It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but if you are TV geeks like us Babblers, it’s almost equally as dreadful. Don’t get us wrong, we love all the eggnog and little baby Jesus, but after weeks of being deprived new episodes of our favorite series is enough to go ‘Dexter’ on someone. Well the wait is almost over and in preparation for the Spring line up, the Babblers wanted to list our top 5 shows of 2010. So here they are in no particular order:
1. 30 Rock (NBC)
BabbleOn has been a long time fan of the ‘SNL’ parody 30 Rock. Besides all of us being Tina Fey geeks, the witty dialogue and zany characters make this show hilarious and surreal.
2. Breaking Bad (AMC)
Probably the least known on our list, Breaking Bad is an award-winning series about chemistry teacher in New Mexico who has lung cancer and is selling drugs in order to financially support his loved ones. Yea, it’s a family show. Don’t miss it!
3. The Walking Dead (AMC)
As the biggest newcomer of 2010, The Walking Dead is the first legitimate horror/drama to come out in years. With a solid premise and top-notch production value, the dead is sure to stay walking for some time. It’s only 6 episodes in so hop on while it’s still new.
4. Dexter (Showtime)
As the center piece of Showtime’s ‘anti-hero’ movement, Dexter is as unconventional as it gets. Dexter is both villain and hero which blurs the lines between morality and justice. You have definitely not seen a show this brilliant before.
5. Community (NBC)
Community is the best comedy that no one is watching. This simple show about life in a community college is so self-aware of its own ridiculousness that it’s almost meta. It’s only in 2nd season so don’t miss it this Spring!
There are a few more honorable mentions like Chuck, How I Met Your Mother, Fringe, and Big Bang Theory. Let us know what TV shows you are babbling about!
