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.

Here is what to look for in the month of March, as The X-Files and Voyager move toward the end of what is probably their last and next-to-least seasons, respectively. Watch them now. You'll miss them when they're gone.

But first, a word about Pitch Black. Fuhgeddaboudit. Entertainment Weekly liked it, but that tells you more about the IQ of their writers than it tells you about the movie.

The X-Files

The following four episodes were originally announced for the four Sundays in March. It now looks like the first Sunday in March will be a rerun, which pushes them all back at least one week.
"Theef" by Vince Gilligan, Chris Carter, and Frank Spotnitz
This sounds like a good one.

"BioForge" by William B. Davis
The first episode written by Cigarette Smoking Man -- must see.

"The Widow's Eye"
It's an unknown quantity.

"all things", by Gillian Anderson and Vince Gilligan
The first episode written by Scully. She has got to be a better writer than Mulder, especially with Gilligan around to help.

Looking ahead to April, we've got another episode penned by Duchovny to look forward to. Sigh.

Star Trek: Voyager

Look for five new episodes to debut in March.
"Ashes to Ashes" by Ronald Wilkerson and Robert Doherty
Borg Children, part two of three

"Child's Play"
Borg Children, part three of three

"Good Shepherd"
no info

It features the return of Kes. Jennifer Lein is a fine actor. Her return is welcome, even if only for one episode.

"Live Long and Prosper"
There's no info, but we can hope for a Tuvok episode.

The X-Files continues to produce inventive, clever three star episodes. Voyager continues to produce earnest, sincere two star episodes. Still, they are the only SF on the air that I can bring myself to sit through, and I do look forward to them.
