Damn Fine TV is creating Thoughts on Television
4

patrons

An avid reader of TV Guide in my youth, I've been a fan of all things television since I can remember. I've been writing about TV professionally for the better part of five years now, but the first show I ever truly reviewed was Dawson's Creek. I did things a little differently back then though. The Internet did not look the same as it does today back when I was 11 (we were still in the age of Dial-Up modem) so instead of sharing my writings online, I would read my recaps aloud during school recess to all my fans - which was, like, maybe 3 people. But my passion for story - the kind that uses actors and cameras to convey them - has always stuck with me. These days, when I'm not watching or writing about TV, you can find me listening to podcasts or reading reviews about, well, TV. 

Damn Fine TV and the Damn Fine TV Podcast are my way of sharing my musings on all things TV with the world. It's always my aim to break down plot, character, and tone in ways that help readers form a deeper appreciation for all of the visual stories they're watching. And, sometimes, to help people see why a show just isn't up to snuff. I hope to make this writing/podcasting thing a full-time gig one day, and my first step towards that dream is creating this Patreon page. Huge thanks to anyone who decides to become a patron, I am humbled by your belief that my work deserves a few of your hard-earned dollars. I have some big plans for this project and I'd be thrilled to have you along for the journey, which is sure to be both wonderful and strange!

A brief explanation of the articles available to both the $1 & $3 tiers:

Queens of the Small Screen: Each month I'll highlight a different woman working in television - from writers to directors, and actors to the characters they play. Past columns have included: Nora Durst from The Leftovers, and Hilary Bettis a writer for The Americans. 

Mixed Medium: A category that covers everything from the latest in TV news to themes trending in current TV, and, from time to time, a review/analysis of a show I happen to be re-watching. Past columns have included topics like Killing Eve, The Emmys, and the problem with toxic misogyny in TV fandoms. 

And for $3 members:

Ultimately, you will decide on the shows you want me to podcast about, but to get the ball rolling I figured I'd put a couple ideas out there. For a new show, how about the new Netflix series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina? For an older show, I'm always down for a re-watch of Twin Peaks (both the original and The Return.) Again, it's all up to you guys, so sign up and get requesting!
