2019: RR’s Top TV Shows

Say what you may about its final season, Game of Thrones still isn’t anyone’s mate. Since 2011, thanks to the show, fans worldwide have been privy to high-quality entertainment, the best in decades, so I’ll be damned if I let one polarizing season mess things up so much I don’t give honor to whom its due:

Game of Thrones is RR’s show of the decade! πŸ‘‘

(Breathes heavily)

Now that we’re done with that, here are the top 20 TV shows that made 2019 awesome for us.

PS: This list includes miniseries, traditional TV series and web-series, and are arranged in no particular order.


1. Four Weddings and a Funeral – Hulu

This miniseries presented a heartfelt, self-contained story about love and loss. It’s n exceptional watch.


2. Euphoria s1 – HBO

Teen angst has never been well captured as HBO did it with this one. Expect lots of sex, drugs and all other crazy teen stuff.


3. Watchmen – HBO

A lot of people are calling this the show of the decade; for a show that premiered just two months ago, that’s pretty commendable. If you haven’t yet, you should watch Regina King kick-ass the HBO way.


4. When they see us – Netflix

There was a time in America when racial injustice didn’t receive as much backlash as it does today; this show takes us back to those perilous times and how four men eventually got compensated for losing their youthful days to an unjust system.


5. Sex Education – Netflix

Gillian Anderson is sexy and we now know it very much, thank you.


6. Chernobyl – HBO

Although one of the biggest disasters to have occured, not much was known about it; this show’s changed that.


7. The Mandalorian – Disney +

Pedro Paschal is having the time of his life playing really fun characters. Though Mando might not seem like it, he’s been having twice his normal fun since Baby Yoda came into his life.


8. Undone – Amazon Prime

The shooting technic used to create this live-action-animation easily makes it one of the best shows of this year. Then, factor in its strong story and cast performance, you’ve got a big winner.


9. See – Apple TV

If you thought Jason Momoa’s awesomeness had peaked out playing Khal Drogo and Aquaman, wait to you meet Baba Voss, his fiercest yet.


10. The Morning Show – Apple TV

Jennifer Aniston is back on TV as Alex Levy. I can tell you one thing though, she’s no Rachel.


11. Barry s2 – HBO

Bill Hader continues to impress as Barry. He’s on fire and so is his character.


12. The Hot Zone – Nat Geo

Ebola is a disease that’s always wiped out large number of people whenever it reappears. This is a trip to one of its earlier occurrence in history.


13. Evil s1 – CBS

Our current world is inherently evil and CBS has found a way to phone-in to make a truly drama from these happenings. If you didn’t like Mike Colter during his time as Luke Cage, then you should like him here as a priest-in-training.


14. Swamp Thing s1 – DC Universe

Although this show got cancelled, it still remains one of the best things to come out of 2019. It’s a pity its strong story and cast performance couldn’t save it from issues behind the scenes.


15. The Boys – Amazon Prime

What will be said of 2019 if we don’t mention the show that gave us the best instance of what it’d be like if Superman and the rest of the Justice League were evil? Nothin good.


16. How to Get Away with Murder – ABC

The current season 6 might be its weakest, but the love I’ve got for the show just wouldn’t let me not include it on this list. I’m sorry.


17. Fleabag s2 – BBC One

Fleabag is hilarious, entertaining, and mostly educative. It’s obvious a lot of work went into the crafting of this piece of art; great writing, awesome acting, and a very believable world; definitely worth all the hype.


18. Doom Patrol s1 – DC Universe

Another DC offering that really surprised me. Just like Legends of Tomorrow, this show knows it’s stupid and embraces it well.


19. Stranger Things s3 – Netflix

Allow your mind to be blow again by Eleven and her crew of merry men and women.


20. Carnival Row s1 – Amazon Prime

No doubt, 2019 was a good year for Amazon. This Orlando Bloom/ Cara Delevingne lead fairytale fantasy also helped make it so.


Honorable mentions: The Crown; Love, Death & Robots; The Terror; Good Omens; Mindhunter s2; Emergence; AHS: 84; Godfather of Harlem; Succession; A discovery of Witches; Stranger Things; Killing Eve s2; The Politician s1; Agents of SHIELD s6; All Rise s1.

HTGAWM: Who Killed Asher?

Yeah, you read that right. HTGAWM pulled a fast one on us. All season, the show kept foreshadowing Annalise’s death whereas there was someone we should’ve been more worried about. RIP Mr. Millstone. No more wiggle wiggle from this one.

Welcome to my last recap this year for the number one crime-drama on TV (Don’t argue. Just go with it 😌). HTGAWM is going on a long hiatus and will return in April 2020 for its last six episodes.

With that out of the way, let’s dive into the episode.

Asher Was The Mole! πŸ˜₯

Sad to believe but it’s true, Asher was the mole all along. The FBI held him tight by the balls to save his mom from jail he began to act like crazy Nate, blaming Annalise for all his problems and tried, unsuccessfully, to rope the others into his scheme. Can we give it up for Michaela eagle eyes. That babe continues to impress me. The way she figured out Asher was the culprit was some good observation skills, and to think that happened with her being high.

How these kids manage to always blame AK for all the wrong things they’ve done will remain one of the greatest mysteries of all time. They probably do it to make better sense of their lives and feel better. Weaklings they are, especially NATE LAHEY.

After Simon, I think Oliver has a boundary problem with the sanctity of human life. In fact, they’ve all got it but Oliver used to be the purest and now he’s been brought into the fold of murders and cover-ups, I think he doesn’t know how to stop. The fact that the first thing he could do when Asher came clean was to hit him in the head with a fireplace poker is quite scary.

