My favorite tv series of 2021

I didn’t catch as many new shows as I would have liked this year (honestly, how can anyone keep up). I did enjoy watching some shows I missed the first time around like Broad City, Superstore, Nailed It!, and Manifest. And I must call out season 2 of Ted Lasso and the episode Beard After Hours which I loved so so much.

This list is my favorite TV series or miniseries that debuted in 2021 (plus one comedy special). This criteria is interesting since a lot of my all-time favorite shows don’t really figure themselves out until season 2 or later. So should be fun to revisit this in a few years.

My favorite TV series of 2020

We watched a lot of TV series this year. I absolutely loved watching the final seasons of The Good Place and Schitt’s Creek. Top Chef All-Stars L.A. was a joy to watch. And we loved catching up on Better Call Saul, Money Heist, Community, and Lucifer.

This list though is my favorite TV series or mini series that debuted this year.

Best of Project Runway: All Stars 1 and 2

On my down time I’ve been catching up on the past few seasons of Project Runway. I loved the first two seasons of All Stars. It’s cool to see how the designers have changed (or not changed) and fun to see more from old favorites. Love Mondo of course; I’m so glad he won. I wish Andrae could have made it further. Although he isn’t quite as fun without Santino. Here are some of my favorite looks from these two seasons!
