This Is Jeopardy

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book!, July 1, 2006

This review is from: This Is Jeopardy: Celebrating America’s Favorite Quiz Show (Paperback)

I found the This is Jeopardy! book in a box where a lot of books are in. I’m a book vendor at the flea market in my hometown. When I got a chance to read it, it was really good. I especially liked the old pictures from that show’s past seasons. In the first four seasons of Jeopardy, I wasn’t born yet and I didn’t remember those episodes, but it was great seeing what that show was like in the past. I wish more TV game shows like Wheel of Fortune would come out with books like this one.


My Greatest Day in Show Business

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, Candid, Sincere, January 9, 2000

This review is from: My Greatest Day in Show Business: Screen Legends Share Their Fondest Moments (Paperback)

“Entertaining, Candid, Sincere,and Unique” is how I describe this book. The stories in “My Greatest Day in Showbusiness” are remarkable. The “information” one reads in gossip columns (or books sold for shock value) doesn’t even come close to giving a glimpse of who famous people really are. This did. Here we have integrity and entertaining reading at once. Refreshing.

This review is from: My Greatest Day in Show Business: Screen Legends Share Their Fondest Moments (Paperback)

I was at a seriously stuffy dinner party last week, and most of us did not know one another. It seemed no one could break the ice. Someone mentioned Jerry Springer for some reason, and after “normal opinions” were voiced, I related some of the highlights of his interview that are in this book. What a conversation we had because of what I’d read! Everyone ended up talking (sometimes over one another) and we forgot we were strangers. I just had to say thank you. I’m very glad I had read this book. It was most enlightening to be audience to legends we know by face and name, baring their souls about who they really are, and what has shaped them.

“My Greatest Day in Show Business” gave me a feeling of really understanding the seventy-five stars that were interviewed. Their frank answers made them “knowable” and “real”. Also, this book gave me an understanding of the kind of work, thought and care they pour into their careers. I’ve never really understood Hollywood before, but now I’m really starting to appreciate the show-biz work environment. I was inspired, delighted, taken aback, touched, and moved, as these celebrities revealed personal thoughts, opinions and stories. The stars have come down to Earth. I’ll never look at them the same, again. A very good book! <

TV Moms

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE MY “TELEMOMS!”, May 10, 2000



This review is from: Tv Moms (Paperback)

Do you wear pearls and heels to sweep the floors? ; ) Me? I’m more like Peg Bundy! Well maybe not *that* bad! TV Moms: An Illustrated Guide” is such a GREAT little book! There’s almost every TV MOM you can think of in this book and some you may have forgotten. I know I had forgotten some of these moms and it was great to “see” them again! I highly recommend this book because it follows women as they changed through the decades and I found it more insightful than any sociology textbook could EVER be! This is a fun and interesting book and even my kids like reading it too.

TV Moms is an illustrated guide which is packed with black and white photos revealing the programs and shows which created images of mothers for television audiences. From the black working single mother portrayed in Julia to Edith Bunker in All in the Family and Carol Brady in The Brady Bunch, TV Moms examines the images and roles represented by television mothers.

The Simpsons

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY – HIGH QUALITY SIMPSONS MERCHANDISE, December 26, 1999


Stefano Buatti (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This review is from: The Simpsons: A Complete Guide to Our Favorite Family (Paperback)

If you’re a die-hard fan like me and want to know every little hidden secret in each episode, then this book is for you. I wouldn’t recommend it for the person that catches an episode of Simpsons whenever they can. This book is so full of trivia tid-bits that you can rest assured that many Simpson newsgroups popped up after the release of this book. Each episode has one or two pages dedicated to it and on these pages you will find, the episode’s technical details, a synopsis of the episode, memorable quotes from memorable characters, chunks of “must-memorise” dialogue, film/literary/historical references, and “What You Might Have Missed” – a section of little hidden jokes. Apart from the episode guide there is a list of Homer’s “Mmmms”, a list of Homer’s “Doh’s”, all the couch gags, all of Bart’s blackboard writings, a list of the cast and what voices they do, a list of the signs seen in Springfield, a list of Krusty merchandise, an episode guide for the 42 Simpson shorts seen on the Tracey Ullman show, and an episode guide for The Itchy and Scratch Show. This is NOT one of those 15 page black and white books printed on recycled newspaper with illegible writing and blurry images. This is a high-quality publication from Matt Groening himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have!, January 13, 2002


J. N. Mohlman (Barrington, RI USA) – See all my reviews

This review is from: The Simpsons: A Complete Guide to Our Favorite Family (Paperback)

“The Simpsons: A Complete Guide to Our Favorite Family” is a must have for any fan of The Simpsons. It is loaded with episode information, inside jokes, quick gags you might have missed and abundance of quotes. It is great to have handy while watching the show, but it is equally fun to just thumb through; surprisingly, the Simpson family is almost as funny in synopsis format as it is on TV.

Furthermore, this isn’t just some cheap volume thrown together to make a quick buck. It is printed on high quality paper, in full color, and the stills from the episodes are beautifully rendered (not like the grainy images you frequently see in TV and movie tie-ins). Also, while it may not seem significant, each episode is described using standardized “blocks” (synopsis, Stuff You May Have Missed, etc.) so it is very east to quickly find information about a specific episode. Finally, now that each season is being released on DVD, this book becomes even more useful as it acts as a companion piece to the discs.

This book is great fun, high quality, and a must have for any Simpsons-a-holic.
