Formatting

I've written some TV reviews on this blog, and I kind of want to quit for the simple reason that the titles of those posts contain too much information.  Take my reviews of Star Trek:  If I want an accurate post title, I have to write:

TV Recap: Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season 1, Episode 5, "The Last Outpost."  

God damn that's a lot of words.  I could shorten the format to:

TV Recap: Star Trek: TNG, S1E05, "The Last Outpost.

But that's still a lot of words, and then I'd be the schmuck who uses abbreviations when writing about Star Trek.  In any case, the titles are going to be long regardless of what show I'm recapping.  For example:

TV Recap: The Great Indoors, S1E4, "You Don't Know Jack."  

For this dumb reason alone I'll probably steer more towards TV and book recaps as time goes on.
