Ghostly shadows flicker across the screen. Colors flow and merge while, in another, later time, a small girl wakes in hospital from a coma. Malala Yousafzai, now a teenager, remembers having terrible dreams, she tells us in a slow, halting voiceover...

I have seen the future, and it looks a lot like the TV-network equivalent of a murder-suicide pact. It was Sunday night, the most heavily viewed night of the TV week, and there was too much for the DVR to keep up with...

Good news, TVWW readers: David’s new book from Doubleday, The Platinum Age of Television: From I Love Lucy to The Walking Dead, How TV Became Terrific is available on Amazon for under $20.

Doubleday says: “Darwin had his theory of evolution, and David Bianculli has his. Bianculli's theory has to do with the concept of quality television: what it is and, crucially, how it got that way."

"The Platinum Age of Television is an effusive guidebook that plots the path from the 1950s’ Golden Age to today’s era of quality TV. For instance, animation evolved from Rocky and His Friends to South Park; variety shows moved from The Ed Sullivan Show to Saturday Night Live; and family sitcoms grew from I Love Lucy to Modern Family. A high point is the author’s interviews with Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Norman Lear, Bob Newhart, Matt Groening, Larry David, Amy Schumer and many others...Bianculli has written a highly readable history." —The Washington Post
