4-0 out of 5 stars Motivates and Inspires You To Better Things

Oprah is living testimony that you have to constantly strive to become a better person. There is no quick remedy to become a better and positive person, and instead you have to constantly work at it. Of course, we don't have Oprah's wealth and support system to help us, but what we do have is this magazine. This is a great self-help magazine.

In today's world where we are constantly strapped for time, and our attention span cannot last more than 5 minutes, this is a great magazine to read and imbine motivation and inspiration.

What makes this magazine a little different from others is that it has examples of real people that you and I can relate to. What I find very interesting is the last page where Oprah pens her thoughts, and reveals her inner-feelings. I remember that in one of the issues Oprah mentions that even though she can afford to buy lots of clothes, she still stops and asks herself if she needs to buy this new piece of clothing. You instantly know that Oprah does not believe in squandering away her wealth, but is careful but how she spends it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Greatness
I love O Magazine because it really helps me to be the very best person I can be.

I am continually striving to improve my life and my circumstance, and this magazine brings me fresh ideas and perspectives about that every single month.

Some of the other greatest and most helpful items that I've discovered also include...

GIANT STEPS by Tony Robbins

The NEW SEX NOW dvd by New Sex Institute

GODDESS WORSHIP video by Dr. Clarke

SONICAIRE toothbrush

THE BIBLE

4-0 out of 5 stars Be the Advocate!

Like millions of others I am Oprah follower. I do watch the show as often as my time allows. However, I think that the magazine is many steps behind the show. Maybe it is because we are all used to do some errands when the commercials come on TV during the show. Maybe because the show does not seem to be contracted out to other celebrities to fill the void...

I am simply overwhelmed by the amount of advertising in the magazine.-- What a waste of paper! I imagined that "Oprah Inc." is rich enough to give up on some extra revenues for the sake of better content...

I also find that it would be more interesting to diversify the articles with some not-so-accomplished authors as Dr. Phil. Why the magazine does not bring to the daylight some great books that deserve much more attention than they are presently given? It is a big mystery to me that such a great volume like "Can We Live 150 Years?" by Dr. Tombak, remains obscure, while other authors, are being thrown in our face day by day to the point of nausea... I'd imagine that this would be a great opportunity for such media like Oprah Magazine to step up and play the role of the advocate, discoverer, promoter, or whatever you call it. Some things simply need more publicity, so why pass on the opportunity and play the same old record again and again...

So much critique and still 4 stars? Hey, I criticize to improve things that I like. Oprah magazine deserves 4 stars, but it can be even better...

3-0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine However...
This magazine is unlike other magazines that are focused on gossip, foolishness and sex.I read almost every article in each issue that I have received thus far.

Upon receiving the first issue in my subscription to O Magazine, I was pleased to find that particular issue was 350+ pages thick.I later found that approximately 75% of that issue and following issues were advertisements.If I wanted to flip through multiple advertisements, I'd subscribe to Vogue or Cosmopolitan.If O Magazine published articles alone, it would consist of no more than 100 pages, which would probably cause a huge reduction in the cost ...

4-0 out of 5 stars She has survived past so many that have tumbled.
Overall, the magazine is positive and forwardly focused so in that sense there are moments of empowerment. The photography is phenomenal and the features are well-written but can be quite bland.I think one issue is often simply more of the same from the issue before so an issue here or there is interesting but a subscription would be redundant.

How many women are there who have Oprah's business acumen and are intelligent enough to stay out of controversial personal entanglements like "O" say Martha or Rosie?I have to be in awe of Oprah's achievements and the staying power to continue the selling success with a magazine that by all accounts is a photographic journey of Oprah on every cover - every month for five years.No super-model on the planet or even the most succesful actress can include that on a resume! ...

