Are you watching as many TV shows as we are? Are you fascinated by serialized storytelling to the point of talking about it non-stop, with anyone who comes into vicinity and has at least heard about your latest TV obsession? Are you constantly searching for discussions, meta analysis and reviews of TV series only to find the never-ending recaps, gifs, fanfics and no proper material to base your essays (or maybe even thesis?) on? Well, in that case, we’re you.
We live in what many call the golden age of television. We have so many shows to pick and choose from that binge-watching has become routine, and most of our online and offline conversations inadvertently come back to that last episode of Game of Thrones, or whatever crazy fan theory the internet has come up with about Rick and Morty, or who should have ended up with whom on How I Met Your Mother. Some shows impress us so much that we can’t stop thinking about them, argue about them, or re-watch them, and every fresh opinion seems to add to the overall awesomeness that are those shows. So we turn to reviews, podcasts, discussion boards that help us delve into the depths of each amazing episode and dissect it in order to learn as much as possible about its message, philosophy, allegories it uses to drive its themes home, and the multiplicity of story arcs that are perfectly and so elegantly united in one single scene.
But problem is — it’s become harder and harder to navigate the internet in order to find quality content, interpretations that provide great analysis of cinematography, philosophy, storytelling techniques, psychology, character studies, uses of metaphores and so on. Search engines often lead us to the next best review that, while being enlightening and entertaining, doesn’t help us understand the show better, rather recaps what we already appreciate (or criticize) about it ourselves.
So the whole point of this website is to become a directory for all the scholarly content written, recorded or published about various TV shows.
