Top Ten Shows of 2012

Last year, Megan, Kyle, and I put together our Top and Bottom 10 shows for the year 2011. This year, we decided to do that once again, and this time, we suckered asked JJ to do it with us. There was some great stuff on, but there were also some…lemons, so for this post, let’s take a look back at 2012 and see what we loved the most. And as always, thank you to everyone who has commented, emailed in, entered contests, and helped spread the word about the site. We appreciate each and every one of you! Without you, there would be no site. We hope you had a great holiday season and have a terrific new year!

Top 10

Jenny's Choice: Raising Hope

There were so many great episodes, but the biggest news at the end of last season and beginning of this season was Jimmy growing a pair and admitting to Sabrina how he felt, and then the two of them began a relationship. Now, mid-way through the season, they, along with not-so-baby Hope, are turning into a real family. It's been great to see the evolution of that relationship while still enjoying all the great antics of the rest of the Chance family.
Megan's Choice: MasterChef
This may seem like a strange choice, but this season had me enthralled from the moment it started. The contestants this season were all very interesting but also incredibly talented. I also enjoy seeing a softer side of Gordon Ramsay, as you can really see the love he has for each contestant. It would be amazing if one season, we could see the contestants on Hell's Kitchen against the contestants on MasterChef. For the most part, I'd place my money on the MasterChef people 9 out of 10 times.
Kyle's Choice: Emily Owens, M.D.
This year, a few canceled shows made my list—which is a shame, as it means we won't be getting more episodes. Emily Owens, M.D. is/was a charming, light series that falls somewhere in between Scrubs and Grey's Anatomy on the medical TV show spectrum. I really enjoyed its unique blend of comedy and drama and found the characters to be a lot of fun. I thought it used the voice-over well to add another level of humor.
JJ's Choice: Revolution
revolutionsmallI had promised myself not to start any new hour-long shows this season because too many tend to get canceled, and I don't have the time for it. But I couldn't pass on Revolution with all the attention it was getting. I caught up in one weekend around episode 7, and I was hooked from the moment I started. The premise is interesting and current, the visuals are stunning, and the cast is good. And I love how they are not afraid to kill people...which keeps the suspense up. I'm very curious to see the second half of the season. The show is tenth on my list because it could go either way next year.
