It seems season preview posts are happening earlier and earlier these days. By the time the actual season rolls around, it’s like you gotta root through ancient history to remember what was what. Meanwhile, I’ve been doing the previews later and later. It’s at the cost of comments, but it seems to make sense to me. Sort of like how I don’t care about football season until baseball season is over, it’s hard for me to get psyched about the next season when we’re running right into the climax of the current season. So I’m bringing up the rear.
Three weeks at least into the new season and I haven’t done a post yet so I feel like I owe people an explanation. It’s all simple really, I haven’t done a post because nothing has attracted my interest enough to make me want to write about it. Everything this season is either mediocre, borderline porn, taken, or too controversial. There was no obvious hit coming out this season and I was quite looking forward to it. Every show had the potential to be the next hit, but on the other hand every show had the potential to be rubbish. So far I’ve watched nine of this season’s shows and you’d think that at least one would fit but I’ve got no luck.
My only goal for my summer preview was to do a better job than I did with the winter preview, in which I skipped mention of certain shows that I ended up watching anyway, clearly showing my lack of prophetic skills. Thankfully I set the bar pretty low then. If you have any thoughts for further improvement in the inevitable fall preview, feel free to drop a comment.
