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.


The District / C.S.I.

Police Chief Mannion's know-it-allness is grating, no doubt. And like many crusaders before him, he maintains this attitude no matter what happens, blaming everyone else for what goes wrong.


Desperate Housewives

Then something fantastic happened. About two-thirds of the way through Season Two, some dead weight moved out of Wisteria Lane, and in their place came some exciting new plotlines.


Disappearing Acts (2000): Wesley Snipes, Sanaa Lathan, Clark Johnson, CCH Pounder

This plot comes to revolve around the couple's troubles with money -- it becomes an emblem and manifestation of Zora and Franklin's mutual and separate fears.


Deadline

In 'Deadline', Dick Wolf's new show for NBC, no one, least of all the self-satisfied Wallace Benton (played with plumy waspishness by Oliver Platt), seems to care a fig for the story.
