TV Review: “The Booth at the End”

I found Booth to be strangely compelling. I didn’t know how much I would like it when I first started watching, but it caught me right from the start. Though the writing is deliberately obfuscatory at first — sometimes annoyingly so — it distills down to the reality of the situation pretty quickly, and by the end of the second episode you’re not quite sure just how much power The Man really has… and just how much of the truth he’s telling his clients. All you know is that Xander Berkeley, for all his scruffy, everyman look, has one hell of a disturbing smile.
