💜 On http://www.ladyteruki.com I've been writing (in ꜰʀ) about television from all over the planet, for over a decade and a half ! I believe in being curious about the world through its TV shows.
Reviews, history, fun facts... so far 6700+ publications have been made available for free, ad-free.

But I'm a disabled person living under the poverty line, so I have a Ko-fi where people can support me : https://ko-fi.com/ladyteruki

I know it can be confusing that I toot in English, but write in French.
If it helps clarifying things : the way I see it, English is a great language to socialize with more strangers than French allows me to, hence why I use it on social media.

That said, I've heard from several of my readers that translation tools usually do the trick :) It's not ideal, but writing in two languages would be too much work for my disabled a**, sorry.

Ko-fi posts are in both languages, though 🙂

There are MANY ways to support me :

  • boost my articles when you see them (this thread is also pinned)
  • talk about my publications if you like them (and even if you don't ! constructive criticism is cool) so that others get to hear about what I do
  • support me one time or regularly, on Ko-fi ( https://ko-fi.com/ladyteruki ), as it helps me survive
  • follow me on Ko-fi, which doesn't require you to contribute financially if you can't or don't want to (or not yet)
  • comments ! I like them 💜

🇬🇧 Sometimes it's just really, really, really hard to convince you to watch a show without telling you why it's good. Because why it's good comes from the emotional impact of not being prepared for what it's doing ! So let me take up the challenge, and see what I can do for the first episode of British series #BigMood.
