Amphitheater Guidelines

In the Amphitheater we sit back and share a good song, offer a movie review, discuss sports, or anything in entertainment and family enjoyment.

If you need to refresh yourself on the decorum, now would be a good time.

    Don't forget the recent zombie craze.

    Although technically that was more movies than TV, but I think you get my point.

      So we'll get a good decade or so out of the genre until they squeeze it dry and make us hate it, and then on to the next thing. Sigh...maybe it'll all circle round eventually and in 20 years from now Westerns will be all the rage again.

        All it takes is one success. Hollyweird is not known for their creativity. I have seen various crime shows like CSI or NCIS etc all use the same basic plot, usually ripped from the news, all while denying that is what they did. "any resemblance to actual people or events is purely coincidental." yeah, right.
