Crime drama embraced its own ridiculousness as first season went along
"Banshee," the Cinemax crime drama that wraps up its first season tonight at 10, is among the dumbest, most ridiculous, lurid, disgusting shows on all of television.
That is also an enormous part of its charm.
What comes next for the campaign? How big can the movie get? And whither Piz?
The "Veronica Mars" movie Kickstarter campaign was an instant, runaway success, raising the $2 million minimum to make the movie in under 12 hours, with the total continuing to climb. (It passed $3 million earlier this evening.) But the process to get to this point took much longer for the show's creator, Rob Thomas. He had all but given up on getting a "Veronica" movie made, even cheaply — "Warner Bros. is typically in the business of making big-budget movies," he explains. "'Small' for them is a $30 million movie, and I understand why the 'Veronica Mars' movie didn't fit into that paradigm" — until his friend, Cotton Mather lead singer Robert Harrison, suggested he try Kickstarter.

A musical episode shows how far the ABC comedy has come from its humble beginnings
When "The Neighbors" premiered back in the fall, I found the pilot so disheartening that I ultimately didn't even review it, choosing to devote my limited time in premiere week to shows I either liked or that at least had the potential for growth. I didn't see any in a show that leaned so heavily on gags like naming all the aliens after famous athletes.
I watched another couple of episodes (the shopping mall trip and Halloween) later in the fall, each of which showed signs of becoming something I wouldn't hate, and I made a mental note to come back later in the season to see what "The Neighbors" had become.
And with the musical-themed "Sing Like a Larry Bird," it looks like I picked a very good week to check back in. This wasn't a "good by 'Neighbors' standards" sitcom episode. This was a good sitcom episode, no other qualifiers needed.
