Halt and Catch Up: The Best TV of June 2018

We've hit the halfway mark of 2018, so it's time to sit down and take stock of the damn good year in TV we've had thus far. Clint and Allison are joined by regular contributors Dominick Suzanne-Mayer and Kate Kulzick this week to break down some of the best TV shows and performances of the past month - with a special shoutout to Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals' incredible work on FX's POSE. (We also do our best to process that humdinger of a Drag Race finale.)

If that's not enough for you, we also re-cap our top ten (technically, eleven) TV shows of the year so far! What do you think of our picks? Is there anything we missed? Let us know!

You can read our official list here, but if you want to hear us rhapsodize further (and repeatedly, gleefully butcher the One Day at a Time theme), we've got you covered.
