Some British tosser is insulting BookTV (i.e. my nerd crack)! What tosh! Yeah, it's not for everyone, and, yes, a lot of it is boring stuff, but it's an absolutely unique and necessary public resource. I'd like to see him do better with just the dribs and drabs the cable and satellite companies give them! It's a public service, not a slick, advertiser subsidized. So piss off, ya wanker, I say!
