Best Individual Seasons of Television

Recommended Posts

»Ocelot    2319
I think this is a more interesting way of looking at TV shows -- there are plenty of series that have both awful seasons and great seasons, so examining their peaks and why they worked is more compelling, I think. I'll list mine then elaborate on them later if people are curious:

The Wire: Season 3
The Wire: Season 4
Sherlock: Season 1
Sherlock: Season 2
Breaking Bad: Season 2
Seinfeld: Season 4
Louie: Season 3
Friday Night Lights: Season 1
LOST: Season 1
Moral Orel: Season 3
Arrested Development: Season 2
Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 7

Prison Break S01 and maybe S02 should play a big part in this discussion

I personally find Sherlock way too inconsistent and I've been a fan of it since day 1. Upon a rewatch:
S01E01 - amazing
S01E02 - different writer, it showed,
S01E03 - terribly repetitive until last 1/2 hour, excellent cliff hanger

S02E01 - amazing phenomenal
S02E02 - okay, predictablish
S02E03 - great... but really brings into question plausibility in a lot of the conclusions

Don't get me wrong, still one of my favorite shows but when I rewatched it, I realised a few flaws.

If cartoons are included, Home Movies season 3. was pretty much one of the best series in animation, the episode Shore Leave got awards n stuff. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qD7WcU1TNS8[/media]

then series 4 was poor and the show got scrapped :S
Avatar : the last airbender Book 2: Earth
BrBa series 2 was the best, with 2nd half of series 4 the next best.

Firefly, and the eps 1 & 2 prob me favourite.

Dexter Series 1 - everything after is a bit meh.
then perhaps more niche stuff like flight of the conchords, studio 60 on the sunset strip,

Season 1 of Twin Peaks is absolutely amazing. Buffy season 3 definitely shines above the rest as far as plot hook, villain, and individual episodes. Similarly, the final season of Angel (6...8?) perfected the Whedon formula to new heights, and is probably the greatest overall season of either show.

Season's 3 and 4 are going to be the greatest things in Television. If you thought the ending of season 1 was shocking you have seen NOTHING compared to what the awesome dramatic endings of those seasons are going to be.

Um yeah, a whole bunch of Cersei, the Samwise Gamgee, Sansa Stark and the Ironborn, some of my least favourite characters. And the spawning of a whole new Who Killed Asmodean controversy. Yeah the big event was big, but Storm of Swords easily eclipses all the other books except maybe Dance with Dragons for me, and were just more dramatic and played out better.

I loved Heroes season 1 so much. All of that potential spoiled in the final episode of the season. :S
