Summer is here, so it’s time for some TNG reviews
So, last weekend I was sitting around watching reruns of The Big Bang Theory on TBS that I’d already seen two or three times, feeling settled after a busy week wrapping up the eighth week in my new career path (I am no longer in the newspaper industry, I’m both sorry and relieved to report, but that’s a blog for another day) — and I realized that here I was, actually wasting time and feeling bored about it.
I could no longer hide behind the excuse of “life is too busy” in procrastinating on the TNG review project. I looked at the calendar and realized that a whole year had now gone by since I finished up season five of TNG.
I right then pulled out the DVDs and watched some TNG episodes. I felt rusty, as if I wouldn’t even remember how to write a TNG review anymore after so long away from it. But, as is always the case, once I sat down and just started typing, it was like riding a bike to get back into that process. (I always know this before I even sit down, but it still feels like I don’t quite believe that it will come back naturally until I actually do it. Breaking that logjam; it’s gotta be done.)
So the logjam is broken. I have the first five reviews of TNG season six now posted, and my goal is to write at least three or four reviews every week through the summer until season six is finished. Then it will be on to season seven. I would still like to wrap TNG up in 2012.
So check back often, enjoy some new reviews, and leave your comments so we can all continue the dialogue. After all, these reviews, in their shorter format, are conducive for conversation-starting since I’m not covering every detail.
It’s nice to be back.
