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.

I don't plan on reviewing The X-Files: I Want to Believe, by Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz, because it has almost no fantasy or science fiction content. It is a horror film about a mass murderer. I'll just say I enjoyed seeing Scully and Mulder again, and that there is a brief credit cookie.

The best television this month, going by the buzz, will be the Season Four finale of Doctor Who. The next Doctor Who will be the 2008 Christmas Special.
