Too sensitive??

I went to the University library and found out that they only have one book on writing for TV published since 1980. Seriously, most of the books are older than I am and that kind of scares me. Either television scripts haven't changed much - which I doubt - or the library needs to get their butts in gear and order some new books. *grin*

So I checked out the most recent book thinking it would be the best to help me. Fourteen pages in they made two really nasty cracks about David Caruso and NYPD Blue. At that point I calmly shut the book and put it back in my bag. That's only because I was on campus. And it's a book that doesn't belong to me. If I did own it the thing would be a pile of smoldering ashes in the backyard. I did look at one other thing and it just proved to me that the guy either doesn't care about CSI or didn't do his homework, which is what he kept telling us is the key to successful TV script-writing. And I quote, "In the CSI episode 'The Dove Commission' a woman in a red dress is killed at a party." I read that three times before it finally made sense and I realized that he wasn't talking about CSI - he was talking about CSI:NY. Two totally different shows lumped into one. *sigh*

Now I want to write the author a nasty note. *smirk*

If he doesn't he probably will soon. I couldn't believe it when I read it. And I have his name because I am citing the book in the report. *evil smirk*
