This week it is all hands on deck as Steve, Jonathan, and Andrew discuss the second golden age of television, how the concept of “flow” fits into it, and whether the consumer is cheated by those who own “that last mile.” Come along as we return to our first “traditional” episode of the new year and please join us for what we feel is a riveting round table discussion.

This week join Steve, Andrew, and Jonathan as they delve into one of Steve’s favorite subjects – the flow of TV. We discuss Raymond Williams, the traditional TV programming grid, the effect of DVRs, and the resurgence of in-program product placement. Plus, what the heck does Andy Griffith have to do with it all? [clue – Steve knows].
