As 2009 winds down, we’re asking folks at the office to share their favorites of the year — in television, music, movies, games, and anything else we think of. We’ll kick it off with television. Among the favorites this year were Battlestar Galactica, 30 Rock, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Mad Men, and Dexter.
Here’s the rundown. Share with us your favorite shows of the year — whether you’re watching them on broadcast TV, DVR, DVD, Blu Ray or Betamax.
