Best of 2012: Top 100 Episodes of 2012 (70-61)
This is the final TV countdown, I swear! I’m counting down my Top 100 episodes of the year. It wasn’t that hard to narrow down the choices but it was difficult to put them in a sensible order. There is a slight overlap between this list and the top TV moments one, so I won’t be doing in-depth write-ups for each episode. I just gave basic information about the airdate, writers and directors. Plus I added a Best Scene category just to mix it up a bit. I hope you enjoy!
