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.

Nirvana Unseen

['Nirvana Unseen' is] a head-trip because MTV would never let a band do something like that now.

Nigella Bites

'Nigella Bites' looks like a Renoir-inspired celebration of food, glorious food!

NYPD Blue

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.

PopMatters - Television - Reviews - Making the Band

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?

Murder in Small Town X

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.

PopMatters - Television - Reviews - Madigan Men

As unfair as it may seem, a wealthy, handsome single architect with a commitment to monogamy and an Irish accent simply would not have that much trouble getting a girlfriend. Hell, 'I'd' date him.

The Michael Richards Show

What's puzzling is why they didn't just call the thing 'Cosmo Kramer, P.I.' That's what audiences wanted, and that's essentially what the show turns out to be.

Malcolm in the Middle

In much the same way that the Conners of 'Roseanne' exploded the myth of the unified, dad-centered sitcom family, the Wilkersons are a unit in which the siblings really do try to kill each other and the parents maintain control through guerilla strategy rather than homespun aphorisms -- just like real families. Radical notion, that.

Law & Order: Criminal Intent

Because Goren's intellect and intuition never fail, Criminal Intent's narratives never consider the presumption of innocence as a legal (or dramatic) standard.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Part of the problem is that the 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit' writers haven't given Ice T much to do: he's Munch's Yes Man, and it doesn't become him.

It's difficult to believe that six people can be so self-absorbed and shortsighted, let alone gathered in the same workplace.
