A look back at TV dramas from 'Sopranos' through 'Breaking Bad' will go on sale around Thanksgiving
Over the last year and change, you may have noticed an occasional mysterious allusion to some project I was working on but wasn't ready to discuss. Well, today I am very proud to announce that it's my new book, "The Revolution Was Televised: The Cops, Crooks, Slingers and Slayers Who Changed TV Drama Forever."
An unexpected reference to another show highlights an uneven episode
Firewall & Iceberg Podcast, episode 156: 'Witness,' 'Wedding Band,' 'The Walking Dead,' 'Homeland' & more
Dan and Alan also discuss NBC's mid-season schedule, 'Nashville' and 'Last Resort'
A hurricane can postpone the Firewall & Iceberg Podcast, but Sandy couldn't stop it forever. After I spent the last week either powerless or as a nomad in the wilds of Connecticut, I was finally able to return home last night. In fact, the podcast was supposed to be finished yesterday, but midway through recording it, I got the call that our power was back on, and had to hastily pack up the family truckster for the drive home to Jersey, so we're technically reviewing HBO's excellent "Witness" a day late. That's what On Demand and HBO multiplex channels are for. In addition, Dan and I review TBS' "Wedding Band," discuss NBC's mid-season schedule, the "Up All Night" format change, how we feel about "Nahville" and "Last Resort" these days, and the latest episodes of "The Walking Dead" and "Homeland."
Victoria gives Ted an ultimatum, Barney gets a canine wingman, and Nick needs a catchphrase
Before we get to the reviewing, a bit of housekeeping — as in, my house finally got power, heat, cable, etc. last night, which meant we could return from our post-Sandy exile to the lovely, well-powered streets of West Hartford. There will be a podcast sometime later today (Dan and I were interrupted yesterday by the news that I could return home), and hopefully everything else will return to schedule (give or take a Nor'easter later in the week).
