Top Chef! Also, seeking new writers!

First, the Top Chef Finale's recap is up at Hey, Don't Judge Me. Let's keep discussion there to spare people of spoilers, okay?

Second, as we have some shows winding down, I'm looking to add new ones to the stable of shows at HDJM, and am looking for new writers.

Here's what to do, if you're interested:

  1. Email me at heydontjudgeme[at]gmail.com, subject header: NEW WRITER:[show you want to recap]

  2. send me a sample of a recap for the show (if it's a show that hasn't aired yet, pick another show with a similar vein, ie: mystery for mystery, sci fi for sci fi, etc.) It only needs to be a few paragraphs long, like a scene or two, just enough to give me an idea of your writing style

  3. WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR: conversational writing. Imagine telling a long-lost friend about the most amazing thing they're not watching.

  4. Also: understand that I EXPECT a 24-hour or less turn around time. Consistently being late means getting the boot. Sorry, but we're moving into pro-territory here, and I expect my writers to piss excellence. :D


And if it's a returning show, I'd love for the new writer to be willing to go back and sum up previous seasons, if possible.

I'M GOING TO MOVE TO AMERICA AND BECOME A RECAPPER!

On another note I'm so PROUD of you and your stable (haha) of writers as it's gone from humble begginings to something industry people are taking note of; that's nothing to sniff at, especially if it's a week old diaper.

YOU SHOULD. Dammit, I wish you would join us. SURELY there is a show that we don't get here before you. SURELY.

And this is a TWO WEEK OLD DIAPER, thank you. Filled with the finest curries.

SURELY YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS. Sorry, I had an 80's movie moment. I have season two of Sherlock, have you guys had that yet? I assume so. God, what's it like living in a country at the forefront of everything? I pah at you. Pah.

The finest curries and the burning pubic hair of the curlest variety!

We have someone on the Sherlock eps. WHAT ABOUT OTHER BBC SHOWS WE DON'T HAVE? (Merlin and Sherlock are the only ones so far.)

If I could think of a show that I'm watching that hasn't screened in America I would be ecstatic because I would pester you mercilessly to join your club and get access to the treehouse of fun, but my life is cruel and horrible and it's not meant to be. SINGLE TEAR TRICKLING DOWN MY CHEEK!

Wait, do you guys get Geordie Shores? Probably. But see, I'm thinking! Which is hard.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
