Progressive Pulse Blog, a blog about politics, TV, Travel, Fashion, Music and green living has come out with “Jim’s Best of Television 2009″. Although, they picked Breaking Bad, (Stephen Moyer’s favorite show) as the Best Drama of 2009, look who made the Runner Up!
Congratulations once again, to True Blood!
Here’s what they had to say:
Best Drama: Breaking Bad (AMC) While Mad Men had a great season and earned more ink across the board, that ‘other AMC drama’ about everyman Walter White falling deeper and deeper into the world of cooking and dealing crystal meth was always at the top of its game. The story threads through season two took more twists and turns without ever losing its way as Walter’s secret professional life and his personal life continued to dangerously cross and audiences could only sit back and watch in horror and glee. Kudos to cast members Bryan Cranston (who has now won two-Emmys for his role) and Aaron Paul for never playing the same note in their portrayals of Walter and put-through-the-wringer Jesse and, of course, to show creator Vince Gilligan who steered this ship to greatness.
* Runner Up: True Blood (HBO) No other show created more talk around the water cooler and took the craziest, out-of-this-world stories and miraculously made them work. In its second season, the Alan Ball-created show is much more than just a vampire show and, instead, created characters to care about (Lafayette’s torture), cheer for (go Sookie & Eric!) and loathe in a good way (MaryAnn) as well as be that show that knows how to tell a story engagingly and effectively. Oh, and could there be a better looking group of men in one place? Nelsan Ellis, Alexander Skarsgard, Ryan Kwanten, Sam Trammel, Stephen Moyer and (hubba hubba) Mehcad Brooks. One mistake that could be rectified in this anything-goes world – killing off Godric (Allan Hyde), whose death was so surprisingly emotional and effective that it’s a shame we won’t see more of him…or will we?
