10 Best Shows of 2018

As evident by the many reboots and revivals on television, standing out in the crowd isn't an easy task. Those that do tend to blend genres and offer something truly unique to the viewer. It used to be easy to denote comedies and dramas merely by their time format. A half-hour show was a comedy and an hour-long show was a drama. Today's writers know that life is filled with comedy and drama, but their stories might unfold easier in half-hour or hour-long chapters. Related: 11 Biggest Disappointments of 2018 That's why a lot of the shows you'll find below fit into many categories. A troubled family on Succession is also one of the funniest, a supernatural horror series is a gorgeous family tragedy on The Haunting of Hill House, and the thriller that is Homecoming unfolds in 30-minute segments and has oddball characters, but isn't very funny. Take a look at what makes great TV in the era of Peak TV. See what you've been missing or what you've known all along. What was your best of 2018? 10. Barry - HBO Bill Hader takes a walk on the serious side as an assassin who wants to make good -- as an actor -- with Henry Winkler (in the comeback of the year) as his acting coach. Winkler delivers the comedy while Hader takes a surprising dramatic turn as the titular character. 9. Forever - Amazon To talk about Forever would be to ruin it for those who watch, as is the same with almost all of these shows. Maya Rudolph and Fred Armison are a couple who start out with as much love and excitement for each other as all relationships. It's how June and Oscar deal with the unpredictable that makes all the difference. 8. Pose - FX Pose was an the unexpected family drama people might have tuned out if they were not taken with the marketing campaign. Yes, there are many prejudices when faced with the unknown, but this Ryan Murphy program showcased the people under the flamboyant outfits from the advertising addressing their struggles for love, acceptance, and survival in a world that doesn't always understand them. 7. Succession - HBO Being rich can be a bitch, but so can being a part of a family with a controlling father, no matter your position in life. Those who set aside their contempt for the mega-wealthy and decided to allow the story of the Roy family wash over them saw some of the most dramatic and priceless exploits a family can deliver to the most tragic of consequences. 6. Counterpart - Starz Oscar winner J.K. Simmons does some of his best work as the Howard Silks in this unusual spy series from Justin Marks. The nature of individuality is at its core, and the mystery only deepens as the second season gets underway. 5. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel - Amazon Through two marvelous seasons, Rachel Brosnahan has killed as the former housewife finding her path. In the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 2, she slows down just enough to allow the supporting characters room to grow and take some of the spotlight for th..

The Affair: Dominic West “Shocked” by Ruth Wilson Pay Gap

Dominic West has broken his silence about the pay gap between him and Ruth Wilson on Showtime's The Affair. The actor has revealed that he was "shocked" to hear that Wilson was earning less than he was during her time on the premium cable drama. "I never ask what the money is on a show. It was more a question of if I wanted to do it," he said to Radio Times, adding: "So it woke me up to the issue. I never realised the disparity and the injustice." Wilson exited the show during The Affair Season 4 with her character being seemingly killed by her boyfriend, Ben (Ramon Rodriguez) and thrown into the ocean. While many initially thought pay parity could have been part of the reason for her Wilson's decision to exit the series, she later confirmed that her departure "isn’t about pay parity, and it wasn’t about other jobs,” while maintaining, “I’m not really allowed to talk about it.” Related: The Affair's Ruth Wilson" There's a Much Bigger Story Behind My Exit However, she did state that “there is a much bigger story” about why she left the Golden Globe-winning role of Alison Bailey behind. The way Wilson's exit has been handled has certainly raised a few questions, but fans are no closer to finding out the truth. Showrunner, Sarah Treem offered up the following statement when approached by the New York Times. We can’t speak for Ruth, but heading into Season 4, everyone agreed the character’s story had run its course. Ultimately, it felt like the most powerful creative decision would be to end Alison’s arc at the moment when she had finally achieved self-empowerment. The impact of her loss will be felt as the series concludes next season. We thank the many fans who embraced the character of Alison and especially thank Ruth for her indelible work over the past four seasons. The Affair has already been renewed for a fifth and final season, but there are some major changes on the horizon. Joshua Jackson who played Alison's on-screen husband, Cole Lockhart, is also reportedly out, but he might make a guest appearance to wrap up his arc. While there might be no Alison or Cole, their daughter Joanie will be front and center of The Affair Season 5. Related: The Affair Season 4 Episode 9 Review: Into the Ocean As previously reported, Anna Paquin will play the adult Joanie who returns to Montauk with the aim of learning the truth about her mother's death, but global warming will also have had an effect on the one-time tourist hotspot. The Affair Season 5 “will chronicle the aftermath of the [Season 4] finale’s horrific events and find the characters coming to terms with the consequences of their choices — as they make the realization that if they really want to change their futures they must first face the past," reads the official logline. "This final season is about how everything does really fall apart in the end, but somewhere in that wreckage, the seeds of change fi..

