Now that’s more like it
May 19, 2008
Still not sure, but now I’m not sure as in “WTF is going on?” which is generally how I like my entertainment.
Can you see the pitch in the limo with the Fox exec though?
JS: Got a new show for you.
FF (Fox Fuckhead): Yeah? (chews cigar to other side of the mouth) Does it have any aliens in it? (FF sniggers and ends up coughing juicily for a bit. You know he’s working on half a lung).
JS (calmly): No, no aliens. But it’s got girls. And they have no memory. They kick your ass on a mission and then you wipe their mind and they start over again the next day as someone new.
FF: Sounds like my first wife.
JS: Think Alias but with a science fiction twist. Joe 90 meets Alias.
FF: I’ll think about it. But really what we want is a musical comedy that features animatronic hobbits. Hobbits are big right now. Maybe we can bill it as The Hobbit meets Electra, will that work?
and so on. Although to give them their due, the FF this time round does at least appear to be a bit more stable than the whackjob who greenlighted Firefly then crapped on us all from a high height.
