c|net ate the rather useful tvtome.com and spat out a horrible chunk of bloated, pre-chewed ad-strewn garbage!

I hate you, cnet!

it seems like most of the facts on ye olde tvtome.com bore a rather tenuous relationship with the truth, though. perhaps in time c|net will make it a more reality-based website.

or not.

Oh, I sure had several issues with tvtome, the same issues as with most user-maintained pop culture reference sites: any episode guide that relied on personal opinions instead of attempting to stay objective, for instance. But being festooned with horrible sidebar ads and slow-loading and crummy style sheets wasn't one of the issues.

I sent them angry email a few days ago about this. They said they'd forward it to the appropriate department. Sigh.

They aren't wasting any time, either. Just look what I found under Next Generation:

Monday September 28, 1987
