Yes please

We write the TV, radio and theatre shows you love. Do you want robots and AI doing that job?

  1. To a first approximation there are no TV, radio, and theatre shows I love.

    I don’t listen to the wireless, on TV I watch only whodunnits – often written by the defunct Agatha Christie – and the rugby and football. I’ve stopped going to the theatre because of bad acoustics and lack of leg room.

    So you can bugger off, madam.

  2. I don’t have a TV and the last time I went to the theatre the play was rubbish and only one actor out of six could, you know, act. So what’s this “you”, Lisa?

    Judging from the England rugby team – who might as well be robots – I doubt AI would be an improvement, however.

  3. I look forward to seeing their expressions when the Twickenham crowd start the first of many renditions of Swing Low.

    I strongly believe there are still a few who will crack an approving smile even if the hand gestures are too much to hope for.

    See also “Delilah”.

  4. You mean they don’t already? I thought TV writers had been replaced by a Perl script about twenty years ago.

  5. If they can do it as well and cheaper – Yes.

    “People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.”

  6. Of all those who occasionally withhold their services trying to force change, usually increased pay, writers and the ilk would rank at or near the bottom as to their strike having any impact on society. (Except possibly to improve it).
