I've enjoyed your other columns, so I'm sure you'll continue to do a great job.  Congrats!

An official welcome aboard...or welcome back aboard...or congratulation to your promotion to starfleet captain. Does Tyler Perry pin a medal on you? Do I salute?

Or is this a Darth Vader promotion: "You are in command now, Admiral Bob!"

I agree with Karas that it would be good to have a weekly TV column and reviews on genre shows.

Glad to see are piloting this ship now Bob. I also like that you are now actually sending out tweets since I don't have the site up all day.

My request would be to have more updates/reviews on the latest in anime along with the movie and tv news.

 Trate, i also want you tell me you'll never leave.  i have abandoment issues since Jarrod left.  oh and I'm in need of $10, so if you can send that my way I'd appreciate it.

I second hanso's first comment...and actually the 10 dollar part in his other comment.  This site needs a serious update, I was never a fan of the change to this format but when it killed the profiles it was hard to talk back and forth with our peeps about things that you were not covering.

I also would like to see more reviews but save them for the shows that are hits.  No offense to my fellow mania people but if your fav show has limited audience it shouldn't get a review.  Walking Dead may not be everyones cup of tea but it is one of the highest rated genre shows out there thus it deserves a review just like Game of thrones currently is and has one as well.  I would suspect that Bob has limited number of people to do these reviews so he should pick accordingly. I think one of the reasons why the book section went away was that no one was ever looking at it, that would be the same argument for show reviews of the ones no one is watching.

Hobbs, I agree that not every show should be reviewed.  But I do think they should review more than one show at a time.  Walking Dead was reviewed but that's over for the season so Game of Thrones is being reviewed.  Even if a genre show isn't super high rated generally the people here are more than likely watching it.  We are genre fans who come to a genre website after all.

Guys and Kara, Trate is the new News Editor, not Mr. Money Man Trate.  See you need $ to get more TV reviews.  You also need hits on the TV review articles which wasn't happening.  Ergo vis a vis Matrix Architect talk, we are out of luck.

 Heck, give us a poll with our favorite genre shows that we'd like to see reviewed on the site and let us vote.  Take the top 4 or 5 and run with it.  Maybe even taking "fan reviews" like Karas used to do.  Might lead to a paying gig for somebody down the road.

lusiphur 4/9/2012 2:19:55 PM

 hanso - if he's handing out $10 to all of us who ask, he must be Mr. Money Man Trate.  

Just so long as the reviews stay on the main site and don't redirect us to somewhere else in cyberspace like they did for a while.  It was an inconvenience that seemed to lead to the demise of reviews.

kusiphur, that is a great idea, let's vote on the major shows the majority wants and then go from there.

Same with comics...heck, I'd do it for free if you need to but, lots of opportunities out there.
