I watch entirely too much TV. This is only sort of ranked, but 1-4 are exceptional.
  1. The Americans
    simply the best show on tv for 3 years running. great music, and better wigs.
  2. Transparent
    absolutely wonderful. the best depiction of a modern adult family since six feet under. the other best show on tv.
  3. Mr. Robot
    highly stylized, non-procedural hacker thriller on usa (seriously). mostly technically accurate too.
  4. You're the Worst
    @ayacash and kether donohue are fucking awesome.
  5. The Leftovers
    season 2 was extremely good, even if you didn't like season 1. damon lindelof always gets the benefit of the doubt from me.
  6. Broad City
    hilarious. the best stoner comedy in a long, long time.
  7. Rectify
    exceptionally and intentionally slow. watching week-to-week would be brutal. and probably better.
  8. Veep
    watching julia louis-dreyfus and tony hale improvise together is a ton of fun.
  9. Bob's Burgers
    highest joke-per-minute ratio on tv. it's the only show I can think of where every main character is my favorite.
  10. Rick and Morty
    who doesn't want dan harmon to make more stuff? it's a whip smart, light speed, dirty drunk animated back-to-the-futurama.
  11. Peaky Blinders
    absolutely brutal violence and extremely incomprehensible dialect. no, it's not the wire. also, great guest spot from tom hardy.
  12. Casual
    biggest surprise this year is a hulu original
  13. Fargo
    don't know why i like it but i do. kinda loved it, actually.
  14. The Affair
    the differentiated male and female perspective is a great conceit that only works because the writing, acting, and directing are all terrific.
