Tis the season for 12 calling birds, three French hens and stacks on stacks of listicles counting down the best of TV, movies, news and music.

Yeah, we know that penning a year-end rundown of our favorites isn't anything new; just about every publication from Redbook to Buzzfeed will undoubtedly dedicate a few words to what they think is the year's finest. The year-end wrap-up listicle has become a regular holiday tradition—one that you didn't necessarily ask for but you're glad exists, like finding Chapstick in your stocking or seeing your weird cousin for the first time in months.

It is important to reflect on your favorite albums, shows and whatever else floats your boat. But we believe these year-end recaps serve a bigger purpose. They shine a little light on the important and entertaining things you—the reader—may have missed out on. All year long, we at City Weekly love to inform people about local news, arts, music, movies, television and everything in between, and we know our readers enjoy discovering new bands or a new dish at a local restaurant.

And, really, that's the point of this issue.

But we also know that many readers of year-end lists consume them simply to see if a writer's opinions align with their own, and spout off in the comments section if they don't. But if this is what it takes to create a healthy conversation about the great things this state produces, so be it. Let's do this. —Colin Wolf
