Changes Are Coming to This Site... Glacially, but Surely
March 19, 2008  | By David Bianculli
 
I'm so grateful, truly, for every single one of you who takes the time to visit this site, that I want to apologize for the delays in making TV WORTH WATCHING every bit as dynamic and interactive as originally envisioned. But we're getting there... or, at least, getting closer.

jukebox.jpgThe general comments you've been sending -- "Why not make your blog searchable?" and "Do you have a RSS feed for your site?," for example -- are both welcome and smart. Both a search device and an RSS feed are pretty high up on the triage list, along with making the comments on the new FEEDBACK and TV JUKEBOX pages (which I'm very proud of, by the way) readable as part of the entries, as they are on the BLOG pages.

Once these things are done, DVD and book reviews will be updated regularly again, and the INTERVIEW page -- occupied, since the site's launch, by the same George Lucas Q&A -- will be replaced by a new feature.

Some good news: I've gotten approval from the New York Daily News, my former employer, to continue asking for and publishing EXTRAS -- hidden in-jokes in TV shows -- on TV WORTH WATCHING. Once we get the FEEDBACK stuff working right, that'll be the next addition. Also, it's quite possible we may add a new critical voice or two soon... and, beginning in June, we'll have our first official advertiser. More on that later.

But for now, let me thank, once again, Eric Gould and Chris Spurgeon, who respectively designed and implemented the site since its launch, and now Rich Baniewicz, who is my new website guru and overly patient collaborator. He's the one stuck with implementing all the ideas... and what I've learned, since launching this site in November, is that ideas are easy. Computer programming is hard.

This is a mom and pop operation right now, but with no mom, and pop is pooped. Please bear with me... I've survived the death flu, so updating TV WORTH WATCHING, and getting better about sending blast emails and stuff, is next on the agenda. Thanks for your patience, and your presence.

Anyone who survived "The Winds of War" can conquer anything. Take strength from these inspirational words:

"This house is clean!"

David, whether you or your readers know it or not, you already have an RSS feed, of sorts. I have been following your posts in Google Reader for a couple of months now. All I had to do was enter the URL in the subscription box and Voila! it found the feed.

I really enjoy the posts BTW.

Have Fun!
Mike (Geez, you're smart. Pass it on. And thanks. --David B)
