The topic of what makes a TV Show great comes down to a man’s close to home inclination. It is safe to say that you are a man that preferences comedies? Is it true that you are a man that watches only PBS? There is nothing amiss with this. The primary concern that makes a TV indicate great relies on what you think works.
There are tons of “best of” lists out there, but this one from Cleveland.com about the 40 best TV seasons since 2000 is pretty good. They nailed it with some great selections like Season 4 of “The Wire” as the top season overall (sorry to spoil the suspense!). Fans will quibble about the best season from that amazing series, but Season 4 is certainly worthy of that honor.
They also focused on some great opening seasons from shows that eventually lost their way, like “Lost,” “House of Cards,” “Boardwalk Empire” and “True Blood.” They could have added season one of “Sons of Anarchy” to that list.
Check out the list and you’ll get some great binge-watching ideas.
Bruce Springsteen stopped by The Late Show to promote his new book, and Stephen Colbert pressed him on his top 5 all-time Bruce songs. Frankly it was a pretty lame question, as Bruce didn’t really get into answering it, but some of his selections were interesting.
Created by Glen Larson and beginning in 1978, Battlestar Galactica keeps on coming back. There have been films, television series, books comics and games all based around a science fiction world thought up by Larson. All productions begin with the same basic idea – a group of 12 human colonies engage in a war with the alien Cylons who want to wipe out the humans. They attack all of the colonies and most of the humans are killed, meaning the survivors flee. One large spaceship, named Battlestar Galactica has survived the attack and they go off in search of a mythical thirteenth colony, Earth.
One of our all-time favorite redheads, the lovely Marilu Henner, will be joing “Dancing with the Stars” for the new season. You can see from the photo below that Marilu still looks pretty spectacular after all these years. We loved her as Elaine Nardo in her “Taxi” days so we’re looking forward to seeing this curvy redhead dancing on TV this fall.
