    Lots of web content is eligible for Emmys, but most of it probably isn’t going to be noticed given how much of it is out there.

    I’m partial to a lot of Geek and Sundry programming, like “Co-Optitude.” I think Wil Wheaton’s “Tabletop” is worthy alongside anything that competes for Best Reality-Competition Series these days.

    SciShow” is probably one of my favorite informational series on TV or the web. Ditty “Sexplanations” and “Health Care Triage.” It helps that a lot of these shows are in bite-sized nuggets, much easier to fit into a hectic schedule. Sad when you have to work to fit in an hour-long episode of something, but so it goes with modern media. There’s. Just. So. Much. 🙂

    High Maintenance on Vimeo is incredible. (I believe HBO is picking it up for a 6 episode season). I’m obsessed.

    Hulu’s The Hotwives of (Orlando, Vegas) is incredible. If you are familiar with the Real Housewives/general Bravo programming – they hit the nail on the head with the absurdity that goes on.

    I would love Hulu’s Difficult People to get some attention next year. Bill Eichner and Julie Klausner are hilarious.

    Catastrophe on Amazon is hilarious, as is Scrotall Recall on Netflix. Both are english set shows (Recall I know was broadcast in england on TV before Netflix brought it here, not sure about Catastrophe). Both are so funny, so well acted and written. I’d recommend them even though I know the emmys are never gonna pay any attention to them.

    Edge of Normal from 2013.   Unfortunately the series has not done a second season.  Imagine season 1 of Heroes if all of the main characters were teenage girls and with a lgbtq slant.

    Based on what I think gets shown in the US online, British shows like Happy Valley, The Fall and Catastrophe would be my first shout.
