Some good, some not so good

I enjoy House Selcke and used to love House Razor but they were dead set on hating Season 8 before it aired. After the first episode they spent the entire time complaining about everything they hated and then claimed to like the episode. Sorry, don’t buy it. It’s one thing to be critical of something, but I don’t have time for that kind of negativity in my life.

I wonder...

House Selcke: Is Cheryl able to find something good to say about this show? Only a long litany of complaints is not what a call a very balanced opinion. I like the Song of Dan and Josh. Not too long, just a good amount of conversation about a chapter of the book. As for House Razor, they used to be good, but lately, they caught the litany of complaints sickness as well. Too bad.
