Top 13 New Shows of 2013: #1

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 a handful of impressive new television series. As 2013 closes out and 2014 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

#1: Banshee

This Cinemax series was just as awe-inspiring as it was violent, creating a cruel world in which Antony Starr’s criminal managed to assume a murdered sheriff’s identity and hide himself in a small town that was just as dangerous as the mobster from whom he was running. No show was as visceral and shocking as this one, and an early January return promises even more action and grittiness in season two.
