Goodbye, Farewell And Amen

Posted on December 31, 2012 

If you don't recognize the headline for this blog, it was originally the title of the final episode of "MASH." (Still the highest rated program -- non-Super Bowl -- in the history of TV).

For me, it always conveyed a sense of relief for the characters who served three times longer in the fictional Korean War than the actual Korean War.

It conveyed a sense that it was time to move on.

I've been doing this blog -- going back to the old blogger site -- for about seven years, and it's time for me to move on. There's no particular reason, just my choice.

It's getting increasingly harder to find time to write it, not to mention that it's pretty difficult to come up with topics for at least four days a week for 50 weeks a year (yes, I updated the blog while I was on vacation; no, I didn't blog the two weeks I was on furlough). That's an awful lot of work for free, since I never got paid to do this.

I like to think I've amused and informed you loyal dozens, at least a little. I sat through a lot of bad TV pilots, like "Lipstick Jungle," so you wouldn't have to.

I like to think I've stirred at least a little debate as to what was the best and worst stuff on TV.

Anyway, this is the TVGuy signing off. May your clickers always have fresh batteries.
