I am a regular buyer of books through Edward R. Hamilton. Often I find some great selections at great prices. Some excess book printings can be found at outstanding price reductions from the original price. Some received books are so so. Others are pleasant surprises. This book was a nice surprise. It catalogs every TV show series from the start of TV programming. Each entry includes a basic show description, evolution of changes from season to season, major characters, cast breakdowns, dates of the show by season and more.

Extra tables and references in the back of the book are also excellent including the prime time lineup of TV shows by year. I enjoyed reviewing the original show evening lineups from the mid to late 1960's. The same shows were the reruns of the 1970's.

This is the type of book you pick up out of curiosity then 2 hours later you realize you other things you need to do. Flipping through book will make you remember shows and personalities of the past. You will find yourself cross referencing like crazy to satisfy your desire to recall TV shows you have all but forgotten.

My book is only up through about 2000. If this book is regularly updated, it is probably growing in size or shrinking in font. A fun book. ( )
