I’m in the middle of watching The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and I’ve just hit the fourth “Endless Eight” episode. Can I get some sympathy from someone who’s already seen the show?
Don’t what I like better, the story or Ann Beattie’s comments.
Is there anything more nineties looking than this? I had a Super Soaker almost exactly like that.
Some sentences pack warning signs that something’s off and ought to be double-checked. Take this one, for example:
McCartney has called the $25 million mansion on Cartney Street his home for over 25 years.
Is it possible McCartney lives on Cartney Street? In a $25 million home for 25-plus years? Sure, to both questions. But the repetition in those details might mean the writer slipped up.
A few other red flags:
- A person has two first names, for example — like Jay John or Larry David.
- A story with more than one male source follows a quote with “he said” when it’s not clear which source spoke.
- City names can belong to more than one state. For example, an article says LeBron James plays in Cleveland, OH, and lives in Miami, FL — there’s a Miami in Ohio too, though.
- An article about the benefits of vegetables includes a section about light desserts.
- The bank robbery supposedly happened in Sandy Springs, but all the eye-witnesses say they live in Midtown.
- A feature on summer hip hop concerts only name-drops rock ‘n’ roll stars.
Any detail that makes you think twice, even for a second, might be worth double-checking.
Thanks to ACES for the tip!
It’s that time of the year again, in which I’m looking for new people to follow! Reblog and I might just stalk your
Fan vs. Fan: The Flash (episode 1 review)
This pretty much encapsulates what I thought about the show (except for the fact that I don’t watch Arrow).
Raise your hand if you liked The Flash pilot better than Gotham.
