Eli Stone is becoming my favorite show of late. While it does have that, "everything is perfect" feel at times. There is an uncertainty to characters outcomes. There is a bleekness to some episodes, but those situations are reeled in a different direction before they become depressing. I think the writers have done an awesome job of characterizations. From the boss to the brother you start to see different levels of characters. It goes beyond the court room setting and into the humanity of law. The schism of morality in life and culture finds its character in the firm. It interests me because of that.
Big Band Theory is very clever and it's only down fall is it is relying too heavily on Shelden's character this season. Right now that is ok, but I can see problems in the future when Penny and Leonard eventually hook up again.
