• Shrouded in mystery

    CNN’s “Finding Jesus,” which debuted on March 1, claims it will discover new and fascinating insights into the historical Jesus using the latest scientific technology. So what better way to start off a series with such a lofty objective than to dedicate its first hour to the Shroud of Turin.

  • Get a life

    In his ode to celebrity worship, Ray Davies wrote, “Everybody’s in movies, everybody’s a star, everybody’s in showbiz. … It doesn’t matter who you are.” What a harbinger of things to come! Now, through the distorted lens of reality television shows, people with no discernible talents are constantly anointed with undeserving fame.

  • Truth and consequences

    Try telling the truth ... it's easier to remember.

  • Time to lawyer up

    In the interest of journalistic integrity, I must self-report that the following article is biased. The new show “Better Call Saul,” the prequel to AMC’s seminal series “Breaking Bad,” has now been loosed on the public. Being a self-proclaimed “addict” of “Breaking Bad,” I went into the first two episodes of “Better Call Saul” predisposed to not just like the show but to be entranced by it.

  • Getting back to nature

    I’m not sure what is worse, the fact that there are more than 25 shows on television that have Alaska as their principle back drop, or the fact that I have seen portions of just about every one of them. I am either an astute observer of demographic and ratings trends in the television industry, or somebody who needs to find a hobby. 

  • Gatekeeping

    According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, “watching three to four hours of non-educational TV per day, children will have seen about 8,000 murders on TV by the time they finish elementary school.”

  • And the winner is...

    It has begun. Like the turning of the leaves in the fall, the beginning of the new year brings the awards season. Ironically, the Academy Awards, accolades reserved exclusively for the motion picture industry, are relentlessly shaped, driven and molded by the super-hyped televised presentation of the Oscars.

     

     

  • Lost in space

    The History Channel has fallen hard from the esteem it held when they ran countless documentaries about World War II and the rise and thankful fall of Nazism. Now, they put just about anything up on their schedule and any similarity between this programming and history is strictly accidental.

  • The feast of the vainglorious

    America’s new High Holy Day is fast approaching. The National Football League’s playoffs will culminate with the Super Bowl on Feb. 1 in Phoenix.

  • All I want from television in 2015

    It’s that time of year when people make New Year’s resolutions they have neither the willpower nor inclination to keep.
