Some useful blogs

Would that I had the time and resources (and money) to do this full-time and provide the very best service possible to all you lovely guys and gals. However, life is short, so I can’t. Ho hum.

The most notable and obvious gap in this ‘ere blog is that here I am, reviewing plenty of US TV for y’all in the UK so that you know what to keep your eyes peeled for, and then I leave you high and dry by not telling you when it’s going to air in the UK. Which is rubbish, I know, but c’est la vie.

So let me point you in the direction of some people who are far more helpful than me at pointing out what US (and UK) TV is worth watching each week:

  • Dan’s Media Digest : He writes reviews, he looks at the UK and US box offices each week and he also lets you know what to look out for on tele – he’s Dan Owen
  • TV Today: As well as reviews and previews, TV Today also has regular commentary on the news by The Stage‘s expert TV watchers Scott Matthewman and Mark Wright – sometimes they even break news as well – and the twice-weekly “Square Eyes
  • TV Spy: Totally US-in-the-UK TV-focused, this is put together by the people at TV & Satellite Week and always gives you the heads-up on what’s coming out in the UK soon and what’s hot in the US right now as well as news and clips.

Of the things to watch out for right now, I’d say keep your eyes peeled next Saturday, because the generally excellent spy show Burn Notice, which even gets its own tag here, starts at 9pm on FX (aka “The channel that shows all the really good US stuff, but no one can get, let along watch”). I found that out from Dan.
