I'd totally do it if it was even a small paid position as I'm a stay at home mom looking for some regular writing work,but alas no one seems to be looking for that,lol.


I would do it in a heartbeat if I was a writer. Sounds like a dream job. However, I am no writer, just a fan of 3 of the crime drama's mentioned. I hope you find someone soon to cover them, I really missed their reviews this week. Although I don't think I have seen CSI Cyber reviewed at all this season.

@ Amy

As much time as I spend commenting on other peoples reviews I might as well be writing one, but I am not a writer either.
There don't seem to be many people anywhere that are interested in reviewing CSI Cyber this season. I was disappointed in season 1. Maybe past reviewers and potential reviews were also. I would think it would be tough to review a show you didn't like.

@ sojourner

I'll tell you what I told Amy. Let me be the judge of your skills. :-) Review something and send it to me! I was once a commenter on a site. Look at me now!


I write on this site constantly. Especially about SVU. I will be writing about more shows as time goes on. I can sometimes be a little nasty. No curse words.
