‘Meadowlands’ Better than ‘Sopranos’!

And oddly, enough, the critics spoke and they are correct, sir. We watched four episodes of this Brit-set, hour-long madness back to back, and are as hooked as a muskellunge to a sturgeon��������or something. There are no fish in the percolators, but man�������on what other show can you see a rapist try to sodomize a teenage transvestite? They’re interrupted by the young he-she��������s father��������um��������who’s then strangled to death by the attacker! And then he��������s faced with a stranger from his past, wielding a knife?! The show is about a community populated by neighbors who are all in the Witness Protection Program. No one is safe. We��������ll have to start TiVo-ing �������Entourage������� to watch this instead. It has moments of sheer, crazy brilliance, and the music selections are as bizarre as anything Angelo Badalamenti dreams up for Lynch. The actor��������s are all new faces. And while there��������s a bit too much of The Stepford Wives scenario thrown in��������why is everything so �������dark������� these days?��������it��������s an original, at least to Showtime, which really is giving HBO a run. That��������s all! ��������Staff
