The A.V. Club names Sundance Channel original series as best TV of 2013

Counting down the best TV of the year, The A.V. Club’s Scott Von Doviak, Carrie Raisler and Genevieve Valentine singled out Sundance Channel for “three boundary-pushing series.”

TOP OF THE LAKE, RECTIFY, and THE RETURNED were included among “the shows that got us talking the most over the past 12 months.”

“It’s rare to see a TV channel suddenly unleash an onslaught of great scripted programming, but Sundance did just that in 2013,” The A.V.
