The five-part series that begins with this column isn’t exclusively comprised of the 25 best shows of the year. As always it is what I hope to be an interesting mix; one that challenges the overarching sameness of so many other year-end lists of this kind. Think of these collective columns as one list of the 25 shows I found the most engaging, or have the most to say about, or both. There are quite a few that would be on this list if the caliber of acting were the only criteria, but many of the best in that regard – including Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale and The Looming Tower, AMC’s Little Drummer Girland Better Call Saul and Netflix’s House of Cards and GLOW -- just didn’t fully come together for me.
