    I’m really pissed that TWOP is going offline. I’m on that daily reading the comments about the shows I enjoy (or love to hate) and have enjoyed the sarcasm, wit and humor by all of the bloggers. When a show hits it out of the park, we all give due acknowledgement… however if a show’s quality is going downhill, not only have we been vocal about it (and even passionate), but offered suggestions on improvement. I almost feel NBC are shutting it down due in part to pressure from producers who can’t accept the truth about some of the garbage they are airing on TV. Time to search out TWOP 2.0 somewhere on the net.
