Protagonist: “So, I’m sitting at a table alongside three remarkably bad directors. I know this sounds implausible, but just bear with me.”

Antagonist: “Go on.”

P: “One is Brian DePalma, who at one time was actually quite good. But now, and we’re talking 2003 here, he's fallen like a rock. Or a log. Like a boulder, for crying out loud.”

A: “Got it already. Let’s go.”

P: “The second is Michael Bay. Now Bay, well, he’s just plain bad. He’s doing his mainstream thing. He’s not even trying too hard. And he makes sh*tloads of money.”

A: “Right.”

P: “The third, and last director at the table, is the indefensible Joel Schumacher. Still trying to put out ‘important’ stuff. Trying to do something ‘highbrow,’ when in fact, it’s all about the corporate tie-ins. Do you catch my drift here?”

A: “But what makes this a reality series?”

P: “I don’t know.”
