The Definitive ‘Best Web Series of 2014’ List

You’re going to see a lot of lists over the next 2 weeks. “Best of This” and “Best of That.” Everything you’ve consumed or thought about consuming this year will be put into a sort of arbitrary context by some oaf who doesn’t much like spending time with family and does like listing the 10 or 20 or 100 things he or she thinks are “super legit.” It’s pathetic, presumptuous, and totally subjective. This is not one of those lists for one reason and one reason only: it’s definitive, objective, and 100% right in every way. You could argue with the selections, but you’d be wrong. So don’t embarrass yourself. Read below and get in the know (#rhyme2014). These are the five best web series of the year.

(Listen: if you disagree, that’s totally cool. There’s a ton of really great stuff that came out this year. These are just straight up gut calls. I actually had a list of like 75 at first. Then I chopped it down because Adam Frucci yelled. He wasn’t mad, he just…Anyway, everyone this column covered this year is great and should feel really proud. Don’t let lists like this define you.)

Do not test me on this. These are the 5 and I’m VERY sure of that. Get it?

(Happy New Year and thanks for reading!)

1. Written It Down

It’s tough to top improv this consistently hilarious.

2. Small, Medium, Tall

It’s tough to top an ensemble with this kind of chemistry.

3. Business Work

It’s tough to top episodes this beautifully absurd.

4. BedHead

It’s tough to top writing that rings this true.

5. Gary Saves the Graveyard

It’s tough to top comedy that makes you feel this much.
