I managed to watch 220 films in 2022 (woah!) and here’s my top picks for new things I viewed…
Best TV of 2022
Succession – Everyone’s favourite wacky family is back for more corporate hijinks. Best comedy on the tube.
The English – Not perfect – pants fall down a bit in episode 5 – but enough great stuff here to make this cool, weird western a top pick.
Severance – Love me some weirdo dystopian sci-fi.
Andor – Best Star Wars thing since the original trilogy. That said, there is not a lot of competition.
Gangs of London – Loved this ultaviloent gang (in London) show from the guy that made The Raid films.
House of the Dragon – Liked this prequel Game of Thrones thing quite a bit. Good dragons, incest and vicious children.
The Dropout – Good true story of scams and Steve Job turtlenecks.
Barry – Finally got into this awesome show. I even watched one episode twice in a row.
Only Murders in the Building – Love this nice little whodunnit with a great cast. Selena Gomez outshines grizzled veterans Steve Martin Short.
The Bear – Very happy I never worked in a restaurant.
