    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.

    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 Hate Suzie too if enough have seen it)

    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.

    Why were you expecting it to make all of the lists? It wasn’t a critics-driven show.

    FYC: Station Eleven in all categories

    It’s one of the most acclaimed (and widely seen) shows of the year and critics were raving about it.

    "The Good Fight", "The Other Two" and "Station Eleven" in all categories, Sarah Lancashire ("Julia"), William Jackson Harper ("Love Life") and Luke Kirby ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel")

    It’s one of the most acclaimed (and widely seen) shows of the year and critics were raving about it.

    It was actually under-reviewed. Not many critics picked it up when it dropped. For example, it only has 11 reviews on Metacritic in comparison to something like Mrs America’s 42 reviews. Then it completely blanked at TCA. These were clear indicators that it probably wouldn’t do well on year end lists. It was a word of mouth hit with Netflix audiences, but it was never something that critics really got behind.

    FYC: Station Eleven in all categories
