Here's another review. This one walks the line between my blog and my livejournal. On the one hand it's a movie review which falls clearly under my industry blog, while on the other it's a very personal story that related directly to my own life so it's a journal entry. It's going up here, but check out the livejournal to read an awesome entry about The Offspring.
“Each winter the major television networks commission hundreds of specs for television pilots. Each spring a small fraction of those scripts are produced. Of those produced pilots approximately one quarter are 'picked up' and put on the fall schedule. The rest never see the light of day. (The TV Set) is the story of one pilot.”
The prologue pretty much sums it all up. This is a movie about how the TV system works and it was written and directed by a terribly, terribly bitter man.
