10. Arrested Development (Netflix)
How did 2013’s most overhyped show become its most underrated? By being what made Arrested Development a cult classic in the first place: uncompromisingly unique. Instead of the expected collection of madcap hit singles, we got a dense concept album about the theme of its title, boldly tailored for an emerging binge-stream medium. This fourth season was an intricately interconnected set of overlapping stories filled with bold time jumps, impish misdirection, and clever Easter eggs. And ostriches. Repeated viewings have made me appreciate its crazy ambition, and laugh, laugh, laugh. The ironic fate of the Arrested Development revival: It’s a season ahead of its time.
