The Best TV Shows of 2017 – The Ringer
100% agree with The Leftovers and Halt and Catch Fire. Amazing final seasons to two of my all-time favorite shows.
Other 2017 seasons I enjoyed: The Sinner, The Handmaid’s Tale, Legion, Master of None, Preacher, Mindhunter (except the last episode), and Patriot.
