'The Unit' Returns

Only thing better than CSI:Miami on TV right now is The Unit. And they're back, after far too long a time, because of the damn Writer's strike earlier this year.

But when they came back, they did it with a bang. Had me on the edge of my seat and panting for more. Still the best show around.

So, of the current shows, here are my favorites from the selection of those I actually have time for, and that isn't for much:
  1. The Unit
  2. CSI:Miami
  3. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
  4. Bones
  5. Heroes
Yeah, I know, how can Heroes be down there in 5th place? Well, it's very cool, but too big and portentous in many places. The other three shows make do with 'mere' human drama and without grand 'concepts', and they show that it can be done really well and without needing fancy, complicated and significant back stories. Just good old murder and betrayal and revenge and love and all the good things in life. What else do we really need?
