funny trawl through T.V.
Knowing A.A Gill through his food critic position at the Sunday Times I chanced upon this, a volume of his T.V. criticism. In contrast to his claim that he is a lover of television in the introduction he then proceeds to demolish just about everything in his path as a reviewer as unworthy, whether its soaps, sport, period drama, or sitcoms. This only makes it more readable and confirmed not a few of my own prejudices about the medium in often a very funny way. Although a lot of the material in this volume dates from the beginning of the 2000's its still well worth the ride.

This collection of some of the best writing from his columns is broken down into themes - Sport, Costume Drama, Detectives, Children's Television, and News. And now it's over to A.A.

That's no small achievement. Television really does make a difference...It can bring down walls, save lives and right wrongs. It can also tell you how to put a water feature on your patio...'
