On December 27th of last year, we asked you guys what were your top 5 movies and TV shows of the year. About 15 of you guys responded and we're here today to reveal the winners. Users were asked to put in their top 5 favorite shows/movies from best to worst. After collecting the votes from each user, we tallied them based on a weighted system. Shows placed at the top of a list will receive the most points while shows placed at the bottom will receive less points. Here's what the weight of each place on the list had looked like.
With that out of the way, let's dig into what was the community's favorite TV show. TV this year was one of the best with a slew of varied television both entertaining and challenging. But it should come to no surprise that the community number favorite show was Breaking Bad. With 159 points on the weighted scale, it was the clear favorite. And it was no wonder that the series was able to accumulate that many points when it landed at first place on 6 different submitted lists. It's a fitting end for a series like this. Next, Game of Thrones comes in at a very distant second at 42 points. Though Game of Thrones did not place first on anyone's list, it did accumulate enough points from being on enough lists to get the second seed. Third, we have the NBC freshman series, Hannibal, which trails Game of Thrones by just 5 measly points. Hannibal as you may know, was featured on MrMazz's favorite 10 shows of 2013 and it is a stellar show. Next on the list is a show that has a close place in Callum's heart. That's right. Gravity Falls takes fourth place on this list 34 points. Callum should probably track down that other user and thank him for helping getting Gravity Falls on the list. Last but not least, the final spot on the community's top five TV shows of 2013 is a tie between Orange is the New Black and the Legend of Korra. With 29 points each, Team Avatar and the jailbirds take the final seed over the likes of Pretty Little Liars, Last Resort and The Venture Bros.
|1. Breaking Bad|
Did anyone not see this coming?
|2. Game of Thrones|
Game of Thrones. You either win or you get second place.
The series doesn't get Big Bang Theory ratings, but it's nice to see that it has found an audience on the site.
|4. Gravity Falls|
Callum's holy and unholy sacrifices have worked. Gravity Falls gets a place on the list.
|5. Orange Is the New Black|
Netflix scores another touchdown with this witty series about women in prison. No, it's not that KIND of prison movie you pervs.
Moving onto movies, we have a surprising winner. Placing first on 4 lists and taking in 96 points, Pacific Rim takes first place in the community's top 5 movies of 2013. Now that's something I couldn't even dream. But then again, giant robots beating giant monsters are pretty damn cool. In a close second place, Gravity sits comfortably with 83 points. It had just 2 users who placed it first on their list. The rest of the votes came from a spectrum of users who placed it in various places on their lists. Unweighted, Gravity would take the first place with 6 votes to Pacific Rim's 4. Next off is American Hustle with 54 points. After that, there is Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street with a pretty 41 points. Finally, the last spot goes to Before Midnight with 39 points.
|1. Pacific Rim|
You guys picked this over Gravity??! But everyone loves Gravity. GET OUT OF HERE!!!!
Good acting in spaaaace!
|3. American Hustle|
This is probably the movie that will win the most awards in this year's Oscars and yet I know nothing about it. MrMazz has a review on it. You should probably check it out.
|4. The Wolf of Wall Street|
Martin Scorsese makes another one, but is it a good one? Check out MrMazz's review on it.
|5. Before Midnight|
"Two lovers bicker, philosiphize, and romance over the course of one night in Greece." Sounds like a busy night.
