What are all those computer generated special effects in car commercials? Show people being envious of someone else's new car. That'll sell cars. What is all that creativity in fast food commercials? Simply shove a burger inrepparttar viewers face and then show someone enjoying eating a burger. That's how to sell fast food.

You can use similar criteria to criticize TV shows. What's with those Star Trek shows? I don't understand those convoluted temporal loops, or alien intelligence taking overrepparttar 117306 brains ofrepparttar 117307 crew. That's way too complicated. Just show me man against alien or man's technology against nature.

You can use photos and sound bites from TV in your articles. It's not copyright infringement if you use them for news, critical, or educational purposes. That's called "fair use".

How do you make money from a TV critic site? If you have traffic, you can generate revenue from any kind of general advertising. If your site experiences strong demand from advertising and network executives, you might make it a subscription based site.

One way you might NOT want to make money is when one of those advertising or network executives offers to pay you for your opinion or to use your opinion in their advertising. This would undoubtedly bias your opinion, causing your Web site to lose credibility. Resist that money!

Can you image earning a living by laying on your sofa all day recording your unqualified opinion of what you see on TV? The Couch Potato Critic - good idea, or crazy idea?
