Why Bland Happens


Doctor Who failed miserably at the focus group stage during its 2005 rebirth, and that could have spelled disaster for producer Russell T Davies if he hadn’t managed to conceal the result from BBC executives. I’m fairly sure that all the BBC bosses since then are glad that the focus group results were kept from them.

Wow. I didn’t know that.

Hollywood researches the hell out of everything. From single-line pitches to finished products.

And still most of the things they make for theaters and TV fail.

You would think they’d try another approach.

  1. That’s the problem with Hollywood….all that research leads to them releasing the same, tired, formulaic crap.
