NYTimes - almost 17 years
The best television series, it seems, come from somebody's personal experience or vision. Like Linwood Boomer's growing up as the smart one in a rowdy four-boy household, which turned into ''Malcolm in the Middle.'' Or whatever it is that inspired Chris Carter to create ''The X-Files,'' about F.B.I. agents, conspiracies and extraterrestrials.
