Best-Reviewed TV Drama 2020

The drama category pulls together the best of what’s old, what’s new, what’s limited, and what’s a miniseries – dramatically speaking. You’ll see, for instance, season 4 of The Crown holding court in the top spot, and season 5 of Better Call Saul at No. 2.

The category’s unexpected delight comes in at No. 5: season 1 of Netflix’s international hybrid crime drama–romance Giri/Haji, starring Takehiro Hira and Kelly Macdonald.
