Sweet/Vicious

8 Episodes from 2017…

So, normally, I would explain to you what about each of these episodes I love. However, this year has kind of deflated me. In general, I have not posted as often as I would have liked, because I have not really been able to find the motivation. Moving forward, I plan to take a break from posting here at all, but will continue updating Twitter and Facebook with TV news and opinions. And hopefully, I will find my inspiration again in 2018. If nothing else, I will be working very hard to get Beto O’Rourke elected to the United States Senate in Texas.

But, for now, this is my list of favorite episodes, not necessarily what I believe are the best episodes of the year, just my favorites. I would still love to hear what are some of your favorites, so please share them with me in the comments!

1. This Is Us – Memphis



2. Sweet/Vicious – Fearless



3. The Leftovers – The Book of Nora



4. The Good Place – Michael’s Gambit
