Scrubs

Although Scrubs' consistency is somehow comforting, it also runs the risk of monotony by giving audiences exactly they expect week after week.


Smallville

In Smallville, Clark's parents manage to convince him that he isn't from this planet -- just what every insecure high school freshman needs to hear.


Survivor 3

No longer merely a television show conceit, the idea of survival has now taken on a new and frightening immediacy to viewers.


Slayer

While its premise and execution are overtly derivative, Slayer works through an illuminating politics concerning U.S. military actions and local populations.


Sex and the City

Underneath its slinky-gown allure, 'Sex and the City' is starting to resemble a bare-assed 'Friends' sliding into the flabby ennui of a post-millennial 'thirtysomething'.


The Secret Life of Us

. . . provides an encouragingly fresh take on a genre that has been re-hashed numerous times.


The Sopranos

Punctuated by whip-smart, often salty humor, The Sopranos is also permeated by violence, uncertainty, and dread. By Season Six, Tony Soprano's fear seems realized.


The Howard Stern Show

Like the notoriously funny 'Mad Magazine', Stern holds nothing sacred; everything and everyone's susceptible to parody and verbal attack, which is a breath of fresh air at a time when the First Amendment seems in mortal danger.


The Sandra Bernhard Experience

Like her former gal-pal Madonna, Bernhard is now a 40-something working mom: just how 'hip' and 'edgy' she is in the world of Eminem and the Insane Clown Posse is open to debate.


The Simpsons

The truth is that a typical Simpsons episode today does not stack up to one picked at random from a decade ago.
