Marisa’s Top 14 Shows of 2014

December 24, 2014 by  

It was another great year for television, and to celebrate that, I made my list of the top shows in 2014.

As per usual, my annual disclaimer: I literally can’t watch every show, and so some shows that probably should be here (like TRANSPARENT) didn’t make the cut because I couldn’t catch up in time. (But on the bright side, I caught up on every show I name-checked last year as not being caught up on.)

So, these are my top shows of the year…

12. The Good Wife

Picture 4 of 15

It's hard to talk about THE GOOD WIFE's 2014 run without talking about Will's death, and, admittedly, that arc delivered the most powerful moments of the year for the show. (Though, 2013's "Hitting the Fan" was actually my personal favorite season 5 episode.) I caught up on the series a few months post-Will's death, having been completely spoiled by Twitter in the instants after it happened, and there is a part of me that wish I had the experience of watching "Dramatics, Your Honor" as it aired. The cast knocked every aspect of the grief out of the park as they struggled with the aftermath of losing someone who had been so important to them all.
This season, things have changed, though in a more minor way: Alicia's initial reluctance and eventual decision to run for state's attorney energized the show in a different way, while Cary's arrest and subsequent trial has taken over the show at various points. The show has a different feel now than it did a year ago, and while its mileage may vary for each individual viewer, for me, that's not necessarily a bad thing.
