As adults we're film dorks, comic book geeks and indie-music nerds. We do not, as a general rule, jet-ski. This is what we'll be reading as we try to avoid the sun. Summer Books 2007: Excerpts Excerpt: 'Television Without Pity: 752 Things We Love to Hate (and Hate to Love) About TV' June 4, 2007 Glen Weldon recommends this "lovingly acerbic compendium of television's most cringeworthy elements," written by Tara Ariano and Sarah D. Bunting, founders of the Television Without Pity Web site. The book maintains the site's "distinctive loose, conversational and unfailingly funny style."
