Top 20 New Shows of 2010: #6

My annual TV Awards, the AFT Television Awards, are given out during the summer. But this year, during both the spring and the fall, produced many impressive new television series. As 2010 closes out and 2011 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

#6: Treme

HBO continues to demonstrate its excellence in creating absorbing dramatic television with this multi-character series about New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Like many of the now-classic shows that came before it, one episode of this series feels like an entire movie. Excellent writing and top-notch turns from John Goodman and Kim Dickens contribute to the overall quality of the show, which ended on a high note with a moving season one finale.

I'll say it again: you need to watch David Simon's other series "The Wire". It truly blows every other show out of the water.

Pity I only got HBO for 3 months as part of this new cable deal. Otherwise, I might be interested in catching up on this one. As it is, I'll probably wind up watching the show entirely on DVD a few years down the road.
