Did OTH make it?
If we’ve accepted, years later, that the world will never see another Sopranos, another Sex and the City, another LOST—hell, not even another Entourage—the TV landmarks of 2012 are the shows that stopped the focus on the past. When the brilliant dangers of Homeland arrived to shore, American Horror Story twisted fiction on its head, and Girls became twee-ly epic in all its polarizing mediocrity, they spearheaded a league of new series that took watercooler debate and discussion back to the main stage, making us fall in love with the small screen all over again. Even if the freshmen had to rival the brutal trials of Breaking Bad and the long-awaited return of Donald Draper’s Mad Men, they’re still responsible for forging new ground, reimaging and reinventing the ways we can be shocked, awed, challenged, gripped, enamored, and moved by television.
And yeah, cable may be responsible for the revival of must-see TV, but to count out critical wonder Modern Family, soap breakout Revenge, or The CW’s better-than-ever The Vampire Diaries would be a mistake. This year saw more reasons than ever to tune in, log on, watch live, record, stream, download, and get a season pass to all the incredible moments that jump off of the screen and into our lives. So enjoy our, um, very colorful list of the 50 greatest episodes for the class of 2011-2012. The television renaissance is alive and well. These are the moments that prove it.
