The 20 Best TV GIFs That Defined 2012

This Saturday is the first night of Hanukkah, so you know what that means: it's time for you to scramble and find a cheap ass dollar store menorah if you're Jewish or completely ignore the holiday, outside of a casual listen to "The Hanukkah Song" on YouTube. Also, YEAR-END NOSTALGIA. God, remember how great February was? I mean, it was no April, but it was close.

We'll keep our "What Did The Firm Mean for 2012" trend pieces to a minimum, but it can be fun looking back at the past 12 months, if only to remember how badass Game of Thrones was. How badass? Very badass.

Anyway, as you may well know, we've been putting together GIFs of the Week features every Friday, then Saturday since June, and over the past eight months, we've compiled hundreds of continuous clips from Community, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Louie, Archer, and probably some other shows, too. In this post, we've selected 25 GIFs from (scripted) shows that aired in 2012 that we feel best define 2012. This isn't a list of the BEST shows, necessarily, but moments from throughout the year that we never want to forget. Like Fat Betty.
