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.

AT&T also blocked the usage of Apple’s video chat service, FaceTime, in their network, so that customers would have to pay for more expensive data plans. Verizon blocked messages sent by abortion rights group NARAL, saying that their content was too controversial.
