MTV’s New Hula Hoop

No doubt MTV feels good about itself right now, pleased with the kick-off to its year of anti-hate programming.


PopMatters - Television - Reviews - Making the Band

Yes, their fame is being 'handed' to them, but only if they commit to a whole lot of work. Is that really any worse than someone who gets to be a star because his brother needed a bass player?


Murder in Small Town X

The real problem is that 'Murder in Small Town X' can't decide how 'real' it wants to be.


Marcus Garvey: Look for Me in the Whirlwind

To capture such a 'whirlwind' would be impossible; but 'Marcus Garvey: Look for Me in the Whirlwind' provides a provocative introduction to this compelling, complex man.


PopMatters - Television - Reviews - Madigan Men

As unfair as it may seem, a wealthy, handsome single architect with a commitment to monogamy and an Irish accent simply would not have that much trouble getting a girlfriend. Hell, 'I'd' date him.


The Michael Richards Show

What's puzzling is why they didn't just call the thing 'Cosmo Kramer, P.I.' That's what audiences wanted, and that's essentially what the show turns out to be.


Malcolm in the Middle

In much the same way that the Conners of 'Roseanne' exploded the myth of the unified, dad-centered sitcom family, the Wilkersons are a unit in which the siblings really do try to kill each other and the parents maintain control through guerilla strategy rather than homespun aphorisms -- just like real families. Radical notion, that.


Law & Order: Criminal Intent

Because Goren's intellect and intuition never fail, Criminal Intent's narratives never consider the presumption of innocence as a legal (or dramatic) standard.


Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Part of the problem is that the 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit' writers haven't given Ice T much to do: he's Munch's Yes Man, and it doesn't become him.
