2016 Year-End Reviews: 16 Performers

We’re fairly certain that we can all agree in the words of Brooklyn Nine Nine’s Captain Raymond Holt that “everything is garbage.” While 2016 may have been an incredibly sad year, it has without a doubt been the best in television. Honestly, it’s difficult to recall the last time we’ve had such a hard time culminating our choices. And that said, performers are the heart of a series. Without them, the characters we cherish and adore wouldn’t be as extraordinary. They wouldn’t resonate with us in the seemingly effortless ways they do. Without their meticulously crafted performances we wouldn’t feel a single thing. Without further ado, it is these 16 performers that have made 2016 indescribable.

The Break” | Pitch 

It’s been a minute since our last This Week’s Most Exquisite TV Moment post, and we’re happy to state that we’re back in full swing now. And of course, our decision was ridiculously hard to make. Whether it was the plethora of amazing moments on Once Upon A Time’s “The Other Shoe”, the lovely moments in NBC’s new drama This Is Us, or the solid second episode of Timeless, we were in for a treat. But the decision came down to Pitch’s fourth episode that I’ve shamelessly watched probably over five times now. Oops?
