Most people, magazines, whatever, come out with the top 10, best of,
or something like that for television. This site is almost like that,
but we don't claim to have the ultimate opinions like everyone else.
We like what we like. You don't have to listen to us, just drop in
and tell us you think we're full of it. Read everything first, though,
we don't like un-educated opinions. That's our niche!
Now onto the "shew" as that man who introduced most people to culture
usually stated. This is a list. A list in progress, in a constant
state of flux, as everything changes constantly. So, if you are one
of them who need everything NOW, you're in the wrong spot. We watch,
argue, decide, and then "choose" someone to write the manifesto on any
given show at any given time. Some of us actually leave our computer
tvs once in a while, and therefore tape shows to watch LATER, which
means that even though we're nearing a new calendar year and the
television midseason, we still aren't done with the late series and
season premieres or even the November sweeps episodes! Do we care?
What do you not think?
Anyways, our point is this, we try to keep up, but we may be behind,
so be patient and our opinions will come. We are "normal" tv viewers,
and hence, don't get the episodes in advance, but thanks to re-runs
and syndication, you can take our opinions and use them appropriately.
Another thing. We don't watch EVERY show. We watch what we like.
That's not to say we don't check out the new shows, we do. We give
them two episodes to prove themselves. Unfortunately, so do the
networks, which means even if we like a show, there is no guarantee
that anyone will ever see it again. Thank goodness for USA Network!
We try to alert people to campaigns to keep shows on the air or to
change networks, so that shows that we like can keep going. Again, if
we don't like them, you won't see that show's campaign here. In fact,
we might be so snotty as to wish them a happy demise! Then again...
NO, we will! If you don't like it, well, start your own site, we might
even list it here (providing of course, we like the concept of the
site and you don't just rip us off).
We are a fickle bunch. Onto the dial (do they even make those anymore?)...

Something of an explanation
We admit it. We watch a lot of television.
This site is just the American shows. We haven't decided what to do
about our tastes in British (aside from AYBS?), Australian, Canadian,
Mexican and Europop tv... yet. Be on the lookout!
We, the Leaper Guild of Television Watchers,(Doesn't that sound
pompous? We like it!) have decided that we want more out of life,
like, a life! Therefore, we have decided to ask our faithful web
readers (YOU) to join us. SO, if you want to join our mad society,
please email LGTW Yahoo Groups subscribe.
[**Emailing this address will subscribe you to the mailing list!}]
We haven't decided how we'll decide on who (if anyone applies) will
get the honor of the first non devilbunny/Fudd to post an opinion,
but rest assured, YOU will be the first to know. And for the first
applicant, we WILL publish your name and television habits just to
get a feeler. Everyone who emails an "application" will get a free
email response. Thats what we got back when we were struggling naughts
on the darpanet and that's what you'll get now on Gore's internet.
Also, if someone had an idea on how to do a calendar layout that
doesn't require java applets, we would appreciate the heads up-email
firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com Thanks!
Long live TiVo. Happy viewing! The LGTW
