With so many viewing choices, why does everything start to look the same. One realty show looks like another, one drama feels like the one before it, and one comedy draws heavily from the shows of the past. Have we run out of new ideas or do we simply believe that throw a new actor at an old project, like adding a new coat of paint, will make us believe that something is brand new. Until of course it breaks down quickly.
For me, the most original show out there today is Heroes. Looks like a comic book, acts like a drama, plays like sci fi. Really well done. Plus it offers its viewers innovative interactive opportunities. Well done, NBC.
