Our Favorite TV Shows & Movies We Watched in 2022

To start this year, I shared my favorite moments in photos from last year. Then last weekend, I shared the 20 songs I had on repeat last year. This weekend, I’m sharing our favorite TV shows and movies that my wife Kim and I watched last year.

My favorite TV shows watched this year

  • Peacemaker, Season 1 (HBO Mas)
  • Reservation Dogs, Season 2 (Hulu)
  • Only Murder in The Building, Season 2 (Hulu)
  • Somebody Somewhere, Season 1 (HBO Max)
  • Archer, Season 13 (Hulu)

Kim’s favorite TV shows watched this year

  • Ted Lasso, Season 2 (Apple TV+)
  • Reservation Dogs, Season 2 (Hulu)
  • Somebody Somewhere, Season 1 (HBO Max)
  • White Lotus, Seasons 1 and 2 (HBO Max)
  • The Bear, Season 1 (Hulu)

My favorite movies watched this year

  • Everything Everywhere All at Once
  • Drive My Car
  • Top Gun: Maverick
  • The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent
  • Elvis
  • The Batman

Kim’s favorite movies watched this year

  • Top Gun: Maverick
  • The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent
  • 100 Foot Journey

Obviously, the ones we think are must-sees are the overlaps: Top Gun: Maverick, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, Reservation Dogs, and Somebody Somewhere. The others we probably would agree on as must-sees are Ted Lasso (both seasons) and Drive My Car. Kim also enjoyed the miniseries Chernobyl and Succession, both on HBO Max and I have been enjoying microdoses of Doom Patrol. The latter is just so weird but still intriguing.

Next weekend, I’ll be sharing my favorite reads from last year, and then the following week I’m thinking about adding the books, TV shows, movies and music I’m looking forward to reading, watching, and listening to this year.

So how about you? What were your favorite TV shows and/or movies watched in 2022?

The 20 Songs in 2022 I Had On Repeat

Last week I shared my favorite moments of 2022 in photos; this week, I’m sharing the 20 songs in 2022 I had on repeat, and in the next few weeks, I’ll share my favorite movies, TV series, and, of course, books, as ostensibly, I started as a book blogger. The reasons I’m behind are myriad, but my wife, I, and our families are all okay (now/briefly, my mother had a gallbladder removed this past week, but is home today). For now, here is a playlist of 20 songs last year I couldn’t get enough of:

What were some of the songs or albums that you had on repeat last year? They don’t have to be from last year either.

My Favorite Moments of 2022 in Photos

This is not what I intended to do with a year-end wrap-up and not posting it on January 1 of the new year, but here we are. Maybe later in the month, I’ll give you my “normal” best of books, movies and TV, and music posts or post after

  • my left wrist and forearm have healed, or are continuing to heal, from a sprain from falling on the ice in our driveway in mid- to late December.
  • adjusting to blood pressure medication I started taking today
  • changing from full-time to part-time towards the end of the month at the library where I work. It is for a variety of reasons too complex to explain here and now, but we’re okay overall and thank you in advance for your thoughts and prayers, if you have any to spare as we start 2023.

But for now, without too much further ado, here are My Favorite Moments of 2022 in Photos:

So, a brief update…

…for those of you still “following” me, since I have a “snow day” off work.

I’m still here…


Well, this could be under the next heading too, since I listened to this book on audiobook, but I’ll place it here. The book is/was Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story, written and read by Bono, the lead singer of the band U2. I listened to it over the first two weeks of this month, and for me, a U2 fan from way back, the only way to experience the book, complete with reimaginings of songs from the band’s catalog.

Listening to…


  • Lots and lots of Robot Chicken
  • Lots and lots of YouTube clips, including this one: https://youtu.be/QLWkl5YpiD0
  • The 2022 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, including this surreal moment (Dolly Parton and Rob Halford of Judas Priest singing together): https://youtu.be/jNkGeWVAtp8
  • Silly movies: The Wedding Singer, Can’t Hardly Wait, Galaxy Quest, among the most recent selections.


…not much, thanks to weather and work, which I’m off today, as I mentioned at the start of this post, because of the weather.
