My Favorite Things of 2017

One of my favorite ways to end a year is to look back at all the entertainment I discovered and think about what stuck with me, and share my favorites with you.

As always, my disclaimer: "favorite" is not the same as "best." You're not going to find a ton of prestige dramas on the lists below. In a year that was such a dumpster-fire on so many levels, I found a lot of comfort and value in stories that made me smile, or that were about people supporting and trusting each other.

So, without further ado . . . these are a few of my favorite things. (Schnitzel with noodles not included.)

Favorite Television:
I watched a lot of TV in 2017, and narrowing down this list to just ten shows was insanely difficult. I had to leave off favorites like Playing House (even harder to leave off this list since it was sadly cancelled a few weeks ago) or Black-ish (which just keeps getting stronger). This really could be a list of twenty or maybe thirty . . . but I have decided that…

I'm Good*
