1.Breaking Bad: One of the finest television dramas ever, delivers its finest season ever. All the shows on this list had story-telling that at time made me gasp for breath, but none more than “Breaking Bad. “ Even the finale was pitch perfect.

2. Sons of Anarchy: No surprise that “Sons” creator Kurt Sutter earned his bona fides on that other brilliant over-the-top addicting mess. “The Shield.” Jimmy Smits just take the Emmy now for best-supporting actor.

3. Mad Men: It’s all in vogue to put a hate on Don Draper and crew, but “Mad Men “in its penultimate season is a well-wrought, surprising and unsettling as it has been since the beginning.

4.Boardwalk Empire: Season Four was as heart-wrenching, as “Boardwalk’s” preceding ones, building out on this epic narrative, about race, class, violence and power in Prohibition America.

5. Justified: Inspired by a short story by Elmore Leonard who passed away this year, “Justified,” which returns next month on FX for its fourth year, embodies the amazing dialog and humor that made the late crime novelist a giant of the genre.

6. Homeland: So many great scenes and plot twists that hit so many hot buttons on everything from the war on terror to the nature of love and family, “Homeland’s “ lapses into “24” territory of improbability can be forgiven.

7. Scandal: So over-the-top, especially for a broadcast network series, “Scandal” could easily make a best comedy list, “Scandal” is “West Wing,” by way of “Sex and the City.” What’s scary is that co-creator Judy Smith worked in the first Bush White House aide and is high-profile D.C, fixer. One episode in its first season even predicted Edward Snowden and the NSA scandal.

Honerable Mentions: Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, and “American Horror Story: Coven
