Whether you subscribe to the idea of a "Second Golden Age" of television or not, there's no denying that 2013 was a great year for TV.  Outstanding, even, because for all of the trash there were so many treasures.  Hit the jump for the first batch of treasure: a look back at the best new series from this year (in no particular order, and miniseries are saved for another list), which are all worth binge-watching to catch up with in preparation for their second seasons in 2014, if you haven't indulged already. Honorable Mentions: Ray Donovan [Showtime], The Wrong Mans [Hulu], Moone Boy [Hulu], The Americans [FX] 10. Bates Motel  [A&E] Bates Motel deserves some love.  It's not probably going to make it into the upper echelons of the TV canon, but it's a creepy, strange and unexpectedly funny show that has found a way to give a wholly original take to the Psycho story.  Vera Farmiga also »
