Hey Larry - I know that you do a "Larry David", and do a rewrite of all scripts, but I gotta say that unless you are the writer AND the editor, the episode seems to head straight into the dumper. I know you're giving the writers and other writers/producers the basic plot road on which to travel, but jeez, tonight's episode stunk. Who will Greenwood dance with next week - Phyllis Diller's mom? And I am getting pretty tired of seeing him turn up with a new job every week. What computer program does he use to produce his resume? Or is it a great laser printer that impresses his prospective employers? Or is it that real expensive resume paper that does the trick? Whatever it is, my suspension of disbelief is almost suspended. And how about getting Touchstone to fork over dough for some classy directors? Tobe Hooper was great. How about bringing him back for a few episodes? Regardless, the writing definitely needs to improve. The show is riding a downhill slope. I know that you already have a number of episodes already in the can, so I guess we'll see. I'm still a fan, and I ain't leaving just yet. AJ Tucker porkmatzoh@usa.pipeline.com

But he has also been a Pizza Delivery boy (hope the resume was perfect), and a film developer (add chemicals here). He has to eat, and many places don't really look too deeply. My $.01 (after taxes)

Po> And I am getting pretty tired of seeing him turn up with a new job Po> every week. I don't see many ways around this, other than to just not show him at work. Which would be just fine by me, especially since he always seems to end up working at one of THEIR places. Heck, if he keeps this up he should be able to retire on THEIR benefits before The Director does<G>. Po> What computer program does he use to produce his resume? Resume? I think you may have an over-inflated sense of what orderlies do exactly. I was an orderly during college (at a fairly large hospital) and it took all of 20 minutes to complete the application and I was hired. I have not seen him get a job yet that would require a resume. He's a drifter, they still exist though some tend to call them "homeless". FidoNet: 1:112/32.11 Internet: gregory.armstrong@eqjaxfl.gate.net ... Good sex means being told "Stop and I'll kill you!!!"

Larry, What does it take to become an Executive Producer? Not just on your show, but any abroad. Thanks, Joseph

But TV's jobs tend to be of the blue-collar variety, so perhaps a sterling resume isn't always necessary. There *was* a line in the latest episode to the effect that it's not difficult to get a job in a nursing home. Eric

If Tom Veil didn't get a new job every once in a while, he'd be broke! AND....how much of a resume does it take to deliver pizza? drop off deliveries? Anyone willing to do this sort of work can get these jobs... fill in a few forms, and you're hired. That's it. They did have one REALLY bad episode... the cyberspace one. But that's it...all the others have been really good. And sometimes...you have to suspend your disbelief to the limit... because in the end.... its still just fantasy
