By  |  4 Comments

David Bianculli, TV critic for NPR’s Fresh Air, has released his picks for best TV of 2011, and True Blood makes the cut! Coming in at number 10 on his Best Scripted Series list, Bianculli cites “the show’s constant plot twists” as having him hooked. We agree, man. We agree.

    Hard to take any list that has ‘American Horror Story’ on it instead ‘Game of Thrones’ seriously. My top 5 TV drama’s of the year:

    1. ‘Breaking Bad’
    2. ‘Game of Thrones’
    3. ‘Homeland’
    4. ‘Justified’
    5. ‘Boardwalk Empire’

    Sorry, ‘True Blood’. I still love you, but in a stupid fun type of way. Not in a serious, well made drama way.

    My top 5 shows of the year:

    1.Game of Thrones
    2.True Blood
    3.Boardwalk Empire
    5.Sons of Anarchy

    Luv American Horror Story and AMC’s new show Hell on Wheels. But, that’s my take.

    FYI the Xfinity ad at the top of the page made it almost impossible to post on this thread. That is a new one. Don’t know if anyone else had this problem. And to keep on more topic, I think TB should have been far higher than 10, but then I am a true fan. LOL
