Top 10 Best TV Series (June)

The return of the study group in “Community,” the battle of the Norse gods in “Ragnarok,” and the TV version of John Green’s “Looking for Alaska.” Here’s our top 10 Best TV Series in June.

#10 Ragnarok (new entry)

new-logoWe’re not sure how much real action Ragnarok is going to have, and we hope subsequent episodes are better-paced. But it’s still a novel approach to the usual Norse legend story, and should be fun to watch. -Decider

#9 Angelos House (new entry)

new-logoFeaturing German model Angelo Carlucci, Angelos House is funny and light, the banters are reminiscent of Two and a Half Men‘s comedy albeit no sons here. The best story so far is the case of the missing coffee. There’s also this man named Aaron (played by Aaron Breyer) who makes each story fun to watch with his constant need of tissue papers. Angelos House is in German but with subtitles. –Geekgod Review

#8 East Siders (returning)

returnA 2012 dark comedy web series about boyfriends Carl and Thom who were living in Los Angeles, “EastSiders” earned many praises that we had high expectations on it. Like “You’re the Worst,” this show has the depth that is lacking from most shows today. The screenshots like those of the ’60s (like blurry and has somehow sad feeling about the place). -Geekgod Review

#7 Bolivar (unchanged)

retainThis series is for history buffs and the audience in South America familiar with his story. In other words, this is not a series that would get international attention. But those who seek to learn more about this polarizing figure will definitely enjoy watching this series. –Geekgod Review

#6 Please Like Me (up from last month’s #9)

up-arrowThis is not a series which you could just casually watch because every episode of the show is riveting and fun, and just plain simple but real. The dynamics of the actors with each other is great bringing out the humor in the show while not losing its raw story and humanity of the characters. –Geekgod Review

#5 Sweet Magnolias (new entry)

new-logoI cannot in good faith describe this show as “good” but I also can’t deny that it knows exactly what it’s trying to be. There’s nothing deceitful about that, which, in today’s glut of depressing reality, counts for something. -The Guardian

#4 The Letter for the King (up from last week’s #10)

up-arrowHands up who fancies leaving Earth, exiting the 21st century – or both? Netflix’s The Letter for the King might not be the greatest adventure series, but its offer of an alternative reality is eerily well timed. –The TV Addict

#3 Love, Victor (new entry)

new-logoBut for a first season, it’s impressive how effectively it turns Love, Simon’s epistolary structure against itself. Victor’s messages are not love letters. They are a spinoff doing its best to push back against the narrow perspective of its origin story. -Vulture

#2 Looking for Alaska (up from last week’s #8)

up-arrowThe show admittedly has to toe a tricky line since one of Alaska’s most defining qualities is that she plays her cards extremely close to the chest. She doesn’t want anyone to know her, and so the show, too, has trouble unveiling who she is. The best that “Looking for Alaska” can do is to make the “Alaska” of it all impossible to ignore. -Variety

#1 Community (unchanged)

retainCommunity may be the trickiest comedy on TV. For pop culture connoisseurs, it’s like a delicious, greasy, but still organic feast: any given episode (like the great Halloween one) is a tightly constructed, au courant homage to worn-out stories, plot cliché, and character archetypes — it’s an inspired take on a lack of inspiration; a celebration of what makes pop culture bad that makes it uproariously good. –The TV Addict
