"First-rate writing and thinking. TASTELAND reads like a pop history of the last 15 years of American life, and Aaron Barnhart is just the wide-ranging, no-B.S. free thinker you want to guide you through them." --James Poniewozik, TIME
"A fantastic flashback to the past 15 years of television. Aaron Barnhart cuts a broad swath through prime-time, late night, cable, PBS, documentaries, you name it. And beyond the history, his list of the 100 best shows of the past 15 years is essential viewing for anyone who has missed TV's new golden age. No fan or student of the medium should pass up TASTELAND." --Jason Snell, editor of Macworld and TeeVee.org
