Just a Jumble of Favorite Things in Media From This Year

by robinhardwick


I’m kind of over making structured lists of best of the year stuff, and you can see what I previously talked about here.  Here’s a general glurge of everything else:

The scene from Girls when Lena Dunham and Donald Glover fight over politics. And pretty much the rest of the season.

The lord of my universe, Chuck Palahnuik, and his book Doomed.

This sketch from Key & Peele.:

Parks and Recreation, because, duh.

This episode of Go Bayside! with Paul F. Tompkins.

Hugo Schwyzer’s twitter meltdown. I know, I shouldn’t. This man is mentally ill. But I could not look away.

This sketch from Inside Amy Schumer, and not of the rest of the show.

Every moment of the show Veep. Especially anything involving Jonah. Or Amy. Or everyone. Or The Leviathan.

ENLIGHTENED obviously. Minus the impending doom of the demise.

The brief run of Don’t Trust the B–in Apt 23. I was skeptical at first, but the dark humor grew on me.  Watch it. It’s not even a binge, there’s only 19 episodes.

The Adult Swim trifecta of Childrens Hospital, NTSF:SD:SUV, and The Heart, She Holler.

Jenna Malone as Joanna Mason.


This episode of The Fogelnest Files with Rodney Ascher, director of Room 237.

Blackfish and the agony of experiencing it.

V/H/S/ 2, especially the cult documentary segment: “PAPA!”

The ABCs of Death. Most of them. Especially “D is For Dogfight” and “V is for Vagitus

The trailer for Escape From Tomorrow. Not the actual film, but the trailer.

This sketch from Portlandia.

Every goddamn episode of the web series The Most Popular Girls In School.

The podcasting world of Andy & Eizabeth Laime. 

Reading The Disaster Artist and learning that Tommy Wiseau really related to Tom Ripley in The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Throwing Shade, obviously.

The fact that It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is nine seasons in and still great. Due to the fact that they don’t ever change the show or the status of the characters, and don’t try to fix something that doesn’t need fixing.