From Amazon.com

People is the most wildly, consistently successful magazine in history (not to mention the most stolen from lunchrooms) and it's avidly read by half the population of America each year. Why? The people at People know what you want to read: the absolute latest, impossible-to-get dish on celebrity scandals (a $3-million-a-year fact-checking department keeps it real); definitive tribute issues; snappy wrap-ups on the whereabouts of yesterday's stars and the current Most Beautiful People; riveting stories of real folks caught up in the day's biggest news, health, and crime stories; and quick picks and pans on what's up in entertainment. And after years of black-and-white drabness, the mag has fully mastered the art of flashy, full-color photography. --Bob Brandeis ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best surprise gift I ever got
Someone gave this to me as a gift a while back... and as I was thanking them I have to admit I was scratching my head and asking myself "why?" Well, the answer came when I started to get the magazine...

In an age when magazines routinely come less and less frequently (down from monthly to 10 times a year or even 6 times a year) it was really great to just get so darn many magazines frankly! Besides the sheer number of issues they are just plain fun and timely.. Yes, they do human interest stories and more *deep* stories from time to time... but mostly its just a fast paced easy to read escape of whats happening ...right now..this week.

The people and stories they cover are generally the celebs or people with *current* public interest who are making the news at that time and that will click with most people. The stories dont go deep into any particular story but there is a reasonable amount of info without being especially unsavory (ie the stories do not seem overly intrusive to the people they are about, nor do the pictures of them)

The person who got me this could have got me something esle I suppose..the fruit of the month club, time magazine, new york magazine... a plant... but this was just so much more fun..every time it comes!

4-0 out of 5 stars Scoops without Sensationalism
I have been buying this magazine for a number of years, and it just keeps getting better all the time.

You get up to date information on celebrity gossip, as well as human interest stories, and excellent photographs, but everything is done tastefully, without tabloid sensationalism.

Nice features include reviews of current films, books and music, with Editor's picks, and the special issues are always collectibles. More news is available to subscribers and newstand buyers at people.com.

How can it be improved? In my opinion, it needs some humour sections, and top ten lists of music, books and films.

Overall, a great magazine that friends are lining up to borrow.
Get your own copies guys!

5-0 out of 5 stars I'm a People Person
This magazine has had such a tremendous influence on my life. I know that a lot of readers get this subscription because they think of People Magazine as just "Fluff," but if you are looking for inspiration, the pages of People are loaded with it.

For example, several years ago, reading about Tony Robbins in People inspired me to investigate what he was all about. That led to my buying one of his books, then a set of motivational tapes, and ultimately I went to one of his live seminars and WALKED ON FIRE! That experience has led me to a personal understanding that I can do ANYTHING that I set my mind to. All because I read about Tony in People.

Another great example is Robert Kyosaki -- I read a profile on Robert which talked about his Rich Dad Poor Dad book, which prompted me to get a copy of the tape set. I drove around listening to those tapes in my car for months -- and then next thing I knew, I made an offer on a house, got it accepted, and suddenly, just a few months later, I went from being a renter to a home-owner. My own personal American Dream story, straight from the pages of People.

And lastly -- perhaps most importantly -- I read a small story about a new system for increasing intimacy and passion for couples. I followed up by buying a copy of the "New Sex Now" dvd right here on amazon, and before I knew what had happened, suddenly my lovelife went from ho-hum to humming on all cylinders. I started dating a woman with whom I shared some major chemistry, and soon I turned her onto the experience -- it ignited passion in us both that we had never known before, and intimacy that was unparalleled. Now, a few years later, she's my wife. Talk about fulfillment! I connected with the love of my life because of an article I read in People.

Granted, all of the foregoing is not to say that there's not a great deal of very light entertaining reading and pictures in People, for those who want to just veg out and pass the time idly. But for those who are looking to improve themselves, for those who are looking to suck the juice out of every drop of life, People magazine can be the stuff which makes dreamers out of work-a-day slobs by providing pictures and profiles of the people who inspire us to be more than what we are. How much more could you want from a magazine?

