Written By:

There is a silence that follows the realization of missing something as inane as a year when all it does is provide us with a map.

Yet, it feels so close to home, to know that there is an idea like a year, mapped out for us and even then, we feel nostalgic.

In this moment of nostalgia, don’t you think a rerun of the Best TV Shows 2017 is in order?

Best TV Shows of 2017

Here is a list of best TV Shows for the year. Check if you have watched them all or add them to your watching list.

Speechless (ABC)

Speechless TV Show

If a kid with Cerebral Palsy invokes pity, JJ in Speechless begs to differ. His invigorating wit and biting humor run the show in many ways, along with his mother Maya’s take-charge attitude, his father Jimmy’s I-don’t-give-a-care attitude, his sister’s I-won’t-take-a-no attitude, and his brother Ray’s I’m-always-right attitude.

The DiMeo family is ever entertaining and this season, the fun is no less. And who can forget JJ’s adorable aide Kenneth?

American Vandal (Netflix)

American Vandal TV Show 2017

“Who did the dicks?” always brought forth a series of embarrassed chuckles but soon became a catchphrase in American Vandal. The story revolves around teens investigating the case of a preposterous high-school graffiti.

As inconsequential as it may be, the ways how something so trivial forms a link with a life-altering fact is what makes this show one of the Best TV Shows 2017. It’s mockumentary at its finest.

The Punisher (Netflix)

The Punisher TV Show

It’s hard to imagine the combination of murky violence and bloodied rippling muscles inveigling any soft-spoken mind but The Punisher managed to check that box off.

The Frank Castle-centric drama took American violence to a whole new level- almost exploring the possibilities of a world looming on our horizon. The best part is the appearance of traumatized veterans who get a say, finally! Some of the episodes that were an absolute bang are Kandahar and Virtue of the Vicious.

This TV series went off a tangent from mainstream ones and that’s why it is essentially one of the TV Shows to Watch 2017.

Big Little Lies (HBO)

Big Little Lies (Best TV Shows)

This would be the cocktail show of the year. It has gotten all the dramatic aspects that never fail to touch a chord with us.

Transformed from a mere beach read into moving pictures, this show is a stunning rendition of elementary school rivalries, tough motherhood, and friendships that are bound to last. Then there’s the delicious music!

Game Of Thrones (HBO)

Game of Thrones TV Show

It’s not only one of the best shows of the year but the best show of this decade. The fight of seven kingdoms for a single throne was not enough so now we have a Night King coming for them.

As its coming to its finale, the storyline becomes clearer and more predictable. But the huge following means that they can still spend millions on the show and the graphics will tell that story. Whether it’s the white walkers or the dragon, see them coming live on your screen.

One Day at a Time (Netflix)

One Day at a Time TV Shows

Here is the surprising joy of 2017 and therefore it is one of the Best TV Shows to Binge Watch- an update of Norman Lear’s own series from 1975. The Cuban American family’s varied opinions add a tang of morbid entertainment which sits cool with the multi-camera sitcom’s audience. It deals with a list of subjects starting from dating and ending at deportation.

Despite the shortcomings, their love is a fluffy cotton candy, and you nibble and nibble until the aftereffects of the twenty minutes die in your memories. Hold Please and Sex Talk are few of the exceptional episodes.

Insecure (HBO)

Insecure TV Show

We shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, likewise, we should NEVER judge a show by its name. Well, we did, and it clicked. Insecure attracted major part of the world population because yeah, we all are a tad insecure.

Although the second season didn’t have narration solidity as the first, it stuck with us. Insecure always stuck, no matter the consistency (pun unintended)!

The Good Place (NBC)

Best TV Shows 2017 - The Good Place Screenshot

The weekly glimpse into the afterlife is too tempting for our own good. The ways of Michael Schur have always been things of wonder, and The Good Place is no different.

It arouses an interest we can all own up to and Janet, who falls in love with an idiot, only makes it more appealing. Michael’s Gambit and The Trolley Problem are the best episodes of the show till date.

GLOW (Netflix)

Glow TV Show

The world doesn’t just have bad guys, it has bad girls too. GLOW bags the cup for TV Shows to watch 2017 because it has a defending tone against male machismo.

The alien world of fascinating women and their glistening wrestler-skin is all too special. We love Ruth and her “bad guy” ways!

Dear White People (Netflix)

Dear White People TV Show On Netflix

After all the fun, we need a dose of solemnity to keep us on our toes and that’s the political show of the year, Dear White People was expanded from a movie into a series.

The occasional sprinkle of humor is delectable, and the theme of the series is something we can all look back upon. This world will never get better!

Broad City (Comedy Central)

Broad City TV Show

The never-ending departure is a good touch and the ever-boiling turmoil underneath the layers of the series is quite entertaining. The plot might not be very catchy, but the characters surely make up for it.

Broad City is real life on the telly. Florida and Witches remain the most memorable episodes in the show. It’s a fun show, different from all the action-packed ones and so, it is definitely one of the Best TV Shows to Binge Watch.

The Keepers (Netflix)

The Keepers is the voice of the marginalized and the downtrodden. It narrates a tale of mystery and it’s a world-based thriller in every essence.

It kicks off with the investigation of an unsolved murder which turns into a full-fledged version of the epitome of shock when we find out about the priest who’d raped dozens of girls.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (The CW)

Godless (Netflix)

Godless TV Show

If you are waiting for the second season of WestWorld, this was not the year for that. But you can still get some Western love with Godless.
