Top 10 TV Programs of 2014-2015

We've come to the final post of Film Actually's coverage of the 2014-2015 TV season. By now you will have realized which programs were my favorites based on my Emmy ballots, so I won't reiterate anything I've already said. I hope you've enjoyed reading these articles and perhaps I've directed you towards your next favorite show in the process. If there's one thing I'd like to get across, it's that contemporary TV provides an abundance of riches for cinephiles. From comedy to drama and everything in between, there's no shortage of compelling programming. My own lineup numbered a total 37 shows (including movies, series, variety specials etc.) and every one of them had aspects of merit.

So without further ado, here are my Top 10 Programs of the 2014-2015 TV season:

  1. The Honorable Woman (SundanceTV)
  2. House of Cards (Netflix)
  3. The Good Wife (CBS)
  4. Orange is the New Black (Netflix)
  5. The Americans (FX)
  6. Homeland (Showtime)
  7. Better Call Saul (AMC)
  8. New Girl (Fox)
  9. Louis C.K.: Live at the Comedy Store (FX)
  10. Louie (FX)
Honorable Mention: Inside Amy Schumer (Best Variety Series), Bessie (Best TV Movie)
