August 27, 2010
Have you ever had one of those moments when you are trying to tell someone about something you just saw and you can’t remember the name of the show or possibly the actor? Perhaps, you have debated with a friend on the number of Nightmare on Elm Street sequels that have been made. Maybe, you are a big fan of Richard Dean Anderson, and you would really like to find a list of everything he has ever acted in.
Do you know where to go to quickly find the answers to these questions and more?
Try visiting the Internet Movie Database at www.imdb.com. This Web site can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection. It hosts a large catalog of information on actors and actresses in movies and television, as well as directors, writers, and other key players in the entertainment industry.
A typical page for a famous actor may contain images, a biography, links to news articles about the performer, and a chronological list of every project on which the actor has received a credit. Search for information on a television series and find images and video, air dates, plot summaries, and a cast listing. Even obscure movies are likely to have a page on IMDB.
So, the next time you have a few minutes to surf the web, stop by www.imdb.com and get acquainted. You may find that it becomes your primary resource when you need a quick answer to a question like, “how many seasons did Family Ties air?”
