    I'm with some other people. The guy's writing really didn't do it for me. His style usually seems to be all over the map.

    One thing I'm hearing is that he walked away rather than be reassigned to SI.com. Don't have confirmation, though.

    It's one thing to criticize a writer, there's nothing wrong with that. My problem is that a lot of people here rip EVERY popular writer. When you just sit back and pick apart the most popular writers in your own profession, it looks more like jealousy.

    Everybody on here could learn something about storytelling from American Idol. As for the talent... now that Jennifer Hudson's been nominated for an Oscar, it's just not the best analogy anymore...

    I think the popularity of "Friends" is more an indicator of falling standards.
