    Rectify, season three, had a 100% rating. But because it only had 19 reviews, instead of 20, it doesn’t count. What a bummer! It had 10 top critic reviews, too. So disappointed. It is more than worthy of being included in this list.

    I thought Fargo was fantastic…they should have been nominated for ensemble cast at least at the SAG awards.