But because Oliver’s the obvious culprit is what makes him the least likeliest to finish the job he started. I mean, what are the odds?

Another suspect is Annalise. Where did she go when she asked the driver to turn the car around? I guess we’ll never know until the show returns.

Other strong contenders for the glory of having killed Asher are Gabriel (it happened at his apartment); Tegan (if she could help Laurel escape, she could be guilty of anything now); Frank (he’d do anything to make Bonnie happy); Nate (unstable psycho); the Governor (anything to further implicate Annalise); or Oliver by technicality (probably the hit to the head was actually something to worry about).

Who’s your money on? Who killed Asher?

This episode had its shortcomings too. The whole retcon thing to implicate Asher as the bad guy felt so soap opera-ish, which isn’t a bad thing, but isn’t how I like my HTGAWM dish served. For what it’s worth, though, it’s a breath of fresh air for the show. For its final season, it’s got liberty to experiment some more.

How’s Wes Alive?!

Perhaps one of the biggest mysteries of this episode will be its very confusing timeline. At the tail end of the episode, we see Wes Gibbons, who we’ve thought dead for a long time (season 3) come forward to give a speech at Annalise’s funeral. It’s be good to note that this person isn’t called by the name “Wes”, he only shares his likeness. This means it could actually be Christopher, Wes’s son, and the scene is shot far into the future. Maybe no one killed Annalise after all. Maybe she got to live a long life and died happy. We won’t know for sure until the show returns for what’s been teased to be an exolosive conclusion to a stellar run.

Where will you be April 2, 2020?


Rinzy’s Rating: 3.5/5

HTGAWM: Who Kills Annalise?

I knew it! Annalise planned to fake her own death. With that confirmation in last week’s episode (s06e08), now, I really fear someone got to her because she could escape to safety.

Who did it?

Obvious answers would be the Castillos to the Governor, but my money’s on Nate. Nigga hasn’t been the same since his father died. Suddenly, he has forgotten all Annalise has done for him and only remembers all she did to him. If he had an accomplice, my money’s on Bonnie. Ungrateful bunch. Both of them can rot in hell; I’ll never forgive them for killing DA Ron Miller.

Side: You can check out my list of everyone who matters that has died on the show, using the link in my bio.

Frank and Annalise finally let the truth about Miller’s involvement in Nate Sr.’s death come out and Bonnie’s not having any part of it. The lie was all that kept Bonnie and Nate sane, that their decision to take Miller’s life was justified. Now that the truth is out, I’m guessing it’s what will push those two to turn on Annalise.
Well, if it’ll stop Frank and Bonnie from becoming an item, I welcome this change with partially-opened arms, though.

HTGAWM: The Show’s Having The Time Of Its Life

So much happened in last week’s episode of How To Get Away With Murder, S06E04, but I want to first talk about this guy, Solomon Vick, aka Papa Mikaela.

His world seems like something out of a TEDx conference, very different from what our favs have been living in. And I’m very excited about all the many possibilities his arrival promises for the show.

Then, there’s Annalise and her budding multiple love arcs. Tegan clearly has feelings her, she’s had it since last season, and now this guy I’ve forgotten his name, but this is his first episode on the show and I swear he’s got it got for Annalise, that’s if he isn’t faking it.

Clearly, Ms. Keating is at a point in her life (and storyline) where she’s once again conflicted about her sexuality, but time will tell who she settles with, that’s if either doesn’t betray her first.

Frank will be lucky to still be alive after that brutal beating. He deserves it though, going into that warehouse after Laurel like that was stupid.

I wonder what brings Ashur sister into town. And I also wonder if Connor will sleep with her to get back at Ashur for sleeping with his mom. I love a good pay back story 😁.

Oliver and Connor’s threesome: weird couple trying to spice up their marriage πŸ˜‚.

Nate is crazy if he thinks he can snitch on Annalise and live to tell the tale. His death obviously beckons.

This was a good episode. A filler that didn’t feel like a filler, #Supernatural could learn on for two things. I really enjoyed it.

What did I miss? Tell me.

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..

HTGAWM: Who Is Gabriel Maddox?Β 

If you watched the season 4 finale of ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ you almost certainly didn’t miss this fine face at the closing minutes.

Thankfully, the mystery surrounding the Castillos and who killed Wes has finally being resolved; we now have a new mystery to deal with: whose child is this? 

Who is Gabriel Maddox?
Most obvious answers are, he’s either Bonnie’s long-assumed-dead son or Annalise’s long-thought-dead son. It’ll be good to acknowledge that the finger(s) pointing to these two could be a misdirect and he (Gabriel Maddox) could be the spawn of a background character close to our band of merry-murderers. Only time will tell.

HTGAWM s04e14 Brief Recap

[SPOILERS] 

After dragging on for almost two seasons, the mystery of Wes’s death has almost been concluded. Finally! πŸ’ƒ πŸ•Ί. Who killed Wes? Or rather, who and who joined hands to permanently silence Wes because he had a statement to give that’d have stopped them from making MORE money πŸ’°. Hmm. Your guess is as good as mine… 😊… It was the Castillos! πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘. 

Mama Laurel got Wes to trust her enough to believe she had Laurel’s interest at heart. In this case, she understood Laurel’s interest to be making more money, which Wes’ life stood against (sort of). So, she invited Papa Laurel to take care of it (the father of their grandchild). Talk about what rich people do to keep their wealth increasing. 

In this episode, a lot of lingering plot threads were tied up and a possible ones opened as we head into the season finale. Standing out is the possibility that Bonnie could be dead. πŸ˜” 😒. By next week we’ll know for sure. 

Have you watched the episode? 

Did you like it? 

Do you want Bonnie dead? πŸ˜‚ 

Let’s talk.
