Grimm has been one of my favorite shows since it was released. It’s a week to week cop drama with supernatural ties and these past couple years have had great, long branching stories that hooked me. The acting may not be perfect, but it’s the one Friday night show that I do not want to miss.
4. About a Boy
This show came out of nowhere and became a swift favorite of mine. It’s sweet and shows that a father(ish) figure doesn’t have to be a child’s father and can be a positive force in his developmental life. Easily my favorite sitcom, especially with the cancellation of Raising Hope. It doesn’t caught up in the sentiment, which makes it that much better, and more effective when they do cover emotional subjects.
3. The Flash
A lot lighter than the show it spun off of, The Flash is a welcome addition to the group of Superhero shows currently on TV. It has a great cast, fantastic characters and so much friggen potential. With the second strongest mid-season finale of the season, The Flash is heading into their hiatus with a full head of steam.
2. Whose Line Is It Anyway?
I grew up watching Whose Line, and since’s its triumphant return it has been just as good. With the base cast still intact, Ryan and Colin are still able to be the funniest guys around, and obviously Wayne Brady is a comedy genius. I was fearful that the lack of Drew Carey was going to be a negative, but Aisha Tyler is more than capable of hosting and being all-around funny. The celebrity guests aren’t needed, but if it keeps Whose Line? around, than I’m fine with it.
Is this a surprise? Back when I was a frequent writer of at the Artifice, I wrote an article about how it’s the best superhero TV show ever, that was before the big points in season two. If you want to read that article, feel free to check it out. The show has great characters, strong bonds and amazing action scenes. It’s the perfect show to prove that Superheroes can succeed on television.
