    What is wrong with the first half of 2010?  Are you just tired?  (Am I the tired one?)

    We’re both tired. The eligibilty should start in summer of 2009, which equates to five seasons.

    But 2009 was part of the last decade.  My eligibility period will be 2010 to 2014 because that constitutes the first half of the decade.  Since this thread is a few months early, mine will also operate under the assumption that nothing from this fall would make my list, which is not too much of a leap.  I am tempted to just list ten, but I look better with twenty because I get to recognize more.

    1. Breaking Bad season 5B
    2. Breaking Bad season 5A
    3. Sherlock season 2
    4. Mad Men season 5
    5. Mad Men season 4
    6. Dexter season 7
    7. Breaking Bad season 4
    8. Orphan Black season 1
    9. 24 season 8
    10. Lost season 6
    11. Hannibal season 1
    12. House of Cards season 2
    13. Orange is the New Black season 1
    14. Game of Thrones season 1
    15. Terriers season 1
    16. Downton Abbey season 1
    17. Breaking Bad season 3
    18. Game of Thrones season 2
    19. Homeland season 1
    20. True Detective season 1

    1. Breaking Bad (season four)
    2. Breaking Bad (season 5.2)
    3. Game of Thrones (season four)
    4. Fargo (season one)
    5. Terriers (season one)
    6. Shameless (season four)
    7. Homeland (season one)
    8. Orange Is the New Black (season one or two)
    9. Mad Men (season four)
    10. Downton Abbey (season one)

    It made me sad when I found out In Treatment (S2) missed the eligibility window by a month. My ordering of the BB seasons seems to change every few weeks, and I should probably make room for another season from the show, but I’d rather construct a more diverse list.

    I’m thinking about the first five years/seasons of Emmy eligibility this decade.

    The final season of Southland is the only one I feel was truly close to great. The final seasons of both Southland and In Treatment just missed my list.

    Yeah, which is why it’s not eligible is this “poll”.

    I will also just do all of 2010-2014. Nothing else is likely to break in anyway and it’s more accurate to what a decade is (I try not to care at all what the Emmys do when making my personal lists).

    1. Mad Men: Season 4
    2. Game of Thrones: Season 1
    3. Orange is the New Black: Season 2
    4. The Americans: Season 2
    5. Justified: Season 2
    6. Breaking Bad: Season 4
    7. True Detective: Season 1
    8. Terriers: Season 1
    9. Hannibal: Season 2
    10. Breaking Bad: Season 3
    11. Mad Men: Season 5
    12. Boardwalk Empire: Season 4
    13. Breaking Bad: Season 5
    14. Friday Night Lights: Season 5
    15. Downton Abbey: Season 1
    16. Sherlock: Season 2
    17. Rectify: Season 2
    18. Boardwalk Empire: Season 2
    19. Treme: Season 3
    20. Game of Thrones: Season 4

    If Rectify S2 is null, sub in S1 at #20.

    It just makes sense to me when rankings seasons to work it around Emmy eligibility considering many shows were in the middle of their seasons at the beginning of 2010, and many shows will be in the middle of their seasons at the end of 2014. Also, it is an Emmy board.
