Last year, I didn't do any "Best Of" lists, I think in large part because a lot of the critics I read and follow were all complaining about doing them. So I announced I wouldn't be doing any "Best Of" lists because I "didn't feel like it."
Someone immediately called me out on this. "That's ridiculous," they said. "You LOVE lists."
It's true. I really do.
So, without further ado, here's the first of a number of lists of my favorite things from this past year.
