Emeril

Doesn't Emeril know that media over-saturation could do to him what too few eggs (because I didn't feel like going to the store) did to my Devil's Food chocolate cake?


The Ellen Show

CBS probably wanted it clear from the start that The Ellen Show, unlike Degeneres' previous series, is not a 'lesbian show,' but a show in which the main character just happens to be a lesbian -- an uneasy and unclear difference to be sure.


Ed

Everyone in Stuckeyville seems to have an anomalous background and perspective on life, so the advice that Ed gets ranges from the practical to the absurd.


ER

Perhaps there should be a redistribution of sorrow here, a socialism of tragedy. Spread the misery around so everyone can have some. Let Elizabeth be pregnant and let 'Dr. Dave' get sued for malpractice and pass the brain tumor on to someone else who can 'use' it.


Enterprise

In 'Enterprise', all of the neato gadgets that have become Star Trek mainstays -- tricorders, phasers, communicators -- are new to the characters.


The Execution of Wanda Jean

The specter of the mechanized legal system is the lasting impression of 'The Execution of Wanda Jean'. Despite questions about her mental state, despite the expressed wishes of her victim's brother and mother, despite Wanda Jean's prayerful optimism, the process of her execution is relentless.


DAG

'DAG' is a sitcom about a top Secret Service agent named Jerome Daggett (David Alan Grier) who was once head of the Presidential Detail's elite A-team.


Dark Angel

Her beigeyness is relevant here as well: Alba is on record as being Spanish-Mexican-French-Danish, but more to the point, [her character] Max Guevera is a non-white-girl starring in a world where the people in power are still overwhelmingly Caucasian.


Dawson’s Creek

Agonising over life decisions whilst looking hot is the hallmark of the teen drama.
