Franklin and Bash

Guest Author - Amy Romine

As soon as I see Mark-Paul Gosselaar I think of Screech and "Saved by the Bell" I am sorry Mark, I can't help it! You do deserve better. I have been pleasantly surprised by you ability to leave the 'Heart-throb Zack' in the past. Although we always knew that Zack would end up being a lawyer. Go figure?

Franklin and Bash is the story of two unorthodox lawyers hired into a large billion dollar firm. Why? Because the owner of the firm finds that the duo reminds of him self at the tender age of thirty. Gosselaar's character is the straight laced of the pair, but that is not in anyway stating that this guy is playing by the rules. His partner, played by Breckin Meyer is a little more of a free spirit, a blow the walls off the box kind of thinker.Along with them, come their two admin assistants, the beauty with brains and a uniquely agoraphobic law analyst. These side kick characters will no doubt add another level of entertainment. In many of these dramaity hits the supporting cast is as important, if not more important, than the main characters.

In the pilot episode we of course had to experience the stuffed suits mingling with the Hawaiian shirts. First thing that happens is that the biggest flat screen in the posh office is taken over by Bash and his Wii. As expected, the show is a stab at the underhandedness of most lawyers to get it done, where these guys walk the morale high ground and exact better results in the end.

I blogged the other day to my writer comrades about formulaic writing, and we took a look at why we continue to watch the same plots over and over again. As I explained in the blog it is not always the end result we are looking for, it is how the writers and or actors get us there. Franklin and Bash is a great example of a formulaic plot resulting in success because of the journey you are taken on.

I will state however that the 'butt' scene was highly unnecessary, and actually detracted from the creative telling of circumstance. So this is definitely not a show for anyone under the age if fifteen.

We want to get from Point A to Point B, but lets take a the scenic route this time around. If the writers remain consistent in their plotting, and keep the show just a step above drama it should join the non-network family of success.
