If you felt that the television season that just ended pushed the envelope in the gore department, you aren't alone. We created this slideshow of twenty grisly deaths both as a fitting eulogy to our Best of TV week and as a way to do our part in documenting the crazy, grody stuff they can get away with showing on television nowadays so that scientists in the future will be able to understand how awesome/not awesome we were circa 2012-13. While all twenty screen-grabs could easily have come from Spartacus: War of the Damned, or a mix of comparatively serener bloodbaths True Blood and The Walking Dead, we felt that it was necessary to take a broader snapshot, one that allowed us to include Bones. Because seriously, Bones is ridiculous. On to the gore!BEGIN SLIDESHOW
