Top 15 New Shows of 2015: #1

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 a large number of impressive new television series. As 2015 closes out and 2016 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

#1: Narcos

I almost didn’t watch this pilot and I wasn’t much looking forward to the show because of the subtitles, but I am so glad I did since it was without question the best new show of 2015. The pilot was electric and fascinating, with Pablo Escobar firmly established as an incomparably efficient and powerful drug lord who truly believed in his country and his business. Each episode felt like a movie in the traditional HBO style, and I can’t even imagine how incredible and intense season two is going to be. This show is violent, but it’s a must-see for anyone with a serious interest in television.
