This was a great thread idea because it was mad how quickly Comedy
(Schitt’s Creek) came to me yet how literally no Drama feels comfortably the best of the last five years to me.
It should be The Crown but the second I thought of that I was also keen to reject it which I think shows the impact that the last two seasons of it have had on me as without doubt I would pick it if only the first two had aired. Ultimately, it settled strangely to me on Big Little Lies and, surprisingly, Stranger Things. They are the only two Dramas that I have not been disappointed by in any major way. But both have their clear flaws so it feels odd to pick either. I think I’m going with Stranger Things because it is a consistent delight and has thrice turned me from someone who loves a weekly viewing into a frantic binge watcher.
As for why I think Schitt’s Creek was just an instant confirmed thought, it aired four fantastic seasons in the last five years that only improved as they went along. Completely head and shoulders above the rest in this department of sustained quality. (The best single season of comedy in the past five years is of course Fleabag season 2.)October 27, 2021 at 9:34 am #1204543024
Whilst I’m here and feeling rebellious, the best limited series of the past five years is A Very English Scandal and it’s not even close. Three perfect hours. Runner-up would probably be It’s a Sin.October 27, 2021 at 9:40 am #1204543042
