No one ever asked me to put my thoughts into words and publish those words online. Yet I did it anyway.
Likewise, no one ever asked me to record my voice so I could deliver my thoughts even more rapid-fire and with a little more flair. But I did that anyway, too.
Then, suddenly, people did start asking me to do those things. My life in the realm of film criticism has been a strange journey of proving myself, and then having people ask me to keep it up. No one ever took a chance on me without me having to run through fire first to show that I could.
Then a funny thing happened. Someone asked me to do something I never even conceived of myself doing. Someone asked me to be on TV.
This is the first step on a strange new leg of my journey. The best part is, you can see the initial terror give way as the pure joy of being asked to share my thoughts on film takes me over. It’s like a microcosm of my whole life in film criticism thus far. I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you continue to tune in as more and more episodes come out. It’s only the beginning, and I’m glad you all are here for it.
