RETURN TO LONESOME DOVE
November 26, 2012  | By David Bianculli

Encore, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
Part 1 of 4. This 1993 sequel to the 1989 miniseries Lonesome Dove has two drawbacks: Robert Duvall’s character from the first miniseries is dead, and Tommy Lee Jones’ character of Woodrow F. Call is played, this time around, by Jon Voight. But Rick Schroder is back as Newt, and other new Dove players this time around, in a story that’s less not as epic as the original but still is worth watching, include William L. Petersen, Dennis Haysbert and Reese Witherspoon.

Good news, TVWW readers: An advance copy of David’s upcoming book from Doubleday has just arrived! The Platinum Age of Television: From I Love Lucy to The Walking Dead, How TV Became Terrific is now available on Amazon for pre-order for its November 15th release. You can read some of the dustcover summary here, including: “Darwin had his theory of evolution, and David Bianculli has his. Bianculli's theory has to do with the concept of quality television: what it is and, crucially, how it got that way. In tracing the evolutionary history of our progress toward a Platinum Age of Television,…he focuses on the development of the classic TV genres, among them the sitcom, the crime show, the miniseries, the soap opera, the Western, the animated series and the variety show. David Bianculli's book is the first to date to examine, in depth and in detail and with a keen critical and historical sense, including exclusive and in-depth interviews with many of the most famed auteurs in television history.” —TVWW
