Bi-Monthly Power Rankings- Top Ten
Although it has been three months since the last installment of The Quiet Pool Perspective Power Rankings, they will keep the Bi-Monthly moniker, because I am simply shifting everything back one month. August, October, December, February, April, and June works better anyway. There's that, and there's the fact that I was way too busy moving and starting a new job to post anything at the start of July. I still don't have time to say a lot, but I do have some new rankings for y'all so take a look...
Rank. Show (Last Time, Highest Ranking) green=moving up, red=moving down
10. Fringe (10, 10) Fridays on FOX
They get one final season to wrap things up in a pretty little bow. I have no doubt that half the viewers will love the ending, and half will hate it.
9. Sons of Anarchy (9, 3) Tuesdays on FX
Last season was an improvement on season three's hiccup, but not a huge one. It seems they may never return to the greatness of season two.
8. Curb Your Enthusiasm (5, 1) Sundays on HBO
The former number one takes a big dip after the most recent lackluster season had some time to settle in. With no new season in the near future, it should stay here for a while.
7. Game of Thrones (4, 2) Sundays on HBO
There was just a lot of clunky story telling in season two. They need to cut characters and storylines, or add episodes. There was much too much glancing over arcs.
6. Happy Endings (8, 6) Tuesdays on ABC
The best comedy you aren't watching. The male actors are hilarious but that's to be expected. It's the fact that there are three funny ladies in the main cast that sets it apart from the rest.
5. It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia (7, 5) Thursdays on FX
It's going to be tough to compete with its most recent season, but I have a feeling these guys are just in a bit of a zone. How will they make Mac being skinny again funny?
4. Breaking Bad (6, 2) Sundays on AMC
The start to this season has probably been the best ever. With a ton of Walt/Jesse action, we have been lucky. Hopefully they can continue the excitement throughout the eight eps.
3. Homeland (3, 3) Sundays on Showtime
I have the season two premiered queued up on my computer, and I couldn't be more excited about it. Bring on the suspense!
2. Community (2, 2) Thursdays on NBC
It's probably going to go downhill fast without Dan Harmon at the helm, but with the cast that they have, I have no doubt it will still be funny.
1. Justified (1, 1) Tuesdays on FX
It's been a while now since Justified hasn't been the best show on television. Somewhere in the middle of season two Justified became the gold standard.
