  • Viewers Advisory: We Like Your StyleViewers Advisory - two pairs of feet atop movie theater seats

    We are a couple of librarians who take television as seriously as books. If there is a good show out there that can be watched for free, trust us to tell you ALL about it.

In real life you might call us Appleberry and Lowell, but together, in the vast blogosphere we are called Viewers Advisory.
