“Easy reading is damn hard writing.” – Nathaniel Hawthorne

It’s with great honor that I announce that long time contributor, Erik Wilkinson, has been named co-Editor of Those of you who have come to know Erik through his blog posts know not only his passion for television but the eloquence and thoughtfulness he brings to his coverage.  Erik’s posts always provoke interesting and insightful conversations within the GMMR community and spur some of the most spirited debates.  His columns have become a must-read for TV fans, showrunners and other influencers in the TV community.

In addition to his ongoing coverage of shows such as House, Friday Night Lights, and Parenthood, Erik will be sharing his thoughts on new shows, the latest TV news, and a variety of other TV topics. As as co-Editor, Erik will contribute to the day-to-day operations of GMMR, helping to decide which shows we should cover, what TV topics will be of most interest to our readers, what new team members to bring on board.

I am so proud that Erik has accepted this position and I know that GMMR will be even better with him helping to steer the ship.

Please join me in congratulating Erik in his new role.

    Yeah Erik! I am starting S2 of FNL here within the hour (I love my office!) and hope to be caught up soon. I can’t wait to go back and read your posts on it. For now I am skipping since I have recently discovered the joy of being spoiler free.

    I’m excited about the new job, especially the freedom to post my long-awaited reviews of all 102 episodes of NBC’s ALF.


    I genuinely appreciate the kind words shared above. GMMR has been a labor of love for Kath over the past five years, and I hope my contributions help her celebrate the magic of television.
