2017 Best of Lists

Postby richsmith » Tue Dec 05, 2017 1:39 pm

As TP:TR will likely end up on a number of year-end Best Of lists, much to the chagrin of many here, it might be worth having a single thread to place them in.

So far:

Vulture -- #1: http://www.vulture.com/2017/12/best-tv- ... -2017.html

Sight and Sound -- #2: http://www.bfi.org.uk/features/best-films-2017/ (counted as a feature film)

My vote would be in the Profoundly Disappointed thread.

Wow. I bet that'll change many people's minds. Matter of fact, the Profoundly Disappointed will probably abolish their own thread as a consequence of realizing their foolish error...

Also, Metacritic is aggregating the various Best Of lists into one master list. TP:TR is currently #2 overall, behind The Leftovers:

Hats off to Vulture for awarding Peaks both #1 & #2 -- & before I say this, I know the writer was on holidays at the time -- but I can't help but lol that he watched part 8 on his iphone (I would've waited, personally).

The Playlist has it at #1, with probably the perfect line to end the film-vs-TV debate: "Movie, show, novel, tasting menu, designer fragrance or improvisational jazz opus, “Twin Peaks: The Return” was 2017’s best thing."

https://theplaylist.net/best-tv-shows-2 ... cb-content

It looks likely according to the Metacritic poll aggregator to end up runner-up to The Leftovers, another fine show. Still, not bad.

Return to “Season 3 (2017) The Return (Spoilers)”
