Television Without Pity

752 Things We Love to Hate (and Hate to Love) About TV

Details & Features

Calling all Dawson’s Creek fans! Television Without Pity features irreverent entries about the shows, characters, actors, clichés, plot devices, memorable moments, and catch phrases that make watching TV such a guilty pleasure. From weekend-long Real World marathons to the People’s Choice Awards, from favorite characters (Brenda Walsh, Seth Cohen) to the most unfunny recurring skits on Saturday Night Live, this is a celebration of television unlike any other.

Written by the creators of televisionwithoutpity.com (hailed by Entertainment Weekly as “the industry standard” for obsessive TV fanatics), this snarktastic volume features 100 illustrations and an encyclopedic two-column design. It’s great fun for nostalgic browsing and guaranteed to prompt more laughter than a whole season of Seinfeld.

TARA ARIANO (screen name “Wing Chun”) and SARAH D. BUNTING (screen name “Sars”) are the founders of TelevisionWithoutPity.com. Tara is the coauthor of Hey! It’s That Guy! (Quirk, 2005), and more of Sarah’s work can be seen at TomatoNation.com.
