I don't usually review non-fiction books like this, but I'm a huge fan of TV shows, so Fantastic TV was a must read for me. It's a really well presented book, complete with black and white photographs and a lot more text than I expected.

Fantastic TV covers '50 years of cult fantasy and science-fiction', as the cover says. It covers everything from Lost in Space and Star Trek to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Supernatural. It even includes lesser known shows such as the short-lived Channel 4 vampir
Meh. It was like the people writing it couldn't decide on the format. So with some you got a history of the show, and with others you got some psycho-analytic essay.
