Jeff Pfeiffer

Jeff Pfeiffer has spent four decades watching, enjoying and thinking about TV and movies, with some of his earliest favorite series being reruns of the 1960s Spider-Man cartoon, as well as Japanese imports like Ultra Man. He still enjoys the simple guilty pleasures of some comic-book and sci-fi series, but also appreciates the complexity of the storytelling that dominates today’s golden age of TV. Jeff has put his critical eye —and his openness toward countless genres, from lowbrow to highbrow— to work unraveling those complexities over 17 years of entertainment journalism, including countless reviews and interviews for both print and web, at Channel Guide and TV Insider.
