FANWOOD, NJ -- Alan Sepinwall, named the “King of Television Criticism” by Slate, will appear on Wednesday, May 10, at 7:00 p.m. at the Fanwood Memorial Library.

According to the online magazine, Sepinwall pioneered the post-episode analysis back when The Sopranos rose to cultural prominence. After a 14-year stretch at the NJ Star-Ledger, he blogged for HitFix and now writes for Uproxx, reviewing 10 to 15 shows a week.

Sepinwall manages just enough air between his strong emotions and the drama unfolding on his screen to analyze it. More often than not, his morning-after analysis ends up as impassioned cheer rather than diagnostic exam.
