Entourage

This HBO production is certainly not going to gain you any IQ points, but it's a fun guilty pleasure about a young up-and-coming Hollywood star and the group of childhood friends that follow him and become his, you got it, "Entourage". Adrian Grenier is fine in the lead role as the big hearted and more or less sensible emerging heartthrob Vince. The supporting actors are also very well chosen. While we could live without some of the vulgarity, it's basic theme, guys sticking together while one of them makes it big, is a healthy one. Kevin Connolly is great as the small but smart friend who eventually becomes Vince's agent. Kevin Dillon is wonderful as Johnny Drama, as is Jerry Ferrera as Turtle. But best of all is Jeremy Piven as Ari Gold, the ruthless, crude agent who is also a loving husband and father. read more

Boardwalk Empire

BoardWalk Empire – This is a period drama about the corrupt mobsters running Atlantic City in the 1920's. We think they could have done a better job of selecting a lead, Steve Buscemi playing Nucky Thompson, but the show has some of our favorite actors (Micheal Kenneth Williams from The Wire does a fine job as Chalky White). Also, the men’s clothing is spot on, thanks to Emmy nominated costume designers John A. Dunn and Lisa Padovani. read more

Friday Night Lights

One of the great TV dramas of all time, about a high school football team in "football mad" Texas. This one has it all: the thoughtful coach trying to win – and mold - good kids, the big hearted booster that cares too much about winning, the kids with their often touching romances. No matter your age, or whether you care about football or not, this is a fine show. It shows how much can be done with great writing and excellent casting and acting. One note that makes this one particularly mystifying is that the writer who wrote the original script for the movie on which the TV show is based is Buzz Bissinger, who later wrote of his bizarre clothing addiction in GQ magazine. read more

Silicon Valley

Why was Mad Men successful? In part because it's one of the few shows that really focuses on work that is relevant to given time. The business of advertising was taking off in the 1960's; currently, technology startups dominate business news. This well executed comedy about a bunch of nerdy kids trying to launch a new tech firm in Silicon Valley is amusing on a number of levels. read more

Better Call Saul

This is based on one of our favorite characters in Breaking Bad, the sleazy lawyer Saul Goodman, played by Jonathan Banks. Saul embodied all that you hope to find in your local junkyard dog lawyer; sleazy TV ads, crowded waiting rooms of “sore neck” personal injury hopefuls, unregistered cash transactions, and very shady connections. But somewhere, deep down, we think that even Saul, like Omar, has a code. read more

Veep

There is no redeeming purpose to this show. You will not be a better person after watching it. But if your brain needs a rest, this half hour comedy about a ruthless female Vice President of the United States, will serve two purposes: 1) It will be entertaining in a cynical low brow sort of way; and 2) If you think that problems can be solved through the national political process, it will shed some light on that process. As a former resident of DC, I can say that the show represents a pretty fair, if exaggerated, picture of the political process in DC. read more
