Steve Harris

Cheers to Friday Night Lights for putting a spotlight on Steve Harris.

Best New Fall Shows: Our Editors' Picks

Body of Proof, Hawaii Five-O

We've watched the pilot episodes of all the new fall shows and made our picks for the best new comedies and dramas.

Better With You (ABC)

Premise: Sisters Maddie (Jennifer Finnigan), a high-strung attorney, and Mia (Privileged's JoAnna Garcia), a free-spirited "inventor," are fundamentally different. Maddie lives with, but has not married, Ben (Josh Cooke), her boyfriend of nine years. "It's a valid life choice," she repeats throughout the pilot. Mia, on the other hand, has just agreed to marry Casey (Jake Lacy), her boyfriend of seven-and-a-half weeks. Kurt Fuller and Debra Jo Rupp play the girls' quirky parents.

Why We Like It: The chemistry among the six leads is fantastic, and the snappy dialogue is very funny. The show was created by Shana Goldberg-Meehan, one of the big brains behind Friends.

But ... Both sisters are... read more

October 31, 2006: Fools for Love

I knew it. I find myself saying that a lot when I watch this show, and I don't think I'm alone. It is very satisfying to be able to correctly declare what's going to happen before the show reveals it. You end up feeling like House, who himself spends most of the show declaring the answer before he has the research to back it up. So join me in some self-congratulatory back-patting if you, like I did, correctly called the identity of the officer who pulled House over before he stepped out of the car and also if you called the brother/sister twist to tonight's medical mystery. In case you are wondering, hell yes, I would want to know if I had inadvertently married my sibling, as Tracy (Jurnee Smollett) and Jeremy (Raviv Ullman) did. I'm somewhat disturbed that the sympathetic Foreman thought this situation was something his ailing couple of patients could get past. I appreciate Foreman's wanting to look at the big picture, but let's narrow the focus. Some things you just can't get over... read more
