Should I Recap The Bachelor?

It was suggested to me a few months ago that I recap The Bachelor, and I immediately scoffed at the idea. But then I got to thinking...why just recap shows that I like? Most of my recaps are snarky and sarcastic anyways, so wouldn't it be better if I was doing them for a show I find ridiculous? And one where I don't have the past-season knowledge and experience that I have with Survivor or The Amazing Race?

With the new season premiering tonight, I'm considering it, but I wanted to run it by the regular readers first. What do you think? Should I recap The Bachelor this season?

I'd be interested in your take on the show, especially since you haven't watched previous seasons!

I don't watch the show but if you start recapping it, I may have to give it a try.

This show used to be great....i saw all the seasons till the last few...it just got boring....2 hrs a week was too much....

but listen, reading ur recap on it, will surely get me watching again...i saw the first show yesterday and wasnt impressed...

so why not...give it a shot...u know ur the best recapper, lol...☺...

Is it seriously 2 hours each week? I thought that was just for the premiere...

That could be a pretty big dealbreaker...

I don't think you should, but then again I don't watch the show. I wish you recapped more of the shows I watch though. So maybe if you have a lot of readers who watch it, you should.

Sean said...

That brings up a good question Choirchick22...

What shows SHOULD I recap?

I'm considering Alcatraz and The River in the coming months.

Remember that it's not just Reality TV. My recapping started with Lost.

Well. Some shows I watch other than Survivor are How I Met Your Mother, RuPaul's Drag Race, (HAHA That would be hilarious) and Leverage. Not sure if the last two have much viewership, but a good majority of people like HIMYM. Haven't heard of the shows you're thinking of recapping. Are they new?

Modern Family recaps would be good too, it's the best sitcom on TV imho.

YES!

HoH8 said...

Yes Sean....Bachelor is 2 hrs a week...a definite dealbreaker, lol.....

im gonna be watching The River and Alcatraz(the next Lost) for sure, Jack Bender will be directing the premiere epi of Alcatraz(JJ is getting his full team onto this show)....☺....

The Firm is suppose to be good also, i heard that John Grisham is helping write the epi's for the show....

but listen Sean, next month we will have Survivor and TAR back on so u gonna have ur hands full again, right...☺...

OH MY GOD. YES

Alcatraz and the River both look like shows that could use some extra examination. A recap wouldn't hurt. Alcatraz seems to have started pretty strong, and gotten good ratings (so far), so it might be something that sticks around a while as well.

Are you watching Alcatraz? Have you thought about recapping that?

I'd like to see you do the Jersey Shore. It has become my trainwreck guilty pleasure, though I won't admit it to anyone, and no one I know would EVER think I'd watch it b/c it's *so* bad.
