TV Critics are going to have to grab Niches and stick to them.
As a critic myself I can empathise with this and really it comes down to how much time and dedication you want to put into it. I spend a solid 6 hours a day watching TV or playing games with the sole intent of uploading content for my site and making others' life easier to steer clear of the crap and digest the gold. Especially those who like my style of writing and what I look for in a TV show.
I review because, well, it's an addiction and I love doing it. Do I feel overwhelmed? All the god damn time. I have a diary that's regularly bloated with more show release dates than I care to sink the time into but I love reviewing and truly feel like I've found my passion in life. I get no monetary value for doing what I do but it doesn't motivate me - I love writing and that's enough for me.
Every Friday becomes a head-scratching internal debate with myself over which of the 5 Netflix shows I'll watch first, whether I'll watch a film or even drop another 4 hours into gaming but y'know what? That's what makes it so much fun. I can absolutely understand how this can be frustrating for those who like ticking everything off the list and completing every hour of cable TV and release dates for shows. Unless you have an army of writers at your back - it aint gunna happen!
TIL that in 1983 the head of a woman was found in a peat bog in England. A man assumed it belonged to his wife, who he had murdered and dumped in the bog in 1961, and made a full confession. The remains were dated and discovered to be 1750 years old. The man was still convicted of his wife's murder.
