    Sometimes writers just have the same instincts. A showrunner friend recently asked me and a couple of other writers for springboard ideas on a concept he was developing. Three of the springboards were exactly the same, from ALL THREE of us. It was just the obvious way to go, and we all went there.

    Sorry, this got posted to the wrong thread. It should have been for the one about ideas being stolen.
