Question: What shows do you think were the best overall this season? I mean all around: writing, acting, special effects, etc. My picks are Lost, Supernatural, House (the episode two weeks ago, with a drugged-up Wilson, was one of the funniest scenes I've seen in a while and entirely makes up for the Tritter mess), Friday Night Lights, How I Met Your Mother and Heroes (though, granted, it had a teetering start).
Answer: All acceptable choices. But looking at the season as a totality, the shows that brought me the most consistent pleasure — or at least had me anticipating the next episode with the most enthusiasm and interest — include (I'll stop at 10): Friday Night Lights, Lost (putting aside the fall problems), The Shield, 30 Rock, The Office, Battlestar Galactica, Ugly Betty, Brothers & Sisters, The Sopranos and Dexter. OK, make it 11: I ate up Entourage, too.
