in 1970s Manhattan.

Come for the stylish period costumes and setting, stay for Simon’s distinctive interweaving

‘Criminal Minds’ Season 13 Picks Up After Scary Cliffhanger; Shemar Moore Will Not Return

Criminal Minds Season 12

Mr. Scratch (Bodhi Elfman) and his sinister plans will continue to wreak havoc in “Criminal Minds” Season 13. This much is a sure thing according to EP Erica Messer. She also added that there might be a connection between the criminal, Lindsey (Gia Mantegna) and Cat’s (Aubrey Plaza) stories. This is very likely since it was Lindsey who helped get Spencer back in the recently concluded season.

The season finale that aired on Wednesday also saw the return of Shemar Moore who left the series in season 11. He once again played his role as Derek but this time it was as a civilian instead of a FBI agent. He was seen in the final moments of the episode. Although many fans would want to see more of Moore in “Criminal Minds” Season 13, his stint was
