It was another great, crowded year for TV. If you were to ask us to choose the 20 episodes everyone should have watched, here are our picks. Use your holiday vacation wisely, friends.
As was true of my Best Dramas list, there’s only one show here from network television, and it’s not because I think sitcoms need premium-cable freedom to use naughty words to get laughs. The list is alphabetical, because I really couldn’t say that the kind of laughs you get from John Oliver are “better” than those of, say, Broad City. Better Things (FX): Pamela Adlon, working with Louis C.K., has created a new kind of single-mom-with-kids sitcom — moodier and more fraught, but never losing sight of its mission to keep the laughs coming.
As the cousin and close pal of Donald Glover’s Earn, Henry so fully inhabits the role of the rapping, usually high Paper Boi, he thoroughly deconstructs the usual pop culture stereotypes of what a hip-hop artist might be like. Hard when he has to be, Alfred — Paper Boi’s real name — is also a sensitive soul and a rigorous thinker. This was made most clear in the Oct. 11 episode “B.A.N.,” Glover’s showcase for Paper Boi as a guest on a Charlie Rose-style talk show, but Henry’s shrewd skills compelled you to watch him in even his smallest scenes or when this Boi seemed to be nodding off.

Season Five of Veep has been a roller coaster of anger, insult and emotion. Selina Meyer’s last ditch effort to secure a spot in the White House — even if it would mean she would have to eat crow and return to the vice presidency — often resembled a slapstick version of Hitler in the bunker at the end of the war. Naturally, these high-stake hilarities netted the series, crew and actors twelve nominations for the 2016 Primetime Emmy Awards, including a fourth Supporting Actor nod for Tony Hale’s performance as Gary Walsh, the bag man and floor mat to Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s President Meyer.
If you ask Will Arnett, he’ll say, “I don’t f—ing know! I know that everybody is game to do it. “Oh wow,” exclaimed Hale, “I’m by far the guy who has no clue what’s going on. Like, David Cross, Will Arnett, they tend to have some inside information, and hear stuff and all that kind of stuff.
