This is an excellent reference book for any tv show you can think of and some you never heard of. If you want to remember who played in a certain tv show or what tv shows a certain person played in, this is your book. Very thorough book. It dates back to the start of tv so it's good for your grandma and your grandchild as well. If you watch tv, I'd recommend this book.

I only read some contents in their entirety - skimmed others. This is an interesting collection of essays on the various aspects of the Gilmore Girls TV shows, some quasi-academic, some silly, some slightly psychological, some mostly media-focused. A good read for any true fan of the show, however.

I would never have bought this product if I had seen it in a store. It is difficult to use. All of the answers are in the back, and are almost impossible to read the question and keep up with the answers in the back. If it were made into a flip chart or on cards it woruld be much better.
You can start enjoying your new television with minimal setup, right out of the box. And you'll probably get a great picture, too. But your TV may not be optimized for the various video sources you're using. That's why it can be good to play around with your TV settings to find the best picture. It really is easy to tweak your TV. Here are some answers to some questions you may have.
One of the great things about high-definition television sets is that they are flat enough to mount easily on a wall. This can save a lot of space in your living room or bedroom that formerly would have been taken up by a giant tube television. It is important to note that not every television mount will be of the same quality. There are a number of things you need to consider before purchasing a TV wall mount.
While your television set may be the focal point of your home entertainment activities, what it sits on -- or in -- says a lot about who you are. Is your TV still sitting atop that beaten up particle board TV stand that you bought at a garage sale 10 years ago? Perhaps it's time to upgrade your living room furniture, starting with a new entertainment center. Home entertainment centers have been around a long time and have evolved quite a bit from the massive wooden cabinets of the 1960s and 1970s. Which entertainment center is right for you will depend on what you want to use it for, the components you want it to store and your personal taste in furniture.
You don't need to go to the movie theater to experience the full spectrum of video and surround sound that full-size theaters offer. Large, high-definition television sets are getting cheaper all the time, and Blu-ray discs reproduce films in crisp, clear picture, making home theater systems better than ever. But video is only part of the home theater experience. Adding a surround sound system to your home theater will make you feel like you're part of the action.
Watching movies, playing video games, enjoying the latest TV shows: When you're doing any of these things at home, you're looking at your television -- and whatever it sits on. A TV cabinet is furniture that is both functional and decorative. It will hold your media components and store some DVDs and games, too. To choose the best one for your living room, keep these tips in mind while you're shopping.

Many people love to collect favorite movies, programs and television shows on DVDs, whether it's a collection of classics, documentaries, children's movies or everything in between. Most people cherish their collection of DVDs, but you might not know it from the messy pile those DVDs make when shoved into a box or crammed haphazardly onto a shelf.

Some attractive media bookshelves can be a great place to start.
