Re: Probably a silly copyright question

Good info here. Basically I took my pilot and turned it into a movie. Most of the same characters and the same concept. In terms of actual material, it's about 90% different than what was in the...

Re: Probably a silly copyright question

I know. It seems like it's overthinking. But I wondered if this screenplay were to sell would there be a legal complication? Reminds me of that story of how John Fogerty was sued for one of his...

Probably a silly copyright question

I'm copywriting a screenplay based on a pilot I had previously registered. Anybody think I should list the pilot as a derivative work even though I'm the author?

Re: 30 Rock?

I've always found this show to be overrated. It's funny, but nothing sticks in my head. After 5 seasons I barely remember a joke. And there's so little depth to any of the characters that it...

Re: Brilliant but so screwed

I agree. But I'm just trying not to get my hopes up. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Breaking Bad and Sons of Anarchy weren't exactly breakout hits right? They grew heavily in their subsequent...

Brilliant but so screwed

I've been watching both Terriers and Rubicon from the start. I know there are other threads on them, but I wanted to start this one, in my usual pessimistic nature, as an early eulogy. The ratings...

Re: the event

I did actually. That was my ritual after every season ended. Next year I'll go through the whole series again. Yes, it's really wonderful. Especially when you know how it ends, you can appreciate...

Re: the event

It's the NBC version of Lost, meaning canned situations and dialogue, subpar acting, and cheap production values. It just looks like "TV." There will never be another Lost because nobody has the...

Re: How the hell are they going to release The Beaver?

Polanski has a lot of sympathizers, particularly in this business. In NY and LA there's clearly more support and respect for him than there is dislike. And those cities really opened that...

Re: How the hell are they going to release The Beaver?

The whole point of The Beaver is to showcase an unlikely person walking around with this beaver. Who's more unlikely -- Jim Carrey or Mel? And it's low budget is no gauge on his career. It's...

Re: Ladis and Gentlemen: Your New Spiderman

I've been telling people that I think this will be an epic failure since it the project was announced. It's way too soon to relaunch a franchise this successful. It's not Batman where you had 4...

Re: "Persons Unknown"

I wouldn't go that far. But I have been watching it. I think it's far better in concept than it is in execution. I have to admit I'm curious who's behind the whole scheme.

Re: Memphis Beat

I didn't know you were from Tenn, Opti. My girlfriend's from Memphis so I've gotten very familiar with it. I didn't find any of the show to ring true to the city. More like the tourism bureau's...

Re: Entourage starts next week!!!

I'll admit it when I feel it...the premiere was actually pretty decent. It had (somewhat) believable Hollywood scenarios. A few more laughs than usual. I was into it.

And I'll be a son of a...

Re: Gondry's Green Hornet

I think Leo has the same acting style with every character. Rogen plays the same character. They're all stoner shlubs.

I'd say Leo's hits have a pretty great range of characters -Gilbert Grape,...

Re: Gondry's Green Hornet

I'm calling it. This is the movie that derails Rogen's career. He's played the same character for far too many movies. I think it's part of the reason Funny People didn't have legs. He's doing it...

Memphis Beat

I don't really watch shows like this, but my new script is set in Memphis so I'm obligated. I found it to be pretty bad. There's a lot of stereotypical characters, especially the DJ Qualls cop. ...

Re: Entourage starts next week!!!

I find that most people think season 2 was the high point. It's certainly when viewership increased and it had the bigger Aquaman storyline. But I found that the individual episodes lacked the bite...

Re: Entourage starts next week!!!

They've said that they will likely wrap up after a short 8th season next year...perhaps just an additional 6 episodes. Then move right into a movie. I think that's just laughable. What is there...

Re: Entourage starts next week!!!

I've read that Doug Ellin said they had no idea what they were doing the first season and were surprised they stayed on the air. That he thinks they're the worst episodes of the series.

Wow.

Re: Entourage starts next week!!!

I can't wait for this thing to wrap up next season. I think the first 8-episode season was top notch. It provided the Hollywood fame and money fantasy while remaining grounded. It was sharp, fast,...

Re: So, did anyone hear back from Rixon at all?

I don't like looking at him any more than you do. But I'm way too lazy to get around to changing it.
