Everybody Hates Chris (2005)
I can't believe the Emmys snubbed this show!
I watched every episode of Everybody Hates Chris during its first season. The show and cast are wonderful. I am so disappointed this show was not nominated for an Emmy. T'china Arnold, especially, deserves best actress for her work. The Man with the Golden Arm has nothing on mama's sugar withdrawal. You can't put a price on this character's sacrifice giving up chocolate turtles to cut expenses for the family. Her portrayal was outstanding. The whole series has been great family entertainment, important values displayed each episode and, thankfully, very light on the schmaltz. I hope UPN continues to realize the gem they have here, even if Hollywood has overlooked its sparkling appeal.
The Ringer (2005)
Not too many authentically 'challenged' actors here with lines. Like watching an ape movie with actors in gorilla suits. What's to watch? Then there was the Ringer's greasy, gambling addicted uncle trying to hide his UK accent biting on a 1 inch stogy. Again with the outsourcing of supporting roles to Britain? One good actor with one good line turns up by the end of the first 20 pages. Knoxville's Special Olympics roommate (Billy) blasts him for scratching his CD "in clear daylight". Even Anchorman got off the ground sooner than that. There was a good deal more commitment from the actors in Stuck On You. Was it really necessary to go with so many 'union' comedic actors? It would have been much more enjoyable if a few more Edward Barbanelli's had been cast.
My So-Called Life (1994)
My So-Called Life
I have watched this series in 3 consecutive runs on Noggin. I watch it as I do my morning exercises. I try to remember how when this series premiered, I had just had my second child and I was waiting tables, at night, so I missed the first run. But I do recall all of the hoopla over the Bedford Falls production. As much as I typically avoided acclaimed TV in the 90s, this show was worthy of all of the attention. Each time I see an episode I marvel at the writing, cinematography, and commitment to continuity. And finally, I am sad that we never learn what happens after Angela learns Brian Krakow wrote the love letter of her life, rather than Jordan Catalano.
