2010 Obsessions: Our favorite shows of the year

Let's take a listen in while two of CNN.com's biggest TV addicts, Lisa France and Henry Hanks, weigh via instant message on their favorite television shows of the year.

HenryCNN: Well, Lisa, it’s that time of year again, when we look back and reflect on the year that has come and gone, so of course, the best TV of the year is on my mind.

FranceCNN: Wow, that year went fast! There were some great series in 2010 and some not so great.

HenryCNN: We lost so many quality shows this year like “24,” “Law & Order,” “Dollhouse,” “Party Down,” “Better Off Ted” and a little show about an island (I have a lot more to say about that later, of course).

FranceCNN: You know I am a “Law & Order” fanatic so I was super bummed about losing the original show – not to mention the cancellation of “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” even though that wraps up in 2011 so I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s get back to 2010. So what new shows have really made an impression this year?

HenryCNN: Well, it wasn't as great as 2009, but "The Walking Dead" and "Raising Hope," just a few episodes in, have a lot of potential (and viewers seem to agree). I'm looking forward to what 2011 holds for these shows. What impressed you about this year?

FranceCNN: I loved the fact that this was the year of the stellar comedy: “Modern Family,” “Glee,” and “Big Bang Theory” all scored big with critics and fans a like. These three definitely rank among my favorite shows of the year.

But there were quite a few that also let me down including “The Event.” I mean, that one seriously didn’t live up to all the hype in my opinion. What about you?

HenryCNN: Once they opened the door into that room in the hospital where all the little girls look like they had aged 50 years, “The Event” was officially too crazy for me not to keep watching. I’m strangely curious to see just how far they’re willing to take it.

As for what really disappointed me this year, it would have to be “Running Wilde.” Despite a few great moments, the show just didn’t work for me, and I don’t think Will Arnett and Keri Russell ever had the chemistry needed to pull it off. Based on the fact that Fox has left it off of their midseason schedule, it seems that audiences agreed. It’s just too bad, because there was so much talent involved.

I totally agree about this being a great year for comedy, which takes me to my most underrated show of the year. Among the great comedies on the air right now, like the trio you mentioned, “Community,” “Raising Hope,” “How I Met Your Mother,” “30 Rock,” and “The Office,” the one that holds a special place in my heart is “Parks and Recreation.”

The show really came into its own I season two, and the season finale, “Freddy Spaghetti,” is my favorite half hour of television this season. It didn’t hurt that the presence of Rob Lowe and Adam Scott added a lot to the show. It’s been a long seven months, and I can’t wait to see what they do in 2011. What’s your favorite underrated show?

FranceCNN: I’d have to say “Terriers.” I feel like it’s a quality show which really never got off the ground because people didn’t even understand what the title meant. Seriously, one out of three people I would talk to honestly thought it was a show about dogs.

Now we are about to head into 2011. Are there any mid-season replacements you are looking forward to?

I’m almost ashamed to admit it, but I’m slightly geeked out over Fox’s new animated show “Bob’s Burgers” which is set to air in January. It looks like it could be pretty funny.

HanksCNN: I’m wondering how Paula Abdul’s new show, “Live to Dance,” will turn out. I’m still trying to figure out if it has more in common with “America’s Best Dance Crew” than “So You Think You Dan Dance,” or if it’s a little of both. It may seem that we have more than enough dance shows on TV, but you can’t ignore Paula.

Out of all of the shows this year, it should come as no surprise to regular readers of the Marquee Blog that “Lost” was not just my favorite show of 2010, but should and almost certainly will be recognized as one of the most groundbreaking series of all time.

For all of the criticism about the “flash-sideways” scenes, the meaning behind the “pool of light” on the island, and the lack of clear answers to some of the show’s burning questions, I have a lot of respect for executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse for creating one of the most emotionally-satisfying series finales of all time. (Side note: How soon we forget, Golden Globes and SAG…) I defy anyone who’s at least a little familiar with the series not to shed a few tears or two watching that ending. Think of all the sci-fi/fantasy shows, especially, that had sub-par endings in comparison. Lindelof and Cuse did it their way, and for that, they deserve a lot of credit.

