If you’ve been hiding under a rock this year... The biggest, most ambitious, most talked-about shows are where to start.
Game Of Thrones had a gory season that answered as many questions as it asked new ones. Breaking Bad wrapped up everything they’ve been cooking up with a series finale that gave fans a high.
If you are a young white woman with #FirstWorldProblems...
Viewers vented with Girls as they dealt with job cuts, writer’s block and break-ups. Because, you know, that’s life. And one woman struggled through minimum security women’s prison, with tampon-burgers, screwdriver theft and incarceration with her lesbian ex-lover in Orange Is the New Black. Because that’s life too.
If your idea of a party is a political party...
House of Cards slowly and deliciously showed us how to play everyone in Washington and still hold all the aces. But on Veep, it all fell apart hilariously and the slightly neurotic US Vice President may just run for the big job next season.
Everyone was talking about Scandal, and its many plot twists as it covered White House crisis-management. Homeland started out with promise but tripped all over itself.
If you can get out of a totalled Aston Martin and get away with it...
You’ll want this year’s episodes of Mad Men as they try to sell Heinz ketchup, and baked beans without staining their own reputations.
If you’re certain that gay people are not the ones to fear...
Look to the real monsters on TV. Vampires walked in daylight and upset the immortal faeries in True Blood. A botched cloning experiment resulted in multiples of the same ailing person on Orphan Black.
If you were more interested in the Kat-Ranbir romance... or any romance
Mindy is still falling for incredibly hot men on The Mindy Project, as the new season finally found its comic dynamic.
