They don't like Patrick Swayze. Can't be trusted.

Of course he can! He almost singlehandedly saved all those kids from the Communists.

We used to go to TWOP now and then out of professional curiosity.

Yeah, sounds like a lot of people in the industry do.

Aaron Sorkin's posts on that site are legendary.

One of my fondest memories is of the Joe Schmoe thread, where the show creator would come on and ask what we thought of the episodes, answer questions and tell us insider info.

Cori, didn't that one Buffy writer, Drew Whathisname post there, or am I thinking of something else?

Eta - Goddard. Drew Goddard.

I don't recall. I think someone from Buffy did, but can't remember exactly who it was.

That sometimes you could glean some valuable insight, but more often than not it was the same types of people spewing the same type of babble.

Spot on!



That's the problem with places where the snark flows heavily - some people come up with some great snark, but then they get a big head and think everything they say is worthy of 500 lol's posted in response.

I hate the word snark, and I also don't want to make TV for people whose focus is snark. That's why shows like The Wire are so astounding to me....no bullshit, no pandering, no lowest common demoninator stuff, just intelligent writing...not witty, intelligent.....with no worry at all about demographics, psychographics, ratings, shares, etc.....they're just telling the story they have to tell, and HBO lets them do it.

That all being said, I can be pretty snarky.

I'm not sure I know of TV that's made for people whose focus is snark.

People will snark on anything.

You watch VH1. So, yes, you're well aware of TV for people that like to snark.

I thought that stuff was made because it's what people want to watch, and people these days will apparently watch anything.

I guess I didn't understand your statement, then - I thought you were talking about TV made SOLELY for snark.

The VH1 stuff, I'd say that was made solely for ratings.
