Best Television Episodes of 2015
If I think of more later, I'll update!
- •Leslie and Ron, One Last Ride - Parks and RecreationThe shockingly stellar farewell season to my favourite television comedy graced us with 12 amazing journeys. These two delved into the characters' personalities and lives in a way that the show had never done before, and proved that endings, while bitter, can still be greatly entertaining.
- •Mornings - Master of NoneA startlingly real depiction of living together over a select group of morning routines.
- •Face the Raven - Doctor WhoThe semi-goodbye to one of the reboot's longer-staying companions was a great murder-mystery style episode with a fitting conclusion and emotional repercussions.
- •Kimmy Goes to Court!/Kimmy Makes Waffles! - Unbreakable Kimmy SchmidtA hilarious finale to a fun-filled Netflix original, John Hamm provides a charming villain to counter Kimmy's naïveté and spunk as one of the brightest protagonists in a long time.
- •Shadows in the Glass - DaredevilVincent D'Onofrio's Kingpin is one of the year's best villains, and this episode gifts the viewer with a brutal depiction of this incarnation's backstory. Tragic and traumatizing, it truly fits the powerhouse that is Wilson Fisk. (And that's only like half of the episode!)
- •The Hauntening - Bob's BurgersA great Halloween episode that plays on classic horror tropes and the unique charm of the Belcher family, with legitimate scares and suspense even though you know nothing truly bad will happen to these animated animations. The ending is real and charming, and is honestly one of the best episodes of my favourite animated comedy.
