    a whole other diary. For me recently, that was "Boss" starring Kelsey Grammar, on STARZ.

    Just two seasons, and it's gone. It was a grim, but oh so compelling show.  From the amazing credits and series intro music, and right through to every last dastardly detail, this show was fantastic.

    You may not like Kelsey Grammar for his politics, but he is absofreakinglutely brilliant as the protagonist of this series. If you get the chance to watch it, you'll appreciate how completely Grammar blows all memories of Frasier to the wind, and insists through the force of his acting talent, that you believe him in a totally different and polar opposite role---a difficult thing for any actor to do.

    I'm hoping maybe HBO or Showtime, networks with the muscle to market their shows, might pick up "Boss."  But I'm not holding my breath.  Still, even at just two seasons, this series was another amazing "TV" accomplishment.
