OK. So then, "Perry Mason" was definitely a procedural, but "Gilligan's Island", due to its unpredictable plot twists and unstructured free form improvisation was not??

Maybe the word "procedural"...

I'll be interested to see how long those babies stay babies. My hunch is that they'll be heading off to kindergarten by the end of episode three.

So what's the protocol regarding "spoilers"? Does everyone who might be interested in this show by now know the premise that was set up in the first episode? The second episode airs Tuesday.

There were so many outlandish aspects of the show that I could not take offense. The characters just did not seem real enough for me to care. Everything was so over the top. And nothing was funny.

Good episode. No explosions and no weapons. That is definitely nice.
Had to chuckle a bit about the characters' angst upon turning 36 years old.

Oscar, Grammy, and Tony telecasts have some production numbers. Singing and dancing, maybe a scene from a Broadway play or a very brief clip from a movie.

That's not the point, of course. A person can be offended on behalf of others. It's called empathy. And, besides, in order for satire to be effective, the writers have to have at least a basic...

Saw a preview of that show a few months ago. It was absolutely dreadful. I got the impression that even most atheists would be appalled at how condescendingly the show treats religion.

L.A. just isn't going to embrace the Rams until they replace that shade of dull gold with a nice, bright yellow reminiscent of the 1970's "Have a Nice Day" smiley face.

Harrumph. The word "showrunner" has always seemed a bit cheesy to me. It turns out that it came into vogue in the late 1980's and early 1990's.

Is it a good idea to allow one writer to have so...

As for civil disobedience, my understanding of that is...
