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

Peaky Blinders and Outlander

Let's face it: We are currently living in the all-you-can-eat-smorgasbord era of TV viewing choices. And as more brand-name players jump into the original-programming game on what feels like a weekly basis (we're assuming that Google, Twitter and Buzzfeed are going to be announcing their own in-house networks any minute now), both the bounty of shows and the burden of keeping up are only going to increase. The upside, of course, is that there are more opportunities for both creative types to get their dream series made and for anyone with a television, a cable subscription and/or an Internet connection to check said series out. The downside is that the abundance of stuff at our fingertips also makes it easier for jaw-dropping, mind-expanding small-screen masterpieces to come and go without so much as a peep.

So while we've got a few moments to catch our breath before April unleashes a tidal wave of must-see TV (new seasons of Louie, Game of Thrones, Orphan Black, Veep and the final seven episodes of Mad Men will all be coming to you in the same freakin' month!), we've signaled out 10 shows you should be watching if you're not already. Some have been around for a little while, some are imports finally making their way to our stateside screens and some are straight out of the box. But all of them are either currently running or readily available to binge-stream from Netflix, HBO Go, Amazon, etc. And most importantly, whether it's a small-town murder mystery, a big-city cop drama, a historical romp or a modern-day character study, every single one of them deserves your attention. Happy viewing.
