If you're suffering from insomnia, see ARRIVAL. You'll be cured. Every character except Amy Adams is a cardboard cliche. A 30 min, mediocre Twilight Zone episode ridiculously padded into what feels like 7 hrs.

Interesting...sf people seem to like the film, though usually note it isn't up to Ted Chiang's source story, while a number of veteran writers for A/V media (among other work, but the common thread is pro A/V work) such as yourself are often among its harsher critics.

VIDEO: Here's a curiosity from 1972. Late in the third season of MEDICAL CENTER, an episode was devoted to a proposed spin-off starring Monte Markham as "Dr. Grainger." Rather than just list Markham as a guest star, the actual MEDICAL CENTER main title sequence was changed just for this episode to feature his credit. That would be akin to changing the STAR TREK main titles to add Robert Lansing's name for the ASSIGNMENT EARTH episode.

Ditto Harley's comment. Is this the British version of the MTM show?

Story
Tagline
Writer. Producer. Wickedly charming.
Introduction
Lee Goldberg is an ex-Navy SEAL, freelance Sexual Surrogate and a professional Pierce Brosnan impersonator. 

Okay, that's not true. But he wants this biography to be really exciting, so pay attention. If things bog down, I've been instructed to add a car chase or some explicit sex. 

Here's the real story. Lee Goldberg writes books and television shows. 

His mother wanted him to be a doctor, and his grandfather wanted him to go into the family furniture business. Instead, he put himself through UCLA as a freelance journalist, writing for such publications as American Film, Starlog, Newsweek, The Los Angeles Times Syndicate, The Washington Post and The San Francisco Chronicle (He also wrote erotic letters to the editor for Playgirl at $25-a-letter, but he doesn't tell people about that, he just likes to boast about those "tiffany" credits). 

He published his first book .357 Vigilante (as "Ian Ludlow," so he'd be on the shelf next to Robert Ludlum) while he was still a UCLA student. The West Coast Review of Books called his debut "as stunning as the report of a .357 Magnum, a dynamic premiere effort," singling the book out as "The Best New Paperback Series" of the year. Naturally, the publisher promptly went bankrupt and he never saw a dime in royalties. 

Welcome to publishing, Lee. 

His subsequent books include the non-fiction books Successful Television Writing and Unsold Television Pilots ("The Best Bathroom Reading Ever!" San Francisco Chronicle) as well as the novels My Gun Has Bullets ("It will make you cackle like a sitcom laugh track," Entertainment Weekly), Beyond the Beyond ("Outrageously entertaining," Kirkus Reviews), and The Man With The Iron-On Badge ("
As dark and twisted as anything Hammett or Chandler ever dreamed up" Kirkus Reviews)

"Take me now," she moaned, "you hot writer stud." 

She tore off her clothes and tackled him onto the floor, unable to control her raging lust. Nothing excited her more than being around a writer with a big list of books. 

Got your attention again? Good. I don't know about you, but I was starting to nod off. Where was I? Oh yes... 

Goldberg broke into television with a freelance script sale to "Spenser: For Hire." Since then, his TV writing & producing credits have covered a wide variety of genres, including sci-fi (SeaQuest), cop shows (Hunter), martial arts (Martial Law), whodunits (Diagnosis Murder, Nero Wolfe), the occult (She-Wolf of London), kid's shows (R.L. Stine's The Nightmare Room), T&A (Baywatch), comedy (Monk) and utter crap (The Highwayman). His TV work has earned him two Edgar® Award nominations from the Mystery Writers of America. 

His two careers, novelist and TV writer, merged when he began writing the "Diagnosis Murder" series of original novels, based on the hit CBS TV mystery that he also wrote and produced. And he also writes novels based on "Monk," another show he's worked on. 

But perhaps he's best known for his pioneering work mapping the human genome and negotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement. 

Goldberg lives in Los Angeles with his wife and his daughter and still sleeps in "Man From UNCLE" pajamas.
