Meet the New Speechless Reviewer

Howdy, folks! Gena here.

I first stumbled across the TVRG blog in the 2015-16 season while looking up The Last Man on Earth recaps and reviews, but it was HV's reviews for Speechless that brought me back during the 2016-17 season, and then later that summer I started commenting (especially in the Off Topic posts).

For my first blog post, I must say I'm thrilled that I've been given an opportunity to take over for Hunter as Speechless reviewer, and I hope I will able to fulfill this duty through Season 3 (2018-19). It is currently my favorite show -- I've seen each episode at least twice (and in some cases, thanks to reruns, three or four times).

Some of my other favorite comedy shows (and dramedies) over the years:

1) Saturday Night Live and The Simpsons -- I've been watching both since at least the early '90s.

2) Past -- include The Wonder Years, Perfect Strangers, Get a Life!, Brooklyn Bridge, Doogie Howser MDSeinfeldFrasier, Friends, The Critic, NewsradioEverybody Loves Raymond, King of the Hill, Will & Grace (original run), The King of Queens, Futurama (original FOX run), Freaks & Geeks, Malcolm in the Middle, EdUndeclaredScrubs, Arrested Development (original FOX run), How I Met Your MotherMy Name is Earl, 30 Rock, The Middle, Raising Hope, Suburgatory, New Girl, The Mindy Project (original FOX run), Community, Portlandia, LMOE, GalavantGreat News and Trial & Error. (Also Clone High -- I missed its MTV run, but I have it on DVD.)

3). Current -- Fresh Off the Boat, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Drunk History, The Good Place, Documentary Now!, Brockmire and Young Sheldon (also Another Period and Detroiters, if they haven't been cancelled yet); ones I haven't seen from the beginning but have been watching regularly for the past couple seasons or so include South Park, The Big Bang Theory and The Goldbergs. (As for dramas, I've been a loyal viewer of Grey's Anatomy from its start, I got into Doctor Who several years ago, and I love This Is Us; plus, I watched E.R. for its entire run, adored Once & Again and own My So-Called Life on DVD.)

I should probably add that I'm kind of a music nerd. I grew up in the '80s and '90s with oldies and classic-rock alongside Top 40 pop and country, but exposure to college-rock and free-form radio in my late teens-early '20s would turn me on to punk, New Wave, power-pop, alternative country / folk / Americana and more; and I've continued to seek out good stuff both past and present.

Thanks for the invite, and I look forward to contributing to TVRG! :)
