Why Tv Kicks Ass Right Now (buffy, angel & firefly mention)

Thursday 18 August 2005, by Webmaster

TV kicks ass

Here are six reasons why TV kicks ass right now.

No. 1: WEEDSo n Showtime — Showtime continues to be the red-headed stepchild compared to HBO. But, with all those Emmy nominations for Huff, and the premiere of the terrific dark comedy Weeds, Showtime is moving out of HBO’s shadow.

No. 2: IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILDELPHIA on FX: Finally, a sitcom that doesn’t feel like it’s been run through a network focus group. It’s so wrong, it’s brilliant.

No. 3: THE DAILY SHOW on Comedy Central - Jon Stewart and the gang continue to be my main source of news. And yes, I like the new set.

No. 4: RESCUE ME - Where was the Emmy love for this amazing show? The lack of an Emmy nod for Denis Leary is a f@#$%&)! Crime.

No. 5: BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER reruns on FX, ANGEL on TNT and FIREFLY reruns on SciFi - It’s always nice to revisit the Whedon-universe, isn’t it?

No. 6: SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE? on Fox - I know it’s totally lame to like this show. Yet, I watched every second of it so far. I’m so ashamed. I hate myself.
