Today marks the tenth anniversary of the relaunch of Television Obscurities on June 11th, 2003. I posted yesterday about the pre-history and original version of the website and later today I’ll be taking a look back at the past decade. I may be overdoing it a bit with these anniversary posts but this is a pretty big deal for me. Ten years is more than a third of my life.
A decade is a long time any way you cut it but in the world of television it’s an eternity. There aren’t a lot of shows that have lasted ten years. Ten seasons have come and gone since June 2003. That’s a lot of quick cancellations and one season wonders. A lot of new obscurities.
I want to thank all the people who have visited this site since 2003, each and every person who has e-mailed me over the past ten years, and the hundreds of readers who have left thousands of comments since the blog was started in November 2008. Over the years I’ve been able to help a lot of people identify shows they watched when they were kids. I’ve been thrilled and happy to do it. And I truly appreciate all the kind words and compliments I’ve received.
Here’s to another ten years of watching and writing about obscure television.
