I’m not likening the end of TVWW’s 14-year run to the end of life as we knew it… Where daily newspapers and magazines were once the nexus of TV criticism, it seems fair to say this is another reminder that a torch is passing...(continued)

I did not have a TV when I grew up. The family moved from city to city, country to country — a life on the road, constantly on the move. I have vague recollections of Doctor Who playing — in flickering black-and-white — in a tiny room in a tiny house during one early childhood memory, but I don't remember much about it, except that I'm pretty sure that incarnation of the Doctor was played by Jon Pertwee and I was terrified of the Daleks...(continued)

By now, way too many TV memories are taking up space in my mind.

They leave little room for anything else, except movie plots and Cubs' batting averages. But one vivid memory is basic – a show in which a man simply played records...(continued)

There has never been a showcase for smart television criticism quite like TVWW...I may never have to get used to a world without I Love Lucy, but I can't say the same about TVWW. I'm going to have to get used to that. Sort of...(continued)

For me, David Bianculli on "Best TV Tomorrow" was TV Worth Watching. 

It was fun streaming along, seeing if David knew what day it was, watching him build to a terrible pun. Every show ending with that Mickey Rooney grin. It was a minute or two with a friend, delivered every day to my inbox. For free!...(continued)

Hey mister,

Please stop trying to advertise on this web page! I am the self-appointed defender of the wall here, while David is on his little sabbatical. He wouldn't allow this kind of advertising, so I must ask you to stop!

The ProDentim dental probiotic supplement is a special blend of 3.5 billion nutrients.

How Does ProDentim Dental Supplement Work?

To know if ProDentim works or not, you will need to understand the working principle of the formula. In general, dental items, such as toothpaste and mouthwash, will generally be loaded with harmful substances. These elements can cause bad breath, oral cavity and destroy the tooth enamel.

In fact, some toothpaste will have more fluoride than others. Although they will target to offer shiny and healthy teeth, a higher amount of fluoride can cause tooth decay and oral infections. Many can not even correctly eliminate sugary foods' residues from the teeth' surface.

BIANCULLI’S thoughts are very enlightening. I remember once when I was looking for a programming script on youtube to solve a bug and an insight from him helped me to solve it. Python for example is very useful.

If you'd like to create embroidery that is unique and inexpensive, consider making your pattern. With a little prep and a few supplies that you may already have, you can use your Computer to transfer an image of the tissue.

Many recent movies and documentaries have addressed issues related to bitcoin and web3.0. Some examples of movies that have reviews are banking on bitcoin, crypto (2019), cryptopia, trust machine: the story of blockchain, the rise and rise of bitcoin, netflix explained: cryptocurrency. New documentaries should be released in 2022 and 2023. For those who are interested in learning more about crypto, creating an account on the Kucoin exchange is a good idea, because of every 4 cryptocurrency users, 1 has an account on Kucoin.
Ben Dover
Definitely not interested in Kuku-coin, but sure would like to see David return with the occasional post. How about sharing your take, David, on Better Call Saul?

Crowdfunding is an increasingly common practice for raising money to make movies. Directors who do not have sponsors or smaller studios can start their filming with few resources through community help. There have already been some successful films and cases with this methodology. One low-budget film, for example, is Primer, which cost about $7,000 alone. This amount can be raised by crowdfunding.
