The ABCs of storytelling - Zach Porter

Despite continuing forays into that cesspool of television some like to call "Reality TV," the ABC network has produced two exciting new hour-long fictional dramas with "Desperate Housewives" and "Lost." Right now these are the most exciting shows on television, trumping even the likes of HBO.
