Behind the Screens: Illustrated Floor Plans and Scenes from the Best TV Shows of All Time

Chronicle. Sept. 2023. 136p. ISBN 9781797219431. $24.95. REF
One could argue the merits of whether these are truly the best TV shows of all time, but there is no denying the fun, whimsy, and commitment to detail in interior design illustrator Lizarralde’s beautifully rendered TV-show floor plans. Ricky and Lucy Ricardo’s apartment, Breaking Bad’s traveling meth lab, and Sesame Street storefronts and interiors are among the 35 colorful entries, with accompanying background notes and key points by filmmaker and pop culture maven Fischer.
VERDICT Delightfully offbeat views of Stars Hollow (The Gilmore Girls), Central Perk (Friends), and the Pie Hole (Pushing Daisies). Consider ordering a couple of copies, as this will likely stay in circulation.
