Tell Me About “Liz Tells Frank”!
Liz Tells Frank is a blog! It lives here and also on:
- Facebook (where Liz
terrorizes friends into joining her for viewing sessionspolls fans on what Frank should be told about next)
- Twitter (where Liz chatters about the next installment whilst watching/reading it)
- Tumblr (where Liz posts interesting links and commentary relating to past, present and future installments)
But seriously, I mean, what’s the story here?
Liz and Frank, two writers living in Los Angeles, have been friends for many, many years. But the Liz Tells Frank fracas didn’t get started until 2005, when a little show called Bones was just beginning its first season: Liz and Frank watched the pilot together, and while they both found the show amusing, Frank wasn’t sure he wanted to continue watching it. “Liz, do you think you could just TELL me what happens every week?” he said.
And so Liz started writing lengthy letters to Frank about what happened on each week’s episode of Bones. Because Bones did not lend itself to being taken seriously, Liz’s retellings were often snarky and full of omissions whenever Liz didn’t actually care what was happening on screen. This quickly became the Liz Tells Frank house style.
Liz lost interest in Bones halfway through season 1, but it turns out that there are a LOT of other things Frank doesn’t know about. So now, here we are.
So far, all of the planned Liz Tells Frank topics are officially things that Frank hasn’t seen or read and does actually want to know about. He also tells Liz about stuff from time to time, and their friend Jeff will stop by every once in a while to tell Liz about Top Model. But that is no reason for you, humble reader, to not suggest something for Frank to learn about. So please do email or Twitter!
