An Airing of Grievances

Ah Festivus, that holiday for the rest of us.  Break out your Aluminium Poles.  Time for the airing of the grievances of which one constant on my list is the laziness and vapidity of TV programming.

I’m not kidding when I say I consider these pieces a public service.  They take a ton of research (an average Prime Time takes 90 minutes and has 40+ links).

And you have to keep your blog busy and readers distracted.

I’m trying new Tools which will hopefully keep things a little more organized but I’m not expecting much.

It’s a fairly normal Thursday night so we’ll be picking it up at 6 am for early risers and running 24 hours.

As always-

It’s arranged by time and marathons (4 half hour episodes, 3 hour episodes, double features, themes, and Instapeats) may be noted earlier than you expect, but they do also include the running time so you know when they end.

You may notice not a lot from the broadcast and other networks.  That’s because they’re going with regular programming (except for maybe Holiday Episodes) as far as I can tell.  The usual tools are available for broader choices-
