One of my favorite TV-related sites has been TV-tome (www.tvtome.com). This site had a great user interface, a huge database of TV shows, episode lists and episode summaries. The operative word is “had.”
TV-tome has apparently been purchased. The domain now forwards to TV.com, which is part of the CNet empire.
The new site has a lot more information and a lot of pictures. It is also a lot less user-friendly, with Macromedia Flash on the page and a very awkward (there’s that word again) user interface.
Regardless, it is a pretty good site for researching a TV show. I went there tonight to check out “The 4400,” which is a science fiction show on USA.
Somehow, I missed the entire second season. I found out about it last week when someone mentioned that the season finale was coming up. I promptly set my home theater pc to automatically record it whenever it is on. Luckily, not only was the season finale coming, USA started repeating the episodes in a different time slot this week.
I checked TV.com to see which episodes I had recorded and found that one was “season 2 number 1.” Hurray for the HTPC!
