Top 15 New Shows of 2015: #6

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.

#6: Mr. Robot

I’m always at a loss for words when it comes to this show, since it’s so unlike anything that I’ve seen before. Rami Malek is electric as the center of a show about a hacker with more than a slight issue with experiencing reality as it happens, and this show managed to drop bombshell after bombshell each episode, retooling its own sense of what was actually going on. Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, and Christian Slater are the standouts of a sleek and reliable ensemble. It’s still hard to process it all, and I’m very eager to see where this wildly creative show heads as it continues into season two and beyond.
