Not So Vast Wasteland

ScrubsTelevision is a heck of a lot better today than it has been at just about any time I can remember. This includes the glory days of my youth when networks actually thought they could pass off the likes of “Matt Houston” as quality entertainment and people would go for it. Everybody loves “The Sopranos” of course, but I’m equally wowed by “The West Wing,” and I’m probably more impressed by this season’s newly initiated “Scrubs” than just about anything else. That said, I really, really have to stop watching TV, because it stills sucks the energy from one’s soul mercilessly.
