I was recently gripped with urge to create a new page: Writers
(I wonder if Jake will be surprised to learn that I was up for half of last night researching and composing it). My one-line description on the very aptly named Fun Stuff
Musings and analysis on some of the EGB writers and their episodes, including a little cross-referencing with RGB, and my five-star list.
Further information in the page's introductory paragraphs is as follows:
Although I'll be thrilled if anyone besides Jake bothers reading this, I must admit, it's a resource created with my own personal use in mind. When watching EGB, I find it interesting to compare episodes with common writers, though these are strangely rare; six writers have two episodes to their name, and one has three, which means the remaining twenty-five episodes were written by one-offs. Because there are so many, I always forget who's written what even before I've finished my watch-through, and now I've got to a stage where I want to have easy access to this information.
Listed below are the writers with more than one EGB episode to their name and/or one or more episodes of RGB, as this too is information I would like to have at my fingertips. For each writer I hash out my opinions on his (every one of them happens to be a man) EGB-writing strengths, weaknesses and inconsistencies (if any) and, where relevant, I consider the influence an RGB-related background seems to have had. What some people (RGB fans, really) may consider to be lacking is information on the quality of these guys' RGB episodes; this is simply because I am not in a position to judge.
And finally, adding to that here on the forum: I'm sure a very large number of the words will be of interest to nobody except myself, but there may be those of you who are interested to see what I say about RGB. The short answer to that is, not a huge amount, and what I do say may come across about as negative as some of the less hate-filled opinions on EGB that I've read over the years. Of course, I have no disrespect for other people's opinions, and actually I'd be quite interested to know what they are.
Oh, and I'd also like to know if anyone spots that I've made a mistake, because I easily could have.
