The way it's organized, you can skip chapters of shows you haven't seen, if you think you'll watch that show in the future and want to avoid the spoilers.

The book is excellent as a chronicle of changing TV from Hill Street Blues and NYPD Blue to the present day.  He looks at the series from the creator/writer/show runner's point of view, making it more than a spoiler-filled exposition of what happened in the series, but rather why the creator/writer/show runner made the critical decisions that determined the direction of the series. 

Also it's self-published by Sepinwall which I find brave and intriguing.

Onward with Shakespeare, continuing what I attempted to start last year. Only got through Romeo & Juliet then before getting distracted from wanting to read.

Read this today while waiting in jury duty today (finished it literally right before I was called):



I give it a billion stars. Not Albee's best, but still fantastic. He's a genius.

You know what's better than watching Iranian movies? Reading about them!
