TV Antenna Types?



Is there a basic run down on the different TV antenna types and how each of them perform? Say, indoor antennas vs outdoor antennas? Yagi type antennas vs Parabolic? I'm trying to learn a bit more before I purchase my next antenna.

The dynamics of different antenna designs would fill an entire textbook and when you finished reading it, you would have learned only antenna theory. There's nothing wrong with that, but it has nothing to do with 'real world' applications where there are hills, trees and buildings as variables to consider.
