On Two and A Half Men there was a scene where Charley’s girlfriend Mia finds him with another woman. When she starts to leave and he asks her why she popped over she replies:
“After I cooled down I missed you (or something to that effect) so I came to make love you to you.”
I don’t know if it was the delivery–she’s not a good actress so far–or the line itself. So much of the show is clever and ridiculous. This didn’t fit at all. Maybe because she was whining as she said it.
Then there is Wife Swap. I. Q. points have been significatly shaved since viewing this gem. It’s depressing to see people in/out of their element and though it always results in some personal growth on the participants’ part, this time was way Jerry Springer at the end. The two wives leapt at one another over the table shouting obscenities. I’m all for liberal use of obscenities in every day life, but on TV? WTF?
Hehehehe…I hate that damn show, but it sucks me in every time. I tried to watch the skating show which may be the first reality show where a contestant gets maimed for life. And it doesn’t suck me in.
I’m supposed to be revising, but I need one more night for a break. That will make two nights since January 2, so that’s not bad. But there’s way to much horrible TV to draw me in when I’m feeling weak.
As an antidote to the couple of pop culture posts I’ve done lately, I’ll do an artsy one tomorrow. Wait and see.
And don’t forget to check out the Trainer’s Tip for the week…It got pushed down the page by mindless drivel.
