Complex.com: Bianculli's Blog is Television Criticism Worth Reading
April 5, 2013  | By About TVWW
 

Guess who's on the list of the 25 Best TV Bloggers Right Now, which was released by the culture and entertainment website Complex.com on April 4, 2013. (It's no surprise to fans of TV Worth Watching.)

Complex contributor Brenden Gallagher wrote: "In addition to coverage of House of Cards and Homeland on Bianculli's blog, you'll also find coverage of PBS and various miniseries that you won't find on blogs that are more dependent on advertiser dollars. With the principles and dusty puns that you'd expect from a college professor, Bianculli's blog is television criticism worth reading."

Principled? Resolutely. But, another pun bites the dust? Never!

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 $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
