Another year, another pair of TV goals. With 2018 underway and several series starting back up, it’s time for Noel and Kate to refresh their TV resolutions. How did we do with our 2017 resolutions to watch more anime and streaming series, and what impact, if any, has that made on the way we interact with TV? Noel and Kate discuss this and more in our special segment this episode, then unveil our resolutions for the new year. Before that, however, we have a full week of TV to break down. First up are the week’s comedy and reality offerings, including the Golden Globes, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, black-ish, Top Chef: Colorado, and The Amazing Race. Then we move over to the week’s drama and genre installments, including the premiere of The Chi, the midseason premiere of Star Trek: Discovery, the finale of Marvel’s Runaways, and new episodes of The X-Files and Steven Universe. How did Seth Meyers fare at the Golden Globes? Should the inclusion of contestants who are in recovery affect how Top Chef and other competition shows shape their challenges? Just how awesome is Lars’ new cape, and *why*, Star Trek: Discovery, *why*?!? All of this and more in this week’s episode of The Televerse.
