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..

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 Finale Reviewย 

Okay. What did I just watch!!!? ๐Ÿ˜ฑ … Scenes more heartbreaking than Infinity War’s. ๐Ÿ˜ข.  I’m sad, but let’s get right to it. 

This season, our favourite agents tackled time travel like never seen before, with the trick question ‘Is time a fixed entity?’ repeatedly popping up. Well, in the final episode of what’s been a tremendously interesting season we had our answer(s). Time isn’t fixed. In Jemma Simmons words, “Time isn’t fixed. It’s a fluid, ever-changing, beautiful thing.” And that’s what it is. Though it took us to new, dark places to achieve this new timeline but I’m sure we can live with it. Hopefully. 

I was sad to see Talbot go the way he did. He’s been an integral character since the early days of the show, helping our heroes get out of tight corners with the government. His misguided conversion to the dark side further butresses the point that today’s hero ๐Ÿ‘ฎ can be tomorrow’s villain… ๐Ÿ˜ˆ. Not to excuse him of his mass murdering offenses in anyway, but he, too, was a casualty in a war he didn’t ask for. His military training became his  when mixed with gravitonium, and his corpse litters space as evidence that evil never pays. At least in fiction ๐Ÿ˜. 

Where the road leads for Coulson, May and Fitz is best left to the imagination. Agent May went with Coulson to the island that looks like Hawaii, but I’ll best it’s Tahiti (who remembers? ๐Ÿ˜‰). Fitz, on-the-go other hand, has been left without the use of his legs, but I’m willing to bet he and Jemma can find a way for him to bounce back to his job, after all they live in a world with high-tech, magic and all the cheats that make life sweeter… ๐Ÿ˜.

Minor arcs 

  1. I’d always been interested in seeing how Deke would be written off, so I was sad it was done so poorly. He just wasn’t on screen again, without any explanation. ๐Ÿ˜’. Not cool, SHIELD. Not cool at all. 
  2. Mack’s the new Director of SHIELD. Way to go, big fella! 

Overall, this was a great season. Few shows get better with each new season… Agents of SHIELD is on top of that list. ๐Ÿ‘. 

The show returns Summer 2019, that’s more than a year from now, with a shorter episode order. I wonder why life’s so unfair to the good ones?  ๐Ÿ˜ข  ๐Ÿคง. 

What was your favourite moment this season? 

Who was your favourite character(s)?

Tell me, I wanna know. ๐Ÿ˜‰.

Agents of SHIELD’s 100th Episode

[SPOILER ALERT] ๐Ÿ˜ˆ…๐Ÿ˜‚ 

I don’t know how else to express my love for this show, ๐Ÿ˜, everything is perfect with it. A show that gets better with each episode/season is rare (tell yourself the truth), AoS does it with so much ease you want to deliver parcel of kisses to its writers every week, ๐Ÿ˜˜. 

Five years in and struggling ratings, ๐Ÿ˜”, AoS finally hit the 100th mark, which is a big deal. There’s been so much fanfare leading up to the episode’s premiere, and thankfully it didn’t disappoint. The episode was a delicious dish ๐Ÿฅ—of nostalgia, with the return of many old faces returned (still remember Deathlok, Hive and Lash? ๐Ÿ˜‰), properly spiced with the long-awaited wedding of fan-favourite couple Jemma and Fitz. Topping it all was the dessert, ๐Ÿฅ, revealing Deke’s parentage. 

If anyone should ask you for one time when I’m usually happiest, confidently tell them it’s mostly after watching Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD! ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘

Rinzy’s best TV shows of the season 2016/2017

It’s the month of June, a month after most of our favorite TV shows have taken a bow for the season. As expected, most networks have rolled out announcements for shows that will an won’t be returning to our screens (that’s a topic for another time). Today, Rinzy will be listing TV shows that gave him excitement week after week, shows that caused him inability to sleep because of anticipation. This is Rinzy’s review for best shows of the TV season 2016/2017.

  • Arrow (S5)

Arrow - New team

Oh! Ohh! Ooooh! My sweet sweet Arrow. Who would have every thought it was possible for a show that has lot its way for two seasons to get back on track? Definitely not me. But with the miracle of this season, I’ve learnt that nothing is impossible with regards to this.

Behind every Hero there must be a more awesome Villain. Arrow’s fifth season buttressed that point. Since the time of Slade Wilson, Arrow hasn’t received much in terms of villain’s development, until now. Prometheus is his name, the man who gave Arrow a new breath of fresh life. I enjoyed every little detail of this season, every episode. Prometheus was so good and the effects of his existence so awesome that he committee suicide to drive home his point.

  • Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (S4)

aos

 Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been one of the most consistent shows on TV today. Since its sophomore year, AoS has consistently upped its game in a way that’ll easily make some low budget SciFi movie go to bed in shame. This year, they did it again: Bigger and Better they call it, and its because the show’s producers did their homework well with the three ppd story formula (and also because of The Ghostrider). No hard guesses why AoS is easily one of my favorites this year. It’s a pity that the long future of this show is in doubts because of ratings; I keep wondering why same people invest so much time in insane shows. Don’t answer that: I know why.

  • Feud

Feud

Anything with Jessica Lange is Okay by me. Yes! Then, through in Susan Saradon and a host of others jn a shpw self titled ‘Feud’, amd you’ve got me hooked for 8 weeks. Feud was easily one of my best choice for 2017: A time-period show based on the constant friction between two household actresses of the 20’s. Who wouldn’t love that?

  • Legion (S1)

    โ€‹
    For as far back my memories go, I’ve been a fan of all things Xmen. I grew up loving them. But for some reason, I couldn’t keep up with Legion when it originally aired in Febrary. I recently tried it again, and gbam! Awesome. This show is arguably one of my favorite this year. Thankfully, it’s returning for another round of adventure with The Shadow King.

    TV Recap: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (S04 E22) – season finale

    All season I’ve been full of praise for this season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Tuesday’s finale didn’t disappoint at all. The three not so separate pods (Ghostrider, LMD, The Framework) all came together for one befitting, finely interwoven episode that put everything to a comfortable end.

    So, after last week’s final episode’s appearance from Ghostrider, it will he best to say he owned this episode. If his confirmation that there’s some sort of mulitverse in the MCU is anything to go by, season five promises to be AoS’ biggest yet.

    The epic confrontation that was Aida vs Ghostrider was a delight to watch at every scene they featured. The fear on Mallory Jansen (Aida’s actress’) face was beautifully crafted at every point of confrontation. I must say that Mallory is a very talented actress who I hope gets better and bigger gigs after this.

    There’s the issue with S.H.I.E.L.D. and its public image. The show features this long time storyline but this time ups its game by putting the life of the only military person on their side in grave danger – General Talbot. Aida’s big play was to use one of those Daisy LMDs to shoot Talbot in front of a dozen eye witnesses and a CCTV camera. Though I’m still wondering why he’d survive a shot to the head… but… it’s all good.

    The average human has a lot of emotions  all trying to outweigh itself. The one Team Shield uses to defeat Aida is fear. Fear of the Ghostrider. Fear of been alone and responding with revenge against Fitz for choosing Jemma over her. When Aida takes away her frustrations on Jemma to better send Fitz nuts, it’s those actions that sent Aida to her grave (one she deserved). In one surprising twist, Ghostrider inside Coulson (surprise, surprise) puts an end to Aida. I must comment here that every scene that had Ghostrider in was awesome, beautiful CGI, impressive performance from Gabriel Luna.

    I noticed though that Antoine and the either LMDs specially created by Aida weren’t destroyed this season. Time will tell if they’ll feature in season five’s story. And talking about season five, at the last moments of the season, it’s obvious we’re going to space – a certain set of men (could be aliens behind those fleshes) arrest them, only for Coulson in particular to be shown waking up inside a containment in space.

    I applaude Jed Whedon and his team for the success of this season, and hope by the time AoS returns midseason, January 2018, they’ll continue with more awesome stories.

    Tell me what you thought about this episode.

    AoS: Aida has always been the Big-bad.

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s time is almost over for this season. Worse is, no announcement has yet been made about a renewal for season 5. RR does believe we’ll make it into the new season.

    I haven’t stopped pouring praises to the storyline this season: it has been a huge upgrade from last season (which was also awesome.)

    When the season started, AIDA (stands for Artificial Intelligence Digital Assistance) was thought to be a good guy of some sort, but by the time the Darkholme was introduced we could see she was deep into a mission (with Radcliffe), but time also revealed her to be after goals of her own that shamed her creator. Now, AIDA is a living breating bring, which makes me feel I should begin to refer to her as Aida and not the acronym.

    After the escape from the Framework, it was shown Aida had the power of teleportation. Every fan of AoS knows that such power can only be had if one is an Inhuman. After showing so much hate against Inhumans inside the Framework as Madame Hydra one would think she hated then totally. But that’s not true. Aida had Fitz experiment on Inhumans to understand how to code there abilities into humans, and that’s exactly what she did to her new vessel.

    In this week’s episode 21, Aida demonstrated three abilities:

    1. Teleportation – Similar to Gordon’s. Gordon was one of the leaders of the Afterlife in season 2.
    2. Electricity – Similar to Lincoln, Daisy’s late boyfriend.
    3. Healing factor – This makes us remember The Wolverine.

    Aida is total badass. Fitz finally recovered frim his hangover and chose Jemma over Aida, and she is angry. Thank God Ghost rider is back, I feel only he has the power to put Aida to shame.

    AoS returns on ABC.
