10 TV Shows You Need to Be Watching in 2015

From British gangster thrillers to lone-wolf-cop dramas, these are the series you should be catching up with ASAP

'Togetherness' (HBO)

You want primo binge-watching fodder? Now that the first season of Mark and Jay Duplass' extraordinary bougie-Angeleno dramedy has just ended its run (on one hell of a cliffhanger, no less), you'll want to rush through the show's inaugural eight episodes in a single sitting. Though the brothers are better known through their acting gigs — Mark is on FX's The League; Jay plays the record-producer brother on Amazon's hit Transparent — they've been fixtures on the indie-filmmaker scene for years, and this look at the agonies and ecstasies of an unhappily married couple with the sort of funny, painful truthbombs that's their stock in trade. Each one of the performances are spot on, though Amanda Peet and co-creator Steve Zissis, respectively playing an immature sister and an immature best friend, jockey for MVP status; the dialogue makes you feel as if you're eavesdropping on a group therapy session (but in a good way). Despite an initial trumpeting of publicity, it felt like this gem of a series came and went without so much as a whimper. Now's you're chance to catch up with it.
