My Favorite New Shows of 2014

Is it just me, or has this year been somewhat paltry in terms of awesome new TV shows? I was racking my brain trying to think of what new shows I have enjoyed, and came up with a whopping two. Two! Now that's just sad. To be fair, I didn't even try watching most of the new series this year, but it didn't seem like very many of them have been making waves aside from the ones I mention at the bottom here that I wanted to watch, but haven't gotten around to.

But let's get to these two shows that I felt were worthy enough to make the cut this year...

The Flash - favorite new TV show of 2014 by
The Flash started his journey over on Arrow, which was a much smarter attempt to launch a new series than Supernatural's sad backdoor pilot. Anyway! Yes. The Flash started on Arrow, in a way, but this series is not nearly as dark as its predecessor. Obviously there are still dark moments, but it is also laced with some humor and lightness that Arrow definitely does not have. Now I have to admit, I am a few episodes behind on the show, but I fully intend to catch up and keep watching, so it's definitely on my keeper list.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver - favorite new TV show of 2014 by
I feel a little weird including this, as it's not really your typical show-show. But I enjoy that it's only one night a week rather than every night, and he always seems to be pretty spot on in his observations on what is going on in world news. To be honest, I don't watch the regular news very often, so it's always good to have a bit of a catch up segment for those things I may have missed.

Now for the shows that I would like to see, but haven't had a chance to quite yet: Outlander. True Detective. Peaky Blinders. Transparent. I've also been hearing about How To Get Away with Murder a lot, but for some reason that one doesn't call to me quite like the others.

Are there any others I have missed that you think I should check out?
