“Mad Men” launches its Season Four this Sunday night, and, like several other ensemble dramas before it (“West Wing,” “24,” etc.), it’s moving beyond a cult-type audience to a wider viewership. The show had some more Emmy nominations and wins […]
Yes, yes, yes: despite the fact that I think HBO’s smash hit series ‘True Blood’ is as depraved as it gets, which is not exactly up my alley, I still keep watching it. It might be the train wreck effect […]
“Fade whatever is left of the family hour,” said the story. “It’s about to get even racier out there.” When it comes to primetime television, the gap between what’s in the public interest and what will profit private sector just […]

Yes it is true that I watch any and every show that features vampires and werewolves. I just can’t help myself. The latest addition to this tv series trend is ABC’s new, ‘The Gates.’ To be honest, I didn’t even […]
So I confess: I am pretty obsessed with ‘Pretty Little Liars.’ Yes, it’s ABC Family’s newest high school soap, but it’s more or less a ‘Gossip Girl’ series with a mystery twist. And the girls are more likable (more or […]
