Ken Tucker, television critic at Entertainment Weekly for 14 years and now film critic for New York magazine, offers a batch of short pieces on what he admires and admonishes about the state of the small screen.

Chapters are no more than two or three pages and cover topic ranging from his favorite “Soprano” (Edie Falco), underrated and overrated sitcoms (“Buffalo Bill” and “MASH,” respectively) and the greatness of Paul Lynde.

Tucker’s opinion may not always comply with the readers’, but his passion for the subject is apparent in this light and enjoyable read for both the serious TV aficionado and the sometimes viewer.
