It’s a ‘Dinosaur Revolution’ This Sunday on Discovery Channel

Working for Discovery, I achieve an extra “cool factor” with my nephews when I can introduce them to new series or specials about the natural world — from Life to Shark Week. And, with dinosaurs among the most popular subjects when they do pop in a DVD (Gus likes the “biting parts”), I’m excited that Discovery Channel‘s Dinosaur Revolution has arrived (premieres Sunday at 9pm ET/PT). The series, which had…

No Fishing Pole, No Problem: Animal Planet’s ‘Hillbilly Handfishin” Premieres Sunday

Yes, I am from Oklahoma. When people find that out, I often get a series of questions: Did I grow up on a farm? (No.) Do I say “soda” or “pop”? (Neither, I call a bubbly beverage Coke, regardless of brand.) One question that I haven’t heard (but I suspect I will in the coming days): Have I ever gone noodling? Why do I suspect I’ll hear this? On Sunday…
