PopMatters - Television - Reviews - Once and Again


The Osbournes

'The Osbournes' is one big joke about normalcy, a parody of sitcoms and reality shows alike. By now, Ozzy Osbourne is, of course, something of a self-parody.


The Office

In Season Two, Michael morphed from clown to sad clown as viewers came to realize his insensitive hi-jinks were driven by his eternal loneliness.


PopMatters - Television - Reviews - Opening Ceremony, Olympics 2000

Whatever its faults, I loved the whole Opening Ceremony, every last minute of it. What I didn't love was NBC's coverage of it.


The Other Half

But, still, despite their best of intentions, the four hosts of 'The Other Half' seem far afield from the real experiences or the views of the 'average' American male.


The O.C.

The producers finally figured out a way for commercial tie-ins to complement but not overwhelm the plot.


NCIS

Though she has more than a passing interest in death, BDSM, and the industrial-goth combo Android Lust, Abby is a veritable ray of sunshine among the body parts and analytical equipment that clutter up her workplace.


Nikki

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.


9/11

CBS defended '9/11' by explaining that no deaths were filmed and that the footage would be 'respectful.' Yet, this is completely untrue.


Normal, Ohio

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.
