Funbag Time for your weekly edition of the Deadspin Funbag. Got something on your mind? [Email the Funbag](mailto:[email protected]).

Looking back at what feels like a lot longer than 12 months—did you even remember that there was an Olympics this year?—it’s easy to forget what aired in April when you’re knee-deep in October’s bounty. Plus, plenty of shows that aired on niche cable channels earlier in the year are now available to stream on widely available platforms. With so much good television these days, not everything can make our Best Of TV list (though a few of these recommendations do). And with such an embarrassment of riches, there’s plenty to choose from, whether you’re looking for something to share with family over the holidays or looking for something to curl up with by yourself.