3-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful People?
The cover of your beautiful people seems to be wrong. The small picture of Pat Tillman should have been the cover, with the picture of Jennifer Aniston on the corner. The issue should have been focused on the truly beautiful - the servicemen and women fighting for our country. The so-called "stars" seem even more superficial when you put a photo of Pat Tillman, and all he stands for ont he magazine. How many "stars" could of, or would of, done what Mr. Tillman did for his country.

4-0 out of 5 stars overall people is a good magazine
hmm... people magazine. well like every magazine it has its ups and downs; good articles and bads. but i think people has more good than bad. i like their celebrities and their other articles. And i LOVE the sexiest man alive issue and the special feature issues like 200 greatest pop icons, 100 greatest movie stars of our time, ect. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best magazine for entertainment buffs.
If you are an entertainment buff, like myself, then you will really enjoy the ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY magazine. EW always has the latest information about music, movies, TV shows, and celebrities. It gives you tons of great, glossy photos. This magazine does not have too much gossip--they have some, but most of the information that they give is true. I also love going to their website--the website is very cool and informative, too.

I especially love EW's special issues, like when they do Oscar coverage or a complete issue on a certain highly anticipated movie. They've also got reviews from the latest CDs, movies, TV shows, and books. And this is a weekly magazine, so you get a new issue every week--not just every month. EW Magazine is a good size as well...it is not too thick and not too skinny. The magazine is made from top-qaulity paper, and just a plain great entertainment magazine. Whenever I'm looking for the latest Hollywood/music industry news and gossip--I always turn to the ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY Magazine, because I know I can trust it!

So for all you entertainment buffs, I highly recommend this magazine. To me, it is well-worth the subscription price!

1-0 out of 5 stars Entertainment Weakly
If you need to be told what to think by glib, middlebrow writers, then EW is for you. It's an indispensible magazine for those who panic at the thought of not being squarely at the center of conventional wisdom, and who prefer to regurgitate review blurbs rather than say what they themselves think. It's basically a clearinghouse for studio and network press releases, with reviewers who make painfully obvious attempts to second guess public mood so they can calibrate their opinions accordingly.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun & lively read
I read EW every week because it's a fun and entertaining way to keep up with the news. Nothing they print is really mind-blowing or new (any decent movie web site has more updates & news) but they have interesting stories sometimes and decent reviews (esp from Lisa Schwarzbaum). The reason I can't give it a 5-star rating is that it is not consistent, with only every 2 or 3 issues really good and sometimes they release issues (see the recent AI cover story or Shrek 2) that are just filler and boring. If you want real in-depth, critical great film writing, I would suggest "Film Comment" or "Cinema Scope", but for fun and broad entertainment news, check it out.

4-0 out of 5 stars great coverage of the entertainment world
One thing that I look forward to every week is the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. This is a great magazine for pop culture and gives an overview of what is going on in the entertainment world. There are some regular columns that I enjoy (The "Must" List, The Hot Sheet, etc) and the movie/DVD tend to give a good look at what is coming out and how good the movie may be. Since I am a movie fan, it is the movie coverage that interests me the most and Entertainment Weekly does an excellent job covering the big movies that are coming out.

The highlight of this magazine are the "special" issues, in particular the seasonal movie preview issues and the Oscar special issue. For someone interested in movies, these are the best issues of the year and give a good solid look at what is coming out, and there is even coverage of some of the lesser known, independent movies.

The coverage in Entertainment Weekly is not as in depth as you might find in a genre specific magazine ("Premiere" covers movies, so is more in depth on that, but it only covers movies and takes a different view), but it is not supposed to be. This is a weekly magazine that covers all of the entertainment world, from movies to music to books (occasionally, outside of the reviews) to television to just pop culture. Entertainment Weekly provides the general coverage that I am looking for, and is entertaining (as it should be) to read. That's why I look forward to receiving the new issue every Saturday.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love to see ET Weekly every single week...
Entertainment Weekly has always been my favorite magazine for several reasons. The articles, the beautiful pictures, and the great reviews on everything from music to books.