11 Biggest Disappointments of 2018

You may not even remember some of the shows on this list. Recalling others may make your face red. Related: 14 Impressive TV Performances from 2018 That's what happens when a highly anticipated television project becomes one of the biggest disappointments of the year. Tell us whether you agree or disagree and what disappointing venture of yours didn't make the list! 1. The Sinner Season 2 - USA Carrie Coon couldn't make sense of the predictable drivel that came from writers other than novel writer, Petra Hammesfahr. They tried to push the boundaries as was done in The Sinner Season 1, but it was a mess. 2. The Purge - USA With all the time available on TV, the show could have been much more than a ten-hour Purge night, but saving money on the gimmick might have been more appealing. The ties to the world outside of Purge night were nothing but left-wing propaganda for 2018, and that's lazy given The Purge series has been in existence since 2013 when a "Trump America" wasn't even a twinkle in anyone's eyes. 3. Camping - HBO Jennifer Garner returned to television for a role that made her look like a witch and her TV husband, David Tennant, look like a sniveling, egotistical, idiot. Not one of the characters had a redeeming quality. It was just awful. 4. Altered Carbon - Netflix Altered Carbon had all of the pieces to make a great sci-fi franchise, but what it lacked was relatable characters. The good news is the renewed series will return with a new cast since everyone lives in borrowed bodies. 5. The X-Files Season 11 - FOX Do you even remember that The X-Files aired in 2018? Although The X-Files Season 11 Episode 4, "The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat," was a fun standalone episode, the installments banking on the mythos of seasons past fell woefully short. Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny didn't even seem to be enjoying themselves anymore. Stick a fork in it. 6. Westworld Season 2 - HBO Westworld Season 2 should have been an extension of Westworld Season 1 after the explosive finale, but there was very little to connect to as the characters lost their footing any progress they had made. It was only when we were given backstory on characters previously unknown that a little light shined through, and that wasn't nearly enough to sustain a season. View Slideshow

The Orville Season 2 Episode 1 Review: Ja’loja

We've been waiting a long time for The Orville Season 2 Episode 1 and it was definitely a satisfying return. Goofy, busy, and with a juvenile bent, but ultimately enjoyable. I'll deal with the one major issue first: the characterization and treatment of Commander Kelly Grayson. She's second in command of the ship, arguably a better officer than Mercer in many ways, and is making every effort to keep their working relationship WORK despite her ex-husband repeatedly declaring his love for her. Related: Enjoy UNLIMITED access to thousands of Movies and TV shows with Amazon Prime Video. WATCH ANYWHERE. CANCEL ANYTIME! So why does she get painted as the emotional, unreasonable one? It was totally maddening to watching Cassius (the new guy) and Ed (the ex) discussing how to "handle" her. Here's my theory. A woman can't really love a man unless he's part-dope. Be a little stupid every day and really stupid once in a while but just don't be perfect. Mercer Permalink: Here's my theory. A woman can't really love a man unless he's part-dope. Be a little stupid... Added: December 31, 2018 Can't imagine that she's going to be impressed that Ed gave Cassius advice on how to win her back. Also, I can't believe she doesn't realize the Cassius didn't hit on Journey's "Open Arms" out of thin air. She's not stupid except, apparently, when she's reacting to relationship issues. Okay, rant over. There's a lot of fun (and not offensive) stuff here too. We'll start with dumb-funny and move up, shall we? Gordon's crush on Lt. Tyler was pretty adorbs. We learn a lot about his dating style and history. When he describes being dumped by his stalker... well, so many things made sense about that. Moreover, Scott Grimes does awkward verbal diarrhea like a master. I love it here. Like, I know for a lot of people, work is work. But for me, coming in here every day is like, 'That's not work.' I'm always like, 'Really? This is my job? How did I win at life?' But I did. I've won. Malloy Permalink: I love it here. Like, I know for a lot of people, work is work. But for me, coming in here... Added: December 31, 2018 And the fact that he just chickens out and bails after LaMarr puts in all the preparation, training and costuming (SO MANY ZIPPERS) is perfectly in line with Molloy's modus operandi. Some things haven't changed at all as seen in Alara's bad luck with dating. She's a bit more whiny about it now though. How many times did it come up? Pretty redundant and unnecessary to have her harp on a sucky love life although I'll admit that my favorite scene is Bortus' offer to set her up in reaction to her "complaint." Bortus: There is a young officer under my command who I have noticed also has no mate. If you wish, I will order him to mate with you. Kitan: Wow, that is the sweet..
