What does this have to do with Suits? In the case of Suits, one would think that all they are focused on is money. This is patently false. Suits are only focused on themselves. Their hubris is so great that they can not see that the decisions they make are obviously self serving and probably bad. They are the clear cutters of the forest of creativity. They try to shoehorn in processes that 'look good on paper' only to have them fail miserably and then accuse those under them of screwing it up. Suits have ruined a lot of different things over time. I will focus on TV/Movie entertainment.
website and see for yourself. How did the suits ruin it? This was in the golden era of TV and Movies before the Internet and before special effects. The only way to make specials and have them be seen was to put them on network TV and usually sprinkle in some stars or athletes in for good measure. How did the suits ruin it? Well this is the first show I can remember that was Sequeled to DEATH. Not an easy death, but a long drawn out hammy b-movie kind of death. With a cracking 3 made for TV sequels not to mention a cartoon version called Gilligan's Planet (I'm sure you can guess the premise. It got Lost in Space I'm afraid). This was the first time I saw a show I loved get beaten to death as it was played over and over like a hit single until you can't stand the sound of it anymore. Oh yeah, guess what, a feature movie is in the works...*sigh*
7. TMNT Movies - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The fan base for this comic series is pretty deep because it's just kitchy enough to be cool. Once those movies came out you could see the merchandising greed come to the fore. It was shameless. The first movie did ok, but the sequels...oh my. Vanilla Ice? Ice Ice baby?!? Are you kidding?! It was clear that the initial cool of the concept had stayed with the first movie.
look. A little adult content, but no more than pg-13 I think.
This list is FAR from comprehensive, and really just a few examples that I could come up with. If the suits could just realize that many times good management comes from NOT doing something. A lot of things would be a lot better.
Thanks for reading! See you in a fortnight.
P.S. Special thanks to my wife Stephanie for correcting a few glaring errors in this blog that I really should have recognized. teks.
