The appeal and quality of Television Shows have been increased significantly since the last decade or so. Now, it is not at all confined to a few countries and has become a global phenomenon like the movies. We are in a period when many A-lister film actors and directors have started their TV ventures and have been very successful in this medium too. Even this year, directors like The Wzchowskis (Sense8), M Night Shyamalan (Wayward Pines) have started their debut projects. Worth mentioning that many of the top directors, viz., David Fincher (House of Cards, 2013), Steven Soderberg (The Knick, 2014-present), etc have already tested their hands at TV shows and shortly, Martin Scorsese will be joining them too with Vinyl in 2016. Even actors of all kind, from Clive Owen, Kevin Spacey to Kirten Dunst have been showcasing their talents on Television recently and also, in turn, earning loads of praises for their performances.
2015 has been a great year for both movies and TV, but if one were to judge solely on the basis of quality, especially in the writing and acting department, TV has the edge. The year has been chock full of newcomers as well as old-timers coming back for subsequent seasons. Drama, crime, comedy, superheroes — 2015 had it all. Today we have listed down the top TV shows of 2015. We have ranked these shows according to their current season in this year, and not for their overall stance or for earlier season/s.
10. Master of None
Much in the vein of Louis CK’s “Louie”, Aziz Ansari’s “Master of None” has quickly found its way into the hearts of the audience. Set primarily in New York, the humor in “Master of None” is realistic, the characters are adorable and relatable. In Aziz Ansari’s Dev, one may find the everyday struggles of a man. Noel Wells may very well be the star of this show, who plays Rachel, Dev’s romantic interest. The characters are memorable and not contrived, as is the case with many wannabe comedy shows like this one. “Master of None” manages to carry an easy charm throughout its first season, owing much to Ansari’s witty presence.
