Laconic: 27. TV Junkie. TV Editor for Black Girl Nerds. Writer. Black. Nerdy. I love television. TV recaps; discussions on diversity and representation on camera and behind the scenes; my adventures in writing for/about TV.

“I’m the captain now.”
Wait—wrong movie. I haven’t seen that one.

Verbose: I love television like Abed loves television. I love television like Kenneth the Page loves television. I refer to it in everyday life and most of my friendships are formed after a long conversation about a TV show we have in common.

Knowing this–and a do what you love mentality–I came to the conclusion that I should probably work in television. I know it’s hard and not always reliable, but it’s the only career that makes my heart go pitter-patter with both fear and excitement.

This blog will be a place for me to share my love of and knowledge of television; how it works, what I love about it, and what I am learning as I try to break into the business. I think  want to pursue TV writing, but I’ve been doing more learning than writing, so here is an attempt to:

  1. blog to get my writing juices flowing,
  2. put myself out there as a person who loves to discuss TV,
  3. discuss issues of diversity and representation of minorities (specifically African-Americans) on and in television
  4. have somewhere to blather on about TV when I’ve annoyed all my real life friends with TV talk.

Please join me as I “study” television and attempt to get real life started.

I really like TV Tropes.

    girl, you are speaking my language we need to talk, I so agree with you concerning your blog on ‘black dvds’ the reason they dont sell them in the stores is because us black folks do not want to part with our money! we prefer to run to the bootlegger to supply our needs. We are too complacent and need to show the commercial world that we have money. If a black face is not on it; complain, dont buy it!, dont watch it! buy good quality products which includ a black face in the show, film or product! this could well be the answer to create a more diverse world. More people like me and you would find paid work. We the black community are our worst enemy we need to wake up. Dont let ‘ them’ dictate to us WE should let them know what we BUY money talks!!!!
