    I joined the boards in January 2018, so I hope I am not bothering people with this question. So what are your Top 10 episodes of 2017 and the first half of 2018?

    • Big Little Lies 1.07: You Get What You Need (absolutely the best)
    • The Handmaid’s Tale 1.03: Late
    • This Is Us 2.11: The Fifth Wheel
    • How to Get Away With Murder 4.13: Lahey v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
    • How to Get Away With Murder 4.08: Live. Live. Live.
    • The Crown 2.08: Dear Mrs. Kennedy
    • Game of Thrones 7.07: The Dragon and the Wolf
    • The 100 4.05: The Tinder Box
    • Homeland 6.05: Casus Belli
    • The Leftovers: The Book of Nora

    I have yet to see many shows from this year: Homeland, THT, Westworld etc… and I am sure they would take many spots in this list. Please share yours, I would be very interested in seeing your picks

    Just off the top of my head:

    “The Most Powerful Man in the World and his Identical Twin Brother” – The Leftovers
    “Beneath Her Heart” – Orphan Black
    “Once Bitten” – Big Little Lies
    “Gag and Throttle” – Orphan Black
    “I Have a Thing for Bathrooms” – Killing Eve

    Those are just the ones I can remember, but if I actively remember not just the episode but even the title without having to look it up, then I know the episode really stood out to me and I must have read about it A TON

    Part 8, Twin Peaks
    Part 17-18, Twin Peaks (I consider them as a whole single unit and they were released together)
    Like People / It’s Always Been This Way, You’re the Worst (same as above)
    Teddy Perkins, Atlanta
    North of the Border, Atlanta
    FUBU, Atlanta

    I love seeing Handmaid’s Tale love. I can’t wait to start this season. I have watched some episodes of season 1 three times now, I cannot wait to see more.

    I love seeing some ACS love on this site. I honestly loved it. My favorite episode is “A Random Killing” though because Judith Light was just wow. But the penultimate episode was great too. Nice to see Homeland love as well. I cannot wait to start this season

    “The Spoils of War” – Game of Thrones “You Get What You Need” – Big Little Lies “The Gate” – Stranger Things “The Toll” – Ozark “Baggage” – The Handmaid’s Tale

    The Spoils of War almost made the cut, I adored the episode because it was a lot of fun to watch but they played it too safe IMO. More people should have died, people survived way too easily.
