We’re MERGING with Happy Nice Time People!
Exciting news! The Agony Booth will soon be merging with its partner recap site Happy Nice Time People! The new joint website will continue to be called the Agony Booth, and will continue to be found right here at http://www.agonybooth.com.
All the existing content will remain, and we’ll continue to provide the movie reviews and recaps and everything else you expect from the Agony Booth. But going forward, we’ll be joined by the current Happy Nice Time People writers (including site owner Rick Lewis and contributor Susan Velazquez, who have already published articles here) while also acquiring its extensive archive of TV recaps and articles. Once the merger is complete, the Agony Booth will become your home for both movie and TV recaps/reviews.
Happy Nice Time People was originally founded in 2013 as a spin-off of political blog Wonkette, intended for more pop culture-oriented posts, until it became an independent entity a year later with a new focus on TV recaps and news. Some of their more popular recapped shows include Game of Thrones, Once Upon a Time, The Flash, 19 Kids & Counting (until it was destroyed by sin and corruption), and Supergirl, recapped by the Agony Booth’s very own Dr. Winston O’Boogie.
The merger will happen gradually over the next couple of months, and you likely won’t see any major changes until the fall TV season begins and HNTP episode recaps kick into gear. In the meantime, please welcome the Happy Nice Time People staff to the Agony Booth!
