For the past few years, as you know, I’ve been totally “out of it” when it comes to American television. By the time it came over to the Israel, the show was usually one to three years behind when they aired in the states. Or they would show the current popular trash rather than good quality television. It seems like good quality television is becoming harder and harder to find. Still, there would be TV listings for shows from the states I’d never heard of. So I needed a resource to find out about the shows to see if I would be interested in wasting my time on them.
For the past few years I’ve been relying upon a website called TV Tome to give me a decent synopsis and listing of characters and episodes to help me learn more. Now that I’m back in the states, I continue to use them to figure out what everyone is talking about.
Well, in the last month or so, TV Tome has a new look and new address: www.tv.com. How they managed to “buy”
tv.com is a wonder. Still, the new site has a much better upgraded look, highly graphical, but still stuffed with tons of advertising. It’s harder to move around all the new stuff to find the information you want, but it loads faster, and that’s a great improvement.
TV-Tome, now, TV.com, offers information on television shows by synopsis, episode lists, cast and crew, news, trivia, top episodes, and more. It’s easy to find information about when and where the shows are playing and what the current status of the show is. It is here I learned the horrible news that the new Star Trek show, Enterprise, was cancelled. Broke my heart, the narrow-minded television controlling bastards. It was just getting good as I finally caught up with the episodes since moving back to the states.
So if you are looking for free, fairly easy to read information about your favorite TV shows, or like me, want to know what the heck people are talking about, the old/new TV Tome or TV.com is a great resource. Keep up the great work, guys!
