Not bad, but incorrectly named - they barely mentioned a few books in passing. The focus was on movies and TV.

I recorded it but haven't watched yet.  How does the title imply books?

That's the point - the title doesn't imply any medium. Given the rich history of SF in print (going back at last to H.G. Wells), I'd think a show named "The Real History of Science Fiction" would give it more than passing mention.

I knew a guy that said Science Fiction denoted literature, SciFi TV and movies. I've heard worse :)
