tv schedule


Someone just pointed out that I never did link to my Fall 2002 TV Schedule Grid thingie from this weblog, at least not this fall. It's got the fall schedule, plus premiere dates for everything and I think it's pretty darn handy if I do say so myself.

I sortof forget and sometimes assume that if you're reading this weblog, you're also reading my TV picks, but I know that's not always the case.

tv cd and dvds

Woohoo! Rhino Records is releasing Our Little Corner Of The World: Music from Gilmore Girls. Excellent. More information is available on the Rhino site. The great music (and great way people talk about music) is one of the reasons Gilmore Girls is my favorite show.

If you like Xena, you'll be pleased that the first season is gonna be available on DVD by the end of November.

warren zevon

Bad news: Warren Zevon has untreatable lung cancer.

Zevon sez: ""I'm OK with it, but it'll be a drag if I don't make it until the next James Bond movie comes out."

alton brown

Alton Brown interview at Slashdot. Cool!

Y'all have visited Alton's website, haven't you? www.altonbrown.com. And you watch Good Eats? It's one of the best shows on TV. I envy any of you that have Alton's book (I'll get a copy for myself someday, I'm sure).

lileks on sept 11 2002

James Lileks, regarding September 11, 2002:

It was a good day. We had an Indian meal, assembled from the shelves of the pungent market down the street. We drew on the sidewalk with chalk, we went to the park to play. Jasper ran after rabbits while I weeded the lawn. I went to the office for a while, and when I went outside to think about the column I watched hundreds of citizens stream to the Metrodome to watch baseball and attend the memorial. No fear on anyone's face. And if you walked close enough to the Dome you could hear the crowd inside roar - not for blood, not for vengeance, not for death and fire, but for baseball. That was 9/11, 2002. I curse the terrorists for their horrible triumphs, but those bastards cannot even begin to count the ways in which they failed.

tv picks

Special edition of TV Picks today. There's one version that covers the coverage of the 9/11/01 anniversary, another version that spotlights what's on TV that isn't focused on that sort of thing.

I put a lot of work into it, hope you find it useful.

onion re sept 11 tv

I love The Onion. Especially this piece titled "Who Will Bring Closure To A Grieving Nation?" A taste of it:

Will it be a major network like CBS that heals us, salving our wounds with its around- the-clock, Dan Rather-hosted coverage? Or will it be a cable channel like CNN, its crack team of veteran telejournalists guiding us to a place of rebirth and renewal as only a 24- hour news network can? Or will it be a surprise young upstart like MTV, speaking to our hearts in a way foreign to its stodgier counterparts?

Farscape has been cancelled. I reported on this at tvpicks.net, but figure I should mention it here, too. If you love the show and want to keep it on the air, act fast. Though it doesn't look like there's much hope . . . the sooner people act, the better. More info.
