That quote is from a post by comet tonight. I'm sure you saw it, he put it in two different threads. If you missed it first time around, go back and read it (just once should be fine). It's a good read. But on to my topic. In honor of his assertion (I'm sure it's a complete fact, don't get me wrong) that the Big Brother (reality show) board is supposed to be like a sitcom (not a reality show), and since everyone else on the board seems to want to play this like some sort of reality show (like Big Brother), I thought I would give people (like comet, apparently) who want to do this like a sitcom, a place to do it in. That sentence made perfect grammatical sense, go back and read it again. Back? Awesome. Okay. On to the sitcom. I call it 'Those Darn Users!' I figure we get ratings for a few reasons. 1, the edgy cursing in the title 2, the use of 'users' makes people think it's a comedy about druggies, which is an instant ratings grabber (look at Hardball, a show people only watch because its host is a daily user of the narcotic crack cocain) 3, the exclamation mark used at the end of the title, which elicites a sense of excitement in the viewer (I took a class, I know what I'm talking about) Okay, well, I don't want to go on too much in this first post, so let's go ahead and get this mother on the road! EXT: Quaint New England town home, surrounded by trees and bushes. INT: Living room. The father, EAGLET, and the son, COMET, are standing in the room, talking to each other, both wearing 50s attire. COMET This house is a DRAG ! EAGLET Now now, Comet, don't put a space between the end of your sentences and your puncuation! (laugh track) COMET I know, Dad, I'm just trying to give this house a little more DRAMA. It seems to be a little on the DRY side. EAGLET I know what you mean, son. Speaking of dry, I could really use a drink, after this 10 second conversation with you! (laugh track) --------------------------------------- Take it away, folks!
