Family picks

Joan of ArcadiaMike Duffy of the Detroit Free Press offers a number of suggestions for those parents out there looking for family-friendly programming. It can be hard these days to know what is appropriate for all ages. When I was growing up I didn't watch “Hill Street Blues” with my parents, but if I had I wouldn't have been treated to graphic language either. Today is a different story of course, and while content has improved as far as quality, the increase in violence and language isn't the best for young viewers. Duffy' picks “Joan of Arcadia,” “The Bernie Mac Show,” “American Dreams,” “Everwood” and eight others as his top choices. We also learn there will be a new version of "Little House on the Prairie" on ABC. Can't wait until March 26.

If there is a more irritating character on a good show than Grace McCallister, I have yet to see it. Grace, in a nutshell, demostrates why the sixties is overhyped as a "great" era. She is immature, strident and overbearing. She is a one-dimensional character pretending to have depth and conviction; in reality, like her boomer peers, she is an arrested adolescent constantly whining about how important they are. It is this caricature of an ivory tower militantly PC liberal that drove millions to vote for Bush.
