SideReel's Best and Worst Series of 2013

In putting together our year end lists, the SideReel editors noticed that while there was general agreement on the top shows of 2013 (Breaking Bad and Orange is the New Black were pretty standard, though we admit to being surprised that Game of Thrones only made one person's top 5, especially considering the entire office is obsessed with it), our worst shows of 2013 lists were quite diverse. A bunch of us chose a new series that was a major disappointment (Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), some picked oh-god-please-put-this-out-of-its-misery-if-you-haven't-already legacy series (How I Met Your MotherThe Office), and, well, a few downright horrible shows to which we subjected ourselves surfaced as well (DadsDance MomsShahs of Sunset). Check out the full lists below, and let us know what you think we got right — and what we missed.
