Dave!I've been pleasantly surprised with the terrific new television programs showing up this season. So much so, that they're starting to back up on my TiVo. The latest David E. Kelley lawyer drama Boston Legal is deliciously good, with James Spader and William Shatner turning in jaw-droppingly good performances. Desperate Housewives shows promise. Lost is as brilliant as I had hoped it would be. Veronica Mars is far better than we deserve. And C.S.I. New York has redeemed the crappy Miami imitation with a darkly different take on the original.

Compare these five (six if Life as We Know It lives up to the buzz) to how many series from last season I am still watching: just two. Arrested Development and Joan of Arcadia... and if Joan gets any more whiney, I'll be down to one.

Now if I only had time to watch all of them.

    I was really surprised by Boston Legal. I had my weekly schedule of TV shows written down, so this came as a real surprise when I found out it premiered. Just enough wacky characters to love.
    And CSI:NY is just as good as the original. I love the New York crime-mood of it.

    I had high hopes for Boston Legal because I loved James Spader in “The Practice”… but the show exceeded my every expectation. I hope it stays this good.
