It seems like every single year, new and exciting series are coming out left and right, whether from streaming services like Netflix or from cable networks. Some would even go as far to say that television is becoming a better story outlet than film. With television offering more opportunities to expand on a variety of stories and further detail or study characters, it’s hard to disagree that TV has become a place for writers to cut loose a bit more. And in 2016, the writers of several major series really went all-in to deliver worlds of fiction teeming with political ideas, societal observations, and wild bouts of humor, both dark and otherwise.

For the TV Talk crew, it was one of the best years for TV on record. Each member of the crew has handed in their picks for favorite shows in the categories of Drama and Comedy, along with a few honorable mentions; sometimes there’s too much good TV. As hard as it may have been for them to choose, here are their final lists:
