"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

TV Riches.Here are just a few highlights...

Year in review lists/recaps each day.TV is too vast a topic for one list but here's a list of personal favorites from Spencer Coile

2017 was a messy year.While we may be entrenched in cultural,political,and social turmoil,one area that keeps getting better is television.From the return of David Lynch'sTwin Peaksand NBC'sWill & Grace(proving that some revivals do work),to the rise of Hulu series,through  the continuation of prestige dramas from HBO,the golden age of TV continues.Because there's such a vast array of shows out there we all have our blindspots so please know that this is but a personal list and you should definitely share yours.  To make room for all of the excellent work put out this year,here are favorite individual and duo performances but let's kick things off with a tribute to the ladies via Ensembles...

Stages of Grief: "Difficult People"

By Spencer Coile

After three hilarious seasons,Hulu has cancelledDifficult People.

The show starred Julie Klausner (also its creator) and Billy Eichner as best friends who will stop at nothing to become famous.We covered the show'sthird season-- the non-stop jokes,the banter,and the beating heart underneath all of the cynicism.Needless to say,this news has been shocking for many of us here and will continue to sting months after...

Difficult People S3 E9-10: LA,Ayahuasca,and Aimee Mann

ChrisandSpencerwrap up their chat on this season ofDifficult People!

In "Sweet Tea"we finally get the much teased Big Lebowski sequence and some major shakeups...

S: "Sweet Tea"is the episode of some big changes!We have Julie giving up acting to start a career in crafting,Billy being sick of New York,and Arthur quitting his job at PBS… although Arthur decides to return back to PBS.

C: This season's been kind of fitful in trying to create long-game plot points,but this felt like it was actually developing something that could have lasting implications.

S: Julie referring to Etsy as a cult is one of the most relatable lines fromDifficult PeopleI have ever heard.But then she turns around and uses weed baggies as her own new product,the "dream baggie."I'll take 20.

Difficult People S3 E7-8: Sitcoms,Sleepovers,& "Yes And"

In Episode Seven,"Fuzz Buddies",Julie lies her way into a Nick Jr.writer's room,Billy gets a decades late response to fanmail from Monkee Micky Dolenz,and Marilyn finally celebrates her Bat Mitzvah.

CHRIS: So the theme of this episode was delayed adolescence.Billy got a childhood fan letter to Micky Dolenz returned and ends up getting roped into helping him with a one-person show.

SPENCER: What does it say about me that I don't know who this person is?

C: I can't imagine you're the only viewer thinking that.Even byDifficult Peoplestandards,this guest appearance is specific and completely bizarrely random.But fitting for the theme to have an old school teen idol.

S: Teen idol?I'm listening (while also googling Micky Dolenz)...

Difficult People S3 E5-6: Golden Toilets,Jane Krakowski,and Gay Get Out

ChrisandSpencerare back for moreDifficult People!In "Cindarestylox,"Marilyn asks Julie to freeze her eggs,Julie indulges in some Botox (to fit on a golden toilet seat,naturally),and Billy teaches an acting class for adolescents.

CHRIS:The Ramble has been transformed into an outdoor yoga studio?!Is nothing sacred anymore!

SPENCER:And yet that Leather Queen who climbs out of the tree still wages the war against the women!Love that whole bit where people are telling our pal Julie to smile.Now that is real.

C:So Billy starts teaching acting classes to help pay for his Madonna standup tickets.Strangely,Madonna as a standup comic was a joke that didn't work for me - watch any interview with her and she's an excellent shadestress!She'd make a decent insult comic.

S:Do you remember that one short clip where a fan brought her flowers and she mocked him for it?I mean… the shade is insurmountable,but it is equally hilarious...

Difficult People S3 E3-4: John Cho,Rabbits,and A Dybbuk

ChrisandSpencerare dishing this season ofDifficult People!

In "Code Change",Julie uses AA to fight her addiction to her mother,Arthur fails valiantly to satisfy Julie in bed,and Billy comes to the separate rescue of his brother and sister-in-law.

SPENCER: Why had I never thought of a church as a place to charge my phone,first of all?Let alone a Synagogue!

CHRIS: And there's free coffee.I feel like we spoke too soon last time about the show's guest actors only being asked to just play wacky because Rosie O'Donnell was maybe the show's most straight-faced character ever.

S: I know,right?It was almost jarring — but definitely in a good way.Her reference to Billy being gay… she's totally in on the joke.
