cashmere mafia


im at this dinner with PLU friends, old and new. they are discussing the shows they download from torrent: heroes, fringe, true blood, ghost hunters. and except for heroes, im absolutely clueless about the shows. they look like they are so into these shows, which seem to come from a certain genre, action/sci fi ek. i couldnt contribute. im new at downloading torrent. and the only show ive been downloading is cashmere mafia, upon the recomm of my niece.

it's a sex and the city rip-off. it's SATC that's more fashionable, more intriguing, more into drama. and fails miserably. turns out ABC pulled the plug after 7 episodes. but i watch it just to see what happens next. and yes, the clothes are fabulous. the ladies, headed by lucy liu, are not exactly SATC copycats. it obviously wants to be more politically correct with an asian at the helm. the banter is quite heavy, a lot less witty and funny than SATC.

this is also a classic case in marketing, product development. this new product is supposed to be an improvement over the previous one (SATC), trying to address probably some perceived gaps in the previous product's performance. the new product fails because the market doesn't really feel that there is a need for improvement anyway. the industry, entertainment, thrives on totally new concepts/shows/products, not incremental innovations.

now going back to the first paragraph, are PLU's more into action now? wow. butch na butch! =)
