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…

There is, quite simply, no show on network television that takes the risks that PERSON OF INTEREST does.
It's hard for POI to top last year in terms of shocks (poor Carter), but Carter's loss permeates the series in a way that I haven't seen on network show in a very long time. So many shows make changes just to go back to the status quo in an episode or two (or to make things business as usual after that same amount of time), but in the world of PERSON OF INTEREST, when a move is made, the show evolves along with it. Heck, despite that, I still figured the characters wouldn't last long in their undercover personas after the season finale this year -- but nope, we're at the halfway mark of season 4, and while it may end up being a moot point with the two machines at war, Reese and Finch are still undercover. (Shaw's cover was only recently blown, whereas Root has gotten to change her cover when the Machine deemed fit.)
With a constantly shifting series, the stakes feel real. Combined with wickedly smart writing and a great ensemble, it's arguably the best show on network television right now.
