RR’s Top Ten TV Shows Of 2018

The amount of contents yearly produced for the small screen makes it almost impossible to keep up, even for people whose full time job is watching and talking film. Notwithstanding, I did my best. It’s been a terrific year for the small screen, many classic works of art aired to millions around the globe. And, as usual, I’ve put together a list to appreciate all the shows that made me feel good.

Below is my list of TV shows that struck something in me, irrespective of genre or professional critics’ opinion.

PS: 2018 has a lot of great TV shows; and it was tough limiting them to ten. I apologize in advance if your favorite(s) don’t make the list. Do air your grievance in the comment box.

10. Marvel’s Runaways s2

Even though its a late year release, Runaways sees a vast improvement in its writing, acting and story in its sophomore year. It’s a better outing than its first.

9. The Hunting of Hill House s1

Netflix continues to be the gift that keeps on giving. I really enjoyed this horror show about a small family terrorized by their past. Even though it got neatly tied out, a part of me still wishes it’ll have a second season focusing on the same family. You can read my review here.

8. American Crime Story s2: The Assassination of Gianni Versace

Even though though it’s got a misleading title, fans can’t stop raving over the beauty that’s this year’s entry into the American Crime Story anthology, and that’s largely due to Darren Criss’ performance. We sure owe him a lot.

7. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina s1

Another Netflix offering that helped make the year better.

6. The Handmaid’s Tale s2

In Gilead, things bad things happen. And it’s up to Offred (or June, whatever she goes by these days) to change the narrative back to the saner days.

5. Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD s5

Everyone who knows me knows Agents of SHIELD has been one of my favorite shows for some years now. The shows never disappoints. It’s sad I have to wait longer for another season to arrive.

4. Marvel’s Daredevil s3

Daredevil was arguably at its best this season. A nice retrace back to its root. Which makes its sudden cancellation all the more painful.

Just before I unveil my top three, I’d list to list some honorable mentions. Please note that they’re in no particular order.

  • Titans s1
  • AHS s8
  • The Deuce s2
  • Jack Ryan s1
  • Luke Cage s2
  • Krypton s1
  • Barry s1
  • Dirty John s1

3. Westworld s2

After a wonderful first outing in 2016, Westworld tries its best to live up to the hype that its the goto show for unexpected twists and turns in timelines.

2. HTGAWM s4&5

Previously on How to get away with murder….

That’s all I need to hear to make my Thursdays. Viola Davis and the rest of the remarkable cast continue to do impressive works. Coupled with the fact that Wes is still dead, this show is definitely one of my favorites.

1. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow s3&4

Never in the history of TV has a show as silly and self-aware as Legends of Tomorrow ever existed. Whoever birthed the idea to make it this way sure has my respect. The sillier the show gets, the happier I become.

I followed a lot of TV shows this year, and it’s only fitting I liked some more than others, doesn’t mean those not mentioned are bad. As I said earlier, I’d like to know your thoughts in the comment box..

What’s Your Favourite Netflix Show?

Netflix has been around for sometime now distributing DVDs around the U.S.A. But since the release of ‘House of Cards’ in 2013 they haven’t slowed down and have continued to churn out more and more original contents with a promise to completely take over the market from traditional forms of programming. This daring move has seen them release so many critically acclaimed shows, and movies. As it seems, there’s definitely no stopping them.

With over 100+ original programmings and more being added to their catalogues daily, it’s almost impossible catching up to all in record time. But those who manage to binge-watch successfully attest to the quality of most of their shows. This makes it somewhat difficult to decide on a favorite. 

Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Mindhunters, 13 Reasons Why, Sense 8, Narcos, A series of Unfortunate Events, Dear White People, Orange is the New Black, Ozark, Bojack Horseman, The Publisher and Glow are some of the beat works produced by Netflix. 

So, I ask, which are your favorites? Feel free to choose up to five (5) shows that made you happy watching them.

‘House Of Cards’ To Resume Production On Its Sixth And Final Season

‘House of Cards’ to resume production on its sixth and final season early next month.
Following the needs of several sexual allegations levelled against lead Kevin Spacey, he was fired and the show’s production subsequently halted.

With this letter, we can rest again knowing production will resume shortly… without Spacey of course.

Here’s the letter.

Dear Cast and Crew,

As we move into the holidays, we want to express our appreciation for all of the meaningful messages of support we have received from you and want to update all of our loyal cast and crew on our progress and where things currently stand.

