The Sopranos

While reality hounds might say that this is exactly how banal contemporary mob life is, they might also remember that a stamped certificate of authenticity doesn't inoculate drama against tedium.


Push, Nevada

In Push, Nevada, producers Ben Affleck and Sean Bailey have come up with a show that is, oddly, both original and formulaic.


Life With Bonnie

You would be hard pressed to find a sitcom debuting this season with more people rooting for it than Life With Bonnie.


Greetings from Tucson

Greetings can't decide if it's comedy because of being Mexican American or in spite of Mexican American -- and that's one thing working in its favor.


Firefly

Firefly is more complicated in its framing story and moral dimensions than the usual sci-fi or Western fare.


Fastlane

The shots are close (is that her hand in his pants?), the cutting is speedy, the soundtrack is kicking: just above the din of the engine, the Vines wail.


Everwood

As I watched Everwood, packed with numerous poignant moments, my own strongest feeling was a longing for South Park's biting critique of 'quiet little mountain towns.'


Cedric the Entertainer Presents

Instead of being safe, Cedric the Entertainer Presents needs to keep it real -- real sharp, real topical and real controversial.

Bob Dylan: Blood on the Tracks

Blood on the Tracks is the one album that rises above all other contenders, obscuring them in its titanic blaze, because it is, at once, so familiar as well as mysterious, and so seemingly simple and yet unruly.
