True Blood Among Best of 2011 Dramas by NPR’s Fresh AirFresh Air’s TV critic David Bianculli liked so many shows this year that he says he couldn’t pick just 10 favorites. Instead, he split his favorites into several lists, including best documentaries and best scripted comedies/dramas. He has chosen our favorite vampire drama, True Blood as one of the best of 2011 in the best scripted comedies/drama category.

There is more good television on a weekly basis than there has ever been,” Bianculli says. “I am absolutely certain of it.”

In the best scripted comedies/dramas, True Blood was on the list at #10. and below is the f list:

1. Breaking Bad (AMC)
2. Homeland (Showtime)
3. The Good Wife (CBS)
4. Modern Family (ABC)
5. Justified (FX)
6. Dexter (Showtime)
7. American Horror Story (FX)
8. Curb Your Enthusiasm (HBO)
9. Louie (FX)
10. True Blood (HBO) The HBO vampire series created by Alan Ball is a soap opera, pure and simple, said Bianculli in a review that aired originally on June 9, 2010. “Or more accurately, it’s a soap opera, impure and complicated.” The show’s constant plot twists — and the regular introduction of new characters — keep Bianculli hooked. And “for a safe, long-term investment in pop culture’s fascination with the paranormal, I say take your money and let it ride on vampires,” he said last May. “They’re undead in more ways than one — every generation, they always seem to earn a brand new life.”
