High Redefinition: The 30 Best TV Shows of 2007

In memoriam of a TV season cut down before its prime time, PopMatters staff celebrates the Top 30 TV Shows of 2007. Some are old favorites. Others have barely made their impression felt. But at a time when all broadcast fortunes are up in the air, they definitely deserve the recognition.

Features

Mad Men

Mad Men is stylish and clever, showing men who are simultaneously at the pinnacle of their corporate and personal worlds, and at risk of losing everything.

Television

The Situation (2006)

Even as The Situation makes a mucky melodrama out of the war in Iraq, this effect does not seem entirely inappropriate, as it accommodates a U.S. perspective of its own actions.

Reviews

Jack & Bobby

No matter how much we learn of the President, he remains distant, a mythical figure recalled with admiration by friends and foes alike.

Reviews

Sam the Man (2000)

If Sam the Man didn't tackle some difficult relationship questions so perceptively, its horrible lead and crappy lighting would have sunk it.

Nikki Tranter
Reviews

Jack & Bobby

The structure of Jack & Bobby is more ambitious and convoluted than most teen fare, investing its heroes with a historical weight and grandeur, even if that history is fictional.

Cynthia Fuchs
Reviews

K Street

What does make K Street fascinating is the pinpoint accuracy with which it details the day-to-day lives of its principals.
