Question of the year: what were your favourite new shows of 2017? Here’s my Top 14!

TMINE’s about to take its traditional Christmas and New Year break. Normal business will resume on January 2nd with the Daily News et al.

But as usual, I’ll leave you with a specific question to keep you occupied in my absence: what were your favourite new shows of the year? Let everyone know your choices and the reasons below or on your own blog – or even on the shiny new TMINE Facebook page.

For the record, after the jump are my Top 14 shows from all over the world, in no particular order. Obviously, I’ve not watched every TV programme broadcast or acquired in the UK this year and I barely watched any live TV, so there are almost certainly some good shows that that I’ve left off the list – this is just the top “would recommend to a friend” shows of the ones I watched in 2017.

Snow joke

I love snow. Germany is great for snow. But snow is not great for aeroplanes.

All of which mean as lovely as it is to be in Germany right now, I’m supposed to be back in the UK and now I’m not coming home until tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed.

Assuming all goes well, normal service will resume on Tuesday. Entschuldigung und Wiedersehen!

TMINE takes its August break – see you in September (or maybe sooner)

It’s that time again. August is upon us, a month of little TV news, few new TV shows – and my annual pilgrimage to Greece.

The normal schedule will resume on September 4th, with daily TV news, Weekly Wonder Woman and reviews of all the best and worst TV shows from around the world. But I might drop in from time to time to post the occasional review of TV I might have watched – after all, at the very least I’ve got Marvel’s The Defenders to watch when I get back and Amazon’s just dropped the whole of The Last Tycoon on us.

On top of that, TMINE now has a Facebook page, so I could well be posting the occasional news item, amusing thing I’ve seen or even TV thought there, so feel free to drop by and Like it. Or keep chatting here with one another, reviewing shows you’ve seen yourselves. Just be an excellent to one another.

If you’re going on vacation yourself, I hope you have a great time. See you all refreshed and ready for more TV in the autumn!

New TMINE indexes

Or should that be indices? Well, whatever your preference, I finally figured out a way to add all the past half-decade or so’s “What Have You Been Watching?” mini-reviews to indices (WordPress’s ‘custom taxonomies’, in case you were wondering) and spent most of the weekend classifying them. Yes, even the ones that mysteriously changed their name to “What did you watch this week?” for a couple of years without my noticing.

So for you delectation there’s now a(n):

To add to the previously announced indices/indexes. You can access them all from the menus above.

I’m still toying with the idea of indices for individual countries (eg France, Australia), I haven’t yet done one for Theatre Reviews, and I’m probably going to be doing an Italian TV category, since it turns out I’ve reviewed more of it than I suspected, too. But I’m not quite sure how to add them to the menus without them getting clunky. I’ll have a think about that.

Let me know if you have any suggestions for additions to TMINE or want other indices.

TMINE on Facebook
TMINE

TMINE now has a Facebook page

It’s an excitingly modern world we live in and there’s this new-fangled thing called Facebook that you might have heard of and even use. Apparently, lots of people use it to keep up-to-date with each other, the news, events and what cats have been up to.

Anyway, since RSS feeds and Twitter might not be ‘your bag’, in an effort to give you all as many ways to keep up-to-date with TMINE, I’ve created a Facebook page for it. I’m not sure what to do with it yet – before you know it, I might be organising TMINE (vegan) barbecues there for y’all – but at the very least, it’ll have all the posts so you’ll know whenever I’ve posted anything new.

Hope that helps and that you like it! (Do you see what I did there?)
