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.

Torchwood Falling Skies and Torchwood, while not deathless classics, held my interest to the end. Terra Nova did not. It wasn't terrible, it just didn't hold my interest. I'm still watching Sanctuary, but if it wants to keep me as a viewer, it needs to start making sense.

Now that the great Doctor Who is between seasons, I'm rewatching a lot of old television: Earth: Final Conflict, Season One (surprisingly good), The West Wing, Season Four (one of the greatest tv shows of all time), and, next up, 24, Season 7.
