Never A Shortage Of Good Names

In the grand tradition of Grey’s Anatomy, Hart of Dixie, and Better Off Ted, NBC recently handed out a script commitment for a new legal series called Miranda’s Rights, the story of 28-year-old Miranda Coale, a disgraced attorney looking to redeem herself by starting up a law firm staffed by millennial lawyers living in the same house.  It’s looking to become the legal answer to Grey’s, which bodes will for the quality story-telling ahead.  I do, however, love a good eponymous pun title, so world, keep on cranking them out.

    Time to make up our own punny show titles!

    The Right To Remain Silas: The story of a beat cop who begins to question his place in a faulty system, and whether he is on the right side of justice.

    Law and Norbert: A young nerd tries to revamp his image when he goes to law school.

    The DSM Five: Five newly-minted psychiatrists live together in a party house.

      The DSM Five sounds amazing.

      Bella of the Ball: A former Southern debutante who can’t find a husband because she is too tall starts a career in the WNBA.

      So, not on topic except vaguely on the topic of names, but while watching Kenny Rogers on Sunday, mrsdonez went to his Wikipedia page to figure out if anyone in particular was in “The First Edition” with him. They had that song used in The Big Lewbowski bowling scene about what condition your (my) condition is in? Anyway, I have been looking at this sentence:

      A last-ditch effort to jumpstart their domestic careers was done in late 1974 when they filmed a television movie called “The Dream Makers.” A better than average drama about the music biz, they played the group Catweazel.

    I can’t believe it has taken until 2015 (2016 really given the upfront season) to make a show called Miranda’s Rights.

    I saw a landscaping truck that said “Lawn & Order” – I would hire that company if I ever needed to hire a landscaper.

    Keep those punny titles coming folks, but can we also speculate for a second on this show? Which is obviously perfect, but just for a second let’s pretend that is doesn’t make sense. Why do they live together? Is it part of their contract? Is that in any way enforceable? What if they have families? Do their salaries reflect the fact that their employer pays their rent? Who on earth would want to live with the weird losers they have to see 8 hours a day at work?