What was your favorite of 2010?

FranceCNN: I have to go with “Boardwalk Empire.”

I just love a period piece and it seemed to be a combination of some of what, in my opinion, have been some of the best shows HBO has had to offer in recent years: the organized crime ties of “The Sopranos,” the lush period detail of “Rome” and one of the best actors from “The Wire,” Michael K. Williams.

Steve Buscemi has finally found a role that befits his stellar acting chops and moves him beyond the odd ball. I just loved the show from start to finish and I can’t wait for it to return next season.

What about you Marquee readers? What was your favorite show of 2010?

    Son's of Anarchy is by far the best show on television right now. This last season was the best of the series and they just keep getting better. I mean come on a cameo by Stephen King? That's awesome! I'm a Lost fan as well. It ended the way it should have. Does everyone expect the show with so many questions not to leave a few unanswered? That's the point. Take from it what you will.

    My favorite show of 2010 was definitely Sons of Anarchy and the during the climactic scenes of the finale, a song by battleme "hey hey, no no" was just chilling to the bone. The way everything just tied together at the end killing evil Agent Stahl was awesome. I wonder why this show doesn't get more recognition.
    Terriers was my next favorite.

    CASTLE ALL THE WAY!!!! Its an amazing show the whole thing is just two people with great chemistry Nathan Fillion(Castle) and Stana Katic(Beckett) are two amazing actors they really liven up the show with their romance tension and the comedy of a writer following a cop around annoying her and her annoying him every once in a while. I have to say best show of 2010 by far..... :)

    Supernatural is the best show on TV. The show was just featured on the cover of TV GUIDE. Fans had to vote for their favorite show in order for it to get selected. That just shows how HUGE the fanbase is.

    The Walking Dead is also a huge favorite of mine. Zombie Apocalypse? Say no more!

    Obviously everyone on this board is failing to admit they secretly love "The Secret Life of the American Teenager"...otherwise, there is no way this ridiculous piece of garbage could stay on TV, not even on a network like CW.

    Does Glee really count as TV? I think of it more as the Disney Channel puking on Twilight and then appearing on TV via MySpace. As hoakey as it sounds, I'm a fan of just about everything Alan Ball does, so True Blood is always a DVR standard, but also let's not forget the premium channel favs like Dexter, Weeds and the surprise hit Boardwalk Empire (which incidentally made me long for the days of Kentucky Moonshine and Tommy Guns).

    Spartacus: Blood and Sand. A show that started off super horrible (the pilot episode) with no clear direction and terrible acting....and by the 3rd and 4th episodes, the writers had found their groove and the actors were starting to relish their roles. I have never seen a 13-episode series resolve so many storylines throughout the season and close with such a massive and satisfying finale! LOVED this show.

Most underrated TV channels:USA/ Bravo/Food Network!!I could watch each of those channels all day. – hope OWN will also be that kind of network soon, too.I love Grey's Anatomy, Detroit 187, The Closer. Covert affairs, The Good Wife, Brothers /Sisters...and when Ireally want to laugh-Chelsea Handler!.If I could catch anyone's ear about bringing back 2 shows, they would be Prison Break and Boston Legal.I do remain addicted to TV-it is my fave "guilty pleasure"!

    Two of my favorite basic-cable shows this year, other than "Louie" and "Rescue Me" (both equally brilliant), were "Saving Grace" and "Rubicon". Both were unfortunately canceled, as both shows didn't have many viewers but both were outstanding and deep. Apparently, TV doesn't respond to depth...just ratings.

    "Saving Grace" was given a chance to sprint to the finish line, quickly wrapping up after TNT blew their cash on too many new shows, but I think the biggest letdown was AMC not renewing "Rubicon" fro a second season. It was by far the best show I'd seen on TV in a long time, and they quickly pulled the plug after the last episode.

    Anyone who saw the large budget the AMC show "The Walking Dead" would realize that the network budget had to make some cuts, and despite "Rubicon" and its growing fan base, AMC gave it the ax.

