All of which is to say that preparations for the sixth—holy cow SIXTH—annual TV.com Top 100 Everything list officially begin today. That's right, folks: Once again, we'll spend the last days of December reliving the most excellent television moments of 2013.

But of course, selecting the 100 most amazing things about TV from a entire year's worth of the stuff is no small task. And thus we'd like to know: What do you think should make our list for 2013?

Thing big, think small, think awesome: If it happened on (or had something to do with) TV this year, it counts. Seriously—from a brilliant new character to a particularly hilarious commercial to an all-around flawless episode of your favorite show to... well, you get the idea. So help us out, won't you?

Definitely The Good Wife - everything with Will & Alicia!
And of course the mid season finale of The Walking Dead.
Not to mention Sherlock; The Reichenbach Fall!

But also Masterchef Junior - Am I the only one who's crazy about this premise?? ;)
Last but not least; Rookie Blue! The last two episodes of the season were devastating. Absolutely heartbreaking! I can't believe Andy chose him! Again! So wrong :(

Best overall show and also best sci-fi/supernatural one - Haven;
strongest season with great baddies and very emotional character death as well as the best badass and the best character duo (how's that for the list of nominations for one show, huh?) - Person of Interest;
Best new show and comedy - Trophy Wife;
Best new character - definitely the Mother on HIMYM (get more of her finally);
Best couple - Audrey and Nathan (Haven), though Fringe's Olive and Peter will do too;
Doctor Who's 50th - AWESOMENESS!!!

The Daily Show - Jon Oliver Hosting and Jon Stewart's Chicago Pizza rant plus subsequent reactions
Game of Thrones - Knowing that the Red Wedding will almost definitely place in your Top 10, I'm gonna go with Jaime telling Brienne in the tub how he saved King's Landing. Give that man an Oscar Emmy or at least a cookie!
Justified - Raylan reacting to Arlo's death
Breaking Bad - Having to choose one scene out of too many: Walt and Hank's garage confrontation. Tread lightly!

And of course:
The Bridge - Linder beating a man to death with his iron wearing tighty whities

I probably missed quite a few but then again, these were the ones that came to mind at first. They must've left the most profound impression.

Okay after have seen the midseason finale of The Walking Dead you have the add the death of G on the list. Long time coming. Too bad he got a bullet by his scorn lover though, Michonne did the right thing to leave him crippled for the zombies and I wish that would have been his fate instead. I cheered when Michonne got him. I have to admit I also cheered when Carol's girls shot those intruders. Woha.
As for the rest of the ep it won't be on the best list I hope cause that was like the GoTs Red Wedding but in a bad way. Not that GoT wasn't bad but that ep was epic, this was just plain sad. Judith better be alive or I'll be really pissed in February.

The epic fringe finale, which was made even more special by the fact it even got renewed for a fifth season. Fox was losing money, and still committed to what was genuinely an amazing show!

Christ like the whole episode of "Ozymandias" in Breaking Bad. If I had to choose a moment...oh man I can't.

Sleepy Hollow -- Also a couple of great quotes to be had on that show. Ichabod talking to the Onstar lady for one example.
Good Wife - So many good moments. Alicia and Will in her office when he clears her desk stands out.
Mentalist - end of Red John
SHIELD (Being a rebel and not typing the dots) --Great quotes on that show. But the show itself is good in the fact that it's one of the few I know of that tie directly into a movie series.
Castle- Richard meeting his father, he and Beckett's engagement.

Fringe - Walter sitting in the lab as his sins are projected onto his waning will.
The Big Bang Theory - "My Brain is better than everybodies!!!" Priceless Sheldon.
Supernatural - The Angels Falling.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Sidious vs Maul and Savage Opress!!!!!!
Game of Thrones - Arya's two conversations with Thoros of Myr, Dondarrion about Ned Stark and then the second is her conversation with Gendry. "I can be your family." Well acted, heart breaking. Jamie Lannister and Brienne in the bath. Tywin and The Queen of Thorns, the weight of that conversation was magical.
Breaking Bad - Walter standing admiring the boiling tank as Baby Blue plays. What a finale. ALSO the final scene, mocking LOST. His conversation wtih Skyler. Hank's death. Generally all of season 5.5
Glee - School Shooting.
The Walking Dead - Hershel being the hero, then finally breaking down. Spaghettit Tuesdays! Rick returning to 'power' and giving Hershel and the others leadership advice.
Elementary - Sherlock monologuing about his thoughts on existing in a different century (magnificent) or his conversations with the 'false' Moriarty. Chilling.
Marvels Agents of Shield - Simmons in her centric episode. Great acting, heart wrenching. Amazing.
Teen Wolf - Scott FINALLY becoming an Alpha.
Shameless US - Most parts of the final Episode. Frank thinking things over. Jimmy Lishman (Justin Chatman) being taken away onto the boat without any fate being certain. Ian saying bye to Mickey.
Homeland - Langley Bombing.

There's some good stuff on TV this year. POI and AHS:Coven are blowing my mind. Not to mention Hannibal.
But the best of the year must be Breaking Bad s5b.

A thing or two about Fringe (maybe Walters acid trip)
Some stuff for Game of Thrones (Dany obtaining her slave army was cool)
A few things about Spartacus (The final episode was glorious)
The Walking dead has had some good stuff going on this year
The finale for Siberia was pretty decent
Many things about Breaking Bad
Nothing about Dexter

I'm going to be the grumpy old man here and comment on a few things mentioned below that I disagree with.

* Sleepy Hollow: No way. Ichabod is cool, but the show is a mediocre supernatural procedural.

* John Noble on Sleepy Hollow: It was a bad episode and an unimportant role. Any actor could have played that part.

* Teen Wolf: The whole season was just a bunch of people posing and growling. The story was bad, and the fancy cinematography we saw in season 2 was gone.

* The demon wolf on Teen Wolf: Bad character, with a terrible plan that didn't really make sense.

* This person dying on that show: Those moments are memorable, but why only mention them when there are so many GOOD scenes to choose from?

* A ****load of people dying on another show: This one belongs on the list, but it's pretty silly that everyone who mentions it is neglecting all other scenes from the season. There were some truly epic ones.

* Nick Fury appearing on SHIELD: It was a cameo role in a standalone scene in a standalone episode of a mediocre procedural, and Samuel L Jackson didn't even need to show off any acting skills.
