Opinion of Current Television Shows, Part 3

Just a few more parts to go.

Mad Men: The writing team is extremely talented and the acting is simply amazing. The show has very few flaws and I don't have any complaints about it. The only reason why Mad Men is one of my favorite shows right now is the kind of show it is. I like genre shows the most, and Mad Men definitely ain't it.

Warehouse 13: The stories aren't that coherent and contain many plotholes, but the characters make up for it. The team relationships is really great, and the artifacts are cool for the most part. For a light summer show, Warehouse 13 fits the role nicely.

Psych: I think Psych is a little underapproved by the critics. The writing is iffy at times, but the acting, especially by James Roday is brilliant.

Burn Notice: I think the deal involving who blacklisted Michael is a little weak, and I think the show would do better focusing on it, but it would change the tone of the show. Michael and Co. are criminals with good hearts. With the action blended with comedy, Burn Notice looks like it will survive for a very long time.

Royal Pains: I started off liking Royal Pains even more than the latest season of Burn Notice, but after a while, I started noticing all the problems in the shows. I'll keep watching, but I'm worried about where it's going.

Leverage: The first season was absolutely mindblowing, but season 2 was sort of been a let down so far.

Dark Blue: I watched Dark Blue during the summer and it was pretty good. It wasn't anything special, but the tone of the show and acting made it watchable.
