"One thing that could happen—and, I would argue, should happen—in these desperation-driven times is an industry-wide dumpster dive," says Ben Lindbergh. "If networks have holes to fill and can’t fill them with something new, they should show us what we missed out on. Empty out the archives and give us Game of Thrones and other unaired, unpicked-up, completed pilots of the past. Let us marvel at well-known actors in unknown roles. Let us laugh at the worst work of celebrated auteurs. Let us speculate about what would have happened if a rejected series hadn’t been stuck in someone’s desk drawer. Let us wonder why unjustly passed-on pilots weren’t picked up and advocate for those wrongs to be rectified. Until it’s safe to create new content, allow us to sightsee on the TV roads not taken."
