Game of Thrones
The Leftovers
Master of None
Fargo
Transparent
Inside Amy Schumer
True Detective
Orange is the New Black

Re: Post Your Top 10 TV Shows of 2015

I was holding off doing this to try to catch up with as much TV as I could. For instance, I just finished the Leftovers today. Also, I have not finished the Knick which was in my top ten last year, nor have I even started Rectify, which was number 3 two years ago. My list is in order as of this moment.

1) Fargo
2) Mad Men
3) The Jinx: the Life and Deaths of Robert Durst
4) The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
5) Halt and Catch Fire
6) Show Me a Hero
7) Silicon Valley
8} The Leftovers
9) Veep
10) The Flash

Honorable mention: Game of Thrones, Parks and Recreation, IZombie, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Mr Robot

Re: Post Your Top 10 TV Shows of 2015

Not sure I could make a top 10, so here are my favorites:

1. The Flash
2. Scorpion (that's right I'll be the first to post it. It's a ridiculous amount of fun)
3. Walking Dead
4. Game of Thrones (I'd put it higher but I'm two seasons behind)
5. Big Bang Theory
6. Modern Family
7. Supergirl
8. The Muppets

Nope couldn't make it to 10. That's all I record. I've got True Detective and Orphan Black unwatched on Blu though so I could round that out.

Good call on Show Me a Hero- I had completely forgotten about it- fantastic show. And once you watch Rectify, it will be in your top 10- this season was incredible.

Re: Post Your Top 10 TV Shows of 2015

Is this for episodes that aired in 2015 proper? While the shows wouldn't probably change on my list, their order might. I can't believe I am the only person to mention 12 Monkeys so far. The show never let me down once during its first season, which is something I can't say about any other show I watched in 2015.

1) 12 Monkeys
2) Salem
3) The Flash (How did this not make #1 on my list? Jay Garrick has been very lame so far and nothing like the comic book character)
4) Haven (Goodbye, Audrey Parker)
5) Mr Robot (surprise of the year)
The Americans
Penny Dreadful
Game of Thrones
Supergirl
The Simpsons (If you haven't become completely jaded, we've had several incredibly strong episodes over the past year that would have fit in with the show's golden age)

I am surely forgetting something. I am contractually bound by DC Comics to put Supergirl on this list.

Oscar Isaac has had an interesting year.

Season two of Rectify kind of wore me out and made me almost not want to know what happens next. I'm going to have to be in the right frame of mind to start season 3. It hasn't happened yet. Thankfully, it's such a niche show that it's easy to avoid spoilers.

I deleted the first episode off my DVR without watching it after I read the DVD talk thread on it.
