I was thinking the other day, that the people and events of OT would make a great sitcom! With such a rich selection of characters, and a wide array of OT-themed jokes, I think we'd be at the top of the ratings chart!
Weird Guy enters room, PictureFrame is in the kitchen, and Daniel is building a house of cards. Picture: "So Weird, how was boot camp today?" Weird: "It was awful. Major Rodriguez made me do 200 push-ups. I can't feel my arms now." Picture: "Why did he make you do that?" Weird: "Because I bet him that I could do 200 push-ups!" Fake-Audience Laughter Daniel: "In that case, I'm glad that Major didn't cut you any slack."
Weird: "Oh please. Major is twice as reasonable as you'll ever be." Weird knocks down Daniel's house of cards
Daniel begins to curse in Dutch, and a fight scene begins
After 30 seconds of action, a kitteh comes flying through the window and sprays blood over everyone
EviL investigates the mess he made, says a witty comment, and runs out of the room
Theme Song begins to play
It needs some work, and new charaters will certainly be introduced. But overall, what do you think? Any ideas for future episodes?
First you need to secure copyright on the original text, then join the SAG for union representation. Follow that with a representation by a talent agent and corporate attorney. Now, we could start shopping around for a development deal and pilot version. If Nielsen ratings are favorable, then you can hire some ghost writers to keep the story line going on and watch your sitcom on cable TV.
Also, make sure everyone has lots of little quirks. Just look at the stupid little quirks everyone had in the show Seinfeld but that show was hilarious! So are all us regulars the main peoples? or are there only 3 or 4 main people and the rest of us just make little cameos?
