Best of 2013: Top 100 Episodes of 2013 (20-11)
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 was a lot of quality television and that made the list even more of a challenge to complete. I listed basic information about the episode along with the best scene from each one.
