Both Nikki and Dwight seem like people you'd be willing to invite into your home for half an hour -- not a quality to underestimate, I realized after watching the first two episodes of this season's 'Friends' and feeling, after they were over, glad to be away from that bunch of screeching narcissists.
CBS defended '9/11' by explaining that no deaths were filmed and that the footage would be 'respectful.' Yet, this is completely untrue.
In a nation where the man who will be president is afraid to say the word 'gay' on national television, it might come as a surprise that one of its biggest television stars is playing a gay man on television.
['Nirvana Unseen' is] a head-trip because MTV would never let a band do something like that now.
'Nigella Bites' looks like a Renoir-inspired celebration of food, glorious food!
The real bright spot on 'NYPD Blue' as of last season, is the addition of Danny Sorenson, played by an all-grown-up Rick(y) Schroeder, to replace the sainted Simone. Who knew that the little kid from 'Silver Spoons' could handle a complicated adult role so well?
No doubt MTV feels good about itself right now, pleased with the kick-off to its year of anti-hate programming.
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?
The real problem is that 'Murder in Small Town X' can't decide how 'real' it wants to be.
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.
