The opening of this book is an attention getter, simply because of the tone of Zoller’s voice. In it you can hear his vigor and humor. This is a book that you would think of as interesting, but the authors make it an exciting read as well. The authors talk in specifics of full seasons of a TV show as compared to a pantheon of shows. Hence a numerical value, but subjective, so not perfect. This does not include the totality of global shows. There is a pdf accompanying the audiobook for those who would like to read the details or use it for a college report.

These two authors must have had blast debating their favorites during their initial years as they worked together. When they decided to get together and write this book, it had to look like Siskel and Ebert in rewind. One of the special sections outside of the main competition is, best apartment, best death, etc. Now you see the fun in it.

If you like TV, get this book. It is light, exuberating, and comedic in nature. You will be the hit at parties with a superfluous mega of information.

Oh, and watch out for their next in series, Children’s shows!
