Reviews (2018)

The main goal of this year was a ‘return to form’.  For years prior, I’ve spent time refining my writing to make sure that I came out with a good product every time that people would want to read.  Of course results on THAT aspect may vary, but much of what is written here is analytical with a more natural flow and some more personal bias added into it to explain my reasons for liking/disliking a show.  This is mostly done by getting rid of the ‘three questions’ that have plagued the reviews for years, and the section feels a lot more natural now without it.  That’s what I think at least.