    Foul, indeed!!!

      dude, I hate to say it but it sounds like your TV tastes are pretty bland. If you'd choose Rubicon over The Walking Dead, you should seek serious entertainment counseling, ASAP. But hey, you can always watch The CW, they always need viewers.

    I have a major problem with this list.

    1. It left off shows like NCIS, Doctor Who, Chuck, and pretty much all the shows on USA. There was absolutely no mention of Royal Pains, which was golden and only supposed to be summer filler but turned out so well done that it stayed.

    2. It included Glee. I tried to justify the choice, thinking that perhaps they were using last season as their standard, but only the first half of season 1, which aired last fall, was actually GOOD. Once the second half hit and they were all surprised that it caught on as well as it did, storylines sped up and we had almost no time to tie up loose ends, both literally and emotionally from a viewer's POV. This season, the autotune is more prevalent than ever (a big annoyance for a music teacher), the storylines and characters are becoming less believable and more 2-dimensional, and the song choices are making less sense. My husband and I couldn't stand the Christmas special they did – the only redeeming part was the gift of the robotic walker at the very end of the episode.

    And if any HS show choir was like the one in Glee, there would be no way that they would be taunted or harassed. As my husband likes to say, "That is the most talented unrecognized music department in the country."

You mention that twice, but no mention of Always Sunny or Eastbound & Down? Second, and a huge one, No mention of DEXTER!?!? That was just about the best season of TV in 2010.

    Certainly some points of agreement though. Modern Family & Big Bang brought the most laughs. Boardwalk Empire brought more than promised. In regards to drama and suspense, it didn't come close to Dexter though.

    No mention anywhere of The Daily Show or The Colbert Report, hands down the best hour of television, and its done 4 nights a week. Breaking Bad is the best scripted show. Rescue Me is still must see TV even though this last season was a little disappointing. Lots of great comedies, but I'll make special mention of The League, I have loved every season of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and somehow The League was even funnier than Sunny this year. Modern Family is amazing, and for once I was actually not bored by Mad Men. Very few new shows this year were any good, only one could stand watching the whole season was The Big C.

    I loved lost absolutely the best show of the last decade. If you love lost you will like The Event give it a little time. I actually wish they would move the Event to ABC with V. I have always loved V since I was a child. Favorite comedy MODERN Family. Wow great acting so funny cast is great . I also like the Middle and Cougar Town. I wish the 10 o'clock spot on ABC was a hour Comedy or lite drama instead of bringing down the mood with something tragic or depression. I love NBC Thursday Comedy night The 0ffice and Outsource very funny as well. Give the Event sometime. To me it is not about Aliens but human nature which is fascinating to watch. I love Survivor, Amazing Race and Dancing with the Stars. ABC has been rocking for a couple of years Good Job ABC

    Completely left off everyone's list... at least above is a 6 episode(and yes renewed so no Terriers broken heartedness) series on BBC called LUTHER. It is totally immersive and daring in scope. A Dexter-like is he good or is he bad teeter-totter character that's richly(and convincingly) portrayed by Idris Elba(The Wire). One of those shows that I stumbled upon and devoured its rivoting story arc(like walking dead's 6 power-packed episodes) in a couple of days. I felt like it was my secret, like noone else knew it existed. Such brilliance! Is Elba even British?! Then he pops up on the Golden Globes nominee list. Cat is out of the bag. Watch this series! Beware, however, its viceral daring might go beyond the average viewer's threshold of acceptable violence. Keep in mind also that it's British, so if limey accents turn real drama into instant Velveeta, skip it entirely. Otherwise, you'll be rewarded with fast paced plot development, roller coaster twists and unexpected turns as you race to keep up with Luther's demons. Enjoy!

    Terriers was far and away the best show in several years. The writing, acting and storylines were almost addictive. Closely following that would be GLEE, and all the shows on USA, especially Burn Notice, White Collar, Covert Affairs and Leverage.

    I think that television is a waste of time, space, and money. It is an embarassing and pointless addiction, and should be limited to all Americans. My opinion is that technology should only be used when absolutely needed. We are losing much needed face- to- face interaction, and becoming lazy, self- deficient people. Please try to cut down your use of computers.

