I Am A Programming Genius!
Not computers: television. As I was looking at the listings of shows in the daily noisepaper, I finally realized that what the new shows lack is synergy. The combinig of two distinct ideas into a new whole. What's the first element? One I've already complained about: the new psychic shows - "Ghost Whisperer," "Medium" and, to a lesser extent, "Supernatural" on CBS, NBC and the WB respectively. What's the second element? Crime shows of course, specifically the "Law & Order" franchise.
My new show would be "Law & Order: SVU." It's been done you say? Let me spell it out: "Law & Order: Spectral Victims Unit." (guinessguy)Brilliant!(/guinessguy)
