Not the fanciest looking website, but you'll find lots of
well-researched episode guides here for both obscure and popular TV shows of the
golden age of television.
site probably has more episode guides than any other site on the web. There are
plenty of bells and whistles, including Flash animation (which may make page loading
very slow if you don't have a brand new computer). The one caveat is that the
information isn't 100% reliable, and there's rarely any indication of where it
came from - although a careful review will tell you that much of it has been "borrowed"

in Chicago, this non-profit organization used to offer streaming video of classic
TV shows - everything from Dragnet to political events, to more modern
shows like CSI and ER. But the response was overwhelming and they
didn't have the resources to keep up, so they disabled this feature. There are

Stu Shostak, who's been selling classic TV shows for
decades through his Shokus Video company,
is the man behind this internet radio station for baby boomers. The station features
old time radio shows that went on to become TV shows, lots of music (big band,
adult contemporary, rock - even hip hop), and interviews with TV celebrities and
historians. Highly recommended.

and other forms of fantasy." Television/comic book writer Mark Evanier is
an expert on various topics, including television and animation, but the most
important reason to read his blog is that he's funny, provocative, and entertaining.
Also highly recommended.
