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)…

THE X-FILES: Twenty Years Later, ‘How the Ghosts Stole Christmas’ Is Still a Gift

It’s difficult to single out a definitive episode of THE X-FILES, a show that never wanted to be easily defined. But if you had to try, you could do a lot worse than “How the Ghosts Stole Christmas,” a holiday treat that comes almost dangerously close to embodying everything that makes Fox Mulder and Dana Scully work.

THE X-FILES 10-episode season is nearly over—and this Wednesday’s hour is the final standalone installment of season 11.

In “Nothing Lasts Forever,” Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully’s (Gillian Anderson) investigation into organ thefts leads them in a much, much, much creepier direction: a cult obsessed with staying young.

Check out some photos from the hour.

THE X-FILES: 4 Teases About ‘Familiar’

Comments Off on THE X-FILES: 4 Teases About ‘Familiar’

Cr: Shane Harvey/FOX

After just barely surviving an elaborate A.I. attack in last week’s episode of THE X-FILES, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) are back to more human matters in Wednesday’s new hour. (But, you know, as a reminder, always tip your freaking robot waiters/chefs. Never forget the lessons of “Rm9sbG93ZXJz.”)

In “Familiar,” Fox previews that “Mulder and Scully investigate the brutal animal attack of a little boy in Connecticut, while suspecting darker forces are at play.” And, unfortunately for the town, that’s just the start of their problems.

And, of course, things are never exactly as they seem. While we don’t want to reveal (or spoil) too much, here are a few more teases about the episode. Read more

When a young boy is brutally attacked by what appears to be an animal on Wednesday’s episode of THE X-FILES, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) are on the case to figure out what went wrong. But naturally, they don’t believe things are exactly as they appear.

Check out some photos from “Familiar”:

In Wednesday’s episode of THE X-FILES “Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) find themselves targets in a deadly game of cat and mouse.” And while the duo has found themselves in tough spots before, the hour, “Rm9sbG93ZXJz”—written by Shannon Hamblin & Kristen Cloke, and directed by Glen Morgan—is told with only a handful of lines of dialogue.

Check out some photos from the ambitious installment:

THE X-FILES is returning on Sunday, January 24th, and Fox is giving it one of the best launching pads of the midseason: the post-NFC Championship Game slot.

But given X-FILES’ built-in awareness — and six-episode run — it’s understandable why the decision to give it that plum spot needed a bit more explaining.
