It’s here!! The last day of 2015 and what a ride it’s been. We finally returned to a galaxy far, far away. We went back to the future, but for real this time. Fitzsimmons finally kissed! Barry Allen changed our world a few times over. We’ve laughed, shipped, cried, and shipped harder. TeamTSD came together to discuss some of 2015’s milestones and disappointments. Check it out and then hit the comment section below with your own favorite characters, episodes, and disappointments of 2015.
FAVORITE TV DRAMA OF 2015
Brad: The Man in the High Castle
Nicole: This is hard to answer. So many favorites. Arrow rocked in 2015, The Flash kicked off with some serious force, and The Walking Dead is consistently good.
Liz: This is tied for two. Making a Murderer because I binge-watched it and HOLY SHIT! Also, Marvel’s Jessica Jones.
Brittney: Grey’s Anatomy
Cecile: The Affair. This may seem like a weird choice, but it’s such a fantastic, solid, amazingly acted show that will make you think long after you’ve watched the episode.
Lindi: Jessica Jones and Outlander all the way.
Cort: The Leftovers, Fargo, Ray Donovan, and Mr. Robot
FAVORITE TV COMEDY OF 2015
Brad: Ant Man … it totally counts.
Nicole: The Big Bang Theory
Liz: Does Supernatural count as a comedy? Kidding, but really … the whole cast is hilarious. I would have to say Parks and Recreation. It has StarLord in it, so …
Brittney: Didn’t have one this year.
Cecile: Inside Amy Schumer. Amy’s a star. Otherwise, Brooklyn Nine Nine is great!
Lindi: The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Master of None. Netflix slayed 2015.
Cort: The Duff, The Mindy Project, Jane the Virgin and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT OF 2015
Brad: The Returned
Meg: Wicked City. Ew …
Nicole: The Bastard Executioner. I was hugely disappointed. I tried to watch the pilot three times and could never make it to the end.
Liz: I hate to say it, but The Vampire Diaries. The magic that was this epic show has slowly started to burn away. Not to say I haven’t been enjoying this season (because it’s had those magic moments!). It’s just that I’m finally coming to grips with the fact that it will never be as good as it once was.
Brittney: I would have to say The Vampire Diaries. The three-year flash-forward turned out to be the most frustrating thing I have ever seen.
Cecile: The 100. Great during season one. Then it imploded during season two and I never want to see an episode ever again. Haha!
Lindi: Sadly, The Vampire Diaries. I tried!
Cort: Oh, how I wanted Minority Report and Constantine to make it. Both shows really came together, but not before they lost their audience. Well, except this girl.
