My Top Shows!

These shows (The Good Wife, Person of Interest, Orange is the New Black, Orphan Black, The Americans, Downton Abbey, Elementary) my list as the best shows of 2013 is simple the writing, the storylines, and of course the acting.

Elementary is one of those shows you keep watching and don’t realize you can’t stop watching because it is so good. This is the first show that I’m ok with having no couple to ship (even though I ship Watson and Holmes friendship).

I was skeptical if I was going to enjoy Downton Abbey as Matthew is dead. I honestly was angry and believed the show will not be the same in a bad way. So glad I was wrong as Series 4 is one of my favorites and enjoyed it very much. I am anxious to see what is next season is in store.

When I first saw the promo for The Americans I knew I was going to enjoy it and it will be my guilty pleasure. It turned from guilty pleasure to OMG I can’t stop watching the episodes to being obsessed with it. The wigs, the love/hate relationships, the kick ass ness, the spying is just superb.

Orphan Black I had no idea what was going on when I started watching the show. I didn’t read anything about the show and I was so confused to what exactly what was happening, but I didn’t want to stop watching. I was so intrigued by the third episode I was obsessed. Tatiana blows your mine as does Felix.

I knew a lot of the big time actors on Orange is the New Black so I gave the show a shot. I didn’t expect to enjoy the show as much. The writing is amazing as well as the dynamics on the show. So much storylines the show can go with also background stories. The crazy thing there isn’t one character on the show I dislike, even the ones I should dislike I love.

The most underrated show is Person of Interest. For 2 seasons this show has been consistent with no storyline that is boring or the main focus from the other storylines. It is the only show that my jaw drops every episode, the only show that doesn’t take think inside of the box, and takes chances. The writing is just wow and so is the acting. One of the best shows of 2013 without a doubt.

The show that has the number one spot for best show of 2013 is The Good Wife. After season 4 I thought the show was losing steam with boring storylines. Season 5 came with a bang is still going strong. The show is now a new beginning and kind of starting fresh, like it’s a new show with all the old characters. Not a lot of shows can do this and pull it off, but TGW did it and doing a great job at it.

Best Actress and Best Actor in a Drama Series

For best actress in a Drama series my votes are between 4 amazing actresses with 2 who I believe should win.

My first is Emmy Rossum. Every season she kills it as Fiona on Shameless, but season 3 I believe she just blew it out of the park. Emmy needs to get nominated for an Emmy year, she definitely deserves it.

Kerry Washington made Scandal this season. Her acting is just superb. Her facial expressions are just as good.

Keri Russell

* Winner *

Once I seen the promo for The Americans I knew Keri was the reason I wanted to watch the series. She just killed it at every episode. She made wigs look good. She has a great chance at winning. Even though it’s only the first season, she brought it.

Tatiana Maslany

* Winner *

No one deserves to win this award more than Tatiana. Is it possible to have 6 slots for nominations for all the different characters she plays?! When watching Orphan Black you forget each clone is played by Tatiana. She brings each character out like no other.

Now for Best Actor in a Drama series

Michael Hall

He brought out Dexter in a whole new way. Sad the series is coming to an end, but season 7 came back thanks to Hall doing an amazing job.

Michael Emerson

* Winner *

Person of Interest is underrated. Michael brought it every scene he was in. How he is and flashbacks were amazing. He deserves to be recognition on his amazing work.

Matthew Rhys

* Winner *

He has my vote for Best Actor. He was amazing on the Americans and what great chemistry with Keri he had.

Best Drama Series

20130710-143222.jpg

Kicking off my dream nominations with best drama series. This was hard category as I watch a lot of drama shows. I have 7 nominations and chose 2 that I would like to win. I chose by a show by it`s whole not a few episodes.

Scandal
I chose this show because this season was one if the best. Each episode was jaw dropping and there were so many twists and turns that I was always wondering what will happen next. Very few shows can have a solid second season and Scandal did not disappoint. Cast and the writing was superb.

*My Winner*

I was late on watching this show, but so glad I started watching it. It is so mind blowing. The writing is just phenomenal. The cast is just as great and Tatiana Maslany is just wow. I haven’t seen a show like this in a long time. The mystery, story telling, and how fast paste the show is just blows my mind. This show started late and probably won’t get the nomination, but it is a show that everyone should keep an eye.

Parenthood

One of the most underrated shows on right now. This past season was an emotional rollercoaster for me. By far one my favorite season. So much depth from relationships to new families to cancer. This season brought it all.

Elementary

Wasn’t sure exactly if I would like this show as I watch a lot of crime shows, but this show surprised me. The chemistry (friendship vibe) between Sherlock and Holmes is spectacular. Very well written.

Person of Interest

One of best season 2 from any show. It`s solid, fast paste, and draws you in. This show is consistent and its very hard for me to choose a favorite episode as each one is just as good. The cast just pulls me in and never lets go.

20130710-143512.jpg

The Good Wife

Not a solid season, but better than a lot of other shows. The writing has a lot of directions it can go and this season it chose not to go there and a lot of storylines dragged out.

The Americans

* My Winner *

Once I seen the promo for this show, I knew it was going to be just as good. The writing and characters draw you in. Each episode a small layer peals and jaw drops. The acting on each character is just superb. I definitely see this show getting nominated and even a good chance at winning.

Now it’s your turn, let me know which shows you want nominated and which to win. Leave a comment below
