LAMBCAST #406: BEST TV OF 2017

by Jay Cluitt · December 29, 2017 · Featured, LAMBcast, Podcasts, TV · No Comments

The year is almost over, so it’s time to take a look back at the past twelve months and determine exactly what we enjoyed and despised. We have to do this, it is decreed by the powers that be, there’s no way around it, but we’re sticking it to the man this week by not doing movies – NO! – we’re talking TV.

Jay was joined by Robert, Nikhat, Tony and Lackey to rank their top TV of 2017. Thanks also to Rebecca, Rob and DJ for submitting voicemail messages stating their personal favourites too.

Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week and a game of Last Lamb Standing.
