TV 2013: There Will Be Blood

I waited until Homeland was concluded to post this, because I had a hunch I'd have to hold the phone - and lo and behold, I was right. This season's unrepentant brutality is all coincidence as far as I can tell, unless there was a bowl of Kool-Aid somewhere I wasn't aware of that all the TV writers of the past season drank out of. But I still felt the need to give 2013 its "Holy Shit" due, because it deserves it. I mean, let's look at the score card:


Spartacus: War of the Damned -
Spoiler:
Spartacus, Crixus, Naevia, Gannicus and pretty much everyone else who mattered except Agron. Long live Agron!


Game of Thrones -
Spoiler:
Robb Stark, Catelyn


The Walking Dead -
Spoiler:
Hershel, Governor


Sons of Anarchy -
Spoiler:
Clay, Tara


Dexter -
Spoiler:
Deb... though I realize the shittiness of the finale dampens this one's effect more than it should have. Shame.


Breaking Bad -
Spoiler:
Walt, Hank


Boardwalk Empire -
Spoiler:
Richard


Person of Interest -
Spoiler:
Carter


Homeland -
Spoiler:
Brody



And that's not including the shows I DIDN'T watch this year, or several other beloved side characters from BrBa, Boardwalk and Thrones that I didn't mention --

Spoiler:
Andrea and Gomie, Nucky's man Eddie, Lord Commander Mormont


--or the sheer amount of headshots on Sons of Anarchy that HAD to supplant The Departed in the Headshot Hall of Fame. Even shows you wouldn't expect got in on the action (re: PoI) and decided to briefly grow some balls.

Anyway, what do you all think? 2013 the most gut-punching season of TV of all time, or... is it just me?
