The League: Season 5 (TV, 2013)
"The best part of the premiere is that Ruxin, who earned the Sacko last year for finishing last, does not want to go along with the Sacko punishments, so he temporarily joins Rafi's Domination League. "
Futurama: Season 7 (TV, 2012)
"After breaking the universe, there was a bittersweet beauty in watching Fry and Leela grow old together in a frozen world, reminding audiences that Futurama was always capable of creating remarkably touching moments within its hilarity. "
Breaking Bad: Season 5 (TV, 2012-2013)
Melrose Place: Season 1 (TV, 2009-2010)
"I can't say yet whether the new Melrose Place will reach the same lunatic heights of its predecessor. But the fact that the show is so unapologetic about aspiring to be a water-cooler nighttime soap? I have to respect that a little. "
Broadchurch: Series One (TV, 2013)
"Broadchurch doesn't come with many stylistic flourishes -- it's a pretty straightforward crime story. But the care given to its characters and the damage the crime inflicts on the town make it one of the best scripted series of the summer. "
Prince Avalanche (2013)
The Bridge (FX): Season 1 (TV, 2013)
Camp: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
Dexter: Season 8 (TV, 2013)
"It's incredibly sad to watch the once kick-butt Deb turned into this shell of her former self, yet it only makes sense in the wake of last season's events. Also, it's giving Jennifer Carpenter some really meaty material and she's absolutely killing it. "
Ray Donovan: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
Crossing Lines: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
Twisted: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014)
"I'm more interested in how shaken Jo and Lacey have become by Danny's return. The way these two girls, whose relationship disintegrated in the aftermath of their childhood trauma, have been forced back together is fascinating. "
King & Maxwell: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
Graceland: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
Under the Dome: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
The Killing: Season 3 (TV, 2013)

Family Tree: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
The Big C: Hereafter (TV, 2013)
Rectify: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
"Each episode of Rectify unfolds like a new chapter in a richly engrossing novel, fleshing out these characters with fascinating precision, and giving every member of the supporting cast a chance to shine. "
Hemlock Grove: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
Nurse Jackie: Season 5 (TV, 2013)
Da Vinci's Demons: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
Hannibal: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
"Creator Bryan Fuller and his team also deliver one of the richest visual experiences you'll see. Hannibal is pretty much the opposite of Fuller's Pushing Daisies in tone and in subject matter, but his flair for a great image remains. "
"The show isn't breaking new ground anywhere. It feels like a happy medium between The New Normal and Everybody Loves Raymond, but it manages to feel comfortably familiar as opposed to stale and overdone, largely due to the talented, relatable cast. "
Orphan Black: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
Red Widow: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
"There's no real chemistry between Mitchell and their children stand out as weak links, the mafia angle feels watered down for network TV, and none of the characters pop out as compelling individuals. "
Cult: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
Beautiful Creatures (2013)
Zero Hour: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
A Good Day To Die Hard (2013)
Identity Thief (2013)
Side Effects (2013)
Community: Season 4 (TV, 2013)
"Community is still funny. I'd even go so far to say that this show remains one of the silliest, cleverest and weirdest comedies on television. And the Season 4 premiere had moments of that sheer brilliance we have loved about Community for years. "
Monday Mornings: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
"In theory, moving to cable should allow Kelley greater freedom to do his thing without the added pressure of pleasing a major network. That's why it's even more disappointing that Monday Mornings turns out to be so warmed-over and dull. "
House of Cards: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
"It's only a matter of time before they make at least one misstep and others start catching on to their game -- and it's hard to decide so early on whether it is a game we should be cheering for them to win. "
Do No Harm: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
The Americans: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
The Americans: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
American Horror Story: Asylum (TV, 2012-2013)
"I'd rank "Asylum" slightly above "Murder House" in terms of consistency and overall artistry, but with back-to-back seasons this compelling, surprising and wonderfully acted, I can't wait to see what American Horror Story gets told next. "
The Following: Season 1 (TV, 2013)
"Anyone looking for soapy twists and turns, shocking violence and a fast-paced ride will get what they want from creator Kevin Williamson and crew, just don't expect the show to dig deep into its characters or give you much to think about in the process. "
