Recaps – How Do People Use Them?

By Bbenzon @bbenzon
Note to self: What about all these recaps? Are they as old as the web? When did the NYTimes start publishing recaps? – I just noticed a Boardwalk Empire recap this AM, which is what got me thinking about this. 
Some digital humanist ought to be harvesting these things, if only for later reference. I wonder how people use recaps? Sure, you can use them to fill in the gaps if you've missed an episode or three. But you can also use a recap to remind you of the ep and fans can use them in conversations.
Is someone looking into this? Is this an opportunity for the citizen scholar squad?
