The Big Story

Chase Carey COO NewsCorp - “If we can’t have our rights properly protected through legal and governmental solutions, we will pursue business solutions. One solution would be to take the network and make it a subscription service. We’re not going to sit idly by and let people steal our content.”

Yet Another Big Story

"LucasArts was shut down on Wednesday. Also, another round of layoffs was announced throughout ILM and LECL (LECL is the division that houses IS/IT/Training, and other support services) later that morning. The layoffs affected about 300 in technology and 'Overhead' Lucas Online (starwars.com) was also heavily impacted. It was enough to trigger the provisions of the Federal WARN Act, that means at least 30% of the workforce was let go" - Source wishes to remain anon.

Quick comment on Doctor Who, the first two episodes have been great but I can't help thinking that the monster of the week stories are cut way too short, yes we have the underlying stories that will run the length of the season. Yes, I understand the monster of the week needs to start and end on the same episode, hence monster of the week. But I may have mentioned I have been a fan of the Doctor for quite some time. Do you think that stories are lost by having them start and finish in an hour? Is it simply a matter of attracting a new generation of viewers, or keeping the current generation of viewers interested, that stories are told this way. Prior to the 2005 reboot a story could last from as little as 2 shows to 6 shows. Both of the opening episodes had stories that could have been so much better told over 2 or even 3 weeks.

Brian brutally criticizes Walking Dead for the meandering pacing. This is what he praises about Game of Thrones.

I think maybe the difference is that GOT is heading in a definite direction we pretty much all know Daenerys will one day claim the iron throne (no spoilers just speculation) and want to see that happen and are enjoying the ride.

I don't see a satisfying out for the Walking Dead. I haven't read the comics, but they either eventually die in a plague infected world or they find a cure. One ending is depressing the other is about as satisfying as The War of the Worlds.

Thoughts?
