3 of The Best TV Shows of 2017

2017 was a great year for TV series. For the first time in many years, Game of Thrones was not nominated for any Emmy awards, meaning that other productions also had the chance to shine. And there were many great shows to choose from, too, in all areas, from comedies to action, suspense, science fiction, and drama series. And there were many shows that haven’t gotten any Emmy nominations this year, which also offer a unique and meaningful experience to their viewers. Not to mention that there are still shows that haven’t premiered yet. Waiting for some of those can be a real burden – instead of counting the days or hours to their premiere, why not kill time with some games, like the ones at the All Jackpots? After you claim a new player welcome bonus when you join All Jackpots you can access its vast collection of games that will help you kill time until your favorite show returns to the screen – or maybe it puts some cash in your pocket, too.

But without further ado, here is a (very subjective) list of the best TV shows of 2017 so far.

Drama: American Gods

Surprising as it may sound to those who have seen the show, American Gods only received Emmy nominations in the Visual Effects and Title Design categories, despite being one of the most imposing TV series of the year. Alas, the same has happened to Hannibal, the other amazing Bryan Fuller creation, and will probably happen to his upcoming science fiction series… but more on that below.

American Gods is a small-screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s novel with the same title, telling the story of the ex-convict Shadow Moon who sees his live turn upside-down when finding out that gods are not fiction at all – they are living, breathing creatures who walk among us, influence our lives, and clash between themselves. The series has a star-filled cast, with Ricky Whittle playing Shadow Moon, veteran actor Ian McShane playing Mr. Wednesday, Gillian Anderson cast as “Media”, and other well-known faces, like Omid Abtahi, Orlando Jones, and Peter Stormare also showing up in several episodes.

American Gods is a bold, outstanding series with amazing visuals and a captivating story that’s not for the faint of heart.

Sci-Fi: Star Trek: Discovery

Many Star Trek fans are probably waiting for the return of the iconic franchise to the small screen… and not. Creators Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman have imagined a different kind of Star Trek universe, visually relying more on J. J. Abrams’ rebooted franchise than the “traditional” one. And this won’t be the only major change to expect: the main character of the series, First Officer Michael Burnham, will be played by Sonequa Martin-Green, and her in-series parents will be Sarek and Amanda, which makes her Spock’s adoptive sister (yes, Michael can be a woman’s name in some cases).

There’s really no way to know what to expect from the new series – except for it being different from everything we’ve seen before.

Talk: Last Week Tonight With John Oliver

If you haven’t seen any of John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight” episodes, head over to YouTube and seek out its official channel. At this year’s Emmys, the show took home the Outstanding Variety Talk Series award, among others. John Oliver is an English comedian, writer, producer, political commentator, actor, and television host. He wears a lot of hats but he has a lot to show, too. He started out as a stand-up comedian, then became the Senior British Correspondent for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, which he guest-hosted in the summer of 2013. Critics suggested that he should get his own show – which he did when he began hosting Last Week Tonight on HBO in 2014. Since then, the show has won numerous awards and has received positive reviews from critics. Brave and bold as it is, the show has triggered a lot of media attention for taking on industries like tobacco, debt buying, and President Donald Trump.
