Ed’s let­ter

TV Plus (South Africa) - - CONTENTS -

We do ev­ery­thing pos­si­ble to squeeze in tons of con­tent into each tv­plus, from one-sen­tence triv­ias on the Movie Menus and TV Guides, to the side­bar mini-sto­ries on the right of each sched­ule page. Side­bars are among my favourites be­cause there is al­ways some­thing new to learn or laugh about from ac­tor or get in­sight into a show that I don’t re­ally watch… as much as I try to. Did you know that 273 work­ers built the sets and helped make Sur­vivor SA (see p45)? Or that Kevin Ba­con (Ryan Hardy in The Fol­low­ing) danced so much in his movie Foot­loose that he had blis­ters (see p55)? I also for­got that Don John­son, Sonny in Mi­ami Vice (see p59), was mar­ried to Me­lanie Grif­fith! At least Elias Koteas (Alvin in Chicago PD, see p65) can laugh when fans mis­take him for Law & Or­der’s Chris Meloni. See, watch­ing TV and read­ing about it can broaden your knowl­edge!

There’s loads you’ll learn about stars like Kevin Ba­con just from read­ing tv­plus.
