The Essential Ingredient . . .

This article in the New York Daily News gives praise where it's due. These are excepts from a long article. (I think we can forgive the misspelling in this observant writer's case, especially since it's correct later.)

This year, cable continued to deliver impeccably written dramas that present a level of truth unobtainable on broadcast television (thanks to meddling watchdog groups and their government bludgeon, the FCC). "Weeds," "Dexter" and "Brotherhood" on Showtime, "Rescue Me" and "The Shield" on FX and "The Wire" and "Big Love" on HBO all presented indelible portraits of the thorny side of life.

In the final episode of Showtime's "Brotherhood," Isaac's Michael Caffee was lying in a pool of blood, and the prognosis was bleak. But the actor has been signed for a second season, and it's a good thing, too, because Isaacs' volatile gang thug is the razor wire holding this great series together

:!: Good watching! It is nice to see that critics are able to see what we see in Jason's portrayals, even if we wish he would have other parts! Thanks for giving us this one. I try to watch Bhood at least one evening a week, and have found my favorite repeat episode is #5, the Baseball Team effort. Of course this has those nice, nice shots of Jason's tatoos, which does have something to do with my choice!
