Top 20 New Shows of 2020: #7

My annual TV Awards, the AFT Television Awards, are given out during the summer. It’s always nice to check in midway through the television season to reflect back on all the calendar year introduced us to. As 2020 closes out and 2021 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

#7: Pure
I’m sure many would have expected a show about someone who can’t stop thinking about sex to be gratuitous, but it dealt with its subject matter in a magnificently compelling way. Charly Clive and the rest of the ensemble complemented a truly interesting and stunningly-done look at anxiety in a comedic but still serious context. I’m still just sad there won’t be a season two. Watch season one now on HBO Max.

Best Episode: Pilot
