Like the coffee you drink, the television you watch today is much better than it used to be. Thanks to a revolution in technology and an explosion in content, it's now possible to watch nothing but great TV and skip the rest. But where do you start? Let Aaron Barnhart - television sage of the Kansas City Star and longtime TV Barn blogger - show the way. First, Aaron slices and dices more than 15 years of first-hand reporting and commentary on a fast and fearless journey through TV's most turbulent era: from the Leno-Letterman "war" to 9/11 and actual wars ... from reality TV to quality dramas like 24 and Mad Men ... from the rise of DVRs to the fall of Conan O'Brien. Then stay tuned as Aaron brings you the 100 best TV shows to buy, rent, or download ... more than 1000 hours of viewing! Leave behind the "vast wasteland" ... you're entering TASTELAND.

And beyond the history, his list of the 100 best shows of the past 15 years is essential viewing for anyone who has missed TV's new golden age. No fan or student of the medium should pass up TASTELAND." --Jason Snell, editor of Macworld and TeeVee.org
