This week marked the 350th birthday of the state of New Jersey.  The website officialnj350.com is filled with fun things to do throughout the state to celebrate, as well as fascinating articles about New Jersey’s history and culture.  One of those articles was written by critic and founder of the popular online magazine "TV Worth Watching" David Bianculli.  He’s been a TV critic since 1975, and is a regular contributor to NPR’s "Fresh Air with Terry Gross."  A resident of New Jersey, he’s also an associate professor of television and film history at Rowan University.  Producer Christopher Benincasa met with Bianculli to talk about the birth of the film industry in the Garden State, and how New Jersey has persisted in media and the public imagination ever since.
