<I>Magic City</I>: Where the Magic Never Really Happens

Magic City is the latest of the recent attempts to create a great period drama, but sadly this Starz show falls short. While it may looks as pretty as Mad Men or Boardwalk Empire, it has a lot more in common with the short-lived Pan Am and Playboy Club. And while those were fun while they lasted, there's a reason they failed to attract much of an audience. But Starz has already renewed their program for a second season before it even aired a single episode. Let's hope no horses, or other defenseless animals, have to suffer in order for this cable network to see the error of their premature decision.

TWoP 10: Midseason Shows We're Already Excited About

Fall season is underway, and maybe it's just us, but we're already sick of seeing ads for these shows and talking about these pilots. Especially since almost all of the pilots we did see that really knocked our socks off aren't airing until midseason. We are not patient people, so we're looking ahead at the winter to the shows that have piqued our interest. Some we haven't seen, but on paper they've got a lot of potential and could be the cure for our forthcoming winter doldrums.

The show may be called New Girl, but for us, it's all about the Schmidt.
