Same. is it america's obsession with "winning"? The obsession with being the biggest, the baddest, and all that is utterly impossible?
Who knows... Probably.
I mean, just look at the Great British Bake Off. This show is so wholesome. There is no "war" there is not intense, ridiculous, "challenge" just amazing REGULAR ass people that are spending their weekend in a tent baking with each other. i've cried a number of times watching this show because i have been so moved by the help that these people offer each other. and just how sad they are when someone has to leave. heartbreaking. I want everyone to win and they are all so talented...ugh tears.
And then look at any american cooking show. it is all "wars". Intense music. rushed ridiculous gimmicks. it is basically one long panic attack marketed as entertainment.
but my advice to you...
Write the damn movie!
"If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, you must be the one to write it." - toni morrison
so write the damn screenplay! film the damn thing! put it on youtube and watch that shit over and over.
so will terry crews
