It's a place where lifelong alliances are formed and battle lines drawn, a place of both adversaries and loyal friends. Where romance sometimes rears its head, where duplicity can possibly get you everywhere, where hard-earned triumphs can be won and defeat can sting the most. It's... the workplace? Yes, the landscape of employment has long been a place of comedy and drama that movies and TV have often mined for entertainment both hilarious and scathing.

Arno from IMDb got together with Ray from Box Office Mojo and together they offer up this list of 20 titles that are worth keeping an eye out for in 2013. The one thing they can agree upon? A mutual fascination with Benedict Cumberbatch.
We may have reached the traditional television season's halfway point, but lots of new series haven't premiered yet.

Others will become guilty pleasures, while some may go as quickly and quietly as they arrive.
The shows listed here fall into all of these categories, and while I can't guarantee all (or any) of them will earn huge ratings or critical acclaim, I am intrigued enough by what I've seen of them to put them on my Watchlist for at least a few episodes.
