Note from Jenni...
I hope you're enjoying JABB's
TBAA Episode Guide!
If you're a member of JABB and would like to review an episode
(or several!), just drop me an
email and I'll be
happy to add it!
As far as my own
contributions, I wanted to explain a little about the format I
decided to go with. People are welcome to adopt it,
adapt it, or do something else entirely.
When I started this I
knew I wanted to address the following aspects of each
What I love about this
What I didn't love
about this episode
Parts that made me
Scenes Hallmark cut
(generally only on S5 and beyond)
Further on down the road...
On this page I'd like to explain a lil bit about what I mean
by each of these section titles.
What I love about this episode:
This section is for plot elements, quotes, images, etc. that
I'm very fond of in each episode. Occasionally I might
also include something that, while it may not be particularly
impressive, somehow made JABB a lot easier or a lot more fun.
What I didn't love about this episode: I love
TBAA and consider it my all-time favorite TV show.
However, that doesn't mean I love every little bit of
it. Sometimes the writing doesn't work for me. Or
I just don't agree with how something's portrayed.
Things like that. I might also mention an aspect of the
episode that really unnerves or upsets me here. That
doesn't necessarily mean it's something I wish they'd
changed. It might just be something that's difficult for
me to watch.
Lingering questions: Anything
that goes unsaid in the episode that makes me curious.
It could be really intriguing to me (i.e. why Tess is
identical to Erasmus' aunt) or just something random that made
me curious. I might also note a line or scene that made
me ponder something but that actually has little to do with
Parts that made me feel swoony:
Sometimes this is the most misleading section. It should
actually be "Parts that made me feel swoony, think a lot about
Andrew, worry over Andrew, or appreciate Andrew in a
completely uncrush-like way" but that's way too long.
Typically here's where I mention all that I find wondrous
about Andrew (or Adam). In episodes without AODs, I
might use this space to comment on an attractive assignment or
discuss an aspect of the episode that made me think about
Andrew or the other AODs.
Random thoughts: Where
everything that doesn't fit into the above sections or my
occasional intro sections goes! And sometimes the stuff
there is *really* random.
Scenes Hallmark cut: Starting with the Season 5 episodes, I
tried to compare the Hallmark airings with the original CBS
airings. I then listed scenes I thought Hallmark
cut. They may not be 100% accurate since sometimes weeks
passed between my viewing of the Hallmark version and my
follow-up viewing of the CBS version.
Further on down the road...: I
added this section after the Season 5 DVDs *finally* came
out. As I rewatched episodes, I made observations that I
hadn't during my initial Episode Guide viewing. So those
thoughts were put in this section.
