TVWriter™ Posts of the Week

Here they are, the TVWriter™ posts TeamTVWriter likes best for the week ending today, Friday, July 6th:

munchman: The Future of FRINGE

munchman: Romance Writing Tips (WTF?)

munchman: Jon Lovett Creates a TV Series

munchman: My Hero

We know what you’re thinking, so let’s stop right there. munchman is hot on this site right now, sure. He has a Big Following, definitely. But even if you disagree that the posts we’ve cited above are the best of the best (although how could you?) that doesn’t mean that these choices are –  oh, what’s the word? Yeah, ” pandering.”

No, no, no, no. They’re marketing, is all.

MARKETING, we say.

EDITED BY LB TO ADD: FTR, I disagree with “TeamTVWriter” today. I think munchman’s mellowed out too much recently. The posts above are all way too soft for me. My choices for Posts of the Week are:

EDITED BY munchman TO ADD: “Mellowed out?! What?! Why you —

munchman: 2013’s Hottest Hit

Remember, boys and girls, you saw it here first:

Did you know there’s an Anime News Network? Now we all do

Why it will be a hit:

Because it’s F-ING SAILOR F-ING MOON!!! Where you been, brothers and sisters? Huh? Jeeze…

(EDITED TO ADD: F-ing censorship by f-ing LB)


Not a Review of The CW’s ARROW

…because, we assume, there’s an embargo on such things for now.

This Is Not a Review: The CW’s Pilot Arrow
by Tim Surette

Alert! This is not a review. I repeat, this is not a review. Throw a “p” on that, please, ’cause this is a preview of the early version of a pilot, a pilot that will almost certainly undergo some form of change before it airs in its final form. Consider this a first impression of a work-in-progress.

Obligatory snarky comment:

Our first impression is that either SpoilerTV.Com or Tim Surette is an age-spotted (sorry, LB) coward. Or both. Yeah, let’s just say both.

Our second impression, though, is that smells like a big CW hit. No, not because of Stephen Amell’s manly forearms, we’re talking something real here: Sharp pointy things (like arrows, wake up!) are, you know, US.

munchman: My Hero

With the right facial hair, no one can see you dribble

What? You don’t recognize Bruce Helford, creator-writer-producer of ANGER MANAGEMENT? I’d know him anywhere because – and this is a big reason for loving on him – look at that, uh, look. The man’s got style written all over his, uh, chin.

And if that’s not enough, look at this interview he gives at Collider.Com. The man’s a mere creator-writer-producer, for crying out loud, but he’s got balls big enough to speak, in public, about Charlie Sheen. And we know what happened the last time a creator-writer-producer tried that. Oh, wait…

Read the Bruce Helford interview ‘cuz it’s cool


And the Dullest New Series for 2012 is…

Never fearing to go where both angels and wiseguys wise men fear to tread, here’s our pick of the series most likely to be dumped earliest when the Fall, 2012 TV season begins:

Yes! It’s NBC’s GUYS WITH KIDS because:

  1. It’s NBC
  2. It’s guys with kids
  3. It exists only to satisfy that colossal talent Jimmy Fallon, who seems to own the damn thing
  4. Look at the picture

We rest our case.
