A few surprises this morning, especially in the Television categories.
We went ahead and ranked all of the nominees in order of Most Likely to Win. Take a look at what came out ahead below:
I felt a little reluctant writing this up because I have not seen all of the great shows on TV today. So if your favorite isn’t on here, it’s not because I’m a “complete idiot.” It may just be because I haven’t seen it yet.
I’m watching somewhere between 20 and 30 shows that are currently still running. I thought about doing this as a top 5, but the top 10 are all fantastic and deserve recognition.
So here are the Top 10 Television Shows on Right Now:
I got into “House of Cards” a little late and I never felt like I fully fell in love with it. Still, it is consistently tense and well-written. It is currently on its third season, which was its weakest, however the show continues to educate us about the complex mannerisms of Washington as well as its anti-protagonist Frank Underwood.
The idea of good vs. evil is as old as time. It’s reflected in countless religions, myths, and art dating back thousands of years. I’ve seen several films, television shows, and played several video games that demonstrated that Good vs. Evil is too simplistic of a concept.
I had the pleasure of screening Denis Villeneuve’s “Sicario” a few days before its release, and it was tremendous. A beautiful film that reiterated the point that there is a fine line between good and evil. To say someone is inherently good or evil is to diminish what it is to be human. Humans are flawed, all of us with sporadic good and bad qualities.
