President MacKenzie Allen, played by Geena Davis, was fixing to square off with Donald Sutherland’s Nathan Templeton character, her conservative arch political nemesis. But before this unusual run for The White House even heard the starting gun, it was all over. Poor ratings cast the final and deciding “no” vote for this prematurely cancelled program. What a shame.

I was too. The premise of this ABC TV program, now on hiatus, imagines the first female president of The United States. It smacks of political correctness and a feminist agenda. It conjures up visions of a Spice Girl starring in “The West Wing”. It suggests freakin’ Girl Power in The White House, for heaven’s sake! The good news is that none of these nightmarish summations describe the actual program. By the time you’re finished viewing these ten episodes, it won’t matter at all that this president was portrayed by a woman. Instead, you’ll be hooked on a smart ...

title: “Scrubs” The Complete Third Season studio: Buena Vista Home Entertainment MPAA rating: TV-14 starring: Zach Braff, Donald Faison, John C.

After five seasons on television, “Scrubs” ...

R. Knight, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens Jr., Isaiah Washington, Patrick Dempsey Theatrical release year: 2005 DVD release year: 2006 film rating: Five Stars sound/picture rating: Five Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom “Grey’s Anatomy” began life as a mid-season replacement series on television in March 2005, then became one of the most highly-advertised television shows of this year’s Super Bowl with its “Code Black” episodes. The first season is comprised of only nine episodes, but those nine episodes set the characters, the world of Seattle Grace Hospital and the tone for a series that should have a long run on television because it hits the high points of emotional context, interesting medical procedures, characters that feel three-dimensional, crackling dialogue and an organic overall plot growth (read soap opera tendencies, but remember these very tendencies are what drives hit shows like “Lost,” “Desperate Housewives” and ...

The 30-minute comedy with moments that touch hearts, all set to outstanding music scores, has been favorably compared to “M.A.S.H.” Located in an actual hospital, "Scrubs" totally has the look and feel of the environment. Nothing in the show feels like a set. Instead, we get the impression that we’re looking into the inner, if somewhat zany, workings of an actual medical facility under a full head of steam.
