The American Film Institute is usually a pretty good barometer of acclaim. For The Mandalorian, it already swept up plenty of Emmy Awards last year, but it now adds the AFI to it’s trophy cabinet. They made the top 10 list of TV Programs and joined critically acclaimed shows like Better Call Saul and Bridgerton.
AFI’s Top 10 Television Programs Of 2020
- Better Call Saul (AMC)
- Bridgerton (Netflix)
- The Crown (Netflix)

- Lovecraft Country (HBO)
- The Mandalorian (Disney+)
- Mrs. America (FX)

As you can see, it was the only Disney+ show to make the list, and really the only science fiction show also. So for fans of Star Wars, the second season of The Mandalorian was a huge hit, it’s now getting recognized critically as well.
