So, five of my most favorite shows made the list.
There was our beloved Outlander.
6. Outlander on Starz
Outlander S2 was all over the place. Claire and Jamie traveled to France and back to Scotland, along the way enduring some of the most heartbreaking moments fans have ever seen. The season showed the breakdown of their marriage, Jamie’s struggle to try to get power over the Jacobite cause, set up for the Battle of Culloden, the couple’s baby dying, and Claire having sex with another man. However, the season finale may have been the most tear-jerking. As Jamie is getting ready to go fight, and die, alongside his men, he forces Claire to go back through the stones. In the future, Claire is now 20 years old, and returns to Scotland only to have all the memories of her time with Jamie come flooding back, not to mention the couple’s daughter, Brianna, find out the truth about her paternity.
Of course, The Walking Dead is included, though this hasn’t been one of my favorite seasons.
4. The Walking Dead on AMC
Although Season 7 of The Walking Dead has been met with mixed reviews, the last half of Season 6 was certainly interesting. The show fake killed the character of Glenn, revealed that Maggie was pregnant, put Abraham and Sasha in a romantic relationship, introduced the Saviors and their leader Negan. Meanwhile, Season 7 has seen the most gruesome and brutal deaths of two beloved characters, Glenn and Abraham, while setting up some big things to come after the mid-season finale. It looks like the show is about to really pick up the pace in 2017.
And, the newbie, This is Us, is some of the best writing on television and the acting is superb!
3. This Is Us on NBC
This breakout new show has everyone talking. It all started when the trailer for the series was watched by millions online, and the show has continued to reveal stunning twists and turns along the way. Spanning many decades, this family unit has been through a lot, and the winter finale was not without drama as well. If you haven’t seen this show, catch up before new episodes begin airing in January. You won’t be sorry!
I was pleasantly surprised by how good Stranger Things is. If you haven’t yet watched it, you really should. It is excellent!
2. Stranger Things on Netflix
Netflix nailed it with this original series. Stranger Things became the talk of the town online as fans binged on the sci-fi thriller set in the 80s, with the perfect amount of nostalgia. Season 2 is in the works, and fans are already searching for any information about what’s to come.
Then, there was Game of Thrones! This was the best season e-v-a-h!
1. Game of Thrones on HBO
Let’s face it, Game of Thrones is amazing, and every episode is amazing. If you haven’t watched the show yet, what are you waiting for? Seriously? With only two seasons left, GoT set up some seriously crazy storylines last season. Not to mention delivered some shocking moments and epic battles, which makes it number on on our list!
