Reno 911! (2003–2009)
An All-Around Good Show
24 August 2004
Reno 911 is one of the best shows on television. It doesn't take itself too seriously, yet maintains a level of professionalism. The characters are cliches, but they are funny without going into that factor. The relationships are key in this show and shine when they are interviewed together. The show cares for the characters, but not so much as to guard them from harm. The perps are also very funny. Michael Ian Black was awesome as the sex offender and the Truckee Strangler was terrifically deadpan. The prostitution man is a delight and Terry can Xanadu it any time. Dangle is the strongest character, but I wish that the others were given a bigger chunk of screentime.

King of the Hill (1997–2010)
Smart show
24 August 2004
This show manages to be funny, while remaining truthful. Hank's emotional unavailabilty and qualms about giving physical affection are both very true to life. Bill's character is also very realistic. All of the characters have quirks, but the show gives an intelligent background to why they are there. For instance, Dale's paranoia is brought on by his father running away blaming the government, when he was actually ashamed of his own homosexuality. That also makes Dale hyper-aware of society, but not the problems in his own home, i.e. Nancy's obvious infidelity.

This show may be the first cartoon to have any emotional truth.

The Drew Carey Show (1995–2004)
A Cut Above
31 July 2004
I don't usually like shows starring stand-up comics. They end a great comics career and usually aren't acted that well. Drew Carey is different. Every part is played pitch perfect and it has good, plausible storylines.

The show went downhill after Kate and Oswald broke up, but that happens with all shows. The Mimi/Steve pairing was well-played and emotionally fulfilling. I'm not much of a fan of Drew/Kate and the show would have been better without it. Wick is the strongest character, albeit cartoonish. But the whole show is.

My favorite episode would be when they attempted to win an Emmy. It was the epitome of the show-goofy.

M*A*S*H (1972–1983)
barely an egg
28 December 2002
I love this show (seasons 1-5 at least). I love the characters. I love the writing. I love the...theme song. I love the fact that when M*A*S*H was on prime time I wasn't even born and was barely an egg but I still love this show. That says a lot about M*A*S*H.

Hey Dude (1989–1991)
Dude, I grew up on that show!
18 October 2002
All right when I was a kid Hey Dude was like the bombdiggity. Now a sponge with a seashell for a friend is the bombdiggity.

I miss classic Nick. Hey Dude taught valuable lessons and was funny. But due to Nick's brilliant plan to center around Orlando, Hey Dude (shot on location in Arizona) was canceled. This sucks.

Hey Dude: the original bombdiggity.

Deserving
15 August 2002
I'm sick of hearing critics say that Tom Hanks' performance was moving. It wasn't. He was bland and boring. At one point in the movie I had to ask the person sitting next to me if Hanks was having a seizure. Sadly, he wasn't. If anyone deserves all those Oscars its 14 year old Tyler Hoechlin.

Parody
10 August 2002
This movie was good. It was not theatre good but it was good. Most people who have seen this movie do not realize that 'The Lost Season" is a parody. And a good one.
