I maintain we're in a new Golden Age of Television and have been for some time. We're see mini series of top quality, with motion picture level production values and acting and directing. And weekly series now are original, surprising, and in some cases astonishing.
When did it start?
As I look back, I think I became conscious of it
with Six Feet Under and Deadwood ---- that something remarkable was happening.
Deadwood pulled me in with Shakespearean quality acting.
When it comes to weekly series I've caught up slowly,
amazed at the inventiveness I'm seeing all around me.
Shows like Hell on Wheels, and Boss just didn't exist in the past, and even the more routine shows, White Collar, Perception, Person of Interest, reveal remarkable inventiveness.
I fear I've missed some of the transitional shows, now gone, that started this new Golden Age.
What do you think?
What the first really shocking new mini series of weekly series that you saw which seems beyond belief for TV?
Was it Pushing Daisies?
