THE DAYS AND NIGHTS OF MOLLY DODD
April 17, 1989  | By David Bianculli  | 2 comments
 

(New York Post - April 17, 1989) Someday, if there is justice in the world, this brilliant Jay Tarses series will be a) released on DVD, and b) widely recognized as the true classic that it was. Molly Dodd was the missing link between The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Ally McBeal, and was every bit as good. And Blair Brown... in this show, she made me sigh.

Why aren't all old programs a viable via Amazon? I don't own a tv. So no cable eitherv. Want everything on demand
and can no longer follow or comprehend shows with commercials in them. I'd pay for this in a heartbeat. And I am an old gal..so tis not just millennials bless their heart.

Good news, TVWW readers: David’s new book from Doubleday, The Platinum Age of Television: From I Love Lucy to The Walking Dead, How TV Became Terrific is now available in paperback for under $15. Doubleday says: “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."

"The Platinum Age of Television is an effusive guidebook that plots the path from the 1950s’ Golden Age to today’s era of quality TV. For instance, animation evolved from Rocky and His Friends to South Park; variety shows moved from The Ed Sullivan Show to Saturday Night Live; and family sitcoms grew from I Love Lucy to Modern Family. Interviews with Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Norman Lear, Bob Newhart, Matt Groening, Larry David, Amy Schumer are high points... Bianculli has written a highly readable history." —The Washington Post
