    Most of us have no concept of what goes into creating a show, getting it on the air, and keeping it on. Perhaps we assume that the people in charge simply decide what amuses them at the moment, make those shows, stick them on, and wait to see if the public responds. Or maybe they just throw darts at a board? The truth, as with most things, is more complicated. In 'Hello', Lied the Agent, Ian Gurvitz has produced a corrosively funny insider's look at what being a television writer is really all about.

    What disappointed you about 'Hello', Lied the Agent?

    I understand how cynicism pervades the TV industry with its rampant rejection and random decision making, and I get why the author needs to refer to "a certain well-known actor" on a "popular network sitcom" rather than give the actual names . . . but what is his excuse for being boring?