Since I work in a library I find it fun to see what the reviewer thinks about up coming books. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars nick mag rox!
nick mag is a funny, creative magazine. It has a lot of pranks and great interviews. I wouldn't reccomend this to kids over the age of 13 as you may find some of this stuff a little too silly. But anyone else will love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Nickelodeon Magazine
Nick Mag is a colorful magazine I would recommend for every kid. I especially like the pull-out pranks, which you tape on a container to trick parents. And also what's great about it is that they also have interviews with sport athletes and singers. In the April 2003 issue, they had a rate-your-fart chart. This magazine also has real facts, and chances to earn prizes. If you're thinking about ordering a kid's magazine, I recommend Nick Mag.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Mag EVER!!!!!
Nickelodeon magazine is the best magazine ever. I'm 11 and I started readeng Nick when I was 8 1\2, I loved it right away. It has everything, like pranks, comics (which are soooo funny), polls, contests, new movies, whats new on Nick, a few celebreties, and all around funny. On the June/July 2004 issue there is a super funny part titled Five Steps to Fame and it is Super Funny. I would recomend this for any child at the age around 8-14. It's easy to read, super funny and packed with every thing you can imagine.

5-0 out of 5 stars FUN MAGAZINE!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love this magazine!! It has alot of different and instersting subjects in each issue and it actually has real facts and sometimes you can learn from it. I love the interviews with the celebitrys and news a bout up comming movies!! It also has pranks , comics , jokes, and other cool things!! This is a great magazine that kids will want to read because it is not difcult to read and there are fun things to do!!
Another nice thing about it is that it is clean!! Even though celebritys and movies can be innoprapate this magazine cuts out all that stuff and leaves in the good things!!! I highhly reccomend this to evern kid from 9-13 years old

4-0 out of 5 stars A funny, interesting magazine.
There is stuff for everyone here: interviews, puzzles, interesting facts, contests, pull-outs, and a lot of humor. I really love this magazine and find it both interesting and funny. You don't have to like the channel to like this magazine. There is one star off because I'm a bit older then the demographic (I'm 12) so sometimes the humor consists of immature potty humor, but this is rare. ... Read more

Around nearly as along as the television has been in American homes, TV Guide has been the TV reference guide for generations. With weekly regional issues jammed with clear and organized listings of what plays when, it's a compact and dependable guide for everyone from leisure-time weekender to professional couch potato. TV Guide remains in step with the explosion of cable channels, as television becomes the prime destination for innumerable sporting events, movies, and music. In addition to the listings, the week in television is covered alongside features on the top personalities and trends: visit the set of The Sopranos, get up-close with Janet Jackson before her special hits the airwaves, or ready yourself for the upcoming NFL season. The most recognizable and bestselling magazine of its kind, TV Guide is ground zero for what's happening on television. --Doug Thomas ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars TV Guide Needs a Makeover
I've subscribed to TV Guide for about forever. Even as recently as a couple of years ago I read many of the articles and regularly looked through the listings to find my favorite programs. However, with the increased diversification of cable and satellite companies, it seems that TV Guide has a problem covering some markets with thorough and reliable information.

It seems as though TV Guide's coverage of shows focuses more and more on sitcoms and teen shows. I've gotten to the point with shows like "Friends" that I keep hoping the show will completely disappear so that I won't have to see another article about how overpaid the stars are, and who they are sleeping with, and the tantrums they throw on the set (if they show up at all). What happened to articles about the relevance of TV to society? What about articles regarding quality acting (and "Friends" isn't it)?

Once upon a time TV Guide had substantial information, often probing information. For most of us, TV Guide made us feel like we were insiders to the happenings behind the scenes in television. Today TV Guide feels like another teen magazine. After having subscribed for what seems like forever, we are letting our subscription lapse. TV Guide needs to look to its roots and figure out how to be more dynamic in this era. There is still some good and relevant information, and the major channels are covered in the program listing. However, do not be surprised if some channels are not covered (we do not have Bravo listings in our hourly listings, as an example), and do not be surprised if all the articles are about teen and young adult shows and stars. Three stars for a magazine that once was THE magazine for television, and now no longer distinguishes itself.

