I’m not generally one to get all up in arms about a TV show. But the other night I saw one that was so awful that somewhere in the first nine minutes I actually saw my soul drift sadly away from my body, desperately trying to slip out the window, most likely with the goal of getting to Virgin where it could pick up a quality show in DVD like the British Office.
This collection of images – which is really the only thing I can properly call it, because the premise is so horrifyingly substanceless that it can’t really qualify as a television show - puts a 30 year old bachelor in between a group of 40 year olds and a group of 20 year olds. Who will he PICK? Some hot, stupid, young people? Or some smart, not that hot, slightly older people? Are you listening women? Those are your choices as to what you can “be.”
To clarify: the 40 something aren’t “not that hot” because of their age; they’re “not that hot” because at least half of them appear to have had their faces placed on tennis stretchers. And the 20 something girls aren’t just stupid because they’re young -they’re stupid because they’re constantly dissing the older women, referring to them as “decrepit,” as if they hadn’t noticed that they too will one day age and be as “decrepit” as the women they’re mocking. Although some of them already have that weird thing going on where even though they’re 22 they look like they’re 44 and divorced seven or eight times.
What group of DICKWADS got together and decided it would be fun to turn women against each other in this manner????? At what point in their careers did they decide they simply didn’t give a shit about anything at all, including their own mothers, sisters, and daughters, and decided to just fart toxic crap all over the TV landscape? FUCK.
I feel like there’s more to say on this but I have to get drunk first. More later.
