Still more 'The Revolution Was Televised' link-blogging
Once again, time for links to recent reviews and interviews about my book, "The Revolution Was Televised: The Cops, Crooks, Slingers and Slayers Who Changed TV Drama Forever." (The last batch of links is here.) As always, you can find lots more information about the book at AlanSepinwall.com, and buy it in paperback, for Kindle, Nook, iBooks and Kobo.
In terms of interviews, I reunited with my old partner Matt Zoller Seitz for an epic (10 pages) conversation about the book, the shows in it, and the era that made them possible. And today I made my first appearance in a while on The B.S. Report with Bill Simmons to talk about the book (which was semi-inspired by a previous Simmons podcast with Chris Connelly), "Homeland," and more.
Glad to see the reaction has been so positive so far. As always, if you have questions, feel free to add them to the comments here or shoot me an email.
