I have a new favorite prime-time drama: Sidney Lumet's "100 Centre Street." Yes, that Sidney Lumet, the 76-year-old director of such splendid feature films as "Serpico"; "12 Angry Men"; and "Dog Day Afternoon." He created this exquisitely stark series about the grit and grind, life and death, inside New York City's criminal courts at 100 Centre Street. It's A&E's first weekly drama, and I hope it runs forever. The series is so dark it's almost film noir, from the lonely jazz trumpet notes wafting over the opening credits to the deadly consequences that result when characters give in to their passions.
