The Best & Worst Television '04

BEST/WORST NEW SHOW

Best:

"Desperate Housewives" drew jaw-dropping Nielsen numbers, "Lost" tantalized with over-the-top plot twists, but the best new series of the year was "Deadwood," David Milch's evocatively reinvented Western. With its rich (and baroquely profane) dialogue, a large cast of refugees, outlaws and grotesques, and towering performances by Ian McShane and Brad Dourif, this was not your father's horse opera. And by populating this lawless, rough-hewn new town with characters that didn't sort neatly into heroes and villains, Milch gave us a show we'll savor watching again on DVD.

</b>Runners-up:</b>
"Rescue Me" -- Denis Leary proves (again) that he's a riveting actor, not just a scabrous, darkly funny comic, as he imbues his firefighting saga with rage, sorrow and wit.

"Lost" -- The best series ever inspired by a paranoid network chief. Sci-fi, satire, horror and soap opera all figure in the whiplash-inducing narrative, and a huge cast promises the water cooler buzz will continue.

"Veronica Mars" -- A smart, credible teen heroine (the wonderful Kristin Bell) makes this mystery series worth rooting for. The ratings have been weak, but UPN's vote of confidence gives us hope.


WeEeee for VM getting one of the best new shows!
