Saturday Pre-Surgery WUB: Just Do It
Imagine if you will....
WRITER'S ROOM 2012 :
TPTB: Burton's leaving.. sell it, he's dead.
Writers: No recast?
TPTB: Come on, it's BURTON we're talking about...no recast. Sell his death. HARD.
Writer: Okey, dokey
WRITER'S ROOM 2014:
TPTB: We recast Burton.
TPTB: Yep. So....deal with it.
Writers: Um.. well...
TPTB: You can bring anyone back to life..,you've done it 56 times already.
Writers: Yeah, but usually they are the same face.
TPTB: Some have had different faces. Just do it. SELL MILLER AS JASON. HARD!!!
Writers: Okaaaay.... we have to take some liberty with memories and timelines and
TPTB: You think we care? Look at Franco, people buy anything. DO IT!
WRITER'S ROOM: 2017:
TPTB: Hello, twerps!
Writers: (all throw their pencils) what NOW?
TPTB: We got BURTON BACK!
Writers: Of course you did. So, Miller's out.
TPTB: Oh, you fools. Of course not, we're keeping him too.
Writers: So, Burton is a whole different character--like, um..Claudia was?
TPTB: No, that would be stupid. He's coming back as...Jason.
Writers: But you're keeping Miller
Writers: : But we sold Miller hard as Jason
TPTB: You think we care? Just do it.
Writers: You can't just do it...
TPTB: Oh, other soaps have done it, don't even pull that one on us. We know.
Writers: Damn it. Well, then, Miller has to be a fake Jason that doesn't know he's Jason, right? Then Jason comes back and people find out he's the real Jason and...
TPTB: Nah, that's been done before...we want something twisty.
TPTB: Yeah, make it real twisty. But stick to history and don't make ANY mistakes. Our fans know every detail that's happened. So, don't blow this. Just you know, do what you do. We're watching.
Writers: Oh hell.
TPTB: Have a nice day--oh, by the way-- Tamara Braun is back too.
Writers: Hey --
TPTB: Don't worry, you won't have to work as hard on that story! Have a great week!
Writers: We're fucked. This is worse than Kidney-Gate. Get some Starbucks. Now!
