In my high school we had the 5-sentence paragraph. (11? I can't even imagine.) Except I remember being able to do the same formula with only 3 sentences lol.
But I absolutely agree with you about the tone/content of the AI stuff. And "regurgitating" is an apt word. It's very clear to me that the AI bot never actually saw the show.
I do have a memory, this one from middle school, of a student having left the first part of a book report on a desk. It began, "The Prime Of Miss Jean Brody is about a school teacher, named Miss Jean Brody, in her prime."
