Top 15 New Shows of 2015: #12

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.

#12: 12 Monkeys

Turning the awesome 1995 film about a time traveler sent from the future to prevent the outbreak of a deadly virus was a terrific idea, and there’s so much to like about this show. Though it faltered a bit in the middle of the season, the amount of intrigue and incredible grasp of some mind-boggling time travel concepts makes it great, and the season finale put it firmly back on track. Aaron Stanford is perfect as time traveler Cole, and he’s surrounded by a superb ensemble with many appealing and mysterious players.