    Pretty much everything on USA deserves serious acclaim...Burn Notice, Royal Pains, Psych, Covert Affairs, and White Collar are all excellently written and acted.

    Boardwalk Empire was an absolute pleasure to watch and got better as the season progressed. I agree that it is a very unexpected and unique role for Steve Buscemi and he has done a great job as Nucky. With the talk of the Law & Order cancellation, it's disappointing that there is no mention of Law & Order: UK, the British version of the show, which is now showing for the first time in the US. The episodes are adapted from original L&O shows very well, the acting is excellent, and the current cast is one of the best in the franchise. I hope it will be shown on NBC someday.

    It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia never gets the appreciation it deserves, even though it's one of the most clever comedies on TV.

    As far as comedies go, I agree with some above comments that The League had a great season. Really, really funny. Californication has to be mentioned in that category as well. Not a show for everyone, but great writing and hysterical.

      Making a show from such a popular book series is challenging, but I like a lot of the new elements- Terry and Arlene and their demon-baby, Jessica and Hoyt, Lafayette.

The Event was a bummer and I do not think it will be coming back next season. Other shows I have watched was Entourage with all of the drama this season and it showed the range of the lead, but I am sad that 2011 will be the last season for the show. Another show that no one talked about was Spartacus on Starz, Wow what a great show and it will be at the top of my list for 2011.

      Finally! Thank you! I was beginning to think I was the only one watching that. Timothy Olyphant is simply outstanding in that role, isn't he?

      I agree...Justified is great and Timothy Olyphant is definitely outstanding! I accidently stumbled onto a promo for that show just before it started and thought I'd give it a shot, not expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised and can't wait for the new season!

      Agreed, Justified is my favorite show on tv right now and the new season starts in Feb. Dexter is 2nd.

      Probably because no one actually watched that show. I really wanted to like it, but it always felt like the cast was trying NOT to excite the audience. It's a plane that never left the ground (you know what I'm saying, JFK).

    Burn Notice and Pysch are perfect fun, exciting, and well done tv shows. Boardwalk, True Blood, and Mad Men were best dramas.

      I agree, Burn Notice is fun. True Blood is a great show. I hope people check out season 2 of V. This show has potential to get much better after the season one ending.

      Denis O'Hare as Russell Edgington, the vampire King of Mississippi, stole the show from nearly all the other actors (though James Frain as "Franklin" nearly outdid him) in True Blood this season.

      He chewed the scenery as just about no one else can do. He's a delightful actor to watch.

      And now...time for the weather. Tiffany?

      Psych and Burn Notice, definitely the best of 2010

    Boardwalk Empire is for sure one of the best shows right now. However, Mad Men's fourth season was amazing! Mad Men for best drama e Steve Buscemi for best actor! Hope to see that on the golden globes! And I also think that The Vampire Diaries second season was surprisingly good! True Blood and Dexter were very disappointing.

    House sucks, Lost sucks, Survivor sucks. Party Down was garbage. Dexter is a waste. American Idol is sh|t. Boardwalk empire, no. Californication was good. Psych is probably the best show on TV right now. Entourage also good.

      Take it easy on KK, if everyone had good taste (or even moderately bad taste) then channels like TNT or TBS would have NO viewers. I say, KK, you have your opinion, regardless of how ridiculously stupid it may be :D

    I really enjoy "The Event". I hope it stays on the air. Usually when I like a quirky show, it is taken off the air. I.E. The show where the guy got tomorrow's newspaper. At first I was making fun of "The Event" because the aliens could move an entire plane from Miami to Arizona, but could not escape from prison. The writers actually took time to explain why they did not escape from prison.

      Well, "The Event" is still filming in downtown Los Angeles, so that's always a good sign for fans of that show.

      Sons Of Anarchy is the best show in years, Boardwalk was great too.

      As much as I wanted to like "The Event", it was SO predictable. Anyone who watched LOST could easily figure out the general plot-points. I recall after the 1st episode saying "They're either aliens or they're from the future" and guess what?...Aliens. As much as I admired John Ritter, his son needs to move on from this one, maybe take that girl from Disturbia with him (I know I would :)
