Who'd think it? There's an excess of good TV out there this season, and thats even without taking cable into consideration. I'm trying to avoid being devoured whole, so I'm focusing in mainly on four shows.
LOST: Abrams is a crazy bastard, and sure knows how to write TV, though in truth LOST is more of a film serial. Its as if Gilligan's Island was a modern drama, and moreover, a good show. (Sorry Bob Denver; the show that made you a cherished icon was a piece of shit whose only redeeming value was Ginger and Mary-Ann)
Kitchen Confidential and Arrested Development: Actual quality in situation comedy!!!
Boston Legal: Brilliantly shot, paced, and styled courtroom show that accomplishes the impossible: It makes William Shatner a good actor, as opposed to an awesomely bad one. Oddly enough, it reminds me of an anime called Samurai Champloo, but that is neither here nor there.
Also, I need to get my hands on the Firefly dvds before I go to see Serenity, but once again that doesn't bear any pertinence. Nor does any of this. Why am I talking about TV shows? I'm avoiding the subject, that's why.
