K's Best Shows of 2012
Any of my top 5 could have been #1 on my list. Picking #1 was very difficult but I decided to go with-
1. Breaking Bad- What a great season for Walt and friends. Can't wait for the final 8 episodes of this series.
2. Mad Men- one of my favorite shows of all time (up there with Sopranos and Seinfeld), so you know this is going to be high on my list. Season 5 was not as quite as good as Season 4, but still some great television.
HONORS FOR MAD MEN
3. The Walking Dead- and AMC takes the top three honors. Much more blood and zombies this season and yet the plot lines failed to disappoint.
4. Justified- Another great story line this season culminating with two of UIC Badger's favorite lines of dialogue: "It's a Piggy Bank" and "You dis-armed him!"
5. Boardwalk Empire- this season was uneven until the last two episodes, which were simply outstanding.
6. Homeland- not as good as season 1, but Season 1 may have been the best show of 2011.
7. Parks and Recreation- "Ron and Diane" episode with Christie Brinkley playing Jerry's wife! Brilliant!!!
9. Longmire- This one probably surprises you. A & E's series based on "Walt Longmire:" mystery novels series. Worth a watch.
10. (Tie) Veep, Episodes, and Nurse Jackie (The Premium Cable Sit-Coms)- With no "Curb Your Enthusiam" this year, had to go with these sit-coms. Really liked the dead-pan humor of "Veep" and looking forward to season 2.
Just missed- Sons of Anarchy
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Boss (Farewell! Season 2 was much better than 1)
Finally watched the first 2 seasons of "Games of Thrones." Well I liked it, probably would not cracked my top 20. Liked the first season much more than Season 2. Worst thing about this show- God forbid if you criticize this show to any one who read the books!!! I will say that Peter Dinklage is outstanding on this show. I will give Season 3 a try.
Favorite Late Night Talk Show- Craig Fergy
Favorite Web Series- Comedians In Car Getting Coffee.
