As compared to what? America's next top model? The real Housewives of..., Survivor?, Big Brother?, Law and Order SVU? Hostages? The Following?, Major Crimes (a dud since the departure of Kyra Sedgwick in my opinion), and others I can think of.
At least this show some grit and humor along with some cool tech.
Not to belittle the author of the article, but for me, what better food is there than Pizza. Pizza is my favorite of all foods. I've eaten Pizza in more than 7,000 locations around the globe since early 50's
That being said Italian, Japanese, Chinese, BBQ and other foods follow as close seconds and thirds.
I like this show, it's a real treat.
This is what makes life so interesting. Opposites.
I love this actress, I love her on screen presence, the way she brings the character to life and the way she looks.
I like this show, but the writing can be a little campy. I say that because I've been around more than 6 decades, I have seen a lot of stuff on movies and TV.
There have been times I thought about scrapping the show from my list, but I like the characters. The writing can be weak at times and too far over the top.
Just one example. Nikita gets shot in the car; she drives; she's passing out and crashes the car BUT she has enough energy to ditch the car and start walking away? Running is 1000 times more difficult in her condition than sitting and moving a steering wheel.
Remember Percy's Plexiglas lock up at Division? It had everything but a toilet.
Most wanted woman in the world? Not hardly. The people in Iran (if it were true) would be cheering her.
But all that aside, I still watch the show even though it annoys me sometimes.
It was a smartly written show. Kristen Bell did a remarkable job in bringing a sense of believability to the character without being campy. Enrico Colantoni was also brilliant in his role as was the rest of the cast. It was a fun ride.
I haven't read up on the movie version but is Veronica (7 years older) still in High School?
It's amazing how two people can be so opposite.
I was thinking how refreshing it was that the cheesy theme song was gone.
White Collar has the most irritating theme I've ever heard. It's a mute button every time.
Covert Affairs seems more sophisticated without it. Theme songs are sooo yesterday.
The Neighbors added a theme; it's cheesy.
A 1:30 Theme (Gilligan's for example) x 16 episodes x 7 seasons = 2hrs 48 min missing story content.
I like it when shows don't use them such as Revenge, OUAT, Nikita, Nashville, Arrow, Revolution, The Mentalist, The Blacklist, Witches of East End, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Chicago Fire, etc.
If you want a theme play it at the end over the credits.

She should have shot him in the head as she was leaving. I hope "Henry" doesn't make a surprise comeback, that would be awful.
normally I agree with you about long story arcs. I don't think a show can be consistently good without them. But, there is a point when a long story arc can go over the top towards the point of being ridiculous.
Annie killed Henry, there was no arrest, no justice system, no lawyers, no prosecutors and no judges ... just Annie.
It was a fitting end, but it was something I was saying to myself for about 5 episodes now and that was "Just shoot the bastard!"
What a fantastic end to a really great story arc.
The only complaint I have is that Annie knew her image had been plastered all over the city. Why didn't she ditch her coat and grab a wig or a hat or a scarf to change her appearance. It would only have taken seconds to change it enough for her to move a little more freely.
I would have shot Henry in the head as I walked by - just to make sure. I kept thinking that he was playing possum in the alley.
I like this show.
