We’ve had some success with our TV columns and I would like to do more to cover TV on Fantasy. However, I do not want to bombard our readers with a bunch of TV coverage all the time. I think confining it to the end of the week is a good, and maybe not one post for every show. So I have conceived a plan to have posts on Fridays and Saturdays where columnists discuss the latest episodes of the one or two shows they’re assigned and then open up comments on them. I know a few of my current columnists will be interested, but in case there are other people dying to write up a short response to an episode of the shows they watch, I’m putting the call out to my readers as well.
As always, the job sadly does not involve pay. It does involve committing to one season of the show in question. Columns will be casual, like blog posts, filled with your opinion and a short recap. You are not required to love a show to do this. But fi you don’t like it, your dislike must be reasonable and not just “I want to stab Joss Whedon.” I mean, it’s fine to want to stab him, but at least let’s lay out all the reasons why in a semi-calm way ;)
If you’re interested, send me a note at this gmail address: fantastictempest. Tell me 1 – 3 shows you’d be interested in doing a column on. If you have blog posts about TV or related, include a few links. All SF or Fantasy shows are welcome.
