As you can see Games of Thrones seem to be my favourite TV series of the year.Its the fantasy series for the adult.The rest of the TV series I seem to like this year are the new ones.A very good year for the new shows.
Favourite TV series of the year:
Game of Thrones
-The TVseries of the fantasy genre for the adults packed with a great cast,dragons and direwolf.Walking Dead
-A zombie Apocalypse where it focuses on how human changes internally and zombies as their backdrop.
-Another friendship based TV series.The pilot was Okay but as the series goes on,it get better and better.I love the portrayal of all six main characters especially Max the best portrayal of a gay character in television history(unlike the usual flamboyant depictions of gay,Max is a masculine,normal gay guy) and the control freak sister Jane and the desperate for marriage Penny.Terra Nova
-Although it didn't fulfil my expectation I had for it,I start liking it as the series progresses.Both Steven Lang and Jason O'Mara performances was one of plus of Terra Nova.
-A daughter's revenge to avenge for her father death packed with brilliant performance by Madeliene Stowe and Emily VanCampRoyal Pains
-A very original concept about concierge medicine infused with comedyHow I Met Your Mother
-One of the funny sitcom that always makes you laugh.I love Barney and Lily but I think its time for us to meet the mother.Fringe
-It is so surprising that Fringe one of the best made TVseries and well acted still struggle to have viewersBeing Human US
Dominic West(The Hour,Appropriate Adult)
-Dominic West was so superb playing the serial killer Fred West in Appropriate Adult..Same last name,what a coincidence!Sean Bean(Games of Thrones)
Kate Winslet(Mildred Pierce)
-Kate Winslet in her first Emmy winning role playing the mother during the Great Depression trying to open a restaurant and at the same time trying to win the affection of her daughter who realises it and began to use her mother affection to her advantage.
Best TV Debut:
Emilia Clarke(Games Of Thrones)
Best Young Actor:
-Maisie Williams with her innocent big eyes charmed us throughout the series especially the scene where she watches he father being called a traitor and getting executed at the sept.Sophie Turner
-Sansa Stark one of the hate character of the Starks due to her ignorance and naive.However,Sophie Turner gave a convincing portrayal of the character especially the scene where she tries to push Prince Jofferey.
Favourite episode: Baelor & The Pointy End(Games of Thrones)
Hipster episode(Happy Endings)
Ned Stark execution scene(Games Of Thrones)
-They killed the freakin lead character!
Sophia becoming a walker(Walking Dead)
-Although I knew the directors would made Sophia turned into a walker as speaking of logic,how can a 8 year old survive by her own in that world without getting bitten.The surprising thing is,I never thought she would be walking out the barn at the end.
Daryl Dixon(Walking Dead)
-The most interesting character in the walking dead due to the fact that the audience doesn't really knows whether he is a good guy or a bad guy.Arya Stark(Games of Thrones)
-Many girls can relate to Arya Stark and I felt it was George R.R.Martin's way to show his feminist side through Arya by making her not to fall to the womanly roles given to her in Westeros.Santana Lopez(Glee)
Worst Actor: Cory Monteith(Glee)
-Cory playing the dumb jock,is equally terrible.
Favourite Music Video: Someone Like You, Adele
You and I,Lady Gaga
The One That Got Away,Katy Perry
