I haven't been to the TWoP forums for quite a while. The last time I was there was for The Amazing Race season 4 which was a long time ago. I stopped going there pretty much because the comments there could be very hurtful. I certainly didn't go there for SPN ( which I heard was wanky most of the time? ) or any of the shows that I like. No point in getting upset and depressed and distressed when you could avoid it.

Anyyway, I was curious about what they were saying about American Idol Top 3 and rather to my surprise, I didn't find the discussion there particularly mean. Or maybe that was because I'm not invested in any of them, and in most cases, I agree with what they were saying.

Not really rooting for anyone in particular ( though at one point I was quite into Jessica when she sang that Whitney's song ), but if I had to choose, I'd choose Joshua. And please, no spoilers, I haven't seen the result show yet!

And also, I was reminded of another reason why I stopped going to TWoP. It was addictice! Before I knew it, I had spent almost the whole morning reading all the comments lol

The Supernatural TWOP forums was where I first joined fandom, before LJ even. In fact, I knew of LJ through TWOP, when they were talking about Plastic!Winchesters. Back then the forums were lovely and everyone was squeeing and happy and loved both brothers equally. And even if some confessed to be Dean girls or Sam girls, neither bashed the other at all.

Can't say the same now, though. Some rabid and outspoken fans made the place SUCH a downer that it wasn't fun anymore. Worse still as the show goes on and quality declined and all they ever do now is nitpick and bitch about everything.


Sorry, carried away pulak.

I went to TwoP just now to see what they're saying on the two finalists of AI and I accidentally read what they said about Sam and Dean. Lol, I had to giggle, what they called them, but I certainly didn't go on reading it.

Ugh, the people there really tear apart the shows that they don't like, but I guess that's TwoP for you, "without pity" being the keywords.

I've been so impressed with the quality of the singers this season on Idol. Seeing any of them go each week has been hard.

I've just about quit reading any forums or comments on AI recaps, though. It seems like no matter who gets voted off, the haters and whiners come out in force, making sweeping generalizations about how Idol is rigged or it's the cougars or the teenyboppers etc etc. It hasn't been *quite* as bad this year as it was during the Adam Lambert/Kris Allen season, but it gets close sometimes. It hasn't ruined watching Idol for me (yet) but it has ruined my wanting to see what "the Internet" is saying. Sometimes a fandom can ruin my enjoyment of a show, sadly, if I try to participate too deeply.

I hope Jessica will sing the right songs. She has a powerful voice but with the wrong song choices ... She really had me sitting up with that Whitney song she sang a few weeks back.

Philip is okay. Too laidback for my taste, but he's alright.

I'm not familiar with TWoP at all. :D I found any forums confusing, actually, so I stay away from them.

Television Without Pity ( I guess it's alright if you go there to read about something that you don't really care about. But if you love something, my advise is don't go read the discussions there, the bashings are somewhat along the lines of that anon comm. You WILL be angry!
