I'll be the first to admit that Season 4 of Rescue Me is not the series' best season. But it is still essential and if you're a true fan, you should not skip over it (or any season, for that matter). After I finished Season 4 upon its original airing, my disappointment with the season as a whole eventually made me not want to continue when Season 5 started airing. Season 4 is disappointing for a few reasons. 1, it runs around too many circles of repeated tired storylines that had become custom in the first 3 seasons. 2, too many episodes became focused on Tommy Gavin's character, and the rest of the cast felt shoe-horned to the side. 3, the death of a very important character, which was both random and tragic, but in all the wrong ways (more on that later). Finally, it just seemed that the show as a whole was running out of ideas and trying desperately to just stay in the ratings while losing focus on what the show was about when it started. However, all these feelings aside, after hearing rave things about Season 5, I eventually decided to give it another shot. To gain the freshest perspective possible, I started re-watching the series from the start and I gotta say that when I got back around to Season 4, I found it wasn't quite as bad as I remember it being. While the story does go in the aforementioned pointless circles of repetition and oddly stupid moments (the prime example being the love scene that takes place in a burning building with Gavin and a drunken female being rescued), the season reminded me that if it was all awful, I would've stopped watching sooner instead of making it through the season when it first aired. Also, the previously mentioned character death that was more a slap in the face of the audience then useful dramatic weight to the story (I won't say which character so it doesn't spoil any new viewers), was actually handled a lot better than I thought. The episode in which the death occurs beautifully wraps up all his storylines and pays a lot of respect to him, even if the death still serves no dramatic purpose. All in all, yes, Season 4 is not up to par with those before (and after?) it, but as I'm writing this I am just over halfway through Season 5 and I gotta say, WOW. Season 5 is a HUGE step up from everything the show has done wrong since, really, the series began. Granted, there's still flaws, but the improvements largely overshadow those flaws. So the point is, while Season 4 may not be great (it does have its moments), it's worth it to continue the show into Season 5.

My son is almost 5 now and totally obsessed with superheroes. We have some of the more sophisticated cartoons and movies, but they started giving him nightmares when he hit that age when their imaginations just take a huge leap. He met Spiderman in person at Universal and suddenly we could NOT talk him out of believing that the "bad guys" were just as real! This version is cute and geeky and cheeky, almost just silly, but he thinks it's cool. They are the same characters that are on his underwear. I like that they include some female superheroes as well (tough to find the action figures though, especially ones appropriate for younger kids).

Many British sit-coms dare to utilize subjects and situations that US television wouldn't endeavor. Vicar of Dibley is a great example, founding humor and a certain depth in a small town that revolves around a small church with a newly ordained female vicar. Unafraid to poke fun at religion, it also has the courage to show the way The Church can be inspirational

Season 2 of the critically acclaimed series "Mad Men" is another example of the fantastic quality of programming coming out of the cable networks. Season 2 follows Don Draper as he struggles to balance his life at home with Betty and the kids with the secret life he leads in the city. The character of Peggy Olson also shows a great character arc from where she left off in the first season. The acting by the entire female cast especially is phenomenal. The way they each can show so much of the pressures and burdens that they face through their eyes and expression it is no wonder that this is an award winning show. Overall this is great television and definitely lives up to the hype!

"Coupling" is an exceptionally well-written and insightful series - but it will take you a while to catch your breath before you notice. It's hilarious! Take Steven's dispassionate defense of the artistic perspective in his video fave "Lesb**n Sp*nk Inferno" from Season 1 Episode 4. Or the delicate plot interplay in Season 2 Episode 9, "The End of The Line". Or anything Jeff has to say on the state of contemporay male-female relations. Beware the "Melty Man"! Don't miss this unique, entertaining adult fare. [For Dr. Who fans: the principal writer, Stephen Moffatt, also penned 4 of the VERY best episodes of the new series, "The Earthly Child/The Doctor Dances" from season 1 (which introduced Capt. Jack Harkness of the "Torchwood" spinoff), "The Girl in the Fireplace" from season 2 and "Blink" from season 3. The first three won Hugo awards (the Oscar of science fiction) and the fourth is nominated for 2008 (winners to be announced in Aug.)]
The Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, is an annual event held by the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences, or AMPAS. The sizzle of Hollywood movie stars, the red carpet and the golden Oscar statuette are staples of the formal award show. The event recognizes achievements in the film industry with awards given to actors, directors, writers and others. The show is televised and shown globally in late February; in 2009 the Academy Awards were viewed internationally in over 90 countries.
