Better than ANYTHING on Cable/Broadcast Television
8 January 2014 | by (SF Bay Area, California) – See all my reviews

Todd in the Shadows is simply a fantastic, hilarious, insightful, and awesomely entertaining music review show. Todd (hidden in shadow) chooses songs from the current "Top 40" Pop charts and conducts an honest (and satirical) review of the song. Todd normally picks songs which are (considered by most) vapid, insulting, pathetic, and trashy though sometimes he showcases a song which he really likes. Each episode is between 10 and 20 minuets. Todd breaks down the lyrics and musical composition of the songs, discussing their meaning and quality. Todd is a talented Musician which helps him with his insights. Because Todd is a Musician I find his insights to be more credible than from someone who wasn't able to make music themselves. I gave up paying for & watching TV, so the Internet is where I now get my "fix" of visual entertainment. Todd In The Shadows is one of the best shows on the web. He is so funny, honest, and insightful and I look forward to each new episode.
