The Cooler gang reveals their favorites in the Best of 2017 TV Halfway. Plus, they discuss Genius Season 2, the Versace American Crime Story, and Han Solo.
This week at the Water Cooler, we’re taking stock of the year in television at the midway point. Yup, it’s our Best of 2017 TV Halfway annual segment. Megan, Joey, and I each reveal our top five television shows of 2017 thus far. Plus, we reveal some well deserved honorable mentions. These shows may eventually show up on our year-end list after some additional thought, analysis or rewatching.
The weekly TV Tidbits segment kicks off with National Geographic’s Genius Season 2’s newly revealed subject. Then, we take a look at the new season of American Crime Story which focuses on the 1997 murder of Gianni Versace. Finally in the movie world, we take a look at the recent announcement of Lucasfilm that Han Solo co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller of The Lego Movie were effectively fired. Can the blockbuster-to-be recover?
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
