Hello, everyone! As another great year of serialized television has come to an end, I thought I’d look back at some of my favorite seriables of the past 12 months. Think of this as a precursor to our official Seriable.com list that we’ll shortly be releasing.
Those of you who follow me on Twitter (hint, hint) would know that I rate every TV episode I watch. This top 13 list is the result of the calculated average of all the episodes of each show that have aired in the past year. That, to me, seems like the fairest way to judge each show as they’ve been all year, and not just in their separate seasons or episodes!
2013 has been a great year for serialized television. Some great seriables have reached their end, but new ones have entered the stage, and many of them are definitely worthy of a spot on this list.
This article is meant to share my thoughts on shows not everyone might have seen, which is why I did my best to be as vague as I could. However, a fair spoiler warning should be in order – especially for shows in their later seasons. Be vigilant.
Here’s my top 12 of 2012, for good measure:
1. Breaking Bad (Season 5A)
2. Game Of Thrones (Season 2)
3. Fringe (Seasons 4 & 5)
4. The Walking Dead (Seasons 2 & 3)
5. Sherlock (Season 2)
6. Awake (Season 1)
7. Dexter (Season 7)
8. Person Of Interest (Seasons 1 & 2)
9. Homeland (Season 2)
10. Alcatraz (Season 1)
11. Once Upon A Time (Seasons 1 & 2)
12. House (Season 8)
