Best Shows of the 2014-15 Season - Part One

We've got an awful lot of turnover between this year and last. Some of that is due to shows ending (goodbye, Breaking Bad and Treme), but overall it's kind of a disappointment considering how strong 2013-14's freshman class was. Review hasn't aired its second season yet, so it gets excused, but Broad City, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Orange is the New Black all made the cut last year as well. And while each had plenty of good stuff to offer this year as well, their sophomore campaigns were all flawed enough (for various reasons) to mean they won't be making a return appearance this year. Likewise, The Good Wife's season six disintegration—maybe the single biggest disappointment of the year for me—ensures that it too is nowhere to be found. Indeed, only two shows from the previous season's top ten earned spots this year.
