Box Office revenues for 2012′s released films are reported to be approaching near historic lows, and it could have been much worse had it not been for Batman and The Avengers raking in obscene amounts of money and ‘saving the day’ (ha). If you read any movie related blogs you’re sure to come across a bunch of reasons for the demise of “Hollywood.” Besides the fact that there seems to be a sequel or remake of a remake of an old movie coming out every week, I just think that the “movies” are suffering because TV has gotten really really good and more original and creative than film. (case in point, isn’t Saw 278 coming out this Halloween?)

Back in July, nominees for the 64th annual Primetime Emmys were announced and we happened to notice that the programs in the “Outstanding Drama Series” category all had great writing, acting and directing but some truly stunning homes as well. So to commemorate the shows we all love and the homes featured in them, we dedicated a week long series of blog posts to exploring some of the fantastic homes featured in the “Outstanding Drama Series” category.

To get you ready for the Emmy’s airing this Sunday, let’s take a quick look back at our “Outstanding Home in a Drama Series” posts:
