The Best TV Shows of 2013

This is another list that I won’t be writing for Film School Rejects, as that task has been left to our fabulous TV columnist Inkoo Kang, but I thought my picks might interest some folks out there. With that in mind, here they are, the 10 Best TV Shows I watched in 2013:

  1. Breaking Bad
  2. Orange is the New Black
  3. Game of Thrones
  4. Boardwalk Empire
  5. Justified
  6. Orphan Black
  7. House of Cards
  8. Masters of Sex
  9. Brooklyn Nine-Nine
  10. Veep

Sorry, Arrested Development and Mad Men, you barely missed the cut. Same with you, New Girl. And Downton Abbey. And Portlandia, Archer and Bob’s Burgers. And Homeland, despite that deeply satisfying finale. Damn, there was a lot of good TV on this year. It was almost better than all the movi… Shhh, nevermind.

The Best of 2013

Next week, the Film School Rejects team will begin our two week long Year in Review. It’s our most read period every single year, a celebration of a year’s worth of viewing. It’s going to be awesome.

Since I no longer share my Top Ten as part of the Year in Review (I leave that honor to our chief critic Rob Hunter), I’ll share it here. In a very particular order, here is my list of the Ten Best Films of 2013:

  1. Gravity
  2. Short Term 12
  3. Upstream Color
  4. The Wolf of Wall Street
  5. 12 Years a Slave
  6. Blue is the Warmest Color
  7. Captain Phillips
  8. Rush
  9. Much Ado About Nothing
  10. Zero Charisma

More comments to come, as you might imagine…
