Whether it is Jeffrey Tambor and the rest of the Transparent cast or the ladies on Orange Is The New Black, these shows have the best overall acting on television today.
Though many of these series also have great writing and nuanced individual performances, what really sets them apart are the ways in which the entire casts of every show are great performers.
