Justin Carreiro’s Top 10 TV Shows of 2015
If there was ever a show you needed to binge-watch on Netflix right now (LIKE RIGHT NOW!), it would be Marvel’s Jessica Jones. The first season had it all: great dialogue, interesting characters, a terrifying villain and a plot you could easily follow. Jessica Jones is hands-down one of the best shows of the year!
2. Empire (Season 1)
Wait, there’s a show about the music business that isn’t cheesy or cliché? Sign me up! The first season is a joy to watch and introduces the world to the star that is Cookie Lyons. Her one-liners are enough of a reason to get hooked on the first season.
3. How To Get Away With Murder (Season 1 & 2A)
Fast-paced, quick-witted and highly dramatic, How To Get Away With Murder is a guilty pleasure soap opera for those who love a good Shonda Rhimes show.
4. Scandal (Season 5A)
After a slow fourth season, the fifth season of Scandal is picking up the pace to once again be a must-watch show. If you’re missing out on Olivia Pope’s latest cases, this would be the season to get back in.
5. UnReal (Season 1)
Reality television has a dark side, and UnReal is a guilty pleasure that turns all of the behind-the-scenes drama of making a TV show on its head into a scripted (and thrilling) series. Brilliant writing, an amazing cast of characters and actors and many twists that will make someone want to start watching reality TV again.
6. Survivor: Cambodia (Season 31)
Thirty-one seasons?! Survivor has come a long way, and it may seem that it does follow the same format. However, with the twist of returning players coming back for their second chance story, these castaways will do anything to win the game. Great moves, likeable players and shocking blindsides that will make your jaw-drop.
7. Orphan Black (Season 3)
Creeping into the third season, the story of the clones is coming together with many new introductions (and losses). Tatiana Maslany delivers in another terrific season that heightens the drama and the conspiracy!
8. Scream Queens (Season 1)
One half the creepy factor of American Horror Story and the other of the campy feeling of Glee, Scream Queens is Ryan Murphy’s true hidden gem. It’s a parody of sorority horror movies set to the extreme. Many of the characters (who you will never root for) are hilarious to watch and feature many amazing one-liners.
9. Gotham (Season 2A)
The villains are rising in Gotham City and their adventures are pure entertainment. Gotham has experienced a change in their writing, plot and editing style. And it’s making a difference! The villains are a draw to return to the show and the first half of the second season stands out as the best so far.
10. Revenge (Season 4B)
A soap opera story must always come to an end, and Emily Thorne’s final chapter is one to watch.
