Moving On

I've decided to end my non-paying weekly Boomtron reviews of The Big Bang Theory, Bones, Burn Notice, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, and Psych. In my two years of service, the higher-ups at Boomtron always had final control over what was posted. For much of that time, my editor was Elena Wolf, who, with very few exceptions, liked my work.

Three weeks ago, Elena had to step down as my editor due to a change at her day job. Since then, I'd been concerned I wouldn't meet what my new editor wanted from the reviews. Boomtron also sent word this week of an eventual move away from regular reviews to specialized pieces.

Most writing is subjective by nature. What suits one editor doesn't sit well with another, but any editor has the right to publish what s/he wants. Looking forward to my next opportunity, I hope you enjoyed my work for Boomtron. I thank them and wish them the best.

I remain a fan of the above shows and more, so you'll see reviews here if I particularly like or dislike an episode, and you may catch me on Twitter as I'm watching TV.

Thanks Gerald-I've enjoyed your reviews. Best.

Well, look at it this way:
A) You can watch the shows without thinking beyond simple enjoyment.
B) You can use that time to do new things.

Always enjoy your thoughts and opinions.

Thanks, David and Jeremy. Already doing some of both.
