Top 10 TV Shows of 2015

Top 10 TV Shows of 2015

2015 provided us with a dense volume of television programs.This list may’ve very well missed worthy entries; nonetheless, it includes the best out of what was seen.

Top 10 (Loosely ordered)

Master of None
There’s no show that will make us want to call our parents and grandparents more. Call them. See it. Call them again.

Jessica Jones
Arguably the best Marvel Studios TV series. See our Series Review starting with Episode 1.

Silicon Valley
Mike Judge delivers yet another classic worthy of his Beavis and Butthead and King of the Hill resume.

Rick and Morty
Season 2 had a lot to live up to; it met the bar and concludes with an incredibly powerful cliffhanger.

Better Call Saul
A spinoff with mixed expectations that found its way into many of our laboring hearts. The ideal show to watch before heading into the middle of the week.

The Knick
A stirring period show exploring the social dynamics around the world of 1900’s medicine. Featuring a season finale that leaves many of us to wonder whether it was actually a series finale.

Come for the accidental Minnesota humor, stay for the, often, in a class of its own story-telling.

Mad Men *Second Half
A solid series finale with revelations that range from harsh and definitive to ongoing and fittingly inconclusive.

Show Me a Hero
A cold hard look at Yonkers' Mayor Nick Wasicsko’s involvement with public housing policy and how it would define his legacy.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Arguably the most daring and unexpected premiere of the year. It may not be for everyone, but it’s an absolute treasure for those who it’s for.

Honorable mentions

Mr. Robot
Impressive debut, though the season feels too incomplete to be among the favorites. Looking forward to Season 2 completing the picture for its inclusion in our 2016 list.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
The most quality bit for bit faux news show around.

House of Cards
Fun season, even if they double dipped into the Underwood marriage drama.

Broad City
A blunt comedy show that’s worth checking out.

Key and Peele
While not the best season, it still added impeccably poignant bits to an incredible series run.

Revision: December 24, 2015
It is with great regret that this author admits to having unintentionally neglected to include The Americans on the list. It, without a doubt, deserves to be in the Top 10.
