TV Books They Wrote – Books on Sitcoms of the 1970s & 80s

Posted by / in Book Reviews / 2 comments

The Bradypedia: The Complete Reference Guide to Television’s The Brady Bunch by Erika Woehlk. There have been dozens of books written about The Brady Bunch and its many sequels, spin-offs, and reboots. This one is not the best and it’s not the worst. I’d say it falls somewhere in the middle.

Book Review: Three Good TV Reference Books

Posted by / in Book Reviews / 1 comment

The Case of the Alliterative Attorney: A Guide to the Perry Mason TV Series and TV Movies by Bill Sullivan and Ed Robertson.

Posted by / in Current Affairs / 2 comments

I can’t really collect my thoughts right now to express how much he meant to me…it’s not easy to type with tears in my eyes. He and Ernie Wallengren, who died way too young, were my mentors in the television business…and in so many other ways.

2016-2017 TV Season Review: NOTORIOUS and WESTWORLD

Posted by / in Television / 3 comments
