25 (5) best shows of 2020

These are 5 of the best 25 shows of 2020 according to TV Guide, in no particular Order:

Better Call Saul (AMC)

Kim Wexler began the series as the beacon of light toward which we foolishly hoped Saul would steer, but she is now going rogue as a woman crashing through the median of the traditional road to success and milking the system for her benefit. And with Rhea Seehorn's Emmy-worthy performance as Kim (for which Emmy voters stupidly didn't even nominate her), it's one of the most carefully constructed character arcs of all time, Walter White included.

The Boys (Amazon)

The Amazon series returned in 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic that has so far prevented any major superhero film from hitting theaters, and to be honest, the lack of superheroes at the box office just made us hungrier for the debauchery of The Boys. Season 2 upped the stakes in every way possible without compromising character development or a coherent story.

I May Destroy You (HBO)

In 12 stunning, sometimes unsettling episodes, the series follows what happens after hip young writer Arabella, played by Michaela Coel, realizes she'd been drugged and raped while out drinking in her home city of London. By the series' stunning end, viewers come to realize that the story in totality was about healing, but the journey there was an unorthodox one as it explored consent, rape, and the ugly parts of sex in a way that was as playful and humorous as it was raw and wrenching.

Insecure (HBO)

The most recent installment was all about emotional payoff, and it delivered in the most explosive way. The simmering tensions between Issa (Issa Rae) and Molly (Yvonne Orji) boiled over in a friend breakup heard around the world. The final gutting scene showed Issa and Molly sitting down to a tentative truce, but their relationship has changed so drastically that it feels almost like a total reset of the show.

What We Do in the Shadows (FX)

Season 2 revealed that Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, and the show's writing staff have gotten so comfortable in this extension of the film's world that they surpassed the movie completely. The show improved in its second season with the help of a possessed undead Haley Joel Osment, a Superb Owl party, the world's most terrifying chain email, and the introduction of the man, the myth, and the legend that is Jackie Daytona.
