Okay, it's been a day or so since we got word on Haven, we're slightly saner or at least less stuck in a permanent state of squee, and we have a lot of shit to organize. Fortunately we're both awesome at that, so we present to you the results!
Haven: We currently intend to recaplysize the remaining back eps, which is to say s2, and have that up on the blog starting around June, as we did with s1 last year. When s5 comes back in the fall, we plan to have the usual weekly post up on Saturdays. Now with 200% more swearing! Standard warning for backlog posts applies: there will be spoilers, they will be for the entire run of the show so far.
Sleepy Hollow: While Grimm is on hiatus for the Olympics, we plan to start working on s1 of this show. We've been watching since the pilot, but at the time we were still working our way through Person of Interest mayitrestinpeace, and thus didn't have the ability to devote time to a new show. While we're regretting that now, we'd like to make it up to y'all by providing new analysis of the content over the long, painful wait for s2. As with all backlog posts, they will be in light of all the information acquired over the course of the season. I really cannot urge you highly enough, if you haven't already seen the full season, to wait to read our posts until that time. Coming from us, who seek out and devour spoilers like John Noble devours scenery… let me put it this way. We did not see the twists in the finale coming. The foreshadowing was there. We cannot turn analysis-brain off, and these twists impressed us. Which is why we're blogging this show.
Grimm: This season has been rocky. You may have noticed. We have hope that that'll shape up; the writers, actors, crew, everyone very clearly would rather be doing exciting metaplot than boring procedural stuff. (Note that procedurals don't have to be boring; see also Haven and Sleepy Hollow. Just that Grimm is, right now.) That said, we're in a position to finish out the season and reevaluate where we want to go with it. Right now we're working on the assumption that we'll continue, since numbers for renewal are looking good. Assuming both of these things happen, what we'll probably end up doing on weekends where Grimm airs simultaneous with Haven next fall is plan for Grimm posts to be published the Sunday after airing. This gives us a little more breathing room. A little.
A word of warning for those who might be new to the blog as we start Sleepy Hollow: we swear a lot and, for future reference, we speak on many adult subjects in recaplyses, as these are adult programs which often touch on a number of issues. Please keep this in mind, and read and share responsibly.
