The 30 most popular posts of 2015

2015 is over, so it’s time once again to take a look back at the most popular articles of the past year. Note: Posts aren’t ranked by total views (which would be unfairly biased towards articles that have been up the longest), but rather by how many views each one received in the first 15 days of being posted. Also, no videos made the top 30 this year. And now, let’s get to it!

Also in 2015: Wil Wheaton read one of my articles (okay, so he linked to the TrekCore version and not the Agony Booth, but still!):

And that was our 2015. If you missed it last year, check out the 30 most popular posts of 2014!

    I got one?

      Congrats! Though I never commented, I really enjoyed your Interstellar analysis.

        Thank you. :)

      You really are a Boother now!

        Well, last year I had two, so…

        Honestly, I was more surprised that I got any at all. I post about once a month, but it’s mostly reviews (which generally get less hits) when I should be doing agonies. New Years Resolution.

          Must’ve been a while since I last read last year’s list…because it was from last year. Well, you’re quite cemented in here anyway so good job making the list this year. m/

          Looking back at these articles though i wonder if my own nerd cred really runs that deep, because i realized how little I knew of the deeper universes (DC, Marvel, Stargate). My personal favorite of this year’s winners is Webtrek, if simply for the WTF factor and because I was alive and around then to maybe have seen it. Never did, but as an 80s kid the probability was pretty high.

  • Michael Bagamery

    It seems unjustly self-congratulatory to cite the most popular posts of any given year.

  • Joel Schlosberg

    I’m late to seeing this, but it’s really gratifying to know that my very first article made the top 10!

    Wil Wheaton is currently doing an AMA on Reddit, so I had to ask how he never heard about the Webster crossover from Michael Dorn. He answered.
