Brandy met television at the age of three, when her Eastern European parents brought home a boisterous yet healthy black-and-white set of unnamed brand or origin. It was love at first sight. She quickly adopted the lively bundle and showered it with attention. By 1996, she was an avid follower of the animated classics Bugs Bunny and Captain Planet, and such live action gems as Matlock; Murder, She Wrote; and MacGyver. She kindly asks not to be judged for her youthful folly, as the 1980s came late to Romania. Today, Brandy's bond to television is sustained by a tumultuous yet indomitable* devotion. She wishes she knew how to quit it, but who are we kidding?
*Brandy also reads books that feature words like tumultuous and indomitable; she hopes she's using them correctly.
Liz is a true television connoisseur. She began her illustrious career as a television scholar at the tender age of four when she began to explore the intricacies of human emotions and the alphabet on Sesame Street. She soon graduated to shows with Bildungsroman plots and excessive personification, such as Duck Tales and Alf. Never one to rest on her laurels, Liz pressed on watching increasing amounts of television with each passing year. There was worry of eye strain after ten years of dedicated TV viewing, but our expert-in-the-making ignored her mother's cries. In 2000, overwhelmed with the influx of new reality TV shows, Liz worried she would no longer remain at the forefront of her field. She prevailed through sheer sticktoitiveness and the invention of the DVR.
Today, after 20 years of in-depth television research and study, Liz has been witness to such important television milestones as the original Beverly Hills 90210 and the births of MTV and the E! channel. She has decided to share her gift with the public by co-authoring a TV blog with colleague and gal pal Brandy. Each month they'll deliver thoughtful and incisive commentary on such gems as House, Weeds and Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
