Well I could pretend that I’m swirling a single malt scotch while contemplating the inner workings of the media-television. But the reality is I’m probably swigging a beer or wine out of a iced tea glass while working my DVR marathon style. I’m Courtney K. and I’m an avid west coast TV watcher!
A true child of the 80s, I’m proficient in cereal and cartoons. However that doesn’t mean I’m a slacker. Like many of my generation (dear Lord, we’re a generation?? When did THAT happen??) my tastes are diverse and my activities are as well. I don’t so much read books as devour them whole, I watch as many movies as I can, I’m a music collector, a gamer and I’m a bit of a geek. I’m not a huge fan of reality television, with a few exceptions. From the slapstick sitcoms and rom-coms to the gut wrenching dramas, I’m in! I watch them all with as open a mind as I can and try to suss out worthwile content. Mostly I’m a fan of the buy-in; that moment when as the viewer you become invested in the characters and plots of any show you’re watching. When you start to identify with them or identify against them. Those are my favorites.
I’m ridiculously excited to be a part of the MyTakeOnTV.com staff; like jumping-up-and-down-clapping-my-hands-while-laughing excited. Brand new puppy excited. That’s how excited I am!
I solemnly swear to do my very best to make you laugh, maybe make you think, and always try and encourage you to watch a show that could potentially make you do both. As a female in my thirties, I must warn you that I may get a bit swooney from time to time. It’s ok, just skip over those parts and we’ll be good friends, I promise.
