Change of plans...

You know what? I don't like where this blog is going.

Yes, wasn't expecting an update with me, didn't you? Well, truth the matter is, the interest I had for the idea of this blog died off the moment I finished episode 12, becuase the tedium of the fillers got to me quicker than I thought. Doesn't help that I'm much more interested in the idea of reviewing in detail than just point out things only a few notice. Besides, I realized no one is learning anything from observations some kid had in his spare time to some show that only a select number of people still remember, so instead of wasting their time, why not give them something to remember? Why not give them ideas and thought that make them say, "You know, I never thought of it that way."

So, I'm changing the focus of the blog. Instead of making observations, I'm going to do what I should of done when I started this blog that some bloggers I read are still doing; making reviews of the episodes themselves and see if they truly deserve the praise the fanbase is giving.

Wish me luck.

Well, I'm torn with your decision to change the blog's focus. I really loved your observations, buts it's totally understandable that filler eps. are way to tedious and it's a lot of work. Llike you said, reviews of the episodes have already been done by other bloggers, so I'm not totally hyped that you've decided to take that path but as long as it gets you back to blogging and back to the BSSM world, then I'm fine with it. :)

G'luck! Hope to see your new stuff soon!

I forgot all about this blog! I wish you would continue but its your choice. A good blog takes time to become popular only if you keep giving fans something to read.

Well, I've just binged everything and I have to say I'm pleased.

I do hope you continue. There will always be problems with doing summaries - at worst, it can come off as reading off the ingredients in a cereal box. You can tell what's in there but you can't necessarily make it interesting.

There's the potential to be more critical, point out the flaws with a big sense of humor - a lulzblog, a liveblog, whatever you'd call it. That works better with something that's camp enough or bad enough to be made fun of with the right presentation. It's a difficult thing...

My mind goes back to the Blogger Beware blog. It's very popular and the setup is great, and I think doing some of the things Troy Steele does might work - pointing out the common theme of the day, this, that, you can see the blog here. http://www.bloggerbeware.com/ Of course, doing so many pop culture references and making fun of the series would not work so well. I mean, just for inspiration when it comes to summarizing in a good way.

Because I've seen a lot of un-special episode summaries with BSSM, I am a bit uneasy, but I think with your voice you can make it work quite well. An important thing is that I've never seen anyone else point out the more technical aspects of the series. There's an occasional "The animation was bad for this episode" but re-examining the film theory aspects is something I've been really happy to do, but then again, I'm a huge nerd. :P

It's 2011... you'll continue, right?
