Ye Olde Televisionne Scriptte

I've decided to order some older television scripts, the better to analyze them to death (Script City still beats Ebay when it comes to finding older scripts), but in the meantime, I thought I'd point to some examples of scripts -- as opposed to transcripts -- for some pre-1990 shows, available at

- The Andy Griffith Show: "The Sermon For Today" - a season 4 script written by John Whedon (father of Tom Whedon, grandfather of Joss Whedon)

- The Mary Tyler Moore Show: "Chuckles Bites the Dust" - written by David Lloyd

- The A-Team, pilot (PDF Format) - written by Stephen J. Cannell and Frank Lupo; one of those Cannell scripts that in some ways reads better than it plays.
