While I do remember when Achy-Breaky Heart was a hit, I grew up in suburbia, where mullets have never been in style.

I wouldn't worry about it too much.  We all realize how hard it is to put something together in a week.  A less than spectacular OWC does not make you a moral failure or a bad human being.  We will mock you mercilessly though!

It's true.  I would say that everyone on here has had at least one OWC get totally panned, myself included.

Now I just need to get reading AND giving fair, detailed responses.

I think the problem is that sometimes people read other responses before they respond. Not even the reviewers are daring to be original it seems.

People use your own opinions please.


Family Picnic 10 pages.

After the Trade 3 pages

There goes Mike again.  Can't speak for himself.  Always agreeing with the opposite sex.  Funny, that same avatar you have happens to be the same picture of you that appears in my Fourth Edition American Heritage College Dictionary under 'whipped'.



:-)  What's up, by the way?  Long time no see.

Since we're on the subject of avatars, when did you join the hippie commune?

Nothing new here.  Just eatin' oranges and makin' IDs.

I think the point there is that there are a lot of people bandwagonning their reviews off of others instead of writing their own. I write what I want to say before looking at the other reviews. Why would I repeat information? Because the more the writer hears the same thing, the more likely it is to be true. If everyone just says "me too," what has anyone learned, including the reviewer?

Yes, reviewing takes practice too. Write your own words and then look at everyone else's. I agree with a lot of what I didn't write, but that doesn't mean I have to write that I agree with it after I've saved my comments.

I get what you're saying.  But again, in twelve pages there really isn't a lot to critique.  And if you're writing a review, and particularly a negative review, I'm not sure that pointing out the same things over and over is really helpful.  Just my opinion.

Okay, so you suggest that people read a script, form an opinion about it but as soon as they realise someone else has mentioned the same thing they should disregard their first opinion and come up with something else. Is that really an honest review?

If one person tells me my slugs are wrong and nine people don't I am gonna assume my slugs are fine. If ten people tell me my slugs are wrong I might start to think I am doing something wrong.

If something is wrong with a script then it is wrong, there is no point not mentioning just to be different. That also of course goes for things that are good about a script.

No offence JamminGirl, but I have just read your response to 'Down Under' where you quoted Lakewood's review in your own review and added this...


Quoted from JamminGirl
I agree. It took a while for the script to move forward.


Not much more to say on that really.
