Uh oh! I am starting to get the very serious feeling that we are genuinely living in the Children of Men but for ideas. At this point, if anyone is ever discovered carrying a new idea around in their head, we are going to have to take them to the ocean under cover of night, risking everything to protect them.

  1. Say what you will, but nothing will stop the producers from making this show. They’re on a mission from God.

  2. Wow. Things must be really bad out there, because I was all set to make a joke about a remake of the remake of The Munsters until I got to the end of the article and saw that it’s already happening. Back to the drawing board for everyone, apparently.

  3. I have original ideas, but they are all just thinly veiled excuses to let me hug Adam Scott and Rashida Jones. So I don’t think the count. But still, hollywood, if you’re reading, call me.

  4. I have an idea for a show. I play a TV executive who listen’s to TV pitches all day and when one of my employees pitches a remake it cues Vinnie Chase saying “Oh, I loved that show” and then I say “What? No” and then hit a gong that makes the employee and Vinnie Chase fall into a pool built beneath my office. The employee is fired and has to leave and Vinnie Chase has to return to my office until another employee recommends a remake.

  5. “Ghost ______”

    It’s a TV show or movie about a ______ who dies while doing ______ and becomes a ghost. Then the hijinx begin! He/she is doomed to haunt the ______ where he/she died doing all the _______ and at first they are all like “I am going to teach these kids a lesson” but then it turns out all along that the kids are teaching him/her!

  6. TV Exec #1: “Let’s update Green Acres, except the lady is the one who wants to farm and the husband is the one who wants to stay in NYC!”

    TV Exec #2: Brilliant! What about the pig?

    TV Exec #1: We’ll CGI him in!

    TV Exec #2: Does he talk?

    TV Exec #1: He not only talks, he Jive Talks!

    TV Exec #2: Are we married to the whole farm idea?

    TV Exec #1: Thought you’d say that, so I’m thinking we transplant them to a suburb!

    TV Exec #2: Fantastic! The burbs always play well! So how do we explain the pig?

    TV Exec #1: A gift from their new neighbors, who happen to be a family of wizards and vampires!

    TV Exec #2: So hot right now! Any celebrity cameos?

    TV Exec #1: Ali Larter has signed on to play the town mayor who happens to have a crush on our male lead and is not shy about it, let me tell you!

    TV Exec #2: Goddamn, do I love classic TV!!!!!!!

    • TV Exec #1: How long until we implant an alien character with magical powers that only the husband can see?

      TV Exec #2: Why not throw him in right off the bat. Who do we get to voice? Bobcat Goldthwait? Jack Black?

      TV Exec #1: That’s weird, I just got a text from Dom Deluise’s agent…

      TV Exec #2: WE ARE ALL SET THEN

  7. Have no fear, The Asylum is still making 2 Headed Shark Attack with Carmen Electra and Hulk Hogan’s daughter. (Real!)

  8. Speaking of which – Children of Men would be a good movie to watch this weekend as we all celebrate the process of women going into labor.

  9. Oh sure this gets made but I can’t get a ‘Ms. Swan’ movie off the ground despite years of campaign efforts? Fucking bullshit.
