got a 100 million $ you don't mind tossing away? (I think 8/10 movies are still failures).
Hollywood hits the formula hard. People it. (stargate went by the numbers, longest lived, most successful spinoffs, merchandized all to hades, etc)
this is all the golden mean (sterling's twight zone, anyone?) being applied. Nothing new.
movies as a brand? Can you say spiderman? Argue with moiney. Quality over quanity? entertainment is the good guy winning. (ANY star trek episode)
You want content to supersede form and delivery?
har-har-har-har... um... thinking doesn't sell well, but you're welcome to try it.. You drug dealing, child=molesting evolutionist. Everything/ anything is a motherhood issue to (a rabid loon) someone.
think smoking. even determined efforts to stomp it out, or promot 'healthy' living, etc.
Delivery control to be rock-solid? They'd cut their own throats post-haste if they had it. (Look at quality control in ANY monopoly situation. (the wqater+power freaks can now put on their tinfoil hats for a couple minutes)
It's a GREAT way of destroying them, by me. Check the sprio agnew censorship models on (childrens cartoons) sometimes. When enough people left TV, they changed the model.
sad fact. To get around entrenched deadwood, you create a NEW tv station, unburdened with blue-bloods, suits, burn-outs etc.
we ARE that new TV station. Surfing a lynch mob.
being nibbled to death by internal and external !DUCK!s tape(worms)
now go prove it, and remeber that 100 million $ gets a LOT of attention from .. some fairly unscrupulous' players.
