o/t: Todd Mason’s Overlooked A/V: Films, Television, Radio and More

Yes, it’s another episode of the useful roundup (click HERE for all the individual links). This week, for once, let Todd do his own introducing of it:

The weekly roundup of reviews, interviews, and other citations of (often, though not always) underappreciated examples of the dramatic and related arts; for the first time, not one but two citations of an auction, as well (and two defenses of Hallmark Channel programming; I don’t disagree). As always, please let me know if I’ve missed your or anyone else’s contribution this week in comments… thanks.
