Must-Watch TV

Jake Martin, SJ, our resident TV critic, offers his take on what TV Guide often calls "The Best Shows You're Not Watching."  If you've never seen any of them, or turn your nose up at the word sitcom, Martin, a teacher of theology and theater at Loyola Academy, in Wilmette, Ill., gives you plenty of reasons to tune in to three shows, the first of which you've probably seen, the second you might have been tempted to see, and the third you probably have avoided seeing because you think it's just for nerds.  But all--"30 Rock," "Parks and Recreation," and "The Big Bang Theory"--are worth a spot on your TV plate.  Read why in this online Culture piece 

James Martin, SJ
