I’m actually kind of bummed right now. Television Without Pity is going to be shutting down as of April 4th.
If you’ve never heard of TWoP, well, it’s a site that does — or did — long recaps of TV shows. (Primarily, anyway. They also wrote movie reviews and covered award season and the like.) A reviewer would be assigned to a show and would write recaps of every episode, long, detailed, extremely snarky recaps. I’ve been reading TWoP since I was in junior college, so . . . about ten years now, and it’s no big shock to say that it’s been an influence on my own writing and certainly on this blog. I totally dreamed of getting a part-time gig working there someday, and I kind of can’t believe I won’t be able to read it any more. Seriously, ten years I’ve gone to this website pretty much daily. It feels totally strange that it just won’t be a thing in about a week.
Dammit. This is depressing. I think I might have to bust into my ice cream for breakfast.
