I’ve noticed that it’s been more and more difficult for me to find the time, energy, and enthusiasm to recap lately. It’s started to feel like more of a chore than a fun hobby. Which sucks for me, but also makes my writing worse and means that I put off writing, editing, and posting. There are drafts of recaps that I’ve put together from months ago, that I still haven’t posted.
So my inability to get a quick-enough turn around is one of the reasons I’m going to retire recapping. For now at least. I rest happy in the knowledge that there are numerous recappers who can, and do, make that turn-around and do it better than me. The other part is that fewer and fewer people are writing for, and visiting OCTV. Which is a cyclical problem, because we stop putting up content in a regular, timely manner, so people stop checking. It makes sense, but I’m frustrated, and I want writing about, and thinking about TV to be fun again, so I’m going to do this instead!
This is going to be a (hopefully) regular feature called Television Tuesdays where I take a break to talk about tv. Maybe it’ll be about a show I’ve been marathoning recently. It could be a list of of shows I’ve watched. Maybe I’ll find a theme that’s common across a bunch of shows I’ve been watching and I write about it. Who knows?
The important thing is, I’m excited about it. I’m excited to not feel beholden to writing detailed posts that sometimes feel like they’re just a poor regurgitation of the show you just watched.
Tomorrow’s the inaugural post. I’ll be talking about Agent Carter. Get excited.
