The Top 10 Television Shows of 2017
by Damon Martin – NerdCoreMovement – December 26, 2017
Number 10 – Riverdale
Number 9 – Preacher
Number 8 – Ozark
Number 7 – Game of Thrones
Number 6 – Stranger Things
Number 5 – Better Call Saul
Number 4 – Twin Peaks
Number 3 – Mr. Robot
Number 2 – The Leftovers
And number one goes to Billions!
Watching a sparring match between a U.S. District Attorney and a wealthy hedge fund manager probably doesn’t sound all that exciting until you witness how Billions has unfolded over the past two seasons. The first season was riveting but the second season was absolutely mind blowing.
U.S. attorney Chuck Rhoades will do anything and everything in his power to bring down hedge fund billionaire Bobby Axelrod but after taking it on the chin at the conclusion of the first season, he’s forced to regroup and refocus his efforts. Simultaneously, there’s an investigation launched to look into Rhoades to make sure he’s been following the letter of the law as well as enforcing it. As for Axelrod, he’s trying to solidify Axe Capitol after taking a few hits but thankfully he runs into an ambitious intern who ends up being his secret weapon. Obviously, Chuck and Axe eventually come face-to-face before the season is over and you won’t find a better clash on television without turning on the latest UFC fights.
Billions is arguably the most well written show on all of television right now with stand out performances from all of the lead actors and actresses including Paul Giamatti, Damian Lewis, Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman and Toby Leonard. By the end of the season, you’ll be in awe of how these characters are willing to sacrifice everything to get over on each other — it’s like all the twists and turns of The Sopranos but without all the bloodshed.
Where to Watch: Showtime
Highlight: Episode 10 ‘With or Without You’ — While the bulk of this series takes place in offices and boardrooms, this episode takes Axe out of his comfort zone as he’s desperate to save his marriage while Chuck finds himself staring at an even more powerful role as he looks to transition from the U.S. Attorney’s office to a new home in politics.

Naughty or Nice? Which Showbiz Stars Have Earned Their Places on Santa’s Naughty and Nice Lists?
by Dan Cain – The Sun – December 25, 2017
It’s been a year that’s seen both the best and the worst in the land of celebrity – so who is in Santa’s good books and who can expect a lump of coal this Christmas?
We’ll start with the good Samaritans. While Hollywood has been hit with plenty of scandal this year, some big names have proven that there’s still lots of good out there, too.
The likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Kim Kardashian, Bruno Mars and Sandra Bullock have all donated huge amounts of money to various charity relief efforts following disasters such as the Flynt water crisis, Hurricane Harvey and the Texas floods.
They may have bank accounts full of loot, but there’s no doubting that these A-listers are deserving of a treat or two this festive period.
Our own British talent has also done its bit to help worthy causes. Singing superstar Adele dropped in unannounced to say a big thank you to the Grenfell firefighters after their heroics in the tower block tragedy.
Other musicians and stars such as Stormzy, Marcus Mumford and Damian Lewis also gave up their time to raise money for the victims through the Game For Grenfell football match and charity single A Bridge Over Troubled Water.
