Why not?


It was, of course, inevitable.  With cable and satellite television becoming increasingly larger, yet bringing no appreciable improvement in quality, someone was bound to break into this market with fresh ideas and what watchable programming.  So, instead of waiting for it to happen, we propose the world’s first pick-and-choose cable system.  But unlike the major cable and satellite networks, this cable system offers the subscriber the chance to pick his or her channels of choice without having to buy into an entire package of programming.  Furthermore, this cable system boasts an all-new selection of channels.  It seems to be an idea whose time has come.

The 78% Rule:  The de facto rule of thumb for movie production in America has become official, as the Motion Picture Association has declared that 78% of all new motion pictures created in America must by law be either sequels or remakes of older films.  The remaining 22% of films must star Jude Law.  Production companies incorporating Jude Law into sequels or remakes will receive $10,000,000 for their efforts.
