TV Surveillance Podcast Episode 24 — The Best Television (and Voice Impressions) of 2011

It is that time again folks! The end of the year is upon us and that means it is time to look back on the highs, lows and WTFs in television from the past 12 months. There is a lot to reflect on in regard to television 2011. Charlie Sheen went crazy. Well, crazier. Comedy supposedly made a big comeback. We found out what The Event was, I think. Steve Carell and Michael Scott said goodbye and we were sad. The guys from Entourage also said goodbye, and we were less sad. AMC tried to break a Guinness Book World Record for number of stupid PR disasters by a cable network.

This year brought us a number of great new series such as HomelandHappy Endings and Game of Thronesand a slew of horribly awful ones such as The Paul Reiser ShowHow to Be a Gentleman and Charlie’s Angels.True Blood and Glee kept getting worse while Community and Justified kept getting better. 2011 was the year of Louis C.K., the year of sexposition and the year of The Killing. Over the next few weeks, I will be posting all sorts of lists, podcasts and pieces reflecting back on the year that was. So join me in saying farewell to what was a very compelling year in television. There will be so many lists.

As promised, Andy Daglas and Les Chappell are back on the podcast for another extended conversation about television in 2011. This time, we tackle the best series of the year. Thankfully, Les also does a dozen more fantastic impressions and we absolutely do not talk about him living in his mom’s basement for a few minutes. It started to almost-storm mid-way through, so there might be a few instances of wonky audio, but I think everything still works. Enjoy! As always, you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. I’d really appreciate it if you did.
