Top 15 Shows and Episodes of 2018

Comments Off on Top 15 Shows and Episodes of 2018

In case you haven’t heard, there’s a lot of TV. A lot. Close to 500 scripted shows, in fact. That’s made these “end of year” lists absolutely brutal.

So here are a few caveats:

1) This is a hybrid list of the best episodes and shows I watched this year. My rules were I could only have one overlap with show and episode (which also happens to be my personal pick for best show/episode of the year) and I couldn’t pick a show if I hadn’t finished every episode that aired in 2018. (That also means shows I really have been enjoying like KIDDING and ESCAPE FROM DANNEMORA aren’t on the list. There just are not enough hours in the day.)

2) Given the sheer amount of TV, it’s quite possible/probable your favorite isn’t represented here. I’m sorry! But feel free to let me know what particularly excited you this year in the comments.

That being said, here is the list (in alphabetical order)…

CASTLE ROCK Season 1 Finale: Dustin Thomason on That Mysterious Smile, Timelines, and Season 2

[This post contains spoilers for the first season of CASTLE ROCK.]

CASTLE ROCK’s first season ended with a number of questions…and a whole lot of possibilities for where the series could go next.

Details of the already-ordered second season are being kept under lock and key, but a potential tease was dropped in a mid-credits sequence: Jackie Torrance (Jane Levy), niece of “The Shining’s” driven-mad Jack, mentioned she was westward bound to the Overlook Hotel, the location of  the 1977 novel.

But certainly if the writers don’t go down that road, there were enough lingering threads they could return to in the next installment of the anthology series. The penultimate episode of the season opened up the possibility of multiple universes (and timelines)…and the final shot of The Kid (Bill Skarsgård) smirking was just vague enough to go practically anywhere.

So how did the pieces of the puzzle fall into place? And what comes next? CASTLE ROCK co-showrunner Dustin Thomason shared a few teases about what went down and what’s to come…

With more than four decades of material to play with, Stephen King’s various novels and stories are continuously being adapted. (Since 2017, the list includes films THE DARK TOWER, IT, GERALD’S GAME, and 1922, while MR. MERCEDES just started its second season on television.) Hulu’s CASTLE ROCK is a bit of an abnormality, because while the series shares a character directly from King’s world (and it’s set in one of his most famous fictional locations), the story is an original one.

What happened to Ruth Deaver (Sissy Spacek)?

In the last episode of the newly-renewed CASTLE ROCK, the mysteriously bloody The Kid (Bill Skarsgård) seemingly caused mayhem in the Deaver home…and Alan Pangborn (Scott Glenn) couldn’t find his long-time love.

Of course, The Kid has his own reasons for wanting to destroy Alan’s life: the former sheriff saw the young man in the trunk of Shawshank Prison boss Dale Lacy’s (Terry O’Quinn) car, and let Dale lock him away for years. (Still unexplained is how The Kid managed to not age over all of the years he was held captive.)

In Wednesday’s episode, “The Queen,” Ruth spends some quality time with The Kid. Check out some photos from the hour…
