Who here reads Television Without Pity? Because I might have to quit my job so that I can do that full time.

I’ve made the sad realization that I often miss what is obvious to everyone else. Reading the show recaps I read a lot of sentences like, “And just to make X totally obvious, they do Y.” And I think: Oh, I didn’t notice that.

On a similar note I just watched the director commentary for Return of the King and Peter Jackson was saying that it’s just totally obvious what it means when Frodo gets on the boat with the elves at the end of the movie. And I thought: He’s just visiting the elves, right?

  1. I love TWoP. I usually only read the recaps of the shows I watch, but occasionally will check out others. Most of it is brilliant, but the guy who recaps my two favorite shows (Battlestar Galactica and Doctor Who) is a bit of a windbag who thinks he’s writing literary commentary. Miss Alli more than makes up for it, though.

    • I went through the last season of The Amazing Race, which was great, and just finished both seasons of Lost. Next up for me is Alias.
      I’ve never seen Dr. Who but am thinking I’ll have to fix that.
