Doug Petrie Pays The Rent

Reunion - A former Buffy writer helps stink up the airwaves with an episode about a teacher who kills a student in order to steal her unpublished book. Couldn't he have waited until it was published and sue her for a chunk of the profits, claiming she ripped off his idea, like normal people do?

Shoot first; don't even bother with the questions

Murder In The Morgue - A police officer tries to kill Tru and Davis in order to keep from getting framed for a murder he didn't commit. If this show gets any dumber, Shack will have to spell out the recaps phonetically.

Soldier of Misfortune

Closure - Death is an option for a particularly dumb GI who runs away from a life-saving surgery to try to track down a former girlfriend. Tru reunites them before the soldier dies, leaving his girlfriend hoping that their son didn't inherit his daddy's intelligence. Oh, and speaking of daddies: they suck.

One knife to rule them all

Morning After - An unholy yellow-hilted blade of evil messes with Tru's tiny brain and forces a hapless hobbit to kill Professor Donutface (and a dark-green vase). Okay, not really, but it would have made a lot more sense than what actually happened.

Everything I need to know about screenwriting I learned in kindergarten

Past Tense - The poison is in the ice! Roosters don't lay eggs! They don't bury the survivors! The parrot was deaf! The doctor was the patient's mother!

Blood Simpleton

Brother’s Keeper - Harrison falls in love with a woman he barely knows, so of course she's a psycho black-widow wannabe. Tru explains her special powers to him yet again, saves his ass yet again, and knocks stuff off her bedside table, yet again. Can a show fall into a rut by the third episode?

What Not To Write

Putting Out Fires - So, if you wrote a television show where your protagonist was somehow sent back in time to help a firefighter save a little girl, you would, like, show how he saved the girl, right? Right? Or at least mention how he did it? Or something? I guess we'll never write for television.

But will she take her shirt off?

Pilot - She runs around New York trying to save people she doesn't know. The plot doesn't make any sense. Her relatives are problematic. The dialogue is insipid. Don't we already have a Tarzan?
