the best of 2008: tv and movies

of course, there is great subjectivity in saying “these were the best movies and tv shows of 2008”. with that understanding…

the tv shows that regularly captured my imagination this year were (there are a few others i usually watch, but these are my favorites):
the office
30 rock
the amazing race
lost (yes, i still like it, and can’t wait for it to return in a few weeks!)
heroes

and the movies that stood out to me where, in no particular order (some of these may have been 2007 releases, but i saw them in 2008):
the visitor
marley & me
under the same moon
burn after reading
the dark knight
WALL-E
august rush (my review)
the darjeeling limited
no country for old men
U2 3D (my review)
