Lather, rinse, repeat....as needed!

Recycled TV Shows...they are rampant and everywhere. So much so that if recycling these shows would do a lot for the Earth's carbon footprint, then we would have efficiently solved our eco-woes.

I could not help but chuckle while reading through this piece from NY Mag on stories in movies and TV  which have become so "high concept" it's the only formula being followed:

Can you imagine how many Friends, Lost & Sex and The City copycats are on TV now?

These are just random titles. I'm pretty sure other people can add plenty more to this one. And they didn't even list down cops, lawyers & doctor shows. That list would have been longer.

Some of these shows have yet to premiere this Fall.
