I’m Jackson Upperco, a 23-year-old Boston University graduate and aspiring sitcom writer, historian, and critic — now bravely facing life (and traffic) in L.A. I set up this blog in June 2013 to share my thoughts with anyone and everyone who cared to know ’em. As you’ll notice, each day of the week is themed: Musical Theatre Monday (now on the THIRD Monday of each month), Sitcom Tuesday (weekly), Wildcard Wednesday (weekly) — and until 2016 when they were indefinitely retired, Xena Thursday, and Film Friday.
I love almost everything I discuss here, but I’m not a “normal” consumer. My entire life, thus far, has been built around the joyous study of particular entertainments, and I feel humbly qualified to critique, comment, and analyze based both on my feverish absorption of said material and my unending quest for passion-furthering knowledge. But I’m tough. You see, this is more than a love; it’s my life, and I take it seriously. I believe the study of these entertaining works of art is an important cultural contribution, and I’m happy to be sharing my unique point-of-view here.
Discussion is encouraged — please feel free to join the conversation here. The only rule is mutual respect. Also, take the time to browse past posts and use the search bar, along with the extensive “tags” I use on every entry, to help locate specific topics. And if you like what you see, I’d be delighted if you’d subscribe. (It’s free. Just put in your email, confirm, and you’re set!)
