This medical-ethics drama is like a sustained assault on the tear ducts. ,/p>
Abigail Breslin plays Anna, an 11-year-old girl who's kept her leukaemic sister (Sofia Vassilieva) alive through lymphocytes and bone-marrow transplants. Her parents want Anna to donate her kidney, and she's not going to let them – indeed, she hires a lawyer (Alec Baldwin) to win her "medical emancipation". Based on a Jodi Picoult bestseller, this is all of a tremble with big issues and major confrontations, most of them centred on Cameron Diaz's control-freak mom, and I found myself not believing a minute of it.

"Working with celebrities and their egos is no fun. But as much as I hated doing this book, I thank God that I did, because their stories are the most powerful messages you will ever hear," says Christopher Kennedy Lawford.

"This is a proper, old-fashioned, character-based, gag-a-minute sitcom – something UK TV's been sadly lacking of late. Indeed, with the possible exception of 'Gavin & Stacey', it's hard to think of a recent home-grown comedy that makes you laugh out loud in the way that '30 Rock' does – and with no laugh track either." - Jane Murphy, www.orange.co.uk/ entertainment/

Fifty years ago it was cowboys that stood tall in American television. Three out of five Emmy nominations for Best Dramatic Series were cowboy shows and virtually all the top rated series at the time were westerns. These days, if the latest Emmy nominations are any guide, office politics is the new frontier. With Mad Men picking up 16 nominations, 30 Rock scooping 17 and Damages and the American version of The Office also in the running for America's top broadcasting awards, the definition of watercooler television increasingly describes programmes for which the props department have to go out and find a watercooler.
