Holy crap was there a lot of television this year. While we've already covered our best and worst shows of the year, there were many specific moments in these series, as well as memorable highlights from shows that didn't make it into our Top 10 list, that we'd be remiss to not highlight - or remind you of how awful they were. Steel yourselves, here comes our best and worst TV moments of 2017.

Carl Rodd, the owner of the Fat Trout Trailer Park in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, has a sign on his door. It reads: Do not wake before 9am under any circumstances. When two FBI agents defy those instructions, he's understandably dazed and angry. In a movie full of surreal terror, it's a perfect moment precisely because it's so mundane.
Twin Peaks: The Return may have concluded its run, but that doesn't mean we've been able to get it out of our heads. The entire series was really one surprise after another, but there were some obvious standout moments, which included the introductions of new (and old) characters, sudden shocks, and weird reveals.
When Twin Peaks aired its original finale in June 1991, its cliffhanger frustrated fans, who were left wondering "How's Annie?" for decades. Yesterday, Twin Peaks: The Return delivered its own open-ended final chapter -- but this time around, it felt completely true to what David Lynch has been plotting all along.
There have been eight episodes of Twin Peaks: The Return so far. With the show on holiday hiatus until July 9, now seems like the perfect time to reflect on the amazing, baffling, terrifying things we've seen so far, seemingly beamed directly from David Lynch's astonishingly highly-caffeinated brain.
We've only seen four of the 18 hours of David Lynch and Mark Frost's Twin Peaks: The Return, but we already have a lot of questions. A lot. Since half the fun of Twin Peaks is never fully understanding what's going on at any given moment, we decided to round up everything that's bedevilling us the most -- realising, of course, that we may never know exactly WTF is going on.
