Oh! What's occurin'? One of my favorite British exports, this show is a family-friendly charmer with an occasional bite. Lush, indeed.

Certainly the most original comedy of the year, and one of the best overall. Maria Bamford has found the perfect place for her unique timbre of comedy. This show is bananas, but in the best way.

SUNDAY FUNDAY! Much has been made of the second season's dramatic turn, which never felt heavy handed or phony. Sadly, this is too small a show on too small a network to get the acclaim it deserves, but I give major props to all involved. You're the best.

This show has lost steam and, frankly, my interest in recent years. But no other U.S. reality show has delivered an actual music superstar. Kelly Clarkson FTW. y'all.

Ellen Page is smart, eloquent, and the perfect ambassador to some of the world's most interesting LGBT communities. She handles emotional moments with compassion and tense segments with assuredness. In short, she's a baddass. And this show is worthy of a Vice-hater's time.

I'm not gonna say it's all about Gina, but it is mostly about Gina.

Sometimes "Jane" seems lightweight, but it's really super smart, playing with new storytelling elements all the time and putting together a really deep bench of acting talent. Gina Rodriguez FTW, obviously.

I really like this show, but Spanish-speakers know the (Brazilian) lead actor's accent is wack. Beyond that, it's a truly crazy tale that prompted me to take many Wikipedia breaks while binge-watching.

I know. Really, I know. But rest assured: the Kardashian clan's involvement is very limited, and the show doesn't shy away from big issues and awkward moments for its trail-blazing star.

This is investment TV. It takes some work to figure out what's going on, but it's a fun sort of confusion, and the return on that investment is nothing short of the season's most creative new drama.