1-0 out of 5 stars a rip off
no matter how many times you contact them, you will never get your magazine, or your refund. DON'T EVER SUSCRIBE!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars No where what it used to be
I'm a pretty big TV fan. I'm a member of a family thats gotten TV guide for almost 20 years until this last year. It just isn't what it used to be.

Why does TV guide cover movies in the theater. If the movie isn't going to be on TV for over a year why are they covering it. Don't sell out. That bugs me a lot. You are suppose to be informative about TV not movies.

None of the columns are no where what they used to be. Cheers and Jeers used to be good, but it has lost it's flavor. I don't know whats happended to the writer, but he's become pretty harsh and hard to please. Him bashing those teenage kids for abstinence was one of the straws that broke my back to this magazine.

TV Guide does do a pretty good job of letting you know whats on TV. If a TV show is hot they let you know about it. They've always done a good job in this area.

As far as letting you know whats on tv TV guide does a good job. It's a pretty easy to read format with the times, dates, and channels listed. They lay the primetime schedule out everyday in a nice grid thats really easy to read.

One of the things I've always liked that TV guide did was in the back of the magazine. They would list all of the movies on the premium channels in ABC order. If your a big movie fan you could do a little bit of reading and then maybe plan on watching a movie. They still do this and I enjoy that.

TV Guide needs to stop selling out. It is going to kill there subscription list one day. We don't get TV guide in our house anymore because of Direct TV. The channel guide gives us everything TV Guide does and it's pointless to get the magazine. It's not bad if your a big TV fan and it's a one of a kind. I have no use for it anymore though.

1-0 out of 5 stars The "New" TV Guide
Recently, TV Guide made permanent changes to the format of their magazine. They now list all weekday programming (except for prime time and the middle of the night) in a grid form -- all five days on two pages for each three-hour time frame. This has left them with considerably less room for any detail, and has resulted in the use of "Various Programs" as the only listing for many channels that don't choose to have the same exact program at the same exact time day after day.

I did not subscribe to the TV Guide for the miscellaneous gossip and short stories they have, I wanted a guide to what was on TV. They no longer provide this. "Various Programs" is useless to me, and, unfortunately, something used way to often on the stations I prefer.

Plus, they now work on having it in mailboxes on Monday the week before, which also means they are not too up-to-date. Changes made within a week or so before airtime don't make it to the magazine.

If you want to read stories about TV shows and actors or get your horoscope for the week, you may like the magazine.

However, if you want accurate and complete listings for what's on TV, I recommend you use something else, like the one that comes with the Sunday paper. Not as glossy, but at least it doesn't pretend to be something it's not.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good magazine, way too expensive
I used to subscribe to TV Guide but stopped because there was a 100% price increase during the time I subscribed. 'TV Channels' that comes with our local paper is just as accurate and I have money left over to get some magazine for the 'magazine' part that Channels doesn't have. ... Read more

I expected more for the price that you pay!!! Yes it has interesting current info...but like 8 pages worth....not enough for $7.00 an issue. I want a 200 page magazine for that price or a lesser cost. I recommend you go to Barnes and Noble or Borders...sit down and read it and put it back. Seriously! Normally I would never suggest that but....the alternative is just a waste any way you look at it. I am a fan of the show and Jennifer Garner in general so it took a lot to down the magazine!!! Look I still gave it 3 stars...definitely more than it deserves!

4-0 out of 5 stars Still Worth Reading
As a previous reviewer said, Soap Opera Weekly lost some of its bite when its original editor was fired. It used to be more serious in its presentation of the soap world and more critical. That said, I still think it's worth a read if only to catch up on what's going on both on and behind the screen. I don't think someone really interested in finding out what's happening in the soap world can totally ignore it. Supplement this with Soap Opera Digest and you've pretty much got all the news you need to know about what's happening in the daytime world of television.

