Justin Carreiro’s Top 10 TV Shows of 2016
1. The Crown (Season 1)
This is an absolutely beautiful and stunning show. I’m not one to be passionate about historical dramas, but The Crown is easily one of the best of the year, especially everything from its acting to its locations. I NEED a second season of this show to come back.
2. Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X (Season 33)
After 16 years of watching Survivor, it’s hard not to expect certain moments or moves in a season. But this Millennials vs. Gen X season kept me on my toes and biting my nails down to the Final Tribal Council.
3. Stranger Things (Season 1)
I initially was unsure about Stranger Things in its first episode, but it hooked me right in after. I’m crossing my fingers the second season is equally as amazing.
4. Orphan Black (Season 4)
The fourth season is easily one of its best: the plot/backstory has been sorted out, the clones are on their game, and Tatiana Maslany was finally recognized with an Emmy!
5. Black Mirror (Season 3)
Each episode felt like its own mini movie. The only downside? I wish I could get more episodes from certain stories, like “Nosedive,” “Playtest” and “Hated in the Nation.”
6. American Horror Story: Roanoke (Season 6)
I love a story that’s very Meta and while the first half is alright, the second half makes up for it as one of the best in AHS overall.
7. Bojack Horseman (Season 3)
Emotionally deep plots, real development for the characters, and one of the saddest cartoon episodes I’ve ever seen – this was a great season.
8. How To Get Away With Murder (Season 3A)
After a bumpy second season, the drama picked right back up for the third season. The show cannot return fast enough.
9. Salem (Season 2 & 3A)
Salem is so overlooked, but it’s a guilty-pleasure supernatural drama that found its groove in the second year.
10. Supergirl (Season 1)
Supergirl has a great cast of characters and plot. I enjoyed the sisterly bond and every GIF-worthy one-liner that Cat Grant/Calista Flockhart bestowed upon the world.
