But Chris! All the Television Without Pity folks are doing amazing work on Previously.TV, including still hosting the Extra Hot Great podcast.

I hope that this feels like good news.

I’m not Chris, but that is good news. :)

Referencing TWoP? You’re my kind of people, John. Did you post on the forums, or just read the recaps? And yeah, Previously.tv Is a pretty good substitute to get your post out.

I’m hoping that TAR26 is a success, mainly because I want more TAR. It might kill Phil Keoghan to pump up would-be relationships, but the alternative is no show.

Mostly read, and lurked a bit on the forums. I loved Miss Alli’s recaps, though. Not to diss M Giant, because he did a great job, but I’d buy a book of Miss Alli’s recaps.

And I did see an application online for TAR 27, although that may not mean anything. I certainly hope it keeps going; it’s one of our favorite competition shows out there. (We’re also ludicrously in love with ‘Cutthroat Kitchen’.)

Absolutely.

God, I miss her recaps.

My apologies, John! My eyes glazed right past.

Miss Alli doesn’t do recaps in the traditional sense anymore since she runs the Monkey See blog and Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast at NPR, but read her phenomenal rundown of The Boy Next Door trailer:

And here’s a little retrospective of her time writing TAR recaps as Miss Alli on TWoP:

TWoP had at the time probably the best TV forum out there (hell, I met some of my best online friends in the Heroes Meet Market), and their recaps were some of the best on the internet.

I’ve since migrated to Previously.TV, though. Like Ilan said, the site was built by TWoP’s founders, so it has the original spirit of the old site, without being anchored to its formatting. It also has Extra Hot Great, which is currently my favourite podcast. They also have a fairly laid-back and pretty much troll-free forum, with forums for pretty much every show you can think of. (Full disclosure, though; after I found that forum last Spring, I was so active in it that I was asked to join the moderating team. Don’t let my bias get in the way, though. It’s a great site.)

Great recap, BTW. Miss Ali would be proud.

At the end of tonight’s show, Phil said the show would not return until April. Why? That’s like a month away!

At the end of tonight’s show, 3/13/15. Phil said the show would not be returning until April. Why so long?
