    Just as the title says, what were the movies and TV shows that got your butt planted on the couch with your face inches away from the screen?

    Some of my favorite shows were:
    Regular Show
    Adventure Time
    Thundercats (2011)
    Over the garden wall
    Steven Universe
    Mighty Magiswords
    O.K., K.O.! Let's be Heroes
    Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012)
    The Legend of Korra
    iZombie
    Marlon


    The Avengers series were awesome. I pretty much enjoyed most of the Marvel superhero movies. Logan had me crying manly tears.

    When it comes to Planet of the Apes, my dad watched the originals as a young man but his opinion is Rise, Dawn and War are way better.

    Jurassic World was a great return. The T-Rex appearing to battle the I-Rex had my jaw dropping. T-REX says I'M BACK, B!TCHES!

    Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island: that's freakin' entertainment! have not seen KotM yet but I am excited to see Godzilla vs. Kong next year.

    Man. Coco had me crying, Dia de los muertos is always sad since 2005 when my cousin passed away, another cousin four years later and the murder of my uncle a few years ago.

    I don't like Seth McFarland's animated TV shows but Ted, Ted 2 and A million ways to die in the West were hilarious.

    Without a doubt, Thanos’ snap in 2018 solidified the MCU as the defining pop culture franchise of the decade, for me and a whole lot of other people.

    Other than that, my favorite new 2010s shows were Walking Dead and Steven Universe. Other big movies for me were the Sequel Trilogy, Coco, Jurassic World, and Django Unchained.

    Big video games were the Kingdom Hearts series, Assassin’s Creed III-IV, the High Moon Cybertron games, and Treyarch Zombies.

    My favorite movie of the decade (and of all time) is Get Out. I think it Get Out is one of two films from this decade that represents the tension between different groups of people in this decade. I will recommend this film to quite literally anyone who asks.

    My favorite show of the decade is BoJack Horseman. It is masterfully made and doesn't hold back from forcing the titular character to change himself for the better.

    Good idea for a thread. I’ll have to think about it a bit, but for now I’ll say the modern Planet of the Apes trilogy is easily one of the highlights of the decade.

    Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011)
    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)
    War for the Planet of the Apes (2017)

    The films I enjoyed the most during this decade were (in no particular order) John Wick, John Wick 2, The Last Jedi, Looper, Ex Machina, The Invitation, and Pacific Rim.

    Archer has probably been my show of the decade.

    It's hard to believe we're at the end of this decade. 2010 doesn't feel that long ago. And yet somehow it does at the same time.

    The first Guardians of the Galaxy is probably my favorite movie of this decade. Off the top of my head, I can't think of any other movies that are as entertaining on pretty much every level. Almost perfect blend of comedy, characters, adventure, music, and emotion. It has something for everyone, it was an instant classic (something that I feel is fairly rare these days), and it's basically the only MCU property that appeals to a large amount of non-Marvel/superhero fans. I didn't see this movie until it came out on DVD, (I probably even knew the spoilers to an extent) and I was still floored by it. And I'm still floored by this movie's wider cultural impact. I've never seen a movie propel such unknown characters to household names practically overnight. Groot and Rocket became popular with people who don't even like sci-fi/superhero stuff. You can see a Baby Groot at grandma's house. People still hum Hooked on a Feeling five years later. People still quote the dialog. I don't think I've seen a movie become such a crazy sensation before or since. Sure, stuff like Endgame is popular and widespread, but almost every aspect of GOTG had an insane viral impact, and it's still hanging around half-a-decade later. Being popular is great, but I find unexpected hits like this a lot more interesting. I hate to sound like I'm overstating the movie, but I truly believe GOTG will be remembered as the movie of this decade in the years and decades to come.

    Bumblebee is up there too, sometimes a bit more than GOTG for me on a personal level. I feel like GOTG has more going for it on an 'objective level' (it's definitely more culturally significant), but Bumblebee is possibly more important for me personally. I love Transformers, and have waited the majority of my life (quite literally) to see a well-done retro-style Transformers movie. To finally see that on-screen was a blast, and definitely one of my top theater-going experiences. Considering my other top experiences were The Force Awakens and maybe The Hobbit movies, Bumblebee is the only one that's actually stayed solid for me.

    I also love (more or less in order) Toy Story 3, How to Train Your Dragon, Despicable Me, Tin Tin, Pacific Rim, The Lego Movie, The Martian, Doctor Strange, and Rogue One. And there's a lot more than that, but those are some standouts for me, and they're ones I can return to often. I enjoyed a good amount of Pixar's, Disney's, and Marvel's movies throughout the 2010s in general.

    As far as TV shows go...The Mandalorian? I watch next to no (modern) television, so I'm not sure I can even give a list. I've seen some of the Transformers stuff, but I haven't really loved any of those, frankly.

    I think the easiest way for me to do this would just be for me to list my 3 favorite movies of each year of the decade.

    2010: How To Train Your Dragon, Tron: Legacy, Inception
    2011: Fast Five, Captain America: The First Avenger, X-Men: First Class
    2012: The Avengers, Django Unchained, Argo
    2013: Wolf of Wall Street, Fast and Furious 6, Hunger Games: Catching Fire
    2014: Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
    2015: The Martian, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Sicario
    2016: The Nice Guys, Captain America: Civil War, Hacksaw Ridge
    2017: Logan, Baby Driver, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
    2018: Infinity War, Mission Impossible: Fallout, Into the Spiderverse
    2019: Ford v. Ferrari, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, Avengers: Endgame

    As for TV, this one is a little tougher. At this point, I kinda consider the 2010’s to be the decade of shows that started off great and then just declined from there. Season 1 of Mr. Robot and Bloodline are some of the finest television I’ve ever seen, but the following seasons just didn’t live up to the greatness they started out with. We all know how Game of Thrones ended. Walking Dead used to be my favorite show and the one show that brought my family together, but it’s starting to lose my interest. The CW DC shows and the Marvel Netflix stuff started off great, but I eventually lost interest. I’m probably going to go with Stranger Things and Vikings as my favorites because those shows have just been so consistent for me. Even when the writing disappoints in Stranger Things, I still enjoy the characters enough to have fun with the show. Vikings really knows how to stay fresh, and always grabs my attention. Justified was excellent almost all the way through as well and highly underrated. Peaky Blinders is amazing too, and I’m really looking forward to next season. I’m loving The Mandalorian so far, but we’re only 4 episodes in. Young Justice and Tron: Uprising would probably be my favorite animated shows of the decade.

    There was no Year 0, so decades are 1-10, not 0-9 in my book. If you think otherwise, nothing wrong with that, but that's how it is for me.

    Off the top of my head and in no particular order for TV - Halt and Catch Fire, Bojack, Westworld, Twin Peaks S3, The Americans, True Detective, the first half of GOT, Narcos, Better Call Saul. Breaking Bad and Mad Men if shows that started in the 00s count.

    Would have to sit down and look at a list for movies, although Blade Runner 2049 is easily my favourite of the decade.
