"Another blog by an American (honestly, do us Brits write any of our own TV blogs?), but this time without the infectious, and adorable, enthusiasm. Instead, Anglonerd offers a variety of insights into the bits of British TV that most Americans won’t have heard of, with a bit of a focus on comedy. If you want your British TV knowledge to go further than Doctor Who and Downton Abbey, then Anglonerd is for you, with great write ups of comedians’ and actors’ careers, illustrations of panel comedy shows, and the odd reviews and features."
