Person of Interest (Season 4)

Nathan Dugas – “Every season has been stellar and season 4 was no exception.”

The Flash

Casey Walsh – “Picking best TV Show was the easiest decision I have had to make all year. The Flash is everything I have ever wanted and could have ever asked for in a superhero TV show. Even though the writing can get a little cheese-ball, I have no problem overlooking it, especially when they throw villains like King “F’ing” Shark and Gorilla Grodd at us. The Flash is just one amazing moment after another, and for a life-long fan of the character like me, it’s a dream come true.”

Enrique Rea – “The Flash embodies everything a comic book adaptation should. Heroes that fight for justice, truly evil villains, characters straight from the source and plenty of them, but most of all, a core group of characters you actually care about.”

Mac Thompson – “One of the only shows I will watch every week without fail and exactly what I think a comic book show should be.”

 

Gotham-Wallpaper

Gotham

Cory Anderson“Young Bruce Wayne still seems to get into the thick of all the action even though he doesn’t even have the reasoning power that he will once he is fully trained. This isn’t like The Flash or Arrow where it is super heroes first and story second. This is a cop drama set in the notoriously gritty and dark world of Gotham City. The back stabbing and ulterior motives are enough that I can get the wife to watch the show; which is a win! Anytime we can enjoy my comic book world together is a good thing. This show is so addictive that once the mid-season finale for Season 2 happened, she made me promise we wouldn’t miss an episode when it returns.”

Game of Thrones (Season 5)

Natalie Atkins – “Game of Thones!!!!!! I can’t get enough of this show and wish they would do more episodes a season!”

Daredevil

Wayne Hughes – “Tough call, but just for me Daredevil just edges out Arrow. The way that it’s put together was amazing and the fight choreography immense. But with Arrow, Flash and Supergirl in the mix, not to mention Jessica Jones, it was a hard decision.”

Lance John ­– “Best show of 2015.”

Chris Pirri – “The man without fear the way he should have been presented to us. Not that horrible version brought to us by 20th Century Fox in 2003. The action is top notch and Charlie Cox plays Matt Murdock perfectly.“

Erin Murphy – “Since Daredevil and Jessica Jones are a continuation of the same universe, I’m counting them as one show with two seasons in a year. Both were incredibly good and I’m super excited for March 2016 for the new Daredevil season.”

Jessica Jones

Jeff Gordon – “I have a hard time binge watching any show, but Jessica Jones was the one show this year who’s season I watched in one weekend. Few comic book shows/movies are able to strike the balance of compelling heroes and villains. It’s usually one or the other, but Jessica Jones gives us both and a great story to add to it. Thank you Marvel.”

Will Elizondo – “Tie between Daredevil and Jessica Jones. In Marvel’s first go around with their Netflix exclusive shows, they came out of the gate firing on all 8 cylinders. They managed to make 2 amazing shows that dealt with the heroes that are more on the human side and still make it exciting, action packed, and just as epic as their big screen franchises. Not bound by ratings, these shows took us to an unchained and unrestrained place that we were yet to see but really wanted. So far the casting of both of their shows have been amazingly cast and expertly written. Both of the shows perfectly straddle the line between realism and comic book fantasy.”

One Punch Man

Anthony Franklin – “I’m not much of one to watch much television, so when a show catches my interest I get pretty hooked. This year my favorite show came pretty far out of left field since I don’t watch too much anime, but One Punch Man really appealed to me. Its self-referential humor towards the anime genre is what really caught my attention. It’s a show that not only pokes fun at itself by being over-the-top but also goes on to acknowledges those somewhat humorous things we see in the whole genre.”

 

2102

Ash vs Evil Dead

Peter Morrow – “Corny, cheesy, ridiculous, and quite possibly some of the funniest TV I have seen all year. Ashley Williams is back, he’s old, he’s a pervert, and he is kicking major deadite ass.”

 

outlander-2015-03-a

Outlander

Adam Waugaman – “Television has definitely stepped up its game over the last few years. With new internet media like Hulu and Netflix creating new series and content, cable and broadcast television have to find ways to compete. Thankfully channels like HBO, Showtime, AMC, and Starz are meeting that challenge. Starz brought us Outlander. A story of a woman who falls through time to Scotland in the 18th century. The production of the show is simply fantastic. The time spent on costume and scenery, both in post-World War 2 and 18th century Scotland, is very well done. Action, romance, adventure, and time travel. Pretty great combination.”

The Walking Dead

Agasicles Stamas – “It’s the best written, best scripted, and best run show on TV for my personal tastes. Period.”

 

MasterofNone

Master of None

Danny Benavides – “I’ve binge watched a lot of shows this year. A lot of good ones too so it’s hard to just pick one. There was Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Mr. Robot… but If I had to choose one, because I am a big fan of comedy, I think I would say Aziz Ansari’s Master of None. The show follows the life of a struggling actor in his 30s living in New York. It’s pretty clear Aziz took a few aspects and events from his real like when putting this show together. It’s hilarious while also covering a few relevant (and non-relevant) topics like dealing with stereotypes, family and “old people”. “

Sense 8

Sarah Payne-Mills – “Sense8 (from the Wachowskis) was incredible and totally binge-worthy. Having eight main characters can go wrong fast, but the show executes it flawlessly by unraveling each person’s personality little by little. The premise—with eight diverse strangers connected through a psychic link—immediately draws viewers in. I can’t wait till season two!”

Hannibal

Jon Reyes – “When Starz’s Spartacus closed out its final season, I thought to myself no other show can be anywhere near as unique and [insert any number of overly nerdy positive platitudes]. I was so wrong. Once Hannibal was announced a few years ago, I immediately watched the Hannibal film series for the first time ever. With it I was thankfully introduced to and blown away by the performance of Anthony Hopkins as the morally questionable doctor. So, I think, understandably I was a bit turned off and worried about Mads Mikkelsen as the titular cannibal, despite me having seen him here and there in other projects. Oh how he proved me to be wrong, again. As creepy and incredibly fantastic Hopkins is in the role, Mikkelsen is Dr. Hannibal Lecter. I have a new-found respect and appreciation for him as an actor. I don’t want to be here writing about Hannibal all-day, as much as I’d love to, but more than worth mentioning are two more parts of the show. (1) Hugh Dancy as Will Graham = wowee! (2) Bryan Fuller’s overall work. I’ll certainly miss the week-to-week anticipation for the next episode, but if you’re a fellow “fannibal” than you know we’re lucky it aired for three seasons, let alone one.”

Last Man On Earth (Seasons 1 & 2)

Everett Harn – “As much as I hate supporting FOX and anything they do, I love this show way too much to not want to tell everyone I know to watch it. Will Forte and Kristen Shaal put on the best acting they’ve ever done in this hilariously awkward post-apocalyptic series that has extremely fun characters and a plot that has twists and turns around every corner. What would you do if everyone suddenly died off and you were the last one remaining? Well Will Forte pretty much does exactly everything I would do and more. Love this series!”

Mr. Robot

Sarah Belmont – “A simple story about a man wanting to save the world, going up against those who rule the world. Elliot Alderson’s plight captures viewers as Sam Esmail brilliantly brings the first person narrative to the small screen. In addition Tyrell Wellick is a fascinating, three dimensional villain whom mirrors Elliot’s hero pathos. Episodes 6,7, and 8 form a surprising and intriguing story arc that elevates the show from good to transcendent. Between the writing and directing each episode contains a plethora of neo-noir nuances that only enhance Rami Malek, Christian Slater, and Martin Wallstrom performances. This is only the first chapter I cannot wait to watch the rest of the story unfold.
