Phil’s 5 Best TV Shows of 2015

so 2015 quite simple smashed it out the park.  Whilst film faltered, TV just kept getting better and better. So here is the run down of my 5 (well 6) top shows of 2015…

TV Show(s) of The Year: Narcos & Daredevil 
In Brief: I just could split these two top notch Netflix shows.  Daredevil gave us what is probably the best version of a Marvel TV show we could have hoped for along with by far the best Marvel villain in Wilson Fisk whilst Narcos gave us a crime Tv show with edge, bite and style.  It’s no accident that Netflix have multiple mentions here… they are winning TV hands down.

2. Game Of Thrones (Spoilers)
In Brief:  Bloody hell. This get’s second place just for THAT episode let alone THAT ending.  Okay so it lost it’s way on some of the sub plots but overall this show just gets bigger & bolder whilst smashing the boundaries of what to expect on TV.

3. Better Call Saul
In Brief: Who knew? A prequel to Breaking Bad which not only did suck but ended up being one of THE TV highlights of 2015.  Now as long as it can continue to carve it’s own path in 2016 we should be in line for something quite special.

4. Ash Vs Evil Dead
In Brief: It’s the show that we never thought we’d get became the show that we never thought could deliver which cam ether show that not only delivered but delivered BIG.  Okay so most won’t care but man this is every bit the Evil Dead TV show we wanted.  Gore, Swearing, Ash…. yup.

5. Hannibal
In Brief: Hannibal ended on a bloody high, one of the most out there TV shows I’ve ever seen.  From the performance to the production, Hannibal was high art does as TV.  It did things it’s own way and boy did it never compromise.

Bubbling under:
Justified
(Just misses out on a top 5 spot but what a season), The Walking Dead (strong season), Fear The Walking Dead (excellent debut), Doctor Who (Best season yet), Sons Of Anarchy (finished on a high), Flash (built on a great first year), Gotham (Oh my god, the improvement from season 1 to 2 is amazing), House Of Cards (weakest season so far but still excellent)
