Lost, Season 2.

Lost is a television show that doesn’t ignore new media, or work against it, but sits at the center of an entire constellation of media artifacts.

Alias, Seasons 4 and 5.

It wasn’t until ABC announced the show’s cancellation that the writers finally gave in and accepted the fact that “sense” was simply never going to be a part of their legacy in the way that dysfunctional families and bright red wigs would be.

Prison Break, Season 1.

Even if the producers underestimate their audience’s mental capacity, Prison Break remains one of the most watchable shows on the air.

Veronica Mars, Season 2.

Veronica Mars will have to give up on being considered perfect, and settle for being the best show on TV.

All hail the idiot box.

The burning question of the 2003-2004 TV season was this: “Does the world have room for two shows about young women who are visited by voices from a higher plane that tell them to help people?” The answer was “not so much.”

2006 Spring Premieres.

Spring filler makes me cranky.

Academy Awards Notes.

Thank goodness for beer and livebloggers; how did I ever manage to sit through award shows without them?

R.I.P. Arrested Development.

When watching TV is difficult, but worth it.

2006 Winter Premieres.

While the return of watchable television means I can spare myself the pain of Skating With Celebrities or Get This Party Started, it comes too late to save me from most of the new shows the networks have rolled out this winter.
