Tuesday's Overlooked A/V: films, television and more...

La ragazza che sapeva troppo
The weekly assembly of links to blogposts, reviews, essays, podcasts and other items of interest about audio/visual work, usually first-rate and deserving of one's attention but sometimes less so and sometimes deserving of obscurity, up to and including opera, stage drama, conventions, museum exhibits, videogames (and boardgames), and more. Thanks to all who have produced the items linked to below! And please let me know if I've missed yours or someone else's.  

A useful resource I stumbled across the other week, but forgot to mention to those who might also be interested, Paul Di Filippo mentioned on a discussion list, an online archive of Broadcasting magazine, 1931-2002.  Todd Mason

Todd – Once again, thanks for the list. There are a lot of interesting posts here. I will be back tonight to dig in.

Todd Mason said...

Thank you, Elgin, not least for your own.

Jack Seabrook said...

Thanks, Todd. I'm going to go read that Avengers post!

Not exactly made for Tuesday's Overlooked, but I did post this recently:

Sergio (Tipping My Fedora) said...

Another awesome collection - and thanks for that link to Broadcasting magazine, which I shall have to peruse at the weekend when I have a spare hour or two!

Todd Mason said...

Thank you, folks...and I did snag yours, Brian, as soon as I noted I hadn't checked yours...

Silver Screenings said...

A couple of posts caught my attention right away, such as the underrated films of 1987 and the rural noir films. There are a lot of things on this list that I miss during my usual blog reading – thanks!

Todd Mason said...

Precisely why I try to cast a wide net, Ruth...though I find it can be challenging in several ways. Thanks, for the good word and your own work on your blog.
