Jerry Bruckheimer is naked.

The problem I have with TV these days is that production values are just slick enough to mask the fact there isn’t really any drama or story going on. Most are based on formulas so carefully constructed, and perfected over several decades, they create a sort of entertainment quicksand which is at once impossible to escape from and entirely devoid of substance. The once solid ground of primetime drama has been slowly eroded by the rain of money that’s been showered on the producers of the new pre-fab, fast-food style programming.

This is all rather obvious and unimportant.

    no mention of the fractal show?

    after you went to bed the KCTS guy was like, “if you make a pledge now, you can tell your coworkers tomorrow you gave money to a station that combines fractal geometry and pink floyd! where else can you find fractal geography and pink floyd together?!”

  4. aporia says:

    i’m suspicious about that myself… but i just love how square all the KCTS guys are.

    I was mostly inspired by that terrible episode of House.

  6. aporia says:

    oh right. house. i forgot all about that.

  7. mrdapper says:

    Also the entire two seasons of Wacky Housewives. And Grey’s Mediocrity.

    I’m not the biggest Pink Floyd fan, but I don’t think they ever made music that boring.

    They should have let the sketchy guy on the phone talk.

    grey’s anatomy is a good show. 😛

    I never really liked ER, but ER never left me with that feeling of having eaten cupcakes for dinner.

    I’m going to stop rantiung about TV now. I’m just making myself ridiculous.
