I thought I was going to be able to handle two series over the summer, True Blood and Teen Wolf. Unfortunately, I’ve come to realize that it’s just too much.
The thing is, I kind of like Teen Wolf right now. I’m watching last week’s episode as I write this, and the whole thing with Chris Argent kidnapping his daughter in order to “train” her is wonderfully awful. I want to know what the Lizard Thing is – and if it’s Lydia. I want to know if Stiles will ever make First Line.
Okay, I might be lying about that last part.
So, it’s not Teen Wolf, it’s me (and this post just became every guy breaking up with every girl ever). I don’t want my writing to become work, and juggling two shows at once is too much. A recap post takes about four hours by the time all is said and done, and that doesn’t count responding to comments (which I really do hope to be better about in the future). And since Teen Wolf doesn’t have as big a draw as True Blood, and since Teen Wolf‘s 22-episode season will run right up to, and maybe overlap with, the next season of Vampire Diaries … I have to call it a day.
I’ll still be watching, and still be around on Twitter to talk about the show, but that’s as much time as I can commit to it.
