Disclaimer: To my knowledge the following scenario is completely fictional & is not to be construed as standard operating procedure for the CW. I love it when my posts have disclaimers.
Writer 1: “Ok, so we have Richard in the hospital with a heart attack, we need ideas here”
Writer 2: “Alright, I’m seeing it, I’m seeing it. How about we use this as an instance to realize how fragile life & love is & how we all need to have better relationships”
Writer 1: “What do you think this is? Season 3? Wake up man. This season is all about product placement. Why do you think we do that recap of what everyone was wearing instead of mentioning books & gilmore-ism’s. What we really need to focus in on is where we can fit in a great Diane Von Furstenburg jacket in here. They are in the hospital, put your thinking caps on people. So Grandpa Gilmore, I’m not seeing a lot of him this episode. Let’s focus on Logan & some future business mistake he’s going to make. We can sell a lot of stuff off of Logan, like hair gel & pomade. Are the cool kids still saying pomade? Someone check on that for me. Also, none of that touchy feely stuff like last time he was in the hospital. Instead lets have all of the Gilmores being self absorbed & heartless.
Writer 2: “Brilliant, but let’s also throw in a little Christopher/Luke conflict because once Luke Danes is always there & once a Christopher always a Christopher.”
