TV in 2018 (So Far) : The Good, The Bad & the Meh

Source

I had every intention of documenting every TV show I'd been watching since January, every month ... but like many fab plans I have make for this blog, that obviously didn't happen did it. Doesn't matter though because I figured; since most shows wrap up for summer and we're all sitting here waiting for Insecure Season 3, what better time to offer up a comprehensive list of a. every show I've seen this year, if you care and b. (and probably more helpful) some recommendations of stuff to check out ... and avoid !

10/10 Would Recommend

Black Lightning Season 1

Riverdale Season 2

13 Reasons Why Season 2 - Though not without its problems. I'll definitely link an podcast ep I did where we review the entire season.

Jessica Jones Season 2

Stranger Things Season 2

Westworld Season 1

This is Us - Not to be dramatic but discovering this show a few weeks ago has been a 2018 highlight. The ultimate feel-good-make-you-happy-and-sad-cry type of show.

How To Get Away With Murder Season 4

Safe

Grace and Frankie Season 4

Blackish Season 4

The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 2

Meh 

Suits Season 6

Westworld Season 2

Grownish Season 1

The Bachelorette - it's picking up though

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman

Luke Cage Season 2

Issa No From Me

Dear White People Season 2

Champions Season 1

The Break with Michelle Wolf Season 1

I've definitely had a one month period of seeping through pilots of sub-par Netflix shows as I eagerly await some new seasons of some of my faves. What have you been watching during this slump?!

  1. I really couldn't get into S2 of 13 Reasons... S1 had its issues too but it was a lot more gripping. I loved S2 of Dear White People too! I liked that it explored each character in more depth :)

    1. See I definitely understand the issues with 13 Reasons Why - so much of it is still SO problematic and while I preferred Season 2, it's disappointing that it hasn't learnt from the major mistakes of the first season. Namely, romanticising mental health problems. It also had a deeply problematic penultimate episode this season so I'm a bit nervous about the direction the show seems to be taking !
