Castiel

Network

I watched the movie Network the other day. It's reputedly somewhat of an inspiration for Studio 60, and it was really excellent - a biting satire. Despite being 30 years old, it was also quite prescient about modern day TV culture and the cult of the celebrity.

I thought this quote was especially apt. Collapse )

Oh how true! What Not to Wear tells us how to dress, Jamie Oliver tells us how to eat, Supernanny tells us how to raise our kids. And this was written back in 1976!

What I also loved about this movie is that it gave me a little glimpse into the kind of issues S60 might deal with! Woohoo! (What do you mean, turn off the TV?)
