How long before you give up on a writer that you once loved? Or a TV series you adored? Or film director? Or actor? Or band you loved? How many dud books, TV eps, movies or songs before you say, “That is it. I’m never spending money on you again?”
Or do you never give up and keep hoping against hope that they’ll regain form?
I’d tell you who this was apropos of, but then I’d have to kill you.
