Let's Make It A Fair Fight.

There's this new cable channel called CBS All-Access.
To promote it, along with a lot of old shows, they have this extension of "The Good Wife" called
"The Good Fight".
It has several elements of "The Good Wife"---Christine Baranski,  several other familiar cast members,  the tone and level of writing.
They offered the first hour on CBS Prime Time, for free.
But all episodes following cost seven bucks a month.
Now, I don't mind paying extra for extra programming on cable.
I have Netfllix, and Amazon Prime.
Both channels have tons of original programming.
CBS All Access only has "The Good Fight" and nothing else new.
Unless they get their act together, they'll never get their hands on my money.
At least give some indication that they are headed in that direction.
Otherwise,  I'll just have to wait until there is enough original programming that I want to see, so that I feel comfortable ordering CBS All access and begin binge-watching "The Good Fight"
This is my first threat.
I'm serious.

My books, "Show Runner" and it's sequel, "Show Runner Two", can be found at the Amazon Kindle Store.
Along with the newer ones, "The Man Is Dead", and "Report Cards".
They are all compilations of blog entries that have since been removed from the blog.
So this is the only way you can find them.
You can search by typing in my name, Cindy Williams, Laverne and Shirley, The Odd Couple, or Happy Days.
Check them out.
You don't need a Kindle machine to download them.
Just get the free app from Kindle, and they can be downloaded to an IPhone, IPad, or Blackberry.
The paperbacks, "Mark Rothman's Essays" and my new novel, "I'm Not Garbo" are not e-books.
But they are available for people without Kindle.
I have many readings and signings lined up for those, and the thing about Kindle is you can't sign one.
If you'd like one of the paperbacks, personally autographed, contact me at macchus999@comcast.net
And now, we've got my reading of my "Laverne and Shirley Movie" screenplay on YouTube.

  2. I'll wait for the season to end, pay the 7 bucks for one month only, and then cancel.

About Me

Hi. I am, according to my Wikipedia entry,(which I did not create) a noted television writer, playwright, screenwriter, and occasional actor. You can Google me or go to the IMDB to get my credits, and you can come here to get my opinions on things, which I'll try to express eloquently. Hopefully I'll succeed. You can also e-mail me at macchus999@aol.com. Perhaps my biggest claim to fame is being responsible, for about six months in 1975, while Head Writer for the "Happy Days" TV series, for Americans saying to each other "Sit on it."
