This was a pretty lame year for television. Not a whole lot of new great shows, partly due to the writer's strike last winter. Of all the established shows, the really good stuff didn't come till September, if you discount the reality show garbage, and I do.
Thanks to my friends at Entertainment Weekly, we know that Knight Rider and Heroes can be counted as two of the worst series of the year. One is an empty remake, all style and no substance. The other tries to give tribute to comic book adventures but as an adventure itself just is continually a letdown.
Maybe it's just me, but a lot of shows to which I used to be dedicated are now ones I could care less about. Shows like House and The Office are programs I'd sooner brush off than save on my TiVo. But, it wasn't all a wash. There are some shows that I really couldn't get enough of this past season. For all of you who might be interested, here they are:
