Media Decay is all about us digesting everything in the entertainment universe so you don’t have to. We watch hours of TV & movies, read tons of comics & books, play a lot of video games, listen to more music & attend more concerts than any sane person will ever have the time to. After we consume it all we spit it out at you in the form of reviews and recommendations. So that that huge wide world of entertainment gets decayed down to a smaller list of stuff we think is worth your valuable time.
We take pride in covering as much and as wide an amount of things as we can. We’ll review independent films and unsigned artists right next to blockbusters and bands selling out arenas. Also it’s not always about the newest things out there. We have no problem reviewing something that’s new to us or recommending an older love.
We also strive to make this as interactive as possible. We encourage you to comment on our posts with your thoughts and to get in touch with us and make some recommendations of your own, it could easily end up on the site. Made a movie/book/album and want some exposure? Send it our way and we’ll try to review it. We will review everything honestly and as unfiltered as it gets. If we hate something we’ll let you know. If something affected our experience (personal life, asshole talking next to us, etc), we’ll let you know.
Also while we love free stuff and encourage you to send us whatever cool swag you might have, we will never let it influence a review or recommendation and will not accept money to write a review or recommendation. All ads on the site are hopefully clearly marked as ads, but when we post a link to buy something sometimes it’ll contain a code that’ll let us get some money if you buy through our link (like things from Amazon for example) please do this to help out the site and the poor people running it.
The 3 Episode Rule
We have a policy when it comes to tv shows and instead of describing it in every tv review I’ll do it here. I believe that you cannot judge a show solely on it’s Pilot alone. You need at least 3 episodes to make an informed decision. After all you could love the pilot that took months to make but when they’re producing actual episodes and have to stretch storylines over a season and only have 8 production days things can go to hell pretty fast. Also they could improve. Perhaps some complaints about a first episode are addressed a little later. Basically it’s not judging a book by it’s cover. We’ll try to do that as often as possible when reviewing television. Often just due to our unfortunately fast media cycle we will have to review a pilot to keep up with our peers but if we have anything to add after a few episodes we’ll certainly write more about that show.
