The New Television Obscurities

If you’re reading this, I’ve successfully rolled out the new and improved Television Obscurities, which I’ve been working on for the past three or four months. As if so often the case, it took me much longer than anticipated. My original goal when I decided to redesign the website was to find a professional (and free) layout that wouldn’t require me to constantly troubleshoot issues. I’d hoped to simply switch to the new layout. That’s before I realized how much altering it needed to fit my vision for the website.

It’s not perfect but it’s as close as I’m going to get, unless I hire a professional to design a custom layout from scratch.

I’ve tested the new layout as best I can and haven’t seen any significant problems. There was an issue with the logo that I think I’ve fixed. You may have to refresh your browser a few times or even clear your browser cache. Please let me know if you come across any broken links, missing images, or error pages. And if you have any general feedback or comments about the new look for Television Obscurities, I’d love to hear them.

Finally, if you’ve sent me an e-mail at any point during the past few months, I apologize for the lengthy delay in responding. I’ve spent most of my free time working on this redesign. Next week will be devoted to catching up on e-mails. There are also a few blogs posts I need to write. Once they’re done, I’m going to take a week or two off to rejuvenate and then dive back in.

There is still work to be done behind-the-scenes cleaning up old blog posts. My next big project will be starting a Television Obscurities channel on YouTube. Also, my long overdue guide to short-lived and forgotten TV shows on streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime should be completed by July.

Later this summer, look for similar guides to short-lived and forgotten TV shows available on DVD and currently airing on television. And coming in September is another edition of A Year in TV Guide, this one focusing on the 1988-1989 TV season.

  1. It took a little hunting to find the articles and where to comment. It looked at first as if comments were removed. Maybe a comment button at the bottom would help.

    At first I thought the page was like tvbythenumbers.com where they have an article at top but if you scroll down to see the bottom it gets blocked by the articles scrolling up. This page isn’t bad but it takes getting use to.

  2. Since I tend to be set in my ways I first had a bit of a panic, because I couldn’t figure out where things were, but after a bit of trial and error I found out that Blog is what the “opening page” used to be, and discovered how to leave a comment. (I’m hoping that the folks who apparently believe you to be in charge of programming at MeTV, CozyTV, etc., never do figure out how to leave comments, so they’ll stop complaining about you taking off their favorite shows, when all you did was write something about the channel in question…)

    Best wishes on your new endeavors, such as a YouTube page. I realize this isn’t your “day job” and the only assistance you get in keeping this site up and running is an occasional tiny commission from someone purchasing a DVD set by clicking on the link at this site. You put a great deal of time, effort and money into TV Obscurities so that others can tap or click a few times and magically receive a bit of entertainment.

    Thank you for your great work.

  3. I like the revamped site. Thank you for taking the time to do it, and for all of your research and posts. This is one of my favorite internet sites.

  4. I will get used to the new format but as always I love this site! I don’t comment as much as I would like but I check it out just about every day. Always interested in what is coming our way in The Month in Home Media segment. Thanks again for all of your hard work!
