1) Pretty much the only show that I’m guaranteeing to write a review for every episode this season is Gilmore Girls.
2) Any absence of a review for any given show is not to be taken as any indication of what I think of it. Like you, I’m just watching a lot of TV shows and there’s just not enough time in the day to cover them all even IF I stopped watch CSI, CSI: Miami, Law & Order and SVU. BTW, Mariska Hargitay sure looked purty up there onstage getting her Emmy last night, but she sure didn’t deserve the Emmy for that episode (the terribly-acted, terribly-directed, blatantly obvious and blatantly obviously Emmy-bait-ish “911.”) But I digress . . .
3) My reviews may be full reviews with letter grades or they may be general commentary about the gist and/or general direction of the show. Yes, IMO, the graded reviews should be considered to carry more weight. Conversely, ungraded commentary will almost always be intended to voice concerns abot the show that I am hoping that its creators address in the near future and such concerns will then likely be the focus of at least one fully graded review of a given episode *when I feel like it.* Or, sometimes, all you might get is ungraded commentary.
3a) If given enough lead time, I do take requests, but only about scripted fiction. No reality shows, no nature documentaries, no gory real-life hospital stories on Discovery Health. I’m all about the stories.
4) I’ll admit it now: I’m a screener whore. Hint, hint.
Edited to change a LOT of typos and clarify a phrase or three. I didn’t sleep much last night.
