Louise’s Best of 2013
It’s been quite a year. Kimye had a baby, Miley twerked her way into pop culture history, and Sandra Bullock defied Gravity in the greatest space drama of recent history. Here’s my list of the best of 2013—including Chris Messina’s dance moves, Finnick Odair, and Robin Williams’ return to television. Keep in mind that this list consists of my personal favorites of the year. Cards on the table, I still haven’t seen Breaking Bad, so you won’t find it on this list. What you will find is a whole lot of fabulousness that you should definitely check out if you haven’t already. Here we go!

It may not have been a banner year in entertainment, but there were certainly some bright lights in an otherwise dim sea of mediocre remakes and The Big Bang Theory. Thank God for Beyoncé and the Hemsworth brothers. What were your highlights of 2013? Leave your “best of” in the comments section! Happy New Year!
