Ratings
Ratings are based on a four star system.
One star means that the commercials are more entertaining than the program.
Two stars watch if you have nothing better to do.
Three stars is good solid entertainment.
Four stars means you never dreamed television could be this good.

Wonderfalls There are more new SF and fantasy episodes in April, May, and June than we may ever see again. Some of them may actually be worth watching. In addition to the ones listed below, there will probably be new episodes of Wonderfalls every Thursday and new episodes of Century City every Tuesday.

Better watch them now if you want to watch them at all. Century City will probably end after nine episodes and Wonderfalls, despite excellent reviews, has even lower ratings. Kingdom Hospital is a lot of fun. Century City has already been canceled, and both Wonderfalls and Kingdom Hospital have been moved to the 9 PM Thursday valley of death, where they will be slaughtered by ER.

Review

Century City Century City, "To Know Her" (**) by Roger Wolfson
Century City has a lot of holograms, some good acting, and is a fairly slick lawyer show set thirty years in the future. This episode considers whether experiencing sex via nanoprobes constitutes rape, and if a child star should be allowed to remain a child. The nanostuff is pretty tame for anyone who has read Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash, and the child star is old hat for anyone who has read John Varley's The Golden Globe. As usual, visual SF is fifty years behind written SF.
