TV in 2022 has been a mixed bag, from some really great shows which are below, to some truly terrible shows like She-Hulk, The Witcher: Blood Origins, and Willow. You have voted and here are the results.
Special Mention – The Terminal List
This is not on the list, which was completely
my Drunken Yoda’s fault, but it did deserve a mention since it was a pretty decent show. I’m sure it would have been in the top ten, but my Drunken Yoda’s bad for missing it off the list.
10th – Cobra Kai
This is one of those series that shouldn’t do that well, but, it’s just so much fun to watch It’s a soap opera but with Karate. They do keep bringing characters back, so here’s a sneak peek at the next series.
9th – 1883
I haven’t seen this, but I know a few of you have, since it’s in the top ten. It follows the Dutton family in the Old West. It’s written by Taylor Sheridan, who is building a very good resume of watchable TV and movies.
8th – Tulsa King
Another one on my list to binge in 2023 and another one by Sheridan. This time following Sly Stallone as he embraces his age, and starts to build a new criminal empire in Tulsa, Oklahoma. A new IP for 2022 and you liked it.
7th – Yellowstone
Another Sheridan production, this is has now had 5 seasons, and this year’s seemed just as good as the others. It must be, you put it in the top ten.
6th – Andor
The grown up Star Wars series that was, too little too late. Most of the other Disney series have just been “churned out” but Andor had a different set of writers and production staff. The result was that most of you enjoyed it.
5th – House of Dragon
Again, I’m going to say this one is a bit of a surprise since it’s a sequel to Game of Thrones and that ended terribly, but this new series was actually good. A pleasant surprise to everyone.
4th – Stranger Things
Personally, I don’t think there’s been a bad season of Stranger Things. It’s got 80’s nostalgia, Force Powers, a great cast, and monsters. Season 4 was a treat to watch, all 45 hours of it.
3rd – Severance
This was a great series and an original IP for 2022, which was a nice change. People go to work but have their minds wiped about the outside world until they leave for the day. It was very clever and ended on a cliffhanger, so roll on season 2.
2nd – Reacher
We had lil’ Tom Cruise playing Reacher in two movies, but this series had “man god” Alan Ritchson playing him in a series based on the Lee Child books. It was clever, funny, and brutal in places. Just a great murder mystery with added violence.
1st – Better Call Saul
Let me start by saying, the voting between this and Reacher was very close, in fact only 1 vote in it.
This originally started off as a spin-off from Breaking Bad, following the trials and tribulations of criminal lawyer Jimmy McGill before he met up with Walter and Jesse.
Bob Odenkirk was perfectly cast in the series, which ended in this sixth season. Again, it’s on my watch list but I have been told it was a perfect way to end it.
So there you have it, your top TV of 2022. There are a few I need to get watching that are straight onto my list. Have you seen them all? Did you agree with the list?
