Top 14 New Shows of 2014: #5

My annual TV Awards, the AFT Television Awards, are given out during the summer. But this year, during both the spring and the fall, produced many impressive new television series. As 2014 closes out and 2015 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

#5: Transparent

Amazon burst onto the television scene in a big way with the first of four shows that will make up its second-year class. Its extremely clever title is just the tipping point of its creativity, and its story is absolutely enthralling. Jeffrey Tambor delivers a mesmerizing performance as a father who starts publicly embracing the conflicted sexuality he has felt his whole life, and there is enormous support from the cast, particularly Amy Landecker, Jay Duplass, and Gaby Hoffman as his/her adult children.
