The 20 Best TV Shows Of The 2013/2014 Season

The Playlist:
Bad news if you’re a member of the Television Academy: balloting for this year’s Emmys closed on June 20th, with the nominees to be announced a few weeks from now, on July 10th. That officially brings to an end the 2013/2014 TV season, and if anyone was worried that the string of quality TV was starting to come to an end as some of the most famous dramas and comedies of recent years wrapped up their runs, they were sorely mistaken: the medium is in as remarkably healthy a state as ever.

Aside from Game of Thrones, True Detective, and Breaking Bad, this list is really not very good. I wonder who decides on these and who watches all these. I can name others that are so much better like Banshee and Orphan Black. There are others too but you know how that goes.

Orange is the New Black, Louie, Hannibal, Masters of Sex... there are PLENTY of other worthy choices on that list. The order is a complete mess, for sure, but to say that banshee is better than ANY of those, or that Orphan Black is even in the same league as Hannibal is silly.
