Top 10 New TV Shows
These are my Top 10 shows that debuted in 2014/2015. If you haven’t caught them, you really should, and if you need any further proof about just how bad availability is in Australia, 6 of these 10 are NOT currently available on ANY of our subscription services. No wonder we’re a pirate nation.
Shows where the first season is still running are not included, nor are shows where the second season has started airing – so shows like Tyrant, True Detective and The Last Ship didn’t qualify, though they are good.
