I alluded in my last Doctor Who post that there was a reason it was taking me so long with posts. I started this blog because sometimes I have a lot of thoughts after an episode of a series and it’s too much to post in a discussion on a fan board or someone’s else’s blog. But, I’ve made a mistake in thinking I have to post on every episode of every show I watch. It’s starting to ruin my enjoyment of those shows and I’ve gotten way behind on a few of them. Whenever I sit down to watch something, I think “Oh, I don’t feel like or have time to make notes right now.” and move on to something I don’t blog about. Also, sometimes, it’s difficult to find anything to say. There are a lot of enjoyable episodes that just don’t spark an “OMG, I have questions/comments!” moment. Especially with procedural shows like Bones or Castle.
So, I’ve made a decision. I’m not going to stop blogging but I’m not going to force myself to write about every show. I’m going to watch an episode and if I have something to say afterward, I’ll post. If not, I won’t. There are certain shows like Doctor Who, The Walking Dead and True Blood that I’ll probably post about every episode.
I did get caught up on a few shows over the holidays, though and I may go back and write about a couple of them later on.
