1. Master of None (Netflix)
    7c1c6796 019d 4dd6 a37d 2eb4bfc485ea
    A smart and romantic look at dating, race, and adulthood. Overflowing with empathy and understanding for all of its characters (seriously, even a subway masturbator gets a moment of compassion). Aziz and Noël Wells are incredible.
  2. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (The CW)
    Cdb43252 c7cb 4711 a233 c068d3c17e44
    Weird and wonderful musical (!!!) comedy about obsession, mental health, and West Covina. The songs are dark, clever pop satire.
  3. You're the Worst (FXX)
    8939cfa4 a0d4 4d51 a4fb 4c7c209ed25b
    Hilarious, mean, secretly sweet rom-com about two broken, sad people doing their best not to succumb to normalcy.
  4. The Leftovers (HBO)
    3ae1761e 1e93 49d5 bdbc 7d5f53a2c293
    Perfectly detailed drama about grief and how people cope with loss. Every episode works as a rich character study. A mystery show about the unexplainable.
  5. Nathan for You (Comedy Central)
    C104e0fc 2e75 44a4 868e 8c20217a7440
    Nathan Fielder's full-on bananas comedy experiment: part-reality show parody, part-elaborate prank, part-performance art.
