BEST ‘GEEK’ TV SHOWS of 2015 [Clergywide Top 5]: Jess and Matty.

…and you thought only Derek “Divine” watched TV here at GHG.

Welcome to yet another installment of GodHatesGeeks‘s Bests lists, this time with the boob tube. Or Netflix. Hulu. Your mom’s ginormous cable contract. Or bootleg torrents on your phone. However you watch, we were there.

While some of us strayed away from the geekin’ path (Gollldddddberggggss! Gollldddddberggggss!), we did our best as a whole to keep the list as relevantly nerd as possible. And how could we not, with the massive superhero, horror and sci-fic overload that was television in 2015?


Who wins the Netflix Big 2? Who faired better between TV titans, HBO and AMC? Flash vs. Arrow!  Find out below, and feel free to click on the respectibe bible scores to read our full reviews.
