As we wade through the very compelling data coming at us from the surveys on New York Times Critic Watch, a few things have emerged:
1) We need a few more surveys to get to our optimal number. If you haven't done one, it takes 10 minutes and we need your help.
2) Words people are using to describe positive experiences with reviews:
magnetized my attention
not strongly biased
free of cynicism
the reviewer seemed to like the play more than he expected to
Words that describe the not-so-positive ones:
more interested in being a provocateur
seems like showing off with witty criticism
Give us your thoughts on reviews by taking our simple survey. Go to NYTCriticWatch.com, read a review, fill out a quick survey.
