The Best TV Lines of 2016: Critics Pick Their Favorites

Using the hashtag #BestTVLines2016, IndieWire and other television critics share their favorite TV quotes of the year.

BoJack Horseman

The IndieWire TV team has already narrowed down their favorite episodes of 2016, but now they’re sharing their favorite TV quotes of the year. Using the hashtag #BestTVLines2016, television critics like New York Times’ James Poniewozick, Variety’s Maureen Ryan and Uproxx’s Alan Sepinwall, among others, tweeted their favorite phrases from some of the best series out there. It’s an annual tradition started by Ryan and Co., but the entire Twitter community is encouraged to participate and share, creating a joyous celebration of the best small moments from the year of television.

Some of the notable shows that they chose bites from include “Billions,” “Veep,” “The Americans,” “BoJack Horseman,” and more. Among our favorites is IndieWire’s Michael Schneider’s “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” quote (we’re not biased, we promise): “F*ck you, 2016. F*ck. You,” which pretty much sums up the year.
