Alan Sepinwall (2015)

Alan Sepinwall is an American television reviewer and writer. He spent 14 years as a columnist with The Star-Ledger in Newark until leaving the newspaper in 2010 to work for the entertainment news website HitFix. Sepinwall began writing about television with reviews of NYPD Blue while attending the University of Pennsylvania, which led to his job at The Star-Ledger. In 2007, immediately after The Sopranos ended, series creator David Chase granted his sole interview to Sepinwall. In 2009, Sepinwall openly urged NBC not to cancel the action-comedy series Chuck, and NBC Entertainment co-president Ben Silverman partially credited Sepinwall for the show's revival. Slate.com said Sepinwall "changed the nature of television criticism" and called him the "acknowledged king of the form" with regard to weekly episode recaps and reviews. Sepinwall and television critic Dan Fienberg host a podcast at HitFix called "Firewall & Iceberg", in which they discuss and review television.

About the Alan Sepinwall Interview

Hey everybody, it's Alan Sepinwall, TV critic at HitFix.com, sometime-podcaster, and author of books, including "The Revolution Was Televised," now out in an updated edition and this blog post explains all the changes from the original edition.

I'll be here for the next few hours to take your questions about the book, the current state of TV, or whatever you want to ask about. I did one of these the last time the book was released, and it was a lot of fun, so I'm looking forward to getting weird with you all again.

UPDATE: And I believe that's a wrap. Thanks for coming everybody! The last question, from thereallisachings, seemed too good a note not to end on.