4-0 out of 5 stars Up Close With Soaps: From "Passions" to "General Hospital"
I'm a big fan of NBC's "Passions" and Soap Opera Weekly has done a great job pitching Jim Reilly's wacky and wonderful soap from its infancy in 1999 to its present day status as one of the most unique soaps on the air.
"Soap Opera Weekly" also offers up-to-date sneak peeks, who's in, who's out plus great profiles and well versed critiques of some of daytime's best performers. The price is also right. No matter what soap you watch, SOD has plenty of info to offer. Lastly, their covers are terrific. I buy it as often as I can.

1-0 out of 5 stars How the mighty have fallen.
I am a disillusioned former subscriber to Soap Opera Weekly. After about seven years of receiving this magazine every week in the mail, it finally got too bad to be worth my time and money.

In the beginning, Weekly was a dream, something that should have been read whether or not one actually watched soap operas. Mimi Torchin, former editor, and columnist Marlena Delacroix were strong and opinionated women, who you might not always agree with but who were certainly intelligent.

The magazine went downhill almost immediately after Torchin was fired. Journalistic mistakes, lame opinions and horrible production led to the mag's downfall, plus a new focus on primetime dramas (all of which you can get, much better, from magazines like TV Guide and Entertainment Weekly).

I gave them a year to see if I would renew, and the only qualm I had about cancelling was the fact that I had been a subscriber for so long.

Used to be, SPW (as it preferred to be abbreviated), if it was not the first to report a daytime drama coming or going, was the one to cover it the best.

Today, SOW (as it deserves to be abbreviated) is at the bottom of the magazine shelf. Hooked on soaps? Go to Soap Opera Digest, go online, go somewhere where you will be respected as a reader and a viewer.

4-0 out of 5 stars All My Soaps
I really enjoy reading this magaizine. It is not compliled with a number of pages that will take a while to read through to get to what I am searching for. I enjoy that it is light weight and I can carry it anywhere. I also enjoy that it is less expensive and I can get most of the information I am interested in without buying a small book, as the other magazines in your competion. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Very average
Ok, the secret is out... I'm a closet soap opera fan. I watch As The World Turns and Guiding Light regularly, and occasionally All My Children. This magazine is ideal for someone who's a casual viewer and only follows one network. The writing is that great, although it isn't bad, per se. It's just very elementary. Other magazines about soaps have more intelligent critiques of acting and stories. The "spoilers" aren't as good as in other magazines, either, and the recaps aren't as up to date as in SOD or SPW. Overall, for what it costs, I'd say just get Soap Opera Digest or Soap Opera Weekly. It's a bit better than Soap Opera Update, though, which is why I gave it 2 stars as opposed to 1. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars my favorite soap opera magazine
I love this magazine because it has up to date information and tongue in cheek sections like "Tackiest Weddings"

