Television Without Pity

I love TV. It's kind of embarrassing for an adult to get as excited about a new episode of Lost or How I Met Your Mother as I do. But the good people at the Television Without Pity understand where I am coming from. The website which features entertaining show recaps and forums where people like can obsess about how much they hated Dawson in each individual episode now has its own book. Much like the Roger Ebert Movie Glossary this book features funny entries on various characters (Dawson- for example) shows such as 90210 and various TV phenomenon such as "News, Crappy Local" all the while living up to their motto of "Spare the Snark, Spoil the Network"

Ooh, I love TV and TWOP too! Although it is a major time suck because their threads and recaps are sooo long. My current TV obsession is So You Think You Can Dance? Don't laugh, shuttsie! I know you like the Throwing Things blog and they love it too. I never, ever would have pictured myself as the target audience for dance, but there ya go, HOOKED for all three seasons. (Never did get into Dancing with the Stars, though). My favorite this season is definitely Sabra. I read that this book was coming out but forgot about it until now--I must get this.

Do you post in the forums? If so, what's your username? I'm a total lurker, not even registered.
