You want a fun show about the zombie apocalypse with depth, great characters, and inventive zombie scenarios? Then Z Nation beats 'you know who.'
I'm going to give this one this year to the Chicago franchise. I have many picks in this category (hahaha), but I was surprised when I started watching how many people around me said they hadn't seen an episode of Fire, or Med, or P.D. yet. Come on, people. They may not be the coolest shows, but they're good.
Pitch has blown me away from beginning to end, but the low ratings continue to baffle me.It's from Dan Fogelman, the creator responsible for the biggest hit of the season This Is Us. That alone should get it a little bit of love, because clearly this man knows what he's doing. Yet, people continue to sleep on this well written series. Pitch has some of the best writing I've seen in a bit, and it definitely has one of the best cast on televison. Not to mention one of the most diverse cast (and crew) there is to offer. Two biracial leads (little known fact, Zack Morris is Asian, guys!) and women are every bit as prevalent behind the scenes as they are in front of them. Kylie Bunbury is sent from the heavens. Mark-Paul Gosselaar has outdone himself as Mike Lawson. Not to mention we have the iconic Dan Lauria, Mark Consuelos, Ali Larter, Mo McCrae, and Megan Holder. Even their guest stars are incredible. Pitch has a loyal, devout, and determined fanbase (affectionately called "Pitches") that interacts with the cast and crew regularly and had the show trending on Twitter every week, and yet the ratings just aren't there. It's such a refreshing sports/family/friendship dramedy with a lot of heart. It's a crying shame, a travesty that it doesn't get more love.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is one of the funniest shows on TV, Rachel Bloom is one of the funniest women on the planet, critics have a love affair with the series, and for whatever reason, the show hasn't hooked an audience! The world needs to wise up to the laughs that get delivered from West Covina every week.
The Good Place
The Good Place is so – well, good! The show has a unique concept – a comedic display of heaven and hell. It has an amazing ensemble cast led by Kristen Bell and Ted Danson. The writing is intelligent and witty. It's shocking to me that more people aren't in love with The Good Place, especially since it came from the same mind behind Parks and Recreation, Mike Schur.
