HELLO, and welcome to the world of Cobweb TV.
I define Cobweb TV as the hits (two TV seasons or more in duration), flops, specials, unsold pilots, TV movies and miniseries from the sixty-plus years of television broadcasting that have become increasingly forgotten by everyone but the most ardent of TV junkies and historians.

This writer will avoid one word when discussing these TV "footnotes": classic. The adjective is too easy attached to any item treasured by bloggers of pop culture, and I've been guilty of using it in the past. While it will be conceded several programs from TV's past are held in a higher esteem more than others (not necessarily award-winning or having cult status), even these critical darlings or ratings champs have their detractors. (Not everyone loves I Love Lucy.) Overall, an opinion is still an opinion, whether it's stated by one person or a convention hall full of critics. I will give each of these shows a fair shake and "call 'em as I see 'em", falling short of saying you-know-what in the process.

In closing, I must say the reason why it took so long before the posting of this first entry was because I got hit hard with a case of writer's block, aggravated by a lot of personal issues. (It all boils down to my being a shy guy who has to deal with social anxiety. I'm feeling better about myself, these days.) The fact I have written all of this is definitely a breakthrough for me; it may not be the best example of my writing abilities, but it is me. Hopefully, the intervals between postings won't be long ones.
NEXT TIME ON... COBWEB TV!
