Lately I’ve noticed that “the” is all over entertainment. In a world of high creative-types, I’m bewildered on the blandness of the “The” statement. It’s a cop out for being original in the hopes that the latest “The” will be the next daytime hit (aka The View) or in the case of movies, an Oscar nod (aka: The GodFather, The Graduate, The Exorcist, The Insider).
Yet, there’s something about the most recent boom of “The’s” that doesn’t ring in my ear, success.
- The Five
- The Chew
- The Talk
- The Help
- The Revolution
After all, once upon a time there was a little web project, named, The Facebook. Makes me wonder if dropping “the” helped it’s cause to become a worldwide phenomenon? Just a thought.
