The Formula

Katy Perry - Wide Awake

Katy Perry – Wide Awake (Photo credit: AlexKormisPS (ALM))

The majority of romantic/comedy films or TV shows follow a formula, boy meets girls, boy and girl flirt (if you are a TV show for several seasons), boy gets girl, then either boy loses girl, or show implodes because the success of the TV show was based on the will they or won’t they chemistry (Moonlighting, Bones), in all cases the boy for better or worst gets the girl back.

But the formula is changing, 5 years ago if we were still following the old formula we would be in the boy loses girl act of the show/film. This section often shows the passage of time thru montages, her’s filled with rain and said music Rhianna’s “Stay”, would work nicely here.  Shots of the girl, unable to concentrate at work staring blankly at a computer, going thru the daily motions of life like a zombie, disconnected. Not even her dog can comfort her since they they are both broken hearted.

His montage, shows him driving to business appointments, while Bruno MarsWhen I was your Man” plays in the background,

Hmmm too young, too dumb to realize
That I should have bought you flowers and held your hand
Should have gave you all my hours when I had the chance
Take you to every party cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby is dancing, but she’s dancing with another man.

My pride, my ego, my needs and my selfish ways
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made
And it haunts me every time I close my eyes

Maybe he listens and realizes what he has lost or he quickly changes the the radio to some banal talk radio that doesn’t make him think.

In the tradition of the new romantic comedy formula, our girl, is writing her own third act montage set to Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake“,

Yeah, I was in the dark
I was falling hard
With an open heart
I’m wide awake
How did I read the stars so wrong?
I’m wide awake
And now it’s clear to me
That everything you see
Ain’t always what it seems
I’m wide awake
Yeah, I was dreaming for so long

I wish I knew then
What I know now
Wouldn’t dive in
Wouldn’t bow down
Gravity hurts
You made it so sweet
‘Til I woke up on
On the concrete

In 2013 we don’t wait for the boy to get the girl back. We move forward and create a new act one in a new movie or TV show. While we are in preproduction on our new show, lets re-watch some of TV’s best comedies.

Cheers

The People’s Choice Awards 2012

11 Jan

Here are my predictions (in bold) for the 2012 People’s Choice Awards.  The cool thing about these awards are they are voted on by the people, and the site doesn’t limit how many times you can vote.  So Team Edward can sit there for hours on end voting for Robert Patinson over and over.  My predictions are based on that and the demo for this is 18-25 year olds.  I am not in this demo, so my guesses may be way off.
