Jerry Springer

At the gym this morning, Jerry Springer was on all the televisions, and I couldn't help thinking about the structure of a talk show as an improvisational, collaborative story. You've got the host who coordinates and decides what the story is about, what the shape of it is like, when new characters come in . . . but both the participants and the audience also shape how the story turns out. I bet you could make a fantastic mini-rpg based on the structure of the talk show, but I'd have to watch a lot more talk shows before I could write the game. Maybe after the play is done. -g-
