As I mirror again on 2021, I discover my TV-watching to be discovered wanting. It’s not that I didn’t have choices.

And I’m in all probability forgetting one. The issue isn’t an absence of exhibits to observe; it’s figuring out the place the hell to start out.
I’m not saying I didn’t watch any TV. I began the 12 months with Cobra Kai, labored my method by way of many episodes of The Nice British Baking Present (each single one among which is great), regarded ahead to each new episode of LEGO Masters with my LEGO-obsessed son, caught up on Star Trek: Picard, and located time for a lot of a interval drama, which I’m solely barely embarrassed to confess are my final jam.

Now what?” So I requested my colleagues: What did you watch this 12 months? I needed to know not simply their favourite sequence however about their favourite episode inside that sequence.
