*Que The Wrap Up Music: Best TV Shows Of 2014 (Drama)

Yup, it's that time of year again. It's time to count down the best things. We not even going to talk about the worst.I want you to take it, burn it and bag it. Let the trash man have it.  Let's leave that in the past. Let's talk about the best shows of 2014.

 Last year, I talked about the best seven shows.This year we have a bigger list. So many shows brought about the ruckus this year. It's kinda like they read my old list and step the game up. We have some shows that stay on the list and some new shows that came out this year. I put them into two sections. Enjoy and tell me your favorites. Later today the comedy will be out.   

 1. How To Get Away With Murder (ABC)
How to Get Away with Murder follows the personal and professional life of Annalise Keating, a criminal law professor at the fictional Middleton University in Philadelphia, one of the most prestigious Law Schools in America. A criminal defense lawyer, Kinda like Virk Personal Injury Lawyers. Only for crime. Annalise selects a group of her best students from her university class to work at her firm. They are Connor Walsh, Michaela Pratt, Asher Millstone, Laurel Castillo and Wes Gibbins. In her personal life, Annalise lives with her husband, Sam Keating; but she also has a secret relationship with Nate Lahey, a local Philadelphia detective.

This show had me on the edge of my seat from the start, I had no clue what was going on. It's started with the murder and kept it the center of the show to the end. It kept us guessing about who the killer may be. Around the middle I started to have a idea. Then when it happen, I kept thinking that maybe they should get a carpet cleaner. If they do, they should check out the one I was reading about earlier. Praise Carpet Care. Looks like they do a great job.Floors look so clean. Micheal doesn't have to sweat that tho. Seeing that he,well, I don't want to ruin the ending for you......

 2.True Detective (HBO)
True Detective uses multiple timelines to trace two Louisiana State Police Criminal Investigations Division homicide detectives' hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana across seventeen years.

Talking about a ending that I didn't see coming. This one is so left field. The crazies thing I have ever seen. This one I had no clue about the killer. Not even one and I liked it like that.

 3.The Walking Dead (AMC)
Based on the comic book series of the same name, The Walking Dead tells the story of a small group of survivors living in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse. The first season takes place in the Atlanta metropolitan area, and the second through fourth seasons are set in the surrounding countryside of northern Georgia. Survivors search for a safe haven away from the shuffling hordes of predatory "walkers" or "biters" – as zombies are called – that eat any living thing they catch, and whose bite is quickly lethal to humans. The plot focuses primarily on the dilemmas the group faces as they struggle to maintain their humanity during the day-to-day challenges of surviving in a chaotic world full of zombie hordes and hostile human survivors.

 The last season on TWD was kinda boring. They had some moments when we all went "OMG" and just lost our shit. Then it was a span of about five episodes when it just was like a bunch of talking. The season that started this year, it's going for the kill and making up for last year. It started with a bang. Hey, hipsters, how that knife taste? Rick Rimes keeps his promises. 

 4. The Newsroom (HBO)
The series chronicles the behind-the-scenes events at the fictional Atlantis Cable News (ACN) channel. It features an ensemble cast including Jeff Daniels as anchor Will McAvoy, who, together with his staff, sets out to put on a news show "in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles and their own personal entanglements

This is the show that taps into my nerd side. If you watch this one, you're smart. 

5. Halt And Catch Fire (AMC)
 The series is set in the Silicon Prairie of Texas in 1983 and depicts a fictionalized insider's view of the personal computer revolution. The show's title refers to the machine code instruction Halt and Catch Fire, which would cause the computer's central processing unit to cease functioning

I loved this show. It's just saying about shows about the start of something that just pulls me in. I am a big lover of computers. And this show gives me that fix that I need. It will have you watching to the end.

6.House Of Cards (Netflix)
 Set in present-day Washington, D.C., House of Cards is the story of Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey), a Democrat from South Carolina's 5th congressional district and House majority whip who, after being passed over for appointment as Secretary of State, initiates an elaborate plan to get himself into a position of power. His loyal wife, Claire Underwood (Robin Wright), assists him in this endeavor. The series is primarily about ruthless pragmatism, manipulation, power, and doing bad things for the greater good

Neflix have been showing the world that it can give you great TV. I can't wait for them to do a movie.Not a House Of Cards one. Just any movie. Anyways. This season had the saddest moment in the history of TV. When Frank Underwood told the rib man, thay can't be friends anymore. 

