I used to work at a newsroom desk, where I had no wall space to call my own. These days, I have my own office, where I get to hang some of my favorite pieces of art I've either acquired myself or been sent as job swag. This is what I'm looking at when I turn away from my computer or the TV on my desk to admire the interior view.
  1. Veronica Mars noir poster
    7c51d56f 19aa 44a2 9322 82f5b8c0ab3d
    A Comic-Con giveaway from the UPN days, it hangs behind me and is visible whenever I record an Ask Alan video (or from the defunct Firewall & Iceberg video show).
  2. Chuck '80s action movie poster
    9fe8ac5b 686e 4490 9157 582eec86b133
    Another Comic-Con item, this hung side-by-side with Veronica in the last office, but is now on an opposite wall, with Jeffster staring me right in the face as I sit down every morning.
  3. Terriers poster
    Dada7829 b75e 4c65 b0fa bd51cae2001e
    Such a great show. Such a terrible name/marketing campaign. Still, my love of the show overwhelms my annoyance with the snarling dog at the center of this one.
  4. NYPD Blue milk ad
    A3cae43e 3e11 41ed 81fc 1dc30e40b1b4
    I think I cut this one out of an Entertainment Weekly issue. This show was the start of my career as a TV reviewer; gotta keep a memento of it close by.
  5. Battlestar Galactica: The Last Supper
    D736c402 c1e4 4b06 95f8 f9b4f61bb51f
    Sci Fi (before it became Syfy) sent these out as a thank you to critics sometime during the final season.
  6. The Wire season 1 poster
    A6bdd5de e17a 4236 a6f9 ee7c57584029
    Small compared to some of the others, but that seems about right for a show that almost nobody watched when it was originally on.
  7. X-Files "I Want to Believe" poster
    Ad48e9eb cf80 420b 8bc0 44df0246d78d
    Not an exact replica of the one in Fox Mulder's office (his didn't promise a 6-episode miniseries debuting in January), but still a nice bit of recent swag. Have to figure out where on the wall I want to hang it.
