What is TV Lair?

TV Lair is a blog that reviews TV shows. I want to be a television writer one day and this is my exploration of what makes a television series good. This means having to watch a lot of television and seeing both good and bad shows. I try to determine how a pilot sets up a show and try to see if there's any promise. I'm not a professional critic. There's ads on the site, but that's to cover the cost of the domain name. I currently have no plans to actually make a profit from this blog. It is merely meant as a way to put my thoughts into writing.

TV Lair will post reviews for a show approximately within 48 hours since it aired in the United States. Saturday and Sunday are counted 24 hours for the purpose of this site (so the weekend is considered one day).

You have a lot of typos in your reviews, why is that?

I'm a college student and this blog is merely a hobby. While it's a time-consuming hobby, it's not my number one priority. As much as I would love to be able to spend the time proof-reading my reviews, I simply can't. A lot of typos and mistakes make their way into my reviews. I am trying to improve the quality of the reviews since this blog is a reflection of me. This blog isn't just meant to explore what makes a good television show good but also as a way to generally improve my writing. I like to believe that as you look at my older reviews to the ones I am currently writing that you will find my writing to be getting better.

Why do you keep delaying shows?
There's many reasons. The first is that my priority is school-this means that I have to meet my class's deadlines. I haven't missed a single deadline while attending college and I don't plan on doing it. I also make sure to always spend time on my assignments and to study.  This blog is something I do on my own time and as a hobby. While it's important to me, it is not a priority. 

How do I contact you?

You can e-mail me at curibe@bu.edu, leave comments on the site, or go to the Boxoffice.com forums (I'm the Junior Admin, Water Bottle) to contact me. If you want to advertise on this site, I recommend saving your money. While I won't release how many people read my reviews, the numbers are too low for it to be considered a good investment. The ads on the blog are meant to cover the cost of the domain name.

What Happened to All the Photos?

Some reviews used to have photos attached with the site. After serious deliberation, I have decided to remove these photographs. This is because even though the pictures were under Fair Use:

"the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.
In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include—the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
the nature of the copyrighted work; the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.
Source: 17 USC Section 107."
 (Bolded for emphasis)

there were some good reasons to take them down. There are two primary reasons on why they were removed:
  • Blogger or the copyright holder might decide that the pictures are not "fair use" and ask for them to be removed. Enough requests and the blog would be deleted. I decided not to risk the argument and simply remove them.
  • While I have no plans to leave Blogger, that might happen one day. If this is the case, then I'll have to deal with how much photos I can store on my website and similar.
Photos might be coming for future reviews but that's only if there's a way for me to obtain rights for pictures so that I don't have to worry about having any legal disagreements over what is "fair use".
