Stranger Things

Probably harder to select than the Best Movie of 2017 is the Best Serial of 2017. Because let's face it -- not only do we watch a lot of shows on our devices, but there are so many new outlets creating original content. It's not like the old days of the early 21st century when your favorite shows were generated by a cable network (and don't even get me started on my antediluvian childhood woes of only having three broadcast networks to pick from, plus a UHF channel you could pick up if the weather was clear).

As a result, there were a ton of contenders vying for the spot of Best Serial of 2017. But in the end, there could be only one -- and it was a close shave! GAME OF THRONES put in a strong second place, taking 20 percent of the votes.

But Westeros fell to Eggos, as the plucky kids of the Netflix Original series, STRANGER THINGS, took the top spot with 23 percent of all votes cast.

Congratulations to series creators Matt and Ross Duffer, and the entire cast and crew whose work compels us to watch.
