Bad TV: The Very Best of the Very Worst by Craig E. Nelson

Sure, we've all had a bad idea now and then. But that's no reason for My Mother, The Car, Pink Lady & Jeff, Manimal , or Cop Rock. Now Bad TV brings back all of those horrifying memories, those memories of utter hilarity, those magical times when you stared at your TV in complete disbelief. Filled with hours of reminiscences and plain old nastiness (all of it deserved), Bad TV doesn't waste its time on shows that are merely tedious, sickening, or poorly done. No, it showcases only remarkably bad, "I can't believe they did this!" television, with topics such as: Bad Classics—shows like The Brady Bunch, Green Acres, and Family Affair, that we were all so crazy about primarily because they were so empty-headed. Curses!—seemingly cursed actors such as Nancy Walker and Jack Scalia, who, though they tried their hardest, were destined never to have a hit series. How Could You?—an exploration of the unimaginable low moments of some of our favorite series: the "it was all a dream" episode on Dallas ; the time the Beverly Hillbillies solved the energy crisis. The Tammi Awards—names for Three Mile Island (T.M.I.), they're given to the all-time worse shows ever on television stupefying flops whose waste of talent, time, and money are so great, it's nuclear. Written by author, humorist, and television connoisseur Craig Nelson Bad TV is also an indispensable reference for too-bad-to-be-true videos that readers will want to rent right away.
