Top 10 TV Episodes of 2013 by James Poniewozik, Time magazine

1. Breaking Bad, Ozymandias (5x14): “The title of this episode comes from the Shelley poem about the self-aggrandizing statue of an ancient king, fallen to ruin in a desert. In the greatest hour of one of TV’s greatest dramas, Walter White’s dreams shatter into the red dust around him, as the violent forces he unleashes cost him his family and most of the drug fortune he sold his soul to cook up. Five seasons of lies and near-misses built to this powerful moment, as Walt sees his dreams of a happy ending vanishing in the rear-view mirror. Look on this work, ye mighty TV creators, and despair.”
