Top 13 New Shows of 2013: #10

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.

#10: Masters of Sex

Showtime’s latest offering was a bold and adventurous look at the 1960s and one doctor’s quest to make scientific breakthroughs in the understanding of human sexuality. Michael Sheen is a solid stoic researcher, but the true stars of the show were Lizzy Caplan as his ambitious assistant and Caitlin Fitzgerald as Libby, Bill’s long-ignored wife. The season ended on a less than satisfying note, but I imagine that year two will head in an innovative and intriguing direction.
