Primetimer. May 2022. 432p. ed. by Aaron Barnhart. ISBN 9781946248114. $19.99. REF
With input from staff and contributors to the Primetimer blog, lead critic and senior editor Barnhart offers a guide to navigating the wonderful, though at times overwhelming, world of streaming television. Noting that the streaming landscape flourished during lockdown, Barnhart includes options and budgets for switching from network and cable, as well as prices and specs for Disney+, Amazon Prime, HBOMax, and other platforms. Entries on primarily U.S. and UK programs include rating (TV-PG, unrated), release year, number of seasons, distributor, type (reality, satirical comedy, horror), cast, awards, and a brief summary.
VERDICT Streaming newbies will find the overall explanations enlightening, while seasoned viewers can flip through short descriptions and occasional commentary. Useful for most libraries.
