"Justified" makes the case that even people who make bad choices are worth spending time with -- if they have a code, if they have some kind of loyalty to the place they're from, if they have decent manners, damn it.
It seemed like "The Good Wife" was giving viewers an overly complicated case just because it could. Last week's very simple, straight-forward episode was an elegant work of art, especially when compared to this week's sluggish offering.
"Misfits," "The Fades," "Being Human" and "Lost Girl" allow viewers to escape into a different reality and imagine what it would be like to have special powers or a heroic destiny. I liked one of these shows a lot, and I fell a little in love with another.
I was fascinated by just how often the laugh track is activated, which is a lot. So I tried to put myself in the head of the person who activates the "Work It" laugh track. In the first 10 minutes of the second episode, the laugh track went off 56 (!!!) times.
Personally, I don't believe in New Year's resolutions. But that doesn't stop me from inflicting resolutions on other people. What if TV networks had New Year's resolutions? I suspect it would look a little like this.
