Remember in school if you got an A on the first project of the year you could turn in complete crap and still get As the rest of the year? I believe this holds true to other things in life such as film companies/television networks/showrunners etc……just an observation.
I have never been a huge fan of what’s called the “premise pilot”. That is the entire pilot or first episode of a show is spent setting up the story. I understand some shows need a little help getting there. Usually sitcoms have a premise pilot, but I think the strongest shows do not get hung up on these.
Last week Amy Sherman-Palladino’s show, (she is famous for Gilmore Girls), premiered on ABC Family. I have to say that even though it was a premise pilot I did enjoy it.
I am not sure the motivation for the main character, played by Sutton Foster, to hook up with a man she doesn’t know and leave her life was strong enough, but I went with it. Over all it’s pretty fun.
I wanted to write a more in depth review, but I am completely knackered, so it’s short and sweet.
That Which Does Not Kill Me, Makes Me Funnier
So the tragic life of Stephanie? Nah, just life and you know it’s making my comedy better. Seriously.
My father passed away last week, so please excuse my absence. I am okay, well I am not, it SUCKS and I am so sad, but I am okay. You know I am functioning and writing a lot. Which is good.
I have so many blogs to get out…I will be back soon I promise. In the meantime. I am going to be TWEETING an ENTIRE NOVEL.
