Withmore Idol
Hey, if Survivor's still going...?

(Yeah, because I've got time to be thinking about this - two assignments due this week alone - I've maybe thought about starting *one*...)

Was thinking the other day, following XeeThot's comment, about what to put on TV. Allowing that I don't know how TV works in SD (never had a char that's experienced such a thing), I'm not sure whether or not this idea will float.

Basically, there's an awful lot of "talent" shows on tv at the moment (and I know that's not just in Australia, we get American Idol too), and that got me to thinking.
Rather than making up one half-hour show, would it be possible to make up, say, six five-minute interludes?

Each of these interludes is made up of someone performing an act - singing, playing instrument, dancing, doing magic tricks, whatever - and then being 'judged'.

Beauty of this, as I can see it - it'd utilise the 'random' feature of the script language pretty heavily.

Because:
Each skit is random. Each judge response is random.

To add to the show, it's a case of writing another five-minute script (or another judge reaction) and adding it to the pile.

So, y'know, you have something like...
"Mister X gets up on stage and strums his guitar, singing about lost love"
"Simon Cowell the fifth tells him that performance was rubbish"
"Simone has tears in her eyes as she sobs that she's never heard anything so perfect"
"Bob the goat is dancing in the aisles"
"Mister X has been voted off the island."

...and each of those four lines are separate entities, leading to # possible combinations. (Each 'line' may of course be as descriptive (or not) as desired.)

Basically: Performance. Judge #1. Judge #2. Judge #3. End result (after each performance? - not sure how to make it sum totals after a half-hour show...).

A line could maybe be included for audience response, but I think that can be included in the Performance. Also there's potential for "your" reaction, too, if you wanted to go that way.

(Also, unlike the shows we have today, the judges will be in the same order every time, because that's easier to implement.)

&yes, you will end up with things not matching up. The audience will love someone, the three judges will love someone, and they'll still get voted out. If you've ever watched these programs (uh, not that I have), then you'll know that's how it goes.

It could get more complex with "last week" type inclusions, but that'd involve keeping track. My idea is that this randomness would just self-perpetuate, and if you see the same skit twice, it'll (theoretically) have a different outcome.

So. Is this doable? More to the point, is this something Withmore would watch?
I'm not promising I can produce anything until after next week, but if it's not shot down, then I can spend some time thinking about it.

(Oh, this was long. It's the procrastination talking.)

It's doable, it's fantastic. And no matter what we put on TV someone will watch it. ;) 6million people just in the dome.
