FAVORITE TV MOMENTS OF 2015 (PART II)
So many great scenes in television this year continued (and I still haven't even watched everything I wanted to yet).
- 1.The Massacre at Sioux Falls (Fargo)The backstabbing. The murders. The aliens. While running away from the action, an unfazed Peggy gives the best line of the season: "It's just a flying saucer, Ed, we gotta go!" Watch part of here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vQieJvjOX3s
- 2.Richard Wayne Gary Trial (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt)Watching Jon Hamm wow the jury by saying the most ridiculous things is pure joy. Watch: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NeJPsmmX2jQ
- 3.Bill Hader in "Sandy Passages" (Documentary Now!)Bill Hader stole the spotlight in every episode of this great new series, but I'll never forget his introduction as 'Little Vivvy'. Watch: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=i0kqMUPC7Gs
- 4."Do you remember Moonflower?" (The Knick)Nurse Elkins delivers such an amazingly badass monologue about her sins to overtly-religious bastard father. His stroke left him unable to really move or talk so all he can do is stare wide-eyed at his daughter as she injects him with BLANK. The scene Lucy Elkins deserved.
- 5.Girl You Don't Need Make Up (Inside Amy Schumer)This song has been stuck in my head for months. Watch: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fyeTJVU4wVo
- 6.Keep Summer Safe (Rick and Morty)Rick's smart ship has the task of protecting Summer by killing literally anyone that approaches the car in horrendous ways. Amazing. Watch: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Bz1r53WSJCw
- 7.Chase Sequence (Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp)There were a lot of great moments from "Wet Hot", but one that makes laugh hard for the sheer lunacy of it is the chase sequence of Ken Marino and Christopher Melloni. The skipping. The "running". It's ridiculous in all the best ways. Watch: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye-_T96kK-Q
- 8.Funeral (Show Me a Hero)I wouldn't say this is a "favorite" but I found the end of this HBO miniseries very emotional. Not one scene stuck out apart from the whole series because you need to witness the entire frustrating journey of Mayor Wasicsko in order for this to pack a punch.
- 9.The Proposal (Catastrophe)On paper, everything about this series seems unromantic and yet it completely works in every way. Even when Rob proposes, despite the fact he doesn't even know if Sharon (the basically stranger carrying his unborn child) wants to marry him, he still asks anyway. And it's a very funny scene.
