True, it is a slightly abbreviated season – 18 episodes rather than the usual 22 – but some of these hours achieve a sense of epic in both look and feel that is unusual on episodic television. In those 18 hours, there is only one episode that can be labeled a clunker – at least three are exceptional by just about any standards.

For the next five years, “Combat!” continued recounting stories of the European theater, showcasing the men of King Company. Ironically, the first episode was set in 1944, with the Normandy Invasion, making the last year of the war last five years in real time, later echoed by “M.A.S.H.,” another television series’ that had the anomaly of a broadcast run that lasted twice the length of its subject, the Korean War.

(Crime Scene Investigation)” is an hour-long drama about forensic scientists working in Sin City, Las Vegas, Nevada.

In a move of twisted comedic genius, the first episode of the second season of “South Park” threw viewers for such a curve ball that it had those who thought they loved the show furious, baffled and in shock. Many months had passed since Season One ended. The first season’s shows had been repeated ad nauseam on Comedy Central and it was finally time to learn who impregnated Cartman’s mom at the Drunken Barn Dance ...

This was long before the days of TiVo and for much of this time, the show was not syndicated, so I had to be sure that every Sunday night at 8 PM, my VCR was set to Fox to record what I felt was the best written, funniest show on television. Eventually, school and work got in the way of my quest to record and archive every single “Simpsons” episode and as the popularity of TV shows on DVD began to increase, I knew that eventually every ...
