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.

Andromeda The month of May brings the end to several television shows we have known and loved. The end of Angel is certain. The end of Star Trek Enterprise is probable -- though there may be a few (five?) new episodes in the Fall. The end of Andromeda is likely -- the suits signed a contract guaranteeing a fifth season but everybody knows contracts are not binding if you wear a suit, and the suits want out. The only sure survivors are Smallville and Stargate SG-1. Both Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis will have new episodes later this Summer and Smallville returns in the Fall.

Here is what is on in May:
Monday, May 3
Andromeda, "Time Out of Mind"
Wednesday, May 5
Star Trek Enterprise, "E2" (that's E squared in case the superscript does not print) by Mike Sussman
Wednesday, May 5
Smallville, "Talisman"
Wednesday, May 5
Angel, "The Girl in Question" by Steven S. Deknight
Monday, May 10
Andromeda, "A Dissonant Interval I"
Wednesday, May 12
Star Trek Enterprise, "The Council" by Manny Coto
Wednesday, May 12
Smallville, "Forsaken" by Kelly Souders and Brian Patterson
Angel Wednesday, May 12
Angel, "Power Play" by David Fury
Thursday, May 13
Kingdom Hospital, "The Passion of Reverend Jimmy" by Tabitha King and Stephen King
Monday, May 17
Andromeda, "A Dissonant Interval II", season and perhaps series finale.
Wednesday, May 19
Star Trek Enterprise, "Countdown" by Chris Black and Andre Bormanis
Wednesday, May 19
Smallville, "Covenant", season finale, featuring the appearance of a "classic" mythos character. You probably won't be able to avoid hearing the news, but you won't hear it here, since I would rather have been surprised.
Smallville Wednesday, May 19
Angel, "Not Fade Away" by Jeffrey Bell and Joss Whedon, series finale.
Thursday, May 20
Kingdom Hospital, "Seizure Day" by Stephen King
Wednesday, May 26
Star Trek Enterprise, "Zero Hour", season and perhaps series finale.
Thursday, May 27
Kingdom Hospital, "Shoulda Stood in Bed" by Stephen King

Enterprise My pick: Star Trek. Enterprise has had some major surprises in recent weeks, and it looks as if it is going to get really good just as it is going away. If you've been watching Smallville, and plan to catch Enterprise in reruns, try not to let anyone tell you more than you want to know.

Looking further into the future, there is Stargate SG-1, season eight; Stargate Atlantis, season one; Battlestar Galactica, and, in the Fall, Dark Shadows.
