    Errrr...the Doakes scenes of Dexter finale were new scenes- does he know nothing about this show? And Dexter obviously looks older a wig doesn't change that...and the whole point of the flashbacks was to reveal new details about dexter and doakes's relationship - so ergo how are those old scenes????? Geez Why do you bother watching the show or reviewing if you have no respect, admiration, interest and clearly knowledge of the show? -Cory!

    5. Either Shameless or American Horror Story. both had/having great sophomore seasons
    4.The Walking Dead- The premiere, the 4th episode, and mid season finale woah!
    3.Dexter-Season 7 kicked ass. Hall, Carpenter and Strahovski nailed it
    2.Community- Evil Abed! and Annie in the dreamatorium. nuff said

    1. Fringe- Season 4 was crazy good and 'Letters of Transit' did an excellent job at setting up The Final Season.

    Homeland(specifically the bomb) and Breaking Bad (the train heist episode) deserve shout outs,too.

    Price, if you are looking for a show to re-cap, please consider Roswell. Its a show filled with cheese and intensity and also young/old faces! Would be hilarious to hear your take on the show!

    oh Price I don-t believe the TVD writers can become that bad all of a sudden... I mean maybe they could have handled stuff better this season but I have a theory that there-s something else going on and what has been bad this season is that they tried to mislead us in a less great way than they did in season 2, like the fake sun and the moon curse remeber? if you don-t or anyone else is interested I can post a link to a tumblr post that explains everything better and even hypothesizes that Klaus and Shane are working together, I know that seems way too out there but once you rewatch the whole thing it doesn-t look that unbelievable (pardon my English it-s 3 a.m.)

    1. Game of Thrones2. Breaking Bad3. The Walking Dead4. Homeland5. New Girl

    There's something about a top two that makes picking a top 1 so impossible. For me I went with the one that I was most excited to start watching as opposed to which one I was most excited about afterwards. Also, I understand that this is a very boring/predictable top 5 but that's what happens when you pick 5 instead of 10.

    5. Community (Season 3 eas so amazing and apart from the mockumentary episode, evrything was great from Abed and Troy's ''Pillows and Blankets''to the brilliant Remedial Chaos Thoery)

    4. Dexter ( After a dull season 6 which almost killed the show so much expectations as to what will happen with Deb's discovery whether the show will just maneuver and continue with Dexters secret, Season 7 was great in each episode with well written plot, amazing villains and so much twists and tension throughout the season.

    3. Homeland (it is so amazing how the writers kept everything tight despite the big reveal in the 1st season and though the season was as bipolar as Carrie, it had some great episodes like Q&A;, Two Hats and the season finale, solid performances from the lead cast Claire and Damien Lewis and the amzing Mandy Patinkin )



    2. Game Of Thrones (After the superb season 1, season 2 continued the trend with great Drama, plotting and production in a big way, It was engrossing and engaging with so many amazing episodes all season especially the brilliant Blackwater,)

    1. Breaking Bad (The Best TV show currently with that continues to surpass each previous season, Gus demise was supposed to be a dent on the show but the way it portrayed the characters this season and is unfolding is a beauty to watch the 1st half of the season, awaiting the rest to cement the show its legendary status as one of the best show ever made.)

  • KnoX Dec 23, 2012

    1. Dexter
    2. The Big Bang Theory
    3. Suits
    4. Last Resort
    5. Person Of Interest

    Loved all the show talk, especially since I watch all those various finales.

    Price you nailed down the TVD analogy. Jeremy=Buffy. Alaric and the council= the scoobies.

    Here's my top five and I did like Jen said and showed my work. From greatest to the least (greatest):

    1. Community- Loved season 3. Lots of character growth and hilarity.

    2. Pretty Little Liars- Another case of appointment television for me. I know this is just a crazy teen show but it's really beautiful and insane things are happening all the time. This year, they revealed two members of the A team and about a million other crazy things happened. Very fond of the characters and even care about their love interests.

    3. Game Of Thrones- Loved this season. It might have been better than the first. The battle did not disappoint except for Joffrey still being alive.

    4. Parks And Recreation- Wonderful comedy. Lots of character growth. Great big and little moments. Joe Biden was even on.

    5. Suburgatory- This show had a strong first season. The second season is great as well. Reveals have happened. Couples have already gotten together and broken up. Plus, there's the awesome weird silliness like Dalia's music video to get her nanny back.

    FYI: If you're having trouble recapping everything, I'm free to intern. J/k. Kinda...
