From the title, you might expect the ramblings of a couple of couch potatoes, but this book has a higher purpose in mind. It's an attempt at a critical encyclopedia of prime-time TV series and miniseries, from F Troop to Jewel in the Crown . In reality, then, these are not the authors' "favorite" shows, although they do provide critical rankings (zero to four stars), as well as cast lists, character names, descriptions, and numbers of episodes produced. The most valuable feature of the book is an index of programs available on videocassette, with distributors and their addresses. Otherwise, this volume adds little to the growing shelf of TV reference books.
