TVWW: Gotta read these!
November 21, 2010  | By Diane Werts
 
PEOPLE-who-shot-jr.jpgWe'd say the latest postings from our TVWW columnists have hit a home run -- except that one of these new must-reads is about football.

Of course, it's also about transgression and redemption, as reflected in Michael Vick's record-setting on-field performance at the same time a new book about his dogs demands our attention.

Another great column recalls the Who Shot JR? mania of 30 years ago this week -- a global craze the likes of which TV may never again generate.

Both columns are pegged to Sunday happenings, but columnists Eric Gould and Ed Martin move beyond those TV events to eloquently reflect on human failings, societal impact and more.

With so much richness to explore, it's worth scrolling all the way down the TVWW home page every day.

New columns get posted. Streaming video unreels with just a click. We track both the latest TV DVDs and also classics on sale or in the limelight. We connect you to the coolest (other) TV sites. There's even RANDOM LINK AMAZEMENT!

Just this weekend, TV WORTH BUYING recommended a Doctor Who DVD set that tied together all kinds of TV threads -- Bianculli was writing about Craig Ferguson's late-night tribute to the series, and the DVD's star, Christopher Eccleston, was playing John Lennon in Sunday's PBS Masterpiece drama.

Count on TVWW to find those connections.

And ignore Jersey Shore!
