  1. Unlike Season 5's two-hour premiere, which easily could have been edited to half its length, every minute of Sunday's episode feels necessary, checking in with all our favorite players and dancing with Weiner's favorite theme, death.
  2. It's a powerful, emotionally engaging character study.
  3. Southland brims with plot twists that never, ever feel contrived.
  4. Justified continues to explode with superb writing, complex characters and rich acting.
  5. And we're off and running with another season of great animation, skillful voice acting and hilariously foul-mouthed fun.
  6. Stuffed with absurd situations and piles of bad taste, Wilfred is the strangest new show on TV. And the funniest.
  7. The visual style pours as much emotional juice into the boiling, moody brew that Gilligan cooks up as his actors' searing performances do.
  8. True Blood works best when its freak flag flies--as long as its core characters are along for the ride.
  9. These final episodes overflow with love, compassion and one lesson we all can take to heart: Cathy lived.
  10. Unlike in "Homeland," the show's main conceit grows even more complex and fascinating by including the Jennings kids.
  11. Damages proves once again why it is one of the smartest thrillers on TV.
  12. [Show creator Callie Khouri] has created rich histories for each of her compelling characters. The actors give nuanced performances that make their characters more than one-dimensional cliches.
  13. Game Change is less about Palin than it is about this sad state of political affairs....That message made an impression, as did two amazing performances, beginning with Julianne Moore's uncanny and nuanced portrayal of Palin.
  14. It gets darker, scarier and more captivating with each episode as Luther matches wits with killers and cops alike.
  15. The Returned is far and away the most thoughtful and thought-provoking series I've watched this year.
  16. An enigmatic and engrossing whodunit that should move to the top of everyone's DVR queue.
  17. The story remains completely realistic and believable while paving new roads for future developments.
  18. With its strong performances, subtle details and believable situations, Looking presents a convincing portrayal of everyday life--either gay or straight.
  19. It's not always pretty or easy to watch, but Southland remains an outstanding hour of appointment TV.
  20. With all its harsh realism and attention to detail it feels more authentic than a lot of the actual historical dramas on TV.
  21. The first three episodes of the epic fantasy's fourth season reach new heights at times, offering enough twists, shocks and action to make us forget last season's mind-blowing Red Wedding.
  22. Where it truly excels is in showing the emotional costs paid by the super soldiers doing their jobs and by the witnesses and/or victims of all the mayhem.
  23. [Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey's] riveting work would be worth the admission alone, but the hauntingly beautiful True Detective excels in every way.
  24. As Sarah makes one shocking discovery after another, Orphan Black weaves an increasingly intricate, suspenseful tale.
  25. Hunted is an intriguing and rewarding puzzle worth (trying) to solve.
  26. Season 3 is off to a roaring good start.
  27. The mystical mumbo jumbo nearly derails the proceedings, but Goyer reins in the hookum in favor of frolicking adventure that's more fun than fact.
  28. Cougar Town returns with its wit, silliness and good-heartedness fully intact.
  29. Silicon Valley is a funny, insightful, blistering satire.
  30. The show is way more than a thriller--although it could stand tall if it were just that. It continues to subtly examine the effects their high-risk and dangerous jobs have on the brave special ops soldiers fighting evil in the world.
