On the Lot

Is anybody watching this? I think it's a cool concept for a show, but it's just not that good.

Garry Marshall is great, Carrie Fisher is breaking my childhood dreams down like a bulldozer, and the convenient other guest judges are lame (Michael Bay is critiquing anything? Really? Go back to making everything look blue and yellow and making mediocre movies there champ.)

I'll see Transformers, too, but I still think Michael Bay has very little talent as a director.

I've been watching it. I enjoy it, but I don't know anybody's names or have anybody in particular that I'm rooting for. Not yet, at least.

I've been watching it too but ya, I can't seem to identify with anyone yet. I remember the guy that did the bakery film and he's done quite well for the past two episodes. And I remember the Canadian guy because his film last week had the 360, one take, shot. Everyone else I'm struggling.

I'm confused on how the format goes. They show 5 contestant's films per week, with one winner I presume, then we have 5 next week and 5 the week after. That leaves 3 remaining. Is that how it goes?

I can't figure out the format either. The show is pretty confusing as to what they're doing each week. Was there even a theme to the films?

Michael Bay -- what a joke. Get over yourself, dude.

And that hostess... even tho she is cute, she is highly annoying. Nails on a chalkboard.

So the films were decent last night. I liked "Beeline" the best, aka "Slut Mom".

So we now know that they are voting off 1 person from a group of 5 each week. A-HA.

The guest judge was decent too. And I'm really liking the advice that Gary Marshall is giving.

I like "slut mom" too. And the hamburger one. I really didn't care for the last one at all, I thought it was too music videoish. Didn't care for the one from the guy thats totally full of himself. Seemed like a movie trailer not a short film.

I agree.

The first one was cute, the beginning made me nearly get tears in my eyes because I felt sorry for the janitor (yes, I'm an over-sensitive sap, I know). I guess I don't know if I really liked that he turned mean to get revenge, but I guess SOMETHING had to happen.

I think Beeline was the best, it was pretty funny. Her kid sure is cute! The cupid one was okay, I thought the ending was just sort of "eh".

I am 'kinda' watching this I guess. I didnt see the big hype about the beeline movie It seemed like it was more like a commercial than a movie. I actually really liked the ego guy's movie the best.

They all seem a bit like commercials, I think... or trailers. Its hard to have a complete story in 3 minutes without it turning into that, I think. Coming up with the ideas is the hardest part.

Now that we know they are kicking off one person per week from each group, but have they ever even explained the format to viewers? They could have lost alot of viewers to confusion.

The guy that does the movie trailers really needs to listen to the advice he's had for 2 weeks now and do an actual story. It will be interesting to see what he can come up with next time, a story or he's gone I think. Can't wait to see what Zack(Cdn guy) will do next week.

Who got kicked off last night...I fell asleep?

The guy from Montana ... I forgot what his film was about, but he did the golf one earlier.

I think the producers are making this show up as they go along. Now that's the way to make a TV series!

The arrogant guy got booted! I was hoping he'd go, but surprised nonetheless.

The "Sunshine Girl" movie was very well done, I think that guy is going to win, deservedly. He's got talent.

I felt sorry for that one chick who did the horror-tree movie. It was pretty bad, but I understand how hard it is to come up with something good! Bet she goes.
