Top 16 New Shows of 2016: #7

My annual TV Awards, the AFT Television Awards, are given out during the summer. It’s always nice to reflect midway through the television season to reflect back on all the calendar year introduced us to. As 2016 closes out and 2017 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

#7: Fleabag

It’s a wonder to so immediately recognize talent as displayed by the lead performer on a show within minutes during its series premiere. Phoebe-Waller Bridge is phenomenal as a self-absorbed woman paralyzed by the devastation of loss, and this very British comedy has a serious dramatic backbone that can really sting. I so hope that this won’t be all we’ll see of this fantastic show.
