The summer television season is in the books.
It was one to remember for surprising hits (Mr. Robot!!!!), along with mammoth failures (True Detective Season 2).
Which performances, romances and shows stood out? Which made us especially anxious for fall programming to return?
Let's hand out some Summer TV Awards, shall we?
It was unique. It was suspenseful. It was shocking. It was filmed unlike any show in recent memory and, if future seasons hold up to Season 1, Mr. Robot will go down as one of the best shows in television history. Yes, we said it.
Rami Malek on Mr. Robot. The drama doesn't just take viewers inside Elliott's head; it makes you truly feel like you ARE Elliott. And Malek brings Elliott to life in all his confused, trippy, intense glory.
Hey, remember True Detective Season 1?!? Let's just pretend Season 2, its cliche-ridden storytelling, its complicated/boring plot and its strange insistance of focusing so heavily on Vince Vaughn's awful character, never existed.
Most Inspiring Transgender Star
Least Inspiring Transgender Star
CeCe Draka; i.e. A on Pretty Little Liars.
Best (un)REALity Show
UnREAL took us behind the scenes of a Bachelor like reality series and made viewers immediately fall in love with the story and characters, whether they actually liked them or not. Waiting week to week was almost unbearable.