We continue to work with Netflix with the hope of resuming production soon. As we continue these discussions, we have determined together that the crew will be paid for an additional two week hiatus – beginning on November 27th and continuing through December 8th.

In addition to the writers, there will be a small contingency of office/accounting staff who will remain in the production office on a continuous basis. Our hope is that the entire crew will be able to reconvene when production resumes, but we want you to know that we will certainly understand if crew members need to find other work in the interim, which will prevent them from re-joining us. We sincerely appreciate all you have done.

Cast and other union members who are not actively working will be paid in accordance with applicable union guidelines through this period and we will be reaching out directly to your representatives to work through the details; we will get to everyone as quickly as possible and appreciate all of your patience here.

These last two months have tested and tried all of us in ways none of us could have foreseen. The one thing we have learned throughout this process is that this production is bigger than just one person and we could not be more proud to be associated with one of the most loyal and talented production cast and crews in this business.

We will provide an additional update by 12/8/17.

Thank you all.

Pauline Micelli

Prometheus To Feature In Arrowverse 2017 Crossovers

Are you a fan of The CW Arrowverse?

Did you watch Arrow’s fifth season?

If you answers to both questions are yes, then you’ve met Prometheus (no relation to 2012’s Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel).


Prometheus was the villain to beat, a player on a whole new scale for Oliver and the other members of Team Arrow. Even though he died at his own hands at the end of the season, he won, he caused Oliver enough damage to last a lifetime. And now, its been confirmed that Prometheus, or at least a variant of the villain, will be appearing in the annual crossover event.
This year’s crossover is titled, Crisis on Earth-X, and will be a fallout between our heroes and villains around the multiverse on the occasion of Barry and Iris’ wedding. Prometheus, from Earth-X, has been billed to appear as a formidable foe for Oliver; it’ll be wonderful.

Crisis on Earth-X

The crossover episodes have become a yearly event since inception in 2015; every year keeps getting bigger and better. After last year’s Invasion, one might be tempted to think no way forward, but this year promises to be better.

Film Of The day: Merlin

Merlin is a British fantasy-adventure drama television programme created by Julian Jones, Jake Michie, Julian Murphy, and Johnny Capps, starring Colin Morgan in the title role. It was broadcast on BBC One from 20 September 2008 to 24 December 2012 for a total of 65 episodes. The show is loosely based on the Arthurian legends of the young wizard Merlin and his relationship with King Arthur, but it differs from traditional versions. The show was influenced by the US drama series Smallville about the early years of Superman (Wiki).

Merlin was extremely popular in the years leading up to a boom in TV serial programming. It was a must watch. In the league of the original Prison Break, Lost, Legend Of The Seeker, Kyle XY, etc., TV shows that had good story, awesome characters, and an impressive cast – Colin Morgan, James Bradley, Angel Coulbey, Katie McGrath, John Hurt, Anthony Head – to mention but a few.

Merlin is a reimagining of the legend in which the future King Arthur (James Bradley) and Merlin (Colin Morgan) are young contemporaries. Arthur’s father Uther Pendragon (Anthony Head) has banned magic in Camelot, its use punishable by death, forcing Merlin to keep his magical powers secret from everyone in Camelot other than his mentor Gaius (Richard Wilson). Arthur grows from a young, self-absorbed boy to the mighty king in the legends, and Merlin develops into his colossal role in creating the powerful Camelot (Wiki).
Merlin discovers that the king, Uther Pendragon, outlawed magic twenty years earlier in an event known as the Great Purge and imprisoned the last Dragon deep under the kingdom. After hearing a mysterious voice inside his head, Merlin makes his way to the cavern beneath Camelot where the Great Dragon (voice of

John Hurt ) tells Merlin that he has an important destiny: to protect Uther’s son, Arthur, who will return magic to Camelot and unite the land of Albion .

When Merlin meets Arthur, Merlin believes that he is an arrogant bully and Arthur, likewise, has a less than stellar opinion of Merlin. After saving the prince’s life Merlin becomes his servant and the two begin to respect and trust one another. Merlin eventually becomes close friends with Arthur, and another servant named Guinevere (Angel Coulby ). But when Uther’s actions eventually cause his ward Morgana (Katie McGrath ) to turn against Camelot, Merlin must work together with the Once and Future King (Arthur) to save Albion.
