Diving into Seventy Different Television Series

It's beguiling to me that I spent 350+ hours watching television. Fourteen and a half days glued to my boob tube. Dang! That seems like a lot… but also that's less than an hour a day… so maybe it wasn't that much? But I digress. What did I watch this past year?

Of all those shows, which resonated with me?


Marvel's WandaVision - The perfect blend of pop culture, nostalgia, and post-modernism.



Ted Lasso - Finally caught the fever. #Believe



Star Wars: Rebels - Recommend by a friend, this show got me hooked on the Star Wars animated universe.



The Head - If you need a perfect single season mystery, look no further.



Squid Game - It was as close to perfection as TV got this year.


Looking at all the television that impacted me this year, if I were to guess at a common thread it might be characters that were dead-set in trying to manifest something greater in both themselves and those around them. From Seong's need to seed hope in order to flower humanity in his fellow contestants, to Wanda's desire to find closure for her trauma via a ramshackle community, to Ted's belief in the power of believing in everyone, I gravitated towards leads that were on a mission — and they weren't going to take "no" for an answer.
