E.R. Live! And Other Comments...

by Christopher Walsh

E.R. has regained my trust with its highly hyped--and highly effective--"E.R. Live" episode, performed live twice, once for each coast. It's a sometimes uneven but great show, with a strong and talented ensemble cast and cinematic use of sights and sounds.

When I heard that the live show--about a documentary crew in the hospital--also would include live music, I was a little skeptica

The Synthesizer and the Odyssey

by Christopher Walsh

The miniseries edition of The Odyssey, happily, overcame the typical problems of translating literature to manageable size for TV; despite the Cliff's Notes story condensing, exceptionally poorly timed cuts to commercials the frequent cartoonishness of men-in-togas acting, the end result was a well-paced, beautifully shot ripping yarn.
