    Sturgeon’s Law does apply to TV. Except the ratio is more extreme.

    “I repeat Sturgeon’s Revelation, which was wrung out of me after twenty years of wearying defense of science fiction against attacks of people who used the worst examples of the field for ammunition, and whose conclusion was that ninety percent of sf is crud.

    “The Revelation: Ninety percent of everything is crud.

    “Corollary 1: The existence of immense quantities of trash in science fiction is admitted and it is regrettable; but it is no more unnatural than the existence of trash anywhere.

    “Corollary 2: The best science fiction is as good as the best fiction in any field.”

    —Theodore Sturgeon, in the March 1958 issue of Venture Science Fiction

    There’re always books, literature, and such. It might even grow an attention span!

    Reality show. They’re all scripted anyway.

    Don’t bother. I read the book. It’s terrible.

    How about getting a hobby?

    Television is such a waste of precious time.

    I want to see what the agreement is. There has to be some precedence about AI as it relates to intellectual property.

    AI is here to stay and it already has put some people out of work. Propmakers and set designers come to mind. Why built them in the physical world when you can do them a lot better and cheaper with CGI for some scenes? I guess what this means is that propmakers and set designers need to learn how to use these tools in addition to saws and hammers and paint brushes.

    Based on the quality, I thought AI had already been producing all the movies and TV scripts for the last decade.

    This is what happens when you us AI for the wrong things.

    Also, I’d watch this series. Especially if it involves puppets.
