TV’s Most Mind-Bending Shows

By Robert Isenberg
Special to MSN TV

Everybody loves a good plot twist -- and these days more than ever. In our era of Christopher Nolan movies and J.J. Abrams TV shows, we have come to expect surprises that will flip our worlds upside down.

And these twists aren't petty little shockers, like traitorous friends, secret identities or siblings separated at birth. Nowadays, episodes can be so complex that even their most ardent fans have no idea what's going on. Yet when they're good, these series will take us through a labyrinth of amnesia, time travel, portal-hopping and otherworldly shenanigans. We have literally no idea what will happen next -- or what's happening now, for that matter.
