The 2014 Emmys: Improved Presentation, Same Old Confusion!

breaking-bad-banner

If there’s anything more confusing than a list of Emmy® winners, I’m not sure I know what it is. Even after some horrendous snubs (not just Tatiana Maslany…), there were still a lot of worthy nominees this year. The problem is that deserved wins by the consistently excellent Breaking Bad (for example) were cheapened by repeat wins by shows that were not as good as other nominees in their class (Modern Family, for example).

For every win for something new and amazing (Fargo), there was a win that made no sense at all (Kathy Bates over Allison Tolman? WTF?). And how does Louis C.K. win for comedy writing and lose comedy series to Modern Family, Academy? You just said that Louie had the best (ie: funniest) comedy writing!

Anyway, follow the jump for a complete list of Emmy winners and, quite possibly, a wee bit of commentary.

TV: Sheldon’s Favorite Fifteen – Plus 5!

It has been a remarkable year for television. More places to find scripted programming meant more quality programming – networks that were just beginning to dabble in scripted shows had to find or produce quality fare just to get noticed. As a result, we got shows like Rectify and The Returned. Networks, faced with dwindling ratings and top-notch cable shows took a few flyers and produced some pretty entertaining new shows (and some awful duds – but at least they were trying!).

Indeed, there were so many really entertaining shows that I just couldn’t limit my 2013 list to fifteen. So, follow the jump for my favorite shows of 2013 – plus some bottom feeders and disappointments.

Breaking Bad: The Complete Series

Somehow the entire Breaking Bad phenomena escaped me so I’m really looking forward to catching the Breaking Bad: The Complete Series Blu-ray. Sony Home Video has put together a pretty amazing sounding package that includes over 55 HOURs of extras and the set even comes with a digital copy of the full series.  That ain’t bad.  The full press release is after the break.
