PRESS
"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."

ABOUT
The name's Pond. Jaime Pond.

Anglonerd magazine is a site for Americans who love nerdy British television and British (and Irish) comedy. You'll find where to get those hard to track down TV shows, British comedians touring the States, American release dates of British films, British TV on American networks, and much more. Anglonerd is more reviews, recommendations, cartoons, and exclusive interviews than it is about entertainment news, but do check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for up-to-the-minute (all right, week) news because we like to repost/retweet others' news stories. And by "we," I mean me.

Hi, I'm Jaime Pond, New York anglophile and nerd. Have a question? Email me at anglonerd@gmail.com.

"Particles of raw inspiration sleet through the universe all the time. Every once in a while one of them hits a receptive mind, which then invents DNA or the flute sonata form or a way of making light bulbs wear out in half the time. But most of them miss. Most people go through their lives without being hit by even one. Some people are even more unfortunate. They get them all."

Terry Pratchett
