2010 a year filled with gifts for TV fans
Now that Christmas is almost upon us, I’ve made a few notes about some
of the gifts bestowed upon TV fans this past year:
Though it was sad for such an entertaining, maddening, theory-provoking,
compelling series to end, the finale of “Lost” was unbelievably
emotional and moving, particularly Matthew Fox’s performance in his role as conflicted leader Jack Shephard. Overall, I don’t know that any show has piqued the imagination like this one and the indelible castaway characters will be greatly missed.
Another series that challenges the mind, “Fringe” was especially
demanding of viewers as they watched the third season begin this fall
with Olivia (Anna Torv) stuck in the sci-fi drama’s alternate universe
and that world’s Olivia taking her place in ours. My only small
complaint, though, is that I hope more scenes featuring Walter (John
Noble) will be upcoming in 2011. He adds warmth and humor to the
fascinating, strange and bizarre events that occur in this show’s story lines.
“The Good Wife” hasn’t missed a beat in its second season, continuing
its solid story lines centering on attorney Alicia Florrick (Julianna
Margulies) and her complicated relationships with her husband Peter
(Chris Noth)and old friend/boss Will (Josh Charles)as well as the
intriguing cases she works on. Extra kudos for Michael J. Fox’s
wonderful guest starring performance.
“Dexter” had a tough assignment in its fifth season, following up after
its fourth season’s jaw-dropping conclusion in 2009. But as every season
has been so far, the writing’s held up, always going in unexpected yet
satisfying directions. Michael C. Hall contributed as always as well in
making this past season and its finale thrilling and poignant – no easy
feat for a show about a serial killer.
The updated version of “Hawaii Five-0″ brought action and humor in its debut in the
fall 2010 season. This show has just the right ingredients to take your
mind off your busy day, relax and enjoy the scenery of Hawaii, the fun
rapport between Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) and Danny “Danno”
Williams (Scott Caan) and watch the 5-0 team catch the bad guys in
sometimes unorthodox, but pretty much always successful, ways. Remaking
shows often doesn’t work, but this one clicks on every level.
