City of Sitcoms

Coming this fall! What happens when a Rogue Isles disaster bankrupts Arachnos? Five of the strangest roommates in one Paragon City apartment, that's what! Tune in Tuesday nights to see Lord Recluse, Ghost Widow, Black Scorpion, Captain Mako and Scirocco as roomies!

Sneak Peaks:

* Lord Recluse and Ghost Widow in the living room. Widow is standing on top a chair and pointing towards the floor screaming at the top of her lungs.

"EEEEEK! Spider!! Squish-it-squish-it-squish-it-squish-it!"

* Captain Mako standing in the kitchen with a mound of dented and mauled tuna cans about his feet.

"Awright... who stole the freakin' can opener?!"

* Living room is in a shambles. Ghost Widow is looking ticked off. Black Scorpion is spinning around in circles in the air, knocking over lamps, tables and what all with his feet and head.

"Jeez... fer the last time... I'll put the frackin' seat up... now lemme down!"

* Lord Recluse spots Captain Mako and Black Scorpion peering through a cracked door into the living room. He wanders over to investigate.

LR: "Widow forget to bring her towel to shower again?"

CM: "Nah, no such luck... but she did invite Wretch over to visit."

LR: "Oh Lord, what did you two do to him this time?"

BS: "We told 'im that that dead plant on the mantle is a rare Peruvian Peek-a-boo plant."

CM: "Yeah.... then we told 'im that it only blooms when the person watching it blinks... he's been staring at it for 23 minutes now..."

* Widow: "The Landlord is here for the rent guys! Fork it up!"

The others gather, hand the Landlord (who has his back to the camera.. all we see is a fedora and a trench coat) the cash and then disperse, leaving only Widow and Recluse.

GW: "Is it me or does our Landlord look vaguely familiar?"

LR: "Never really thought of it... but now that you mention it... he DOES sort of remind me of someone..."

Shot changes to show the Landlord walking down the hall... it is Nemesis robot wearing a trench coat, fedora and paste-on fake mustache.

* GW: "Darn it Scirocco will you turn that stupid Emo Music down?!"

BS: "I'll take care of it, Widow..."

(he disappears off screen for a moment then suddenly Death Metal is blasting out twice as loud as the Emo Music)

BS: "There... much better."

* Scirocco: (to himself) "I've been in love with Widow for years... and now we're living together.. if I was ever going to have a chance with her... it's now... I need to talk to another woman... someone who can give me the female perspective on how to best approach her.."

Silver Mantis(walking in): "Hey Scirocco... have you seen Scorpion?"

Scirocco: "Mantis! You're an answer to my prayers... tell me... do you know any women I can talk to?"

* LR: "Listen ... I don't care how it happened... but the damage to the kitchen is coming out of your share of the security deposit.."

BS: "Hey... it's not my fault... Mantis came over and she was feeling frisky..."

LR: "Don't want to hear it..."

BS: "The table just wasn't strong enough to..."

LR: "I said I don't want to HEAR IT!"

BS: "I'm sure a little plaster'll fix that ceiling right up... she wanted to try a new position..."

LR: "SHUT UP!!"

BS: "Okay.. okay.. fine... sheesh.. um... just one thing though... I really would advise you don't eat the pudding in the fridge... just sayin'.."

* GW: "Mako... it's your week to do housework..."

CM: "Awww, man... why can't you get Scirocco to do it?"

GW: "Because it was Scirocco's turn last week... Why do you always complain so much? You don't hear Recluse complaining about his turn to clean, do you?"

CM: "Well, duh.. he's got six hands and can summon hordes of Arachnos soldiers to do his bidding whenever he wants... gee... I wonder why he doesn't mind?"

Scir: "That's okay Widow, I'll take Mako's turn for him this week."

CM: "Really? Gee, thanks Scirocco... I take back half the nasty things I've ever said about you..." (He walks off with a grin)

GW: "Why did you do that Scirocco? You know it only encourages him to be lazy."

Scir: "I can live with that... Besides... every thing he washes ends up smelling like fish... and I have to eat off those dishes..."

Tune In and watch every episode!

I sense a new line of videos for D_R and you to collaborate on...

Can you buy her a winning lotto ticket and then start production by mid-Spetember?

Steelclaw:

As always, hilarity ensues. You are still on a roll.

However, if this is going to attract sponsors, you will need some things that other sitcoms have:

1) A theme song. Something wacky like "Identical Cousins" for the Patty Duke Show or more expository like "The Beverly Hillbillies."

2) The wacky neighbors who routinely stop by. Fred and Ethel, Major Healy, Kramer... you get the idea.

3) The nosy neighbors who keep trying to reveal the secret. This is sort of optional, since it does not appear to be a secret who these folks are, but a lot of comedy mileage there.

4) The know-it-all, either snob or slob; Frasier or Cliff Clavin. Since it is a given that either they will be humorously mistaken in their facts or be roundly contradicted moments later, this is comedy gold, Jerry.

I want you to have a long run and cop many Emmys! And if you need a boost for laughs, remember these 3 words:

"Cameo by Shatner."

Now, let's get this into production, move, move, move!


"How do you know you are on the side of good?" a Paragon citizen asked him. "How can we even know what is 'good'?"

"The Most High has spoken, even with His own blood," Melancton replied. "Surely we know."

*laughs and groans at the same time*

It wasn't enough that people started calling for me to make LAW AND ORDER: PARAGON CITY, but now this, too?!

Maybe when God answers my petition to put 36 hours in the day...

I'll tell you what... if I ever win big lottery money I'll personally bankroll D_R to make movies...

I think the first one will be a full length feature film "City of Oz"... heh
