What do you want to see in a season preview post?

No! Windows 7 was my idea!

So Scamp’s spring 2010 season preview post reminded me that it’s that time of the year again. It’s like clockwork. As soon as I get some distance from the previous season preview post, chartfags releases a new chart and suddenly it’s time for a new season. It’s a vicious cycle that will never be resolved until I can one day knock the Earth from its rotational axis.

But it’s also the time of the year where I start agonizing about how to set the post up. There’s a couple reasons for this. One is that I’ve never been happy with the way I’ve written and laid out the posts in the past. The second is that I’m constantly looking for a unique ways to present that information – without being unnecessarily flashy or having a crappy user experience (this is the toughest part). I think I spent 10+ hours designing something for the last Winter post that I ultimately scrapped because I thought it got too flashy for flashy sake and didn’t anything useful.

So I humbly submit myself to the citizens of the world wide web. What do you want to see from a season preview post? At the very least, I’m assuming the basics: a picture, a short synopsis and some thoughts on the show. What other info would you want to see? Is there anything else? How would you want to see it? Lay all your hopes and dreams on me! Love and peace! (Sorry, stepping back to reality.)

Obviously, I can’t guarantee anything, but I’d love to hear what you all are thinking out there. Make Season Preview version 5.0 your idea.
