Hello! We are Cathy and Sarah, a mother-daughter pair who like to analyze everything we watch (endlessly), whether it’s movies, TV, or live theater. One night, when Sarah was already asleep, Cathy, who is a night owl, had a meta epiphany that she had to share right away, before she forgot it. So, she wrote a long email for Sarah to find in the morning. We both discovered that we liked having our thoughts written down to refer back to so much that we started emailing each other more and more, even though we live together! This website is our way of sharing our ideas even further. Posts by Cathy are tagged metacrone. Sarah’s are tagged metamaiden. We live in New Mexico, where Sarah is a college writing tutor and Cathy is a retired teacher and homeschooling/unschooling mom. The general slant of the site is toward entertainment, media, women and disabilities (we both have disabilities, it’ll come up eventually). Movie reviews will virtually always be late
(or nonexistent, as it turns out), since we have a hard time getting all three members of our household out of the house at the same time.
We are open to suggestions for which TV shows to write about. We seem to have fallen into the general range of character driven scifi and superhero shows with the occasional musical or romcom thrown in for variety. I (Metacrone) find that if a show doesn’t have an ongoing mystery or complex character interactions, and some prominent female characters, it’s not interesting for me to write about long term, even if I enjoy watching it. That’s why, for example, I don’t write about The Expanse, even though I love it. Plus, I read the books, so I know what’s coming. Sometimes, I’ll write an end of season analysis if I’m excited enough to write something but know the story too well to do weekly recaps.
*Metacrone has given up and gone with the tendency to name every post as if it were an academic paper. I apologize to everyone who doesn’t need the flashback to an English Lit class. I would also like to apologize for my inconsistent tagging abilities. In addition, I appear to be incapable of getting everything in a post right before I hit the “publish” button. You’re not crazy, it really did look different 5 minutes ago. I probably went through and edited the format, added a photo or comment I’d forgotten, or corrected my endless spelling mistakes. Or maybe it was magic.