5-0 out of 5 stars the best
of all the soap magazines this one is the best & I have received all of them. It had great information and lets you know what will be happening not some that happened a week ago. If you want to read a soap magazine get this one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Read
since the Young&The Restless is my favorite Soap this Magazine provides a cool glimpse into the coming week or weeks ahead on things.they have a cool overview on topics with the people in the casts&changes that occur.a cool read for all your favorite soaps.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great way to get up to date on all your favorite soaps
I'm a working shlub, so most of the time I don't get to see my favorite soaps.Yes, I said my favorite soaps.My name is Patrick and I like watching soap operas.*gosh that was harder than I thought*.I grew up with soaps because of my mother and during summers and breaks, it was very easy to get back into them.So, I've latched on to a few I like (As The World Turns being my favorite), but I work.This makes it hard to stay on top of what is going on on various show, or when to expect momentous storylines to come to fruition.Fortunately, there's "Soap Opera Digest".It has a lot of nice feature stories for when I have more time, but it also has a lot of 'quick hit' sections that can bring up to date on what's going on with every show.There's a late-breaking news section to announce major cast changes or future landmark storylines.A 'VCR Alert' section gives upcoming dates on each show that will have major plot developments.There's a 'coming and going' section to keep me up to date on what's happening with the constantly revolving casts.Finally, there's a comprehensive recap section for each show reviewing the past week's events, while also providing teasers about future storylines.Yeah, I'm a dork and readily admit that I like soaps.Thanks to this magazine, I can always keep up to date on them.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Value for the Money
Look, if you are a hardcore soap fan, this magazine will provide you with a ton of information about what's about to happen on your soaps week to week. Given that the newsstand cost is $3.50 per issue, this annual subscription rate is not bad at all. I actually check out both SOD and Soap Opera Weekly. If I had to choose between the two of them, I think I would get Soap Opera Weekly. But if you like and can afford both, you should. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars More than a fan mag - more than a TV show!
If you are a fan of the world of Doctor Who, you can not go wrong subscribing. Past,present, and future issues are covered on a regular basis. The magazine has in depth articles regarding its history and those who played a role in it.Each issue also comes with an animated comic of the current Doctor(in COLOR even!) and very professionally done. There are reviews on every new product including DVDs, CDs,Books, and Audio Dramas. Once a year there is a FREE CD issue that includes an exclusive audio drama from Big Finish Productions. There are very humorous and enlightening editorials in each issue. All spin off series are covered as well (i.e. Bernice Summerfield, Faction Paradox, etc. ).

Overall the magazines visuals are excellent. They have the largest library of exclusive Dr. Who photos on Earth.

The only thing that I can complain about is the price - I could buy a lot of the books for this price. But where else are you going to get such extensive coverage? Cheap fan mags are okay, but this goes far beyond!

And for those of you who have not kept up with Dr. Who - it is no longer 'just' a tv show - it is a genre. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Targeted toward the dumbest marks.
Now, there's nothing wrong with being a mark. At some point in their life, every wrestling fan was a mark. Now with the growing popularity of the internet, more and more fans are becoming smarks (which has the potential to eventually put this magazine out of business).

Back in 1998, I was a mark. I was addicted to the WWF and had to have every piece of merchandise on it that I could find. Also back then, since SmackDown! hadn't even debuted yet, this magazine was just simply called "WWF Magazine". Needless to say, I got myself a two-year subscribtion and was usually enthusiastic when it came in the mail.

When I got a bit older (and smarter), I realized just how bad this magazine was. It's obviously just targeted to marks, since all of the columns act like everything in wrestling is 100% real. If that wasn't bad enough, the writers of these columns try to make it seem like these are deep, thought-provoking issues, and even try to travel into the minds of what these fictional characters are possibly thinking.

Another thing that bugged me was how outdated this magazine always was. For example, I'd get an issue an February, and all they'd be talking about was stuff that happened in December. It's sometimes ebarassing when you read an article that questions "How long will the fued between The Rock and Ken Shamrock last?", when in reality, the fued already ended long ago. That's just the thing about wrestling - it's a fast-paced business and everything can change at the drop of a hat.

5-0 out of 5 stars WWE hardcore fan
Smackdown magazine gives you the inside details of your favorite wrestlers [good and bad]. If you like Thursday Smackdown then this magazine is for YOU! PLUS, the pictures are awesome. Most of the time the poster they have in WWE magazine are really great to hang on the wall.
It gets even better! If you get both Raw and Smackdown magazine deliver to your house you won't be dissappointed. It has high impact photos, interviews of your favorite wrestlers, up coming shows and payper view that might come to your area and so much more!
Smack your computer and order it NOW!

5-0 out of 5 stars A WWE fans DREAM
This magazine is great. It goes inside smackdown and talks personally with some of the smackdown talent. This is a great magazine and i recomend it to any WWE fan even if you don'y watch snackdown, it's good way to keep in touch with the wrestling world!

