Man I love that show

Let’s give a thanks to IMDb without it where would movie lovers be. How would we know if that’s the same actress/actor from a movie/tv show that we saw a long time ago. Without IMDb we wouldn’t know the name of  the actor that played that very sexy cop on Southland or what other movies were he/she in so we could watch those too. The site even tells you what movies/tv shows they are going to be.(Score!)   IMDb gives us information that we would have never knew about either. Did you know Scott Weinger who voiced Disney’s Aladdin played Steve, D.J.Tanner’s boyfriend on Full House!? (I knew that but I bet some people didn’t) and without IMDb I wouldn’t know the names of certain actors/actress in a television show so I want to thank you IMDb for everything.

Here’s some backstory, Internet Movie Database Site also known to the world as  IMDb,was  founded by it’s CEO Colin Needham from England  in 1990. At that time he was a engineer  in Bristol. It was said that when Needlham  was in college (around 1989 before the internet was popular) he watched a lot of movies. He could  however never remember/keep track of which movies he seen already. So he decided to make a personal log  for himself and to also give to his friends when they go rent movies. His idea became more popular when he joined a college movie dissuasion group. Where the main members were college guys who discussed mostly who was hottest actress in movies and which movies they also  in. (You can find more about this Article here) Also Robert Hartill a web designer and computer programmer also helped  create a interface of the Internet Movie Database. He first started creating a  design in 1994 while he was still attending Cardiff University in Wales. The first interface of IMDb was called Cardiff Internet Movie DatabaseIt wasn’t till 1996 that the company became separate giving it the name that we know today. You can also say Hartill is one of the first to make the World Wide Web popular today.  In 1998 Amazon brought IMDb.
