Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
So, what's a poor viewer to do now that the Olympic Games are over and the political conventions have yet to start?
Well, Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky notes, Steven Bochco is coming back to weekly TV with something that might win a bit of attention. The producer who has given us the likes of "L.A. Law," "NYPD Blue" and "Over There" has a new series coming up on Sept. 1. It's called "Raising the Bar" and it will appear on TNT.
The show deals with lawyers and Sokolsky says it is going to seem quite familiar at times.
On the other hand, he points out, it is well acted and an advance look indicates it seems to improve each week.
And, Sokolsky adds, viewers should look closely at the way it fills and empties its courtrooms, employing a method that seems to be more "Star Trek" than "Perry Mason."
