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.

April brings the season finale of Battlestar Galactica, plus new episodes of Andromeda, Enterprise, and Smallville.

Battlestar Galactica Time magazine picked Battlestar Galactica as one of the six best dramas on television. (The other five are The Shield, Deadwood, Lost, House, and Veronica Mars.) The Hugo nominations for Best Dramatic Production (short form) are Stargate I, "Heroes" (2 parts), by Robert C. Cooper, Angel, "Smile Time" by Ben Edlund and "Nor Fade Away" by Jeffery Bell and Joss Whedon (Apr 4 on TNT), Lost, "Pilot" by Jeffrey Lieber, Damon Lindelof, and J.J. Abrams, and Battlestar Galactica, "33" by Ronald D. Moore (Apr 8 on Sci-Fi). "33" was not broadcast in the USA until 2005, but is eligible because it was shown in the UK in 2004.
