My Take Too: Nicole’s Take on the Top 10 of 2010
Welcome to Day 1 of the year in review – here’s a look back at Nicole’s 10 Favorites from 2010. Do you agree?
6. The Walking Dead – For the first mainstream show about zombies ruling the earth, I think it is good. They definitely need to punch it up in parts and bleed the zombies into scenes without making it so choppy. However, it ended on a good note. Sucks that the creator thinks he can do it alone next season. I guess the proof is in the writing.
5. Cougar Town – A funny cast that all thoroughly get their characters and their character’s arc. Yes, sometimes the jokes fall flat or seem juvenile, but I think Cougar Town is growing in really finding its place and will definitely stick around for a least a few more seasons.
4. Grey’s Anatomy – For years, Grey’s was my favorite show, and after 7 seasons on the air, it remains in my top five. I wasn’t too happy to see so many characters depart from what we know of them, but am excited to see how Shonda brings it all back together. She is a writing genius and television anomaly, so I wouldn’t dare count her out. I’m sure this season is going out with an even bigger bang than last season.
3. The Good Wife – Alicia is a strong, independent woman who is the ultimate devoted and dedicated wife. She is classy, smart, and sharp. I am reminded of Elizabeth Edwards and I am sure the writers channeled what they know of Elizabeth to inspire their writing.
2. Modern Family – A funny, hilarious family of misfits that all blend together wonderfully. This season continues with the characters presenting a magical mix of laughs and life lessons. Cameron is my favorite character; from his facial expressions to his little quirks. The episodes where they rely too much on racial slapstick humor are my least favorite, and I wish I could recall ever seeing a black person on the show who wasn’t an extra, but outside that, I can’t deny how funny it is.
1. Community – No other show compares to Community in creativity, originality, level of acting, and hilarity. Each episode is the culmination of a carefully thought out dialogue with a mix of pure humor. It may not have the high ratings, but that’s because the writers refuse to churn out regurgitated, outdated jokes.