1-0 out of 5 stars A Bad Magazine
This magazine started out as WWE Magazine then they decided to change the name to Smackdown Magazine and what was worse is that they didn't even give people a chance to cancel their subscription if they wanted to. This magazine is nothing but a piece of crap!!!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic SF Magazine
This magazine is fantastic. It's a shame it can't be found in Australia any more. I love the pictures and articles, on every SF show known to SF fans. Maybe it's time to ship some more out to the SF starved fans here in Oz. A quality magazine like Starlog is hard to find.

5-0 out of 5 stars Passionate about all things Science Fiction
This is the only magazine that I've maintained my subscription to for more than a decade. If you are passionate about science fiction you will love this magazine. It covers all topics related to Science Fiction. Obviously this includes movies and television, but in every issue there are regular features that cover what is new in science fiction books, animes, games and comics.

While I enjoy their coverage of the newest big-budget, blockbuster movies, I also appreciate that they understand that there are many fans with less mainstream tastes. Starlog regularly has articles devoted to long forgotten or "cult" science fiction tv and movies of the past. Heck, even most of the advertisements are science fiction oriented.

If you want to know what is happening in the world of sci-fi this is your source. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Still Worth Reading
As a previous reviewer said, Soap Opera Weekly lost some of its bite when its original editor was fired. It used to be more seriousin its presentation of the soap world and more critical. That said, I still think it's worth a read if only to catch up on what's going on both on and behind the screen. I don't think someone really interested in finding out what's happening in the soap world can totally ignore it. Supplement this with Soap Opera Digest and you've pretty much got all the news you need to know about what's happening in the daytime world of television.

4-0 out of 5 stars Up Close With Soaps: From "Passions" to "General Hospital"
I'm a big fan of NBC's "Passions" and Soap Opera Weekly has done a great job pitching Jim Reilly's wacky and wonderful soap from its infancy in 1999 to its present day status as one of the most unique soaps on the air.
"Soap Opera Weekly" also offers up-to-date sneak peeks, who's in, who's out plus great profiles and well versed critiques of some of daytime's best performers. The price is also right. No matter what soap you watch, SOD has plenty of info to offer. Lastly, their covers are terrific. I buy it as often as I can.

1-0 out of 5 stars How the mighty have fallen.
I am a disillusioned former subscriber to Soap Opera Weekly. After about seven years of receiving this magazine every week in the mail, it finally got too bad to be worth my time and money.

In the beginning, Weekly was a dream, something that should have been read whether or not one actually watched soap operas. Mimi Torchin, former editor, and columnist Marlena Delacroix were strong and opinionated women, who you might not always agree with but who were certainly intelligent.

The magazine went downhill almost immediately after Torchin was fired. Journalistic mistakes, lame opinions and horrible production led to the mag's downfall, plus a new focus on primetime dramas (all of which you can get, much better, from magazines like TV Guide and Entertainment Weekly).

I gave them a year to see if I would renew, and the only qualm I had about cancelling was the fact that I had been a subscriber for so long.

Used to be, SPW (as it preferred to be abbreviated), if it was not the first to report a daytime drama coming or going, was the one to cover it the best.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Simpsons Comic Issue number 88
Usually in "The Simpsons Comics", there are a number of different stories on the Simpsons unsual events but in this particular comic, the editor takes a completely different aproch to entertain us, the readers, by devolping a few stories into one masvise saga. In this certain comic, it goes back and forth through time as the content of the story is about Araham Lincon being, as all knows, the face on the 5 doller American bill. The crazy and unpreditable John Frink (or Prof. Frink as he is known) is the one who goes between present and past and aims to stop Araham Lincon from being assissinated by an actor because Lincon ate his "Well Done" basket of fruit for his preformence on stage. (As you may have guessed, Homer in this case is President Lincon). Prof. Frink saves the day and to his suprise, when he returns back to his home sweet home, his face is on the 5 doller bill that during the storyline was past on from person to person leading up to the great journey for the all loved and hilalious character "Prof. John Frink" of Springfield. ...
