Starting a 'My Bests of 2015' series.
  1. Walking Dead | 'Thank You' (Ep 3)
    F2854329 f12d 4f03 8057 c91842486673
    Nothing ever goes right during the zombie apocalypse, I never thought it could go this wrong, though.
  2. American Crime | (Ep 11)
    Dd50e638 d2e4 440a b08f 2fa5069385e1
    Every minute of this show is emotionally taxing, but watching the case and everybody's family issues come to a head feels personal. Ridley's a genius.
  3. Banana | (Ep 1.6)
    Be5f1821 c298 4dbe 84f1 70c502052a04
    This episode is so perfect I want to put it in a little capsule and keep it in my memory forever. The jitters and anxieties of dating are captured and packaged so sweetly.
  4. Narcos | 'La Gran Mentira' (Ep 9)
    63d4c12d ff3d 471d ab56 f7281c1618ff
    You know what, fuck one episode. The whole season is amazing. I especially loved this episode because the stakes rose higher than I ever thought possible and the director continued to make unpredictable choices. Unpredictable, yet the show parallels history/facts pretty closely. Mind blown.
  5. Bring It | Battle Royale (Ep 15)
    1301fc6e 7ca6 46b4 ae93 cb54d9df7d56
    I watch a lot of good television but this little reality show about a group of dancers in Jackson, Mississippi is more entertaining than all of them. Especially when they're battling rivals.
  6. Walking Dead | 'Start To Finish' (Ep 8)
    30c000d0 be22 46d4 824b b27321e32180
    On my toes. The entire time.
  7. Hand of God | 'A Flower That Bees Prefer' (Ep 9)
    58fdcce7 9f07 493f 8239 fa860a1b0eb5
    The show is riveting from episode 1, but I've never seen hallucination and wavering religious faith ever look this spooky in a show outside of the supernatural/horror genre.
  8. Show Me A Hero | (Ep 1.5)
    97244dfe 0550 4c63 b6b9 bcf2bfee5690
    Most realistic portrayal of systemic housing segregation I've ever seen on screen. And there's nothing more heartbreaking than the scene in the townhall in which they hold a raffle to select low income residents who will be integrated into better housing. Excellent acting.
  9. BoJack Horseman | 'The Shot' (Ep 9)
    5bc2f769 c8f0 434b 97b5 251893cf3250
    The main character of the show is a talking horse, but the show paints a startlingly human portrait of him. It was nice to see Princess Caroline on that level as well.
  10. Orange Is The New Black | 'Trust No Bitch' (Ep 13)
    F25d8b9f 6aef 4936 b1ca cbb1945a1a26
    I was expecting all of the bullshit to culminate in the finale, however, I wasn't expecting the beautiful and transcendent moment all of the women have in the water. Audiences needed that.
  11. The Affair | (Ep 203)
    115c84c6 550d 49eb a8d3 2414279f3b29
    IMO, this show has the best writing on television. Period. This episode masterfully reveals what Noah has done and shows everything that's wrong in the relationship through simple scenarios.
  12. Game Of Thrones | 'The Dance Of Dragons' (Ep 9)
    B69c6803 f0c4 4a4e a359 b97541bb3de2
    Ummm the fighting pit scene, though. Wow. Fuck me up.
  13. Survivor's Remorse | 'A Time To Punch' (Ep 2)
    De15c9ce 5c0d 43cb 93f6 b51282b693e8
    One of the smartest comedies on TV. They take old situations and subvert them in unimaginable ways.
  14. Rectify | 'Girl Jesus' (Ep 4)
    1f08a6fc 709c 49d2 903d 68ecffe9d8c6
    Tawney and Teddy's dynamic is one of the most interesting on the show. And they really take each other there in this episode.
