So sublime, hand me a cigarette and a towel

It’s that time of the year in which everybody writes best-of-the-year lists, all I have to say this year is this, paraphrasing Matt Zoller Seitz:

“Other series were more comprehensible, and nearly all were less gore-soaked, but none was as consistently innovative and sublime … This visionary drama evoked German Expressionist cinema, glossy-pretentious art-house pictures … super-sexy fan fiction, and even experimental film. … The climactic showdown … was the most orgiastic display of choreography, music, lighting, and gore … [its creator] might as well have reached through the screen and handed viewers a cigarette and a towel.”

Guess what he’s talking about.
