I understand episode recaps, that's like a personal essay about the episode in most every case. Episode summaries though in almost all cases get an official summary released by the makers of the shows themselves for websites like these to use. Doesn't it feel a little foolish to reject the summaries that makers want you to use in favor of very often poorly worded summaries that might even contain spoilers the makers didn't want you to know before watching?
This is an especially painful problem when you get episodes that aren't out yet but are fully ready to be added to an episode guide. Why would we have a better summary of an episode that's not out yet than the makers of the show?
