"Please Like Me" - FYC Clip : I think I've vouched for this show in every single one of these we've done in which it was eligible, so there's no surprise what my #1 is. And if you have not heard of "Please Like Me," you should immediately find a way to watch it's first season (as soon as you're done reading this article, at least). The Australian import -- picked up for US release on Pivot -- is a half hour comedy-drama based on the autobiographical stand-up of 26-year-old gay Aussie comedian Josh Thomas. It's hilarious and heartfelt and complex... Enough so that the first season gained something a cult following, and the second (premiering next month) should be an event as far as I'm concerned. It's probably more likely the other 5 shows I've mentioned will all be nominated than Emmy voters doing exactly what the show's title suggests, but at least you can be better than them by going and liking it yourself.
