Returned Volunteer character in new Fox TV Show
|By Terry Adcock on Monday, April 15, 2002 - 2:03 am: Edit Post|
If Hamish Linklater plays a dufus Alan Colmes as a foil to Caan's rendition of sociopath Sean Hannity, thank you, I'm not interested. It will just be another Rupert Murdoch low-class offering, shamefully misusing high-class actors for Murdoch's slimey purposes.
Give me Ally Mcbeal. At least there is no so-called "RPCV character" to act dumb and degrade the Peace Corps ideals.
Why don't they call it "Rupert vs the Peace Corps" (a la "Joe vs the Volcano")? That will guarantee a minimal audience.

WHO IS REALLY TAKING THIS SERIOUSLY? A HOLLYWOOD SITCOM? SINCE WHEN WERE PCV'S PARTICULARLY LIBERAL?
I CAN'T SEE AN 'ALL IN THE FAMILY' TYPE SHOW, GOD FORBID. I DON'T THINK MOST AMERICANS HAVE A CLUE ABOUT THE PEACE CORPS, OR THE REST OF THE WORLD. THE SHOW WOULD HAVE TO HAVE A MULTI-NATIONAL CAST, FOR STARTERS, FOR ME TO TAKE IT SERIOUSLY! EVERYTHING ON TV IS STEREOTYPED, AND I'M AFRAID THE PC WOULD BE STEREOTYPED, ALSO.

Out of Place-Out of Mind
Comes to my mind, if the sitcom writers were former PCV'S the show could be enlightening, instead of the usual pablem on the tube.

For all you crybabies out there, SHUT UP!
Give Peace a Chance, Jeez! I did my service from 1978-1980, inclusive, and it changed MY life. Three years of some of the most challenging situations and events that I truely relish, even to this day, 25 years later. Directionless, headed for rehab, I became a teacher back here and have loved it. Straightened me completely out. If Fox wants to explore possibilities(which is just exactly what you wanted to do when you chose the Corps), at least give them a chance. I, too, am skeptical, but I urge all of you to consider the positive potentials. How long did it take TV-Land to create and produce a credible rendition of "Lord of the Rings"? Stop and consider. If it turns putrid, we all can justifiably complain, and redisplay "Power to the People" They will take it off the air. But don't condemn what you don't know. That's just, plain STUPID. Hopefully you really did learn something during your two years of grace, other than how to be irritatingly parochial.

Joining the Peace Corps after spending years working in the film industry, I'm excited to see that there is an attempt to explore and promote volunteerism in any way possible even though the motivation behind it is about money...it may not last but at least it's a try...I think it might be interesting to get an idea of the adjustment and realizations of returning home and getting to know friends and family again and vice versa...my idea for a title:

"Relative Strangers" hits the readjustment nail on the head. If portrayed accurately, this would be an excellent recurring theme.
"Post Corps" is very good also.

I think the actors of the show as well as the writers should visit a few PCV posts around the world, like say for example, a no running-water, only onions, tomatoes and garlic at the twice a week market in your village - type - post. I would hate to see this be a mockery!

I can't see this being anything but a mockery and a farce. There are, however, hundreds of thousands of folk who wouldn't even notice. I'd hate it, but any PR is good PR (thank you Mark Cuban). Likely it would only demean Peace Corps, but it wouldn't hurt recruiting.