 7. Suits (USA)
 Suits is a USA Network drama created by Aaron Korsh that stars Patrick J. Adams as Michael "Mike" Ross and Gabriel Macht as Harvey Specter. The series is set at Pearson Hardman, a fictional law firm in New York City. Mike, once a college scholarship recipient and on his way to becoming a law student at Harvard University, was kicked out of college for selling the answers to a math test he had memorized, ruining his chances of attending law school. Mike instead makes a living as a bicycle messenger, and is convinced by his friend, Trevor, to take part in a marijuana deal. The deal happens to be a sting operation which Mike astutely discovers and narrowly avoids, instead stumbling into a job interview with Harvey, a lawyer at Pearson Hardman and arguably the "best closer in New York City". Recently made senior partner, Harvey must hire a Harvard-educated lawyer as an associate, as per firm policy. Using his eidetic memory and legal knowledge, Mike proves to Harvey he is undoubtedly the best candidate and is consequently hired, despite neither receiving a college degree nor attending Harvard. The series focuses on Mike and Harvey as they try cases for the firm while maintaining Mike's secret.

So much shit went down in this season, left and right. They kept the action coming.

 8. Game Of Thrones (HBO)
 Game of Thrones roughly follows the three storylines of A Song of Ice and Fire. Set in the fictional Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, the series chronicles the violent dynastic struggles among the realm's noble families for control of the Iron Throne. As the series opens, additional threats emerge in the icy North and in the eastern continent of Essos.

 So much pilot in this season. Seeing like nobody was able to keep clothes on this time around. Men and women. I'm just glad the Hound didn't get naked. That would have been ugly. 

9.Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family)
 Set in the fictional town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, the series follows the lives of four girls, Aria Montgomery, Hanna Marin, Emily Fields, and Spencer Hastings, whose clique falls apart after the disappearance of their leader, Alison DiLaurentis. One year later, the estranged friends are reunited as they begin receiving messages from a mysterious figure named "A", who threatens to expose their deepest secrets, including ones they thought only Alison knew. At first, they think it's Alison herself, but after her body is found, the girls realize that someone else is planning on ruining their perfect lives.

Pretty Little Liars took us everywhere but up. You always think you know what's about to happen, boy did we have no idea at all.

10. Nashville (ABC)
In the first episodes the series focus on the rivalry of Rayna Jaymes and Juliette Barnes. Rayna Jaymes is the established "Queen of Country" music. However, her latest album is not selling well and her tour is playing to half empty venues. Her record label suggests that she open for Juliette Barnes, the young and sexy best selling singer of bubble gum country-pop. However, Juliette, seeing Rayna as privileged, purposefully alienates her. Rayna, who dislikes Juliette's style of music, rejects a joint tour out of hand. The two women come into conflict as each tries to get guitarist Deacon Claybourne, Rayna's bandmate and former lover, to sign on to their tour. Rayna's life is further complicated when her estranged father, millionaire businessman Lamar Wyatt, convinces her husband, Teddy Conrad, to run for Mayor of Nashville.

For later episodes the series follows the lives of country music musicians, headed by three female leads: country superstar Rayna Jaymes, rising problematic star Juliette Barnes, and newcomer singer-songwriter Scarlett O'Connor.

I don't like Luke. He comes off as a asshole. A jealous asshole at that. She need to be with Decon, that's who everybody wants to see Rayna with. Give us what we want. 

 11. Mad Men (AMC)
 Mad Men is set in the 1960s, initially at the fictional Sterling Cooper advertising agency on Madison Avenue in New York City, and later at the newly created firm, Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (later Sterling Cooper & Partners), located nearby in the Time-Life Building, at 1271 Sixth Avenue. According to the show's pilot, the phrase "Mad men" was a slang term coined in the 1950s by advertisers working on Madison Avenue to refer to themselves, a claim that has since been disputed. The focal point of the series is Don Draper (Jon Hamm), initially the talented creative director at Sterling Cooper and later a founding partner at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, and the people in his life both in and out of the office. The plot focuses on the business of the agencies as well as the personal lives of the characters, regularly depicting the changing moods and social mores of the United States across the 1960s, starting Season 1 in March 1960 and moving through 1969 by Season 7.

This post, right here pretty much sums up the season for me.
