Format: Paperback
I liked this book. I especially liked that it wasn't preachy or telling me what is "quality". I want to enjoy TV and the writers wrote about the shows that meant something to them. It made me want to see shows that I hadn't given a chance before. I completely disagree with the other review.

Format: Paperback
First off, whoever came up with the idea for the little "heart" in the title had no idea how difficult that was going to make it for the individuals using search engines to locate this book.

Moving on, in the text's introduction, Matt Roush relates, "how strongly do people feel about their television shows?" the answer is this mixed bag of essays included here, written by various television critics on some of their favorite programs.

Some do their research quite well. Using a variey of sources and personal feelings, some essays are well done. Some cover a basic history, a "jump the shark moment," and some invaluable information, and others seem rather lackluster. There are a few that really need to be more focused on the shows themselves.

Highlights include Mr. Davi's appreciation for Fred Rogers, Jeff Gemmill's analysis of the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and surprisingly an emotionally effective piece on John Stewart's day after 9/11 on the Daily Show.

It might have helped if one could sense a bit more diversity of opinion here. Granted, the title is NOT, "I Hate Television," but one could stand to hear a bit more from people who might have more of a hate/love relationship with the tube. I found myself wishing I could argue with Mary Murphy on her article on the Rosanne program where the critic states, "television plays it too safe today," and I feel the exact opposite.

Hopefully, this is the first in a series of books by TV Guide. It would be nice to see more analysis on programs that deserve a second chance on DVD or rerun channels.

Sincerely,
JThree
