Introducing Idiot Box The Official Home of Correct TV Opinions
— Posted by Rodney
Introducing the brand new Idiot Box!
I started working on TheMovieBlog.com right at inception, and grew from associate writer, to primary staff to finally take over the site as its Senior Editor.
But Movies and TV tend to go hand in hand, yet I really didn’t have a place on TheMovieBlog to talk about TV stuff. I bent the rules a few times, but honestly it really didn’t belong on that site.
So a few years back we tried TheTVShowBlog and the only way we could see it working is to recruit fans to write about their favourite shows and episode recaps. We figured this would be fairly cyclical as these shows ran in seasons and three quarters of the year there would be no coverage from that show.
Well the idea fizzled out with about 3 months of running the site. I struggled as to how it failed and realized we had a winning model already on our hands. TheMovieBlog.com is never lacking stuff to talk about, so why should a TV site?
So this is what you can expect here. The same type of coverage you would expect to find over at TheMovieBlog.com, but all about TV stuff.
Where there is crossover, you might see an article posted on both sites, but this will be your Official Home of Correct TV Opinions
The name of the site, of course harkens back to a day where eggheads decided that spending too much time in front of a TV would melt your brain. Thus the nickname Idiot Box was given to TVs.
Special Thanks to Richard M (who was actually a co-host on my TMB Uncut Podast) who gave me the idea!
So come on by and check out Idiot Box and make it your daily read for TV news and opinion just like you have here!
