Top 15 New Shows of 2015: #7

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.

#7: Humans

This was one of the best surprises of the season, a British import to AMC that had an eyeroll-inducing tagline and seemed like it wouldn’t offer much. That was far from the case, as this look at artificial intelligence and one way that it might threaten society was examined by following a few humans and a few robots designed as butlers who were anything but. This show was extremely engaging and enthralling throughout, improving steadily in the second half of its season, and season two is sure to be very interesting as it tackles its subject matter through a new framework.
