Bad is Still Good

Last year at this time I shared my favorite television shows. Breaking Bad topped my list of dramas in the spring of 2009 and The Office was my favorite comedy. Now a year later have my picks changed?

No and yes.

Breaking Bad, currently in its third season on AMC, is still my choice for best drama. The characters, the tension, the comedy, the drama, the acting, the writing--everything with that show is crazy good. If you haven't been watching, check out seasons one and two on DVD.

My favorite comedy has changed. The new champion is Modern Family (ABC, Wednesday night). Absolutely hilarious. The show follows the lives of three different families that, despite being related, are very different from each other. The talented ensemble cast produces continual laughs regardless of which storyline is being featured.

Honorable mention: Glee. Sue Sylvester never fails to crack me up. Outstanding.
