Find Me On:
I pretty much have never written in a comments section to complain, because I’m all about the positivity, but I have to say this somewhere, and none of my friends go on this site, and I just want to voice this opinion one time, because internet (I stole that from someone in the comments section last week), so here goes: I love the site, but sometimes (sometimes, not always) I feel like the mission is to hate and complain and find things wrong about everything. That and never, ever break the rule that one must write sarcastically and in the same tone and voice all the time. I’m not trying to be a dick, I really do like this site, but does everything need to be drenched in sarcasm? And I’m not trying to say quit doing that entirely, not at all, I’m just trying to be reasonable and say can’t we sometimes drop the veneer? (I’ll be honest I’m not sure if I’m using that 100 percent correctly). It’s not my site to run, but it’s odd to look at Mad Men and Breaking Bad recaps that spend most of the time ripping on the shows when they’re pretty much brilliant and two of the best shows ever, and I certainly don’t walk away thinking they’re perfect but I also don’t walk away trying to find things wrong (I did love the True Blood recaps, because they deserved it and because you didn’t have to try to find things wrong with that show because there were so so many obvious things). Don’t you guys (and I mean Kelly and Gabe, who by the way I think are really good writers and most of the time really enjoy their voice and style) like anything? Even when you do like something, you still have to find everything that was wrong with it. Can’t there be the occasional change in style? Again, I actually love your style and voice, and even find myself emulating it in my own writing sometimes because it’s distinct and funny, but occasionally I feel like everyone’s is picking at everything so much that it takes away from the enjoyment of it. By nature, film and television narrative can’t be perfect, and sometimes it’s just nice to sit back and enjoy something. I know I’ve repeated myself a bit here but I just want to get out my point nicely and please don’t be mad at me because I respect you guys and the commenters on this site and would be kind of sad if people didn’t like me even though it’s the internet.
Did anyone notice how weird that high school girl’s eyes were on Community? Who is that? She was the strangest looking actress I’ve ever seen. Those eyes haunted me in my sleep….
I really get the feeling you hate this show…why even write a recap?
