Top 13 New Shows of 2013: #9

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.

#9: Rectify

This six-episode Sundance Channel series aired over the course of just a few weeks, but it was extremely memorable in a short time. Aden Young was magnetic as a recently-released convict ostracized by his community for a suspected crime years earlier, but the show was all about its supporting players, especially his fiery sister Abigail Spencer. This was a thought-provoking, contemplative series that should prove just as powerful in season two.
