Recaping the Recap - The NY Times reports on the behind the scenes drama at one of my favorite websites, Television Without Pity. The site lets you know that you don't have to be alone when watching a guilty pleasure and reassures you of your normalcy ("Oh thank goodness I'm not the only one who was incredibly distracted by her askew hairdo!" "I may watch hours of formulaic DIY shows, but at least I don't write 18 page recaps about each episode!") Plus, it's the number one place I can turn to if, God forbid, the TiVo goes haywire and neglects to record a favorite program.

There are volumes that can be written about fan/producer interactions, but I'm not quite prepared to delve into that topic in the blog yet. Potential thesis topic?
