Education in the classics

I mentioned BSG, and other returning shows I like, but time for a bit of
Brilliant but canceled/over.

Funniest. Thing. Ever:

Homicide: Life on the Street, the major network true crime drama.

The Wire, child of NBC's Homicide on HBO. Best. Show. Ever.

Six Feet Under, Alan Ball can do no wrong in entertaining you.

Firefly, the best show FOX never gave a shot

Sports Night, Aaron Sorkin does Olbermann in his ESPN years, with brilliant character actors to flesh out the ensemble. AKA when are the networks going to realize the laugh track is DEAD?!

"What's the deal with sitcoms?"

The West Wing, the liberal political fantasy of flawed, yet intelligent and good-hearted humans with leadership qualities in the White House.


Nuff Said.
