My Five Best TV Shows of 2006

tv 2006

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. The Wire (HBO)
The Wire focuses on a different facet of the city of Baltimore. They are, in order: the drug trade, the port, the city government and bureaucracy, the school system, and the print news media. The large cast consists mainly of character actors who are little known for their other roles. Despite its presentation as a crime drama, the show is really about the American city, and about how we live together. It’s about how institutions have an effect on individuals, and how whether you’re a cop, a longshoreman, a drug dealer, a politician, a judge orlawyer, you are ultimately compromised and must contend with whatever institution you’ve committed to.

2. Heroes (NBC)
Heroes begins by telling the stories of apparently ordinary individuals from around the world who mysteriously develop superhuman abilities, and who then seek to use them to prevent the end of the world as foreseen in images produced by a precognitive painter. The series emulates the aesthetic style and storytelling of American comic books, using short, multi-episode story arcs that build upon a larger, more encompassing storyline.

 

3. The Nine (ABC)

Nine people, mostly strangers to each other, are linked together when they are held hostage in a bank robbery gone wrong. In each episode, viewers learn new details of the 52-hour standoff, of which only brief snippets are seen.

Some time after the end of the standoff, the former hostages arrange a meeting with one another in an effort to stay in touch and help each other. Various characters also form relationships apart from the group and maintain regular contact with each other during the week, while others are connected through relationships that predate the events in the bank.

 

4. Friday Night Lights (NBC)
This series follows the Dillon Panthers, a high school football team based in fictional Dillon, Texas, with particular focus given to the team’s coach, Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler) and his family. The show uses this small-town backdrop to address many issues facing contemporary Middle America.

 

5. Ugly Betty (ABC)

Ugly Betty is the story of Betty Suarez, a good-hearted girl from Queens, New York, brave but sorely lacking in fashion sense and aesthetic polish. Betty is suddenly thrust into a different world when she is hired as a personal assistant at Mode, a trendy fashion magazine based in Manhattan and part of the publishing empire of the wealthy Bradford Meade and his family. Meade hires Betty, despite being a fish out of water, to look after (and keep out of trouble from womanizing) his son, newly-installed Mode editor-in-chief Daniel Meade. In truth, Betty was hired because she is not as aesthetically pleasing like all of Daniel’s other assistants, which has continued to get him in trouble. As time goes by, Betty and Daniel learn to trust one another and ultimately become friends and allies in a world sometimes beautiful and sometimes maddeningly chaotic.
