    You have plain old smashmouth elemental TV story devices--good guys, bad guys, evil corporations, a family unit, and a headlong rush toward the Truth, whatever that may be. Plus this special bonus: Intimations of Jack Bauer.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. What a wild concept, Southland plays an awesome father; who helps the son connect the dots.
    Keeps you on your toes because nothing is for certain.
    My only complaint I have for this show is that they killed off the mother of the daughter. Before they rekindle there relationship.

    Touch, Season 2 A group of people with extraordinary abilities gradually become aware of each others' existence whilst being pursued by a serial killer and hindered by a powerful organization with shady motives. Instead of talking to each other the 'plot' is propelled by the protagonists throwing the idiot ball up in the air which is then caught firmly by somebody else who they have 'coincidentally' brushed against.

    Heroes, Season 1 As above.

    Tim Kring needs some help.

    I really hope this program makes it to another season. It has everything I want from a show, which is mainly an interesting concept. I am so tired of all the same old recycled shows being produced. The acting is superb and I truly buy into the whole plot. Some people might find it a slow burner but I think if you gave it a chance you will become absorbed. Full Review »
