    THE AMERICANS
    BREAKING BAD
    GAME OF THRONES
    THE GOOD WIFE
    HOUSE OF CARDS
    MAD MEN
    MASTERS OF SEX
    ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK

    Wow, the only *definite* comedy is Veep? Interesting.
     
    Scandal isn’t a usual suspect.

    Interesting list. Very happy that Homeland has been dropped, the decline is real. Also interesting that Modern Family finally dropped out after four years.

    Very exciting list!

    Love the inclusions of The Good Wife, Scandal, Orange is the New Black and (of course) Veep. 

    I hope that it’s telling that Modern Family is left off the list; perhaps this will finally be the year it loses Best Comedy, and I can hope it will be Veep that takes the title. It is still in production right now, so I assume it’s aiming for a late premiere again, right in the nomination period and a good reminder to voters of it’s buzz and quality.

    No qualms with this list at all. Would probably not have included House of Cards. Probably would have put Parks and Recreation or Justified in its place. All else is great. Any list that wouldn’t include Breaking Bad wouldn’t be worth reporting.

    Scandal’s a random pick. I’d kick Mad Men out too.

    Veep was the best comedy of the year. Also love the inclusion of The Americans, Scandal, The Good Wife, and Orange. I wouldn’t have put Mad Men or House of Cards there.

    More proof that this can’t be called a “golden age” for television. Maybe for drama, but definitely not for comedy.

    I’m loving the admiration for Veep here. It was far and away the best comedy in my eyes.

    With Breaking Bad over and Mad Men ending and The Sopranos and The Wire being long gone, not to mentioned most of the other great dramas of the past 15 years no longer airing, it may be time to say we’re out of the Golden Age of television.

    I wouldn’t be so pessimistic quite yet. I will wait one year after the conclusion of MM (so… 2016?) until I make that proclamation. Who knows? Perhaps FX or AMC (or even Netflix) strike gold with a few prestige dramas in the next few years.
