    I get a lot of DVDs and TV screeners and do everything myself. It has gotten to
    a point where I sometimes have to turn down reviewing things because I simply
    do not have the time. I realize it would be a good idea to hire some support
    writers, but I cannot afford to pay them and while many websites compensate
    their staff members with allowing them to keep the movies they review, free
    DVDs won't pay the rent, put food on the table, and generally pay the bills. I
    know when I first started working for others I hated writing for free, but
    while it is good to get a start and experience, I find people will take
    advantage of others. So until or if I can afford to pay someone or unless they
    will get college credit that can be verified as an intern, I'll keep doing the
    work myself. Things may be slower sometimes, but they will get done and
    hopefully for my part, done well. Thank you.

    I also forgot to mention that generally from August through December is my
    busiest season because of the endless horror films that must be reviewed by
    halloween and then the titles that are released for the holidays must be done
    before Christmas or shortly after. That plus the Anniversary Report and Top Ten
    TV on DVD and DVD releases add to the crunch time. Especially when you are a
    one man show.

  5. Mark, really, you must proof these things if you don't want people to
    make relentless fun of you. There is so much inept grammar, so many
    sentences filled with malaprops, and so many pointless ramblings that it
    just boggles the mind. First off, do you really suppose people care
    about what you personally think of the show? Or, for that matter, your
    mentioning other series which have nothing to do with the review at
    hand?

    But I digress - let me cut to the chase: Did you or did you not start
    your "review" site to get free DVDs? Yes or no? What credentials do
    you have to be a "reviewer"? The fact that you've seen a few movies in
    your life? Because to be a "reviewer" one must have some sort of
    command of the English language, one must write with some lucidity
    (other than using your computer's thesaurus for words like "paradigm"),
    and, most importantly, one must at least have a rudimentary
    understanding of film. I guess if you respond with "Yes, I do it for
    free DVDs" that I'll understand. If it's something else then I just
    don't understand how anyone who takes themselves the least bit seriously
    would allow themselves to print a "review" that is "written" in the
    manner in which you write.

    I know you don't give a flying Wallenda about any of this, because those
    free DVDs keep coming - my point is, if you're going to continually post
    these things in various ngs, you SHOULD give a flying Wallenda about it.
    Meanwhile, those of us who take the time to read your "reviews" will
    continue to marvel at the fact that you ALLOW these things to be read.
