Vulture just released its top-ten movies, TV shows, and albums of 2017. Associate Editor Hunter Harris joins us to break down the most surprising choices on the lists. Critical darling, "The Florida Project," earned top marks in the movie category. But, it was inclusion of the box-office flop, "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets," that raised some eyebrows. Harris explains how a movie with a 49% Rotten Tomatoes rating can be considered among the year's best.
On the TV side, Showtime's "Twin Peaks" revival came in at number one. Harris talks about what the miniseries needed to accomplish to prove skeptics wrong. Harris also tells us why Vulture selected the recently-cancelled NBC comedy, "The Carmichael Show," as its tenth-best show of the year. Then, we look at HBO's post-Game of Thrones future. The epic series airs its final season next year.
As for music, Kendrick Lamar's "DAMN." is Vulture's best album of 2017. Harris says the rapper is unquestionably hip-hop's reigning king, with seven Grammy nominations. She also explains why Lorde's latest album made the list, while Taylor Swift's "Reputation" was left off.
