My Streaming TV 2022

Top 10 streaming shows 2022

  1. Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (Paramount+)
  2. Yellowstone (Paramount+)
  3. Hacks (Amazon Prime)
  4. Slow Horses (Apple+)
  5. Station Eleven (Starz)
  6. The Sandman (Netflix)
  7. The Bear (Disney+)
  8. Reacher (Amazon Prime)
  9. Welcome to Wrexham (Disney+)
  10. Stranger Things 4 (Netflix)


Apple+ remains quality over quantity for the most part and is prone to release some pretty niche stuff it pretends is mainstream. That said I loved Slow Horses – Gary Oldman gave a spectacular performance – and everybody else loved Severance. For All Mankind remains a wonderful show and while The After Party was inconsistent (almost by design) when it was good it was great and WeCrashed was just funny AF.

  5. WeCrashed


Netflix has had a dreadful year to date. There are a couple of shows landed in the final weeks of the year that should help but I can’t remember a year since I signed up when there were such wide swathes of time without anything interesting landing. The fact that I really didn’t like some of the big releases this year obviously contributed but it felt like a fallow year.

  1. The Sandman
  2. Stranger Things 4
  3. Umbrella Academy 3
  4. jeen-yuhs
  5. Top Boy 2
  6. Ozark 4
  7. Inventing Anna
  8. Untold
  9. The Gray Man
  10. Hustle

Amazon Prime

Amazon Prime was its usual mix of the occasional moment of quality amongst a sea of dross but it did drop some decent shows across Prime and Freevee (terrible, terrible name). Bringing Hacks to the UK was a blessing and the adaptation of Reacher was spot-on. I wish they’d have given Paper Girls another season though and Station Eleven was actually Starz (now Lionsgate) but I watch it via Amazon 🙂

  1. Hacks
  2. Station Eleven*
  3. Reacher
  4. The Boys 3
  5. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel 4
  6. Paper Girls
  7. Bosch: Legacy
  8. A League of Their Own
  9. Mom
  10. Sprung


Disney+ has been far and away the streamer that I waste the most hours with over the last year. It has a reliable pipeline of original or exclusive shows that are inconsistent but rarely bad and an ever growing back catalogue of stuff that I can binge as televisual wallpaper. 

  1. The Bear
  2. Welcome to Wrexham
  3. She-Hulk
  4. Andor
  5. Only Murders in the Building
  6. Abbot Elementary
  7. Pam and Tommy
  8. Orville
  9. Prey
  10. Obi-Wan Kenobi


Paramount+ has been a big contender for me since it landed half way through the year (finally!) as it has my two current favourite shows and a small amount of second tier programs I really enjoy. The fact they have all of Trek plus Taylor Sheridan locked down means this will likely continue.

  1. Star Trek: Strange New Worlds
  2. Yellowstone
  3. The Offer
  4. Mayor of Kingstown
  5. 1883
  6. Halo
  7. American Rust
  8. Minx
  9. Star Trek: Discovery
  10. Behind the Music
