I think about this, frequently, when I'm writing. Or shopping. Or listening to music. Or watching movies or tv.
The "no original ideas" theory is particularly true of television programming. I am totally okay with that, as there were several shows I was very emotionally attached to, that were unfortunately
taken away from me just like that 5 lb peanut butter-filled chocolate egg Grandma gave me for Easter, and so what if I wanted to eat the whole thing before breakfast cancelled. Deep breath. It's okay. They're basically back. Kind of.
Is now "The Bionic Woman".
Is now "How I Met Your Mother".
"Sex & The City":
Is now "Cashmere Mafia"
I've only seen one of the three shows (How I Met Your Mother), but have very high hopes for the other two. Recycling should be widely embraced, in all manners of the word.
