In no particular order, here are the shows you should have been watching in 2010:

The Good Wife (CBS)
Starring: Julianna Margulies, Christine Baranski, Josh Charles, Archie Panjabi and Chris Noth

Alicia: The plan. I get the romance. I need a plan.
Will: Not everything needs a plan.
Alicia: Everything that matters does. I have two kids that mean the world to me. I have the press. They're just waiting for a whiff of a new scandal. And I have a husband. So if you want to cut through all that noise, then show me a plan. Poetry is easy. It's the parent-teacher conferences that are hard.

The Big C (Showtime)
Starring: Laura Linney, Oliver Platt, John Benjamin Hickey, Phyllis Somerville, Idris Elba, Cynthia Nixon, Gabourey Sidibe

Marlene: Don’t screw up what you have left. Go places. Buy crap you want. Don’t be afraid. When it’s really your time to go, I’ll be waiting for you. But until then, live your life as hard as you can. That’s it. That’s all I wanted to say.

Community (NBC)
Starring: Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Gillian Jacobs, Alison Brie, Yvette Nicole Brown, Donald Glover, Chevy Chase

Jeff: Shirley, don't sue a stripper.
Shirley: Why not?
Jeff: She's a stripper: life sued her, and she lost.

Weeds (Showtime)
Starring: Mary-Louise Parker, Justin Kirk, Hunter Parrish

Shane: You’re not a bad influence because you’re a drug dealer. You’re a bad influence because you’re a bad drug dealer.

Damages (FX)
Starring: Glenn Close, Rose Byrne, Tate Donovan

Ellen: You did teach me one valuable lesson.
Patty: I’m glad.
Ellen: ‘Trust no one.’ Well, I don’t anymore, Patty. Least of all you.

Friday Night Lights (DirecTV, NBC)
Starring: Connie Britton, Kyle Chandler, Michael B. Jordan, Aimee Teegarden

Coach: “Thanks for setting up the barbecue and everything.  Thanks for all that you do.  Thanks for our two beautiful daughters. Thank you for doing the laundry.”

Honorary Mention: The LOST finale (ABC)

Because although I wasn't anything like a regular viewer of the show, it was Event Television.  So glad I did watch, because these 3 minutes 27 seconds gave me something to love about this show after dabbling with it since season one.

So Juliet & Sawyer, or Elizabeth Mitchell and Josh Holloway, I tip my hat to you.

What is Damages like? Do Glenn Close and the young girl have a fic-thing going on? Because clearly that's the only thing I care about :D

A+++++ list. I really have to go back to Community. I made it about six episodes in s1 and then said meh, but everything I see around Tumblarggggh makes me want to go back.

“Thanks for setting up the barbecue and everything. Thanks for all that you do. Thanks for our two beautiful daughters. Thank you for doing the laundry.”

Possibly the most perfect thing Coach has ever said? Maybe. (And awww, Grandma Saracen 4 lyfe.)

And ♥ ♥ ♥ honorable mention for suuuuure. Faces, soulmates, etc.
