Here in 2014, when “televised” entertainment is increasingly not what we watch on our televisions, television shows have never been better.
Television shows defined in 2014 as being cable shows, and web shows, and streaming shows…. Television shows, the broad definition are doing great, while Television shows, the specific definition ( televised via the airwaves, and broadcast networks such as ABC or FOX) continue to languish in formula and mediocrity.
There are exceptions, such as ARROW and THE GOOD WIFE and ALMOST HUMAN, but the ratio of hits to misses is far beter for channels like NETFLIX or AMC.
Some of the shows currently wowing me are:
HOUSE OF CARDS, BURN NOTICE, ARROW
More to come.
