All excellent choices, OP. I was proud to cast my vote for Girls in honor of Miss Datalounge, Lena Dunham.

Toss-up between Breaking Bad and Homeland. Nothing else comes close, although a couple of the others are entertaining.

I voted Arrested Development even though I'm not sure it counts as "on TV". It was difficult to choose between it, Luoie and Parks and Rec though.

Mad Men is like pleather. Nice to look at but zero depth. Laughable that it's on the list.

Louie should have more votes.
Is Homeland really that good? What's so great about it? I'm looking or a good series to watch, but for some reason I have very little interest in Homeland. But if someone can give a convincing argument, ill check it out.

Mad Men over Game of Thrones - you silly queens. Oh, and r2, I have seen Breaking Bad. Breaking Bad is very good but it ain't no fucking Game of Thrones. There has never been anything on TV like GoT. Years from now, it will be more remembered than Breaking Bad. Deal with it!

R10, Homeland is worth watching for the acting alone, but it also has seriously good writing and tells an intriguing story.
I got so caught up in it I couldn't believe I was watching (and enjoying) Mandy Patinkin. I've always hated him, but he's very good and not a hambone in this.

Homeland is sooo overrated, especially Claire Danes' performance. I enjoy the show but it does not deserve all those Emmys over shows that are, quite frankly, more superior.

I don't think so. Breaking Bad has been excellent through every season, whereas the source material for GOT plummets after book three. Sadly, GOT is likely to be remembered as yet another show that started out amazing and then went to shit.

American Horror Story, especially the first season. I like The Walking Dead, but AHS is better.

Oh, I should have put AHS instead of The Americans.

I enjoy both Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones, but GOT has far more staying power; it will be one of the great events of television history.
Mad Men has gradually come to bore me, I can't say why; it was really exciting at first. But the premise comes to tire.

I Hope GOT gets awards and they don't dismiss it because it is fantasy. The stories of political intrigue are more captivating and even realistic than Homeland. Homeland's story went to hell when they made it a Romeo and Juliet story. In GOT, Carrie would have been killed.

"Girls", seriously? It's like a very loooong bad student film. The acting is atrocious and the characters are so revolting.
The person whose idea it was to give such responsibility to someone as clueless and talent-free as Lens Dungham, needs to beat to a pulp, then urinated on!

Claire Danes' spastic motions were expertly lampooned on SNL by Anne Hathaway. Mandy Pandy comes across as an unlikeable cunt.It's like a fourth rate version of 24. I wonder how faithful it is compared to the original Israeli series that it's based on....
Mad Men has become a bad soap opera. Pete smoking pot, Peggy wanting to fuck Stan to get rid of a rat and Don smoking out of a hooka is beyond jumping the shark. It's become As The Young and Beautiful of Our Lives Visit General Hospital!
Game of Thrones so far they've done great adaptations of the books that are hard for a lot of people to wade through. If they can turn the rest of the books into something watchable then they will have outdone themselves.

Newsroom is awesome.
Homeland has way too many plot holes -- nobody saw Damien Lewis texting during the terrorist takedown scene? He wouldn't even be allowed to bring a phone into that room. And, after he was "discovered," the CIA, NSA ect never checked his phone records? Mandy Patkin's character just happened to find a thumbdrive or flash card in a bag that the CIA or the likes thereof already processed for evidence? A bipolar CIA agent? Please, CSI has better writing.
|by Anonymous||reply 37||06/15/2013|
R36 No I think you are watching the wrong show. Peggy was willing to give Stan some if he came over and solved her rat problem. It just so happened that Stan had already fucked a fine lady who was sleeping right next to him! End of phone call, Peggy had to solve the problem without Stan.

The Americans is excellent, I'm glad it's one of the choices. Arrested Development in its prime was one of the all-time classics. The Netflix eps are great but not as good as my current favorite comedy, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. 30 Rock is another of my favorite comedies, but it just ended. I like Parks and Rec but not nearly as much as the above comedies. I also love Breaking Bad, American Horror Story, and Louie. Tough poll, but in the end I went with AD because I tend to favor comedy over drama.

R38, you're an idiot. Peggy was obviously sweet talking Stan. She had no intention of fucking him or even fully suggesting she would.

R40 You're not only an idiot BUT a clueless and oblivious cunt. Pay attention to the character you're talking about instead of creating your own demented fantasy. Peggy is not above screwing her co-workers.Peggy fucked Pete. She fucked Duck too.She would have fucked Stan to have gotten rid of the rat. Stop sewing your caftan when watching and start paying attention.

Game of Thrones is really well done. I agree with the posters who noted that this will be looked at as a great achievement in television history.
For my money, The Good Wife was the other best drama on TV this year.
Modern Family and The Middle are the best comedies.

Homeland fell apart in its second season... just crumbled to pieces. It turned into the Brody and Carrie love show.
Veep is one of the best shows.
The Good Wife has also faltered since season 1 -- now it's just a middle brow case of the week show.
|by Anonymous||reply 66||06/28/2013|
I'm with R44. Person of Interest is brilliant. I am so glad that they are dipping into the back stories of the two main characters, whilst giving us a stand-alone episode each week. Jim Caviezel is dead sexy even though he is a devout catholic and holds fundy notions.

Now? Breaking Bad without a doubt. The show that slipped the most between seasons is certainly Homeland. A good intrigue show reduced to a faux romance.

Definitely Breaking Bad for me. I loved Mad Men, but it's grown stale. Weiner conceived at as a 5 year show and the fact it's in it's sixth year says a lot. The first season of Homeland was excellent, the second season? Meh. I do love GoT, but Breaking Bad wins for me because it's not fantasy, which isn't usually my thing.
As for comedies, I SO want to like Veep. But it's just the same joke, over and over. Louie is my favorite for comedy, though I haven't seen the new AD yet.

Thank you, poster who mentioned Suits! I would think a lot of gay guys would love it; the 2 male leads are hot, hot, hot. I'm a straight chick but that Megan Markle (as the paralegal) is hot.
Oh, yes (I GUESS I'm straight???), and on Homeland - to the poster who wondered, why to watch it - the plots are great, scary, violent - yet interesting, and once again:
HOT TO DEATH actress: Morena Baccarin!
And the character of the daughter is to hate-watch over!
