    Last year there was a clear top 3: Succession, Fleabag, and Watchmen. I don’t think we’ll have such dominant this year, but I don’t think you’ll see many lists that I May Destroy You, Better Call Saul, and Better Things miss.

    Better Things at the top as it should.

    I agree with you but I can’t imagine a top 3 where I May Destroy You is not present. I’d be surprised.

    I know it’s jut one review but the Unorthodox snub has made me feel more confident in my prediction of Mrs. America over it in Series at the Globes.

    Also I started watching We Are Who We Are and I’m so glad it’s in this list!

    This year is so much weaker than last.

    I’m completely biased, but I believe (as it wasn’t even included in the honorable mentions) they literally forgot My Brilliant Friend, as they gave it the some of the highest grades when it aired. Oh well, too bad for them. Also, the fact that they put Better Things on top makes me indulgent.

    Not exactly a top 10 yet but the Boston Globe did their “highlights” of the year on television:

    – Gillian Anderson (Sex Education/The Crown)
    – The Queen’s Gambit
    – What We Do in the Shadows
    – Schitt’s Creek
    – The Good Place
    – P-Valley
    – Ted Lasso

    https://www.bostonglobe.com/2020/11/19/arts/what-this-tv-critic-is-thankful-2020/

    Interesting to see so many Ted Lasso mentions. It got average reviews from critics (I say this as someone who recently binged and loved the show).

    – Gillian Anderson (Sex Education/The Crown)

    The flavour and the range

    Last year there was a clear top 3: Succession, Fleabag, and Watchmen. I don’t think we’ll have such dominant this year, but I don’t think you’ll see many lists that I May Destroy You, Better Call Saul, and Better Things miss.

    Agree. Right now thinking the top five will be the aforementioned three with a combination of P-Valley, Pen15, Schitt’s Creek & The Queen’s Gambit rounding out the top 5.

    I saw a few us critics teasing it would be on their lists on Twitter.

    It’s interesting because I’m seeing the show pop up on Twitter when people in the US are asking for show suggestions that aren’t I May Destroy You.

    Haven’t watched I May Destroy You and P-Valley yet. But I love all the other shows in the Indiewire list. I’m glad that The Baby-sitters Club made the cut. And hell yes, Better Things is definitely the best show of 2020 by a mile.

    I’ll echo some others in  saying that it’s quite pleasing to see Better Things get this attention. May be finally solidifying itself as an under-sung critical darling.

    Again another list where Unorthodox is missing.

    At least we finally have a list where a comedy eligible for this Emmys season is included (Betty)!
