Well, we are in the fourth season of Merlin. For many of us there have been ups and downs, interesting episodes and great scenes as well as not so good episodes and cringe worthy scenes but that’s the way with television shows. In fact, it’s usually what the producers, writers and studios want with a show…something for everyone; the wider the audience the better.
But producers, writers and studios can’t always predict what the audience wants, what they would enjoy and what they would miss. It’s hard because there are sometimes millions of us and only a few of them. That’s why it’s always important to let them know that you enjoy the show in a more personal, direct way.
Respectful, specific, carefully written letters, emails and phone calls are the only ones that get attention. People love to hear they are doing well; no one wants to be disrespected, shouted at, cursed at or disparaged. Productive feedback never includes these things. Kind words pointing out what you would like to see (not what you don’t want) is always effective.
