What makes a television show good? Does it simply have to be entertaining? Or should it be serious and educational? Or maybe it has to have a combination of both? Whatever it is, now that 2015 is over, it’s fair to say that it was one of the best years for television. The Golden Globes are this weekend, and some of the shows nominated for best series (in various subcategories) include: Game of Thrones, Mr. Robot, Narcos, Empire, Orange is the New Black, Fargo, Transparent, and Silicon Valley. Plus fans became obsessed with and binge-watched series like Master of None and Making a Murderer.
It’s going to be hard for 2016 to top 2015, but if it’s going to happen, the following shows are the ones to do it. Of course, expectations can often go unfulfilled, and just as often shows come out of nowhere to become hits. So this is merely a list of shows that have the potential to be good. You’ll have to check back at the end of the year to see which ones worked and which ones didn’t.
Until then, here’s the list of the 10 shows to look out for in 2016.
Honorable mentions do include comic book adaptations, including Legends of Tomorrow, Preacher and Luke Cage.
10 The X-Files
6 American Crime Story
5 Vice Principals
2 Angie Tribeca
