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.

What to look for in January? Not much. January is a slow month for tv. Here are a few suggestions: three each from The X-Files and Star Trek: Voyager (X-Files looks like the better bet). Plus one excellent Voyager rerun you may have missed.

Star Trek: Voyager
January 6
"Tuvix" (***) by Andrew Price, Mark Gaberman, and Kenneth Biller
     One of the few really memorable Voyager episodes, from the second season. Nelix and Tuvok are combined into one person.

January 12
"Fair Haven" by Robin Burger
     A new writer. A holodeck episode. Too much of Voyager takes place on the holodeck.

January 19
"Blink of an Eye" (writer not announced)
     There was an original Trek called "Wink of an Eye".

January 26
"Virtuoso" (writer not announced)

The X-Files
January 9
"Orison" by Chip Johannessen
     Johannessen was a major writer for Millennium. It will be interesting to see how he makes the transition to The X-Files.

January 16
"The Amazing Maleeni" by Frank Spotnitz, Vince Gilligan, and John Shiban
     Top writers make this a good bet for the best SF tv in January.

January 23
"Signs and Wonders" by Jeffrey Bell
     Good writer, whose previous X-Files are "The Rain King", "Alpha", and this season's "The Goldberg Variation".

And we can look forward to the next big mythos two-parter on the first two X-Files in February: "Sein und Zeit" (Chris Carter again making good use of his Freshman German.)
