Bumping yet another top-something-thread so I can share my top 10 shows of the year! Been a good one.

1. CHERNOBYL (HBO). Superb tv. Show of the year.

2. RICK AND MORTY. The comic geniuses Roiland and Harmon have done it again.

3. FLEABAG (AMAZON). Deserves its accolades. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is just brilliant and I love the 4th wall stuff. Probably not what ppl expect when they watch it given she just talks about anal sex the whole first ep😂. Season 2 was excellent.

4. THE OA (NETFLIX). After a bizarre and slow first season the second was a masterpiece, the parallel universe plot falling into place like a jigsaw with an incredible finale. Tragically cancelled by Netflix. Hoping someone else picks it up.

5. THE BOYS (AMAZON). Avengers meets Reservoir Dogs, such a cracking show.

6. THE CROWN (NETFLIX). Some eps were better than others but it’s such a quality show, the new cast did great I thought particularly Charles.

7. THE GRAND TOUR (AMAZON). Not just the best GT season yet, but IMO better than any Top Gear season as they removed the last of the crappy segments of their format and just focused on the good stuff.

8. DARK (NETFLIX). This baffling, ominous, German time travel drama goes from strength to strength, somehow making one plot move forward on multiple timelines.

9. UMBRELLA ACADEMY (NETFLIX). My top 8 are a class above anything else I’ve watched this year but to round it out I liked this show more than expected.

10. RUSSIAN DOLL (NETFLIX). People either like or hate this Groundhog Day type show in New York, I liked it.

I think outside of a minor internet audience and critics, the wider audience have yet to watch it. I know no one and have tried to get people on the show to no avail. So I personally see it underrated.

Looking for Alaska flew under the radar (compared to Succession which had plenty of attention). Quality teen drama miniseries with an ending. Swear words and sex scenes.
