You know this might be getting dangerously close to bitching about other people`s viewing habits but am I seriously the only one weirded out when someone loves absolutely everything? Even shows I loved, even shows where I thought certain Seasons were near flawless were only ever NEAR flawless. There are always a couple turds in between.

With writers/showrunners now interacting and meddling with fans on social media, I wonder if they simply eat up the neverending praise in an "wow, my ego, it feels so good" way or if at a certain point they think "well, how much meaning does that compliment still hold"? I liked getting feedback on my little fanfics as much as the next person way back when but I just know some were simply not that well-written while I`m genuinely proud of others. So if someone had praised them all as the same, for me it would have made the whole thing meaningless.

It just feels, I don`t know sycophantic. And some bloggers covering shows are just the same, probably to ingratiate themselves with the PTBs and get access to interviews, set visits and all that stuff.

To me, that does noone any good. Writers will not strive to be any good if any horseshit gets praised.

I guess it depends on how much writers actually listen to bloggers and such, but I agree. In any case, merely praising your shows will not help you draw in more viewers. At least that's how it works for me and is why I don't touch some shows and really had to try hard to not just go "MEH" about others even while watching, like it happened to me with Firefly.

I don't see it as bitching cause really? No one can be happy about everything. It's against human nature. Nothing is that perfect to has no flaws. When you really like something you may decide not to focus on things you didn't like but you still admit there are things that could be done better. But to be happy about everything? Everything? It borders with being an idiot.

I know. It would mean absolutely squat to me if someone who liked everything told me they liked what I did, too. Oh well, you like my work as much as horseshit? Wow, thanks.

IKR! Their opinions have no value cause there's no critisism in them. At all. I get being positive and i like positive people but everything has its limits.
