Three stars is good solid entertainment.
Four stars means you never dreamed television could be this good.

Teen Wolf Two new genre tv shows premiere this month. The first, Teen Wolf, has already aired. It is roughly a half hour of typical teen high jinks: making out, wet dreams, worry about being gay, bowling, hanging, being grounded, chemistry class, with about eight minutes of werewolf spliced in.

It all started in the 1985 movie Teen Wolf, which spawned a sequel, an animated series, and now this MTV series. There's nothing really wrong with it, but it didn't hold my interest. The writers want their teen characters to be "typical" teens, which means nothing at all like real teens. Real people are a lot more interesting than most characters you see on television.

Falling Skies Falling Skies premieres June 19. Aliens conquer Earth. Humans fight back.

Neil Gaiman is "a pencil-necked little weasel" who "stole $45,000 from the state of Minnesota" according to Republican Minnesota congressman Matt Dean. Gaiman's crime? The winner of Hugo and Nebula awards, the Newberry Medal, and the Carnegie Medal in Literature was presumptuous enough to accept an offer of $40,000 to speak at a Minnesota library. Doesn't he know only Wall Street Bankers deserve that kind of money? Republicans. Gotta love 'em.
