The 25 Best One-Season Television Shows of the Last 25 Years

15 August 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the age of peak TV, we’ve gotten to see many series which are constructed to be satisfying after just one season of storytelling. But it’s important to remember that this is a relatively new phenomenon, that all too often, potentially great shows will get cancelled before getting the chance to reach their full potential.

Read More:8 Cancelled TV Shows That Got A ‘Twin Peaks’-Style Revival

The list below focuses on scripted series, reaching back over two decades to cover some of television history’s most disappointing ends. The aim is to remember some of network and cable’s most audacious experiments, for better and for worse.

25. “Almost Human” (2013-2014)

In many ways, “Almost Human” was deeply flawed to a degree that made its cancellation understandable — it struggled to balance too many plot threads with an over-reliance on recycled world-building, ultimately failing to coalesce despite some ambitious »

Daniel Licht, ‘Dexter,’ ‘Children of the Corn’ Composer, Dies at 60

3 August 2017 9:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Daniel Licht, composer for TV’s “Dexter,” died of cancer late Wednesday. He was 60.

Licht scored all eight seasons of “Dexter,” the Showtime serial-killer drama, from 2006 to 2013. Although he also wrote music for movies and other TV projects, it was his quirky music for “Dexter” – employing unusual sounds using bones, knives, scissors, duct tape, wine glasses, didgeridoo, Irish harp and other instruments – that became his best-known work.

Seven albums of “Dexter” music, all featuring his scores, were released. Licht himself played many of the percussion instruments in a 10-minute orchestral suite of “Dexter” music performed live at Poland’s Krakow Film Music Festival in 2015.

Said “Dexter” executive producer Clyde Phillips: “Dan was an incredibly talented musician and composer, but most of all, he was a dear friend. His passing leaves all of us a bit quieter, a bit sadder, and without the gift of his music and his love »

Anthony Bourdain Reveals His Only Rule for Workplace Happiness

15 February 2017 9:53 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Research has shown that happier employees are more productive in the workplace.

For the globe-trotting, Emmy Award-winning host of “Parts Unknown,” chef Anthony Bourdain, that can be achieved with one simple rule.

”The No A–hole Rule,” Bourdain said in a recent New Yorker podcast interview, when asked how he avoided burnout. “Absolutely everyone I do business with I like. I always ask myself: Look. There’s a lot of money involved here—but if the phone rings at 10 at night, am I going to go, ‘aw damn’? I’m not going to do that… life is too short.”
