Third time’s a charm

Submitted by on October 1, 2012 – 2:51 PM15 Comments

Who has two thumbs and watched the first seasons of Revenge AND Homeland in a single weekend, then wrote three recaps in one night? This guy. …Not that guy, he’s dead. This guy. Who is now working at Yahoo! TV, as God intended. FEAR ME, SUNDAY-NIGHT SKED.

(I’m exhausted.)

Yes, this is my third gig at Yahoo! in exactly one year. No, I don’t think they’ll move me over to Finance in three months. Come on over and comment.

    Yaaaay! Now start watching Sons of Anarchy and my bliss will be complete.

  • Nicole says:

    Sars recapping tv shows again? Is it Christmas already? YAY!

  • Leigh in CO says:

    Zoiks, thatsalotta recap! This makes my day. Is the TV gig a move, or additive?

  • Sarah D. Bunting says:

    Aw, thanks, guys. This is a move. I was “traded within the division.” Really sad to leave Shine, which is a truly incredible team, but making fun of Declan Porter for money is a tough gig to resist.

  • Sean says:

    So: Revenge. (Or, Reven8e, whatever.) Worth catching up on? I’m DVRing the second season in the midst of believing I’ll Netflix my way through Season One, but you can stop me now if I’m wasting my time.

  • Ben says:

    Agreed Nicole, it’s like Christmas. Readable, well-edited and actually funny recaps? There should be a whole website of that.

  • ferretrick says:

    @Sean: Oh yeah, Revenge is the kind of show the term “guilty pleasure” was invented for. So much campy fun-Madeline Stowe and Emily Van Camp devouring the scenery and each other, Gabriel Mann’s quips, it’s all good.

  • Bo says:

    Sean, I watched the recap of season 1 ABC broadcast last week and was really tempted then to watch the show. But I have a full roster at the moment. Even if you can get ahold of that recap show, you’ll be set for season 2.

  • attica says:

    The Sunday night schedule has brought Alan Sepinwall down. How awesome is it that you’ve got your boot on his neck? (Metaphorically, of course…)

  • Sarah D. Bunting says:

    Aw, I’m not trying to rumble with my man Sepinwall. We North Jersey cats gotta stick together.

  • Maria says:

    I was literally giggling and clapping with glee when you tweeted links to your recaps yesterday! Now if only I watched these shows… Hello, Netflix!

  • attica says:

    It takes me two dvrs and several days to complete my Sunday night viewing. I can only sympathize with them that have deadlines on top of that.

    Why don’t network programmers take pity on us all?

  • Kay says:

    What’s funny about your move is that Shine just taught me today that my kitty bonking his head on my every night is called…wait for it…bunting!

  • Sandman says:

    … but making fun of Declan Porter for money is a tough gig to resist.

    Hot damn! I’m taking this as a late birthday present, ‘kay?

  • Sarah D. Bunting says:

    making fun of Declan Porter for money is a tough gig to resist

    You know I’d do it for free. And have. “FAST FORWARD”
