Kid Nation: Parental Revenge?

kidnation.jpg

CBS’s Kid Nation has attracted the white-hot glare, or at least the 15 watt glare, of the Writer’s Guild. Seems it wasn’t just the little darlings who were abused. SAG jumped in, because only actors should be abused on television.

And don’t forget that CBS and the production entities own the life rights to the children’s stories. Maybe CBS will get really lucky next season and a tragic accident will occur, like a mine cave-in. Or maybe Jack McClellan will appear as special guest star. We smell MOW.

FBLA can’t help but wonder if the people who came up with this idea secretly hate their own spoiled, Crossroads-attending, Beemer-driving, Kitson-shopping offspring.

And as an aside, Wally Ann Wharton heard a caller on talk radio yacketing about how this show was

just like Lord of the Rings

and when the host suggested Lord of the Flies, she cackled “Him, too”.

Lordy, lordy.
