Likewise, The Village Voice

The Village Voice has posted it’s review of The Farnsworth Invention:

Farnsworth never explores any aspect of the story deeply. From the sources of the stirrings that made a rural potato-farmer’s kid an electronics whiz by high-school age to the seismic shift in social patterns caused by the mass success of radio and then TV, everything is brushed in, snappily, with a factoid or two, encased in a wisecrack whenever possible, as on those TV docudramas that leave you wishing you’d been told the real story instead.

And to think… the real story was right there all the time… <*sigh*>
