TotL – 10 Must-See Television Shows in 2018
The new year is newly here, and while we’re kissing 2017 a fine goodbye with some end of year/best of things, we’re also ushering in 2018 with a smile and hope. We’ve covered some of the comic books the Outright Geeks are looking forward to this year, and I’m going to be touching on some movies and TV that you do not want to miss. There’s lots of quality TV in store for the coming year, and here’s 10 Must-See Television Shows in 2018.
Honorable Mention: The Winter Olympics
I’m a sucker for the Olympics. The idea that the world puts down arms and ignores international politics for a couple weeks to play some games together is just really cool. I know, almost none of that really happens, but it’s a cool thought.
10. Doctor Who season 11
New year, new Doctor, new adventures! There’s lots of folks getting hung up on the new female Doctor, but they should ignore their own silly biases and just enjoy some Doctor Who.
9. Lost In Space
We have no trailer, no poster, and barely a cast but I’m so stoked to see what Netflix can bring to this now ancient franchise. Lost in Space is scheduled to be released in May 2018 on Netflix.
8. Umbrella Academy
Gerard Way’s breakout comic book hit is, yes, getting an adaptation on a streaming network. It’s really all the rage, but look for Umbrella Academy to have some great crossover support. People are going to just love this.
7. G.L.O.W. season 2
Netflix surprised the hell out of me with season 1 of G.L.O.W., and season 2 has not been dated in any way, shape, or form, I just know we’re getting it in 2018, and I cannot wait.
6. Series of Unfortunate Events season 2
I forgot all about this show coming back this year until we got the New Year’s Eve reminder trailer. You can find that trailer below and the second season of Lemony Snicket’s terrible tale this year.
5. Altered Carbon
Yes, another Netflix show, but this one is adapted from a novel, and the gritty sci-fi genre is quite robust. But I’m not going to let that stop me from enjoying this show a ton.
4. One Strange Rock
A nature documentary? Yeah, I know, I can’t help myself. But look at that list of people involved, and you know there’s going to be some great video footage, and lots of nature drama (one of my favorite kinds).
3. PKD Electric Dreams
The master, Philip K Dick, is finally getting the name recognition he deserves, and I’ve been pushing for new anthology series for years. So this may just be my favorite new show of the year!
2. Daredevil season 3
There’s not much to say. The Defender left Matt Murdock in the best of places from a comic book fan’s perspective, and it’s going to be so great to see the Man Without Fear back at the top of his game. And maybe, just maybe, we’ll get Bullseye!
The final season…at least, the final one with everyone’s favorite agents. X-Files has had such a long and storied history, and this season looks to wrap things up with a bang…and aliens!
See a mistake? Disagree with the choices? Let us know what you thing!
