There's too much great television to watch. I can't keep up. I'll show you: Here's the AV Club's list of The top 30 shows on television this year. This list does not include shows like South Park or The Colbert Report or The Office, all of which have been pretty terrific over the last 12 months. I mean, South Park, one of the most influential and groundbreaking shows in television history, possibly had its best season ever this year. Not on the list.
Of those 30 shows, I am up-to-date—meaning I've seen every episode—with eight of them. I'm behind on three (Boardwalk Empire, Homeland, and Treme), and there are nine others (including a widely-praised season of Justified), I'd love to watch, but haven't even started.
