Describe shows you don't watch
« on: May 13, 2010, 07:21:48 AM »
Describe a show you've never watched using only what people have told you about it, promos, posters, internet ads, radio ads, what you assume from the genre you assume it's in, etc.  Aside from promos, if you've watched even one minute of the actual show, you're disqualified from describing it.

I'll go first:

Glee

A Fame ripoff musical show about singing teenagers in high school. They flirt and date a lot, cheat on each other, breakup, etc. Usual high school crap. Given how many times I see her old assed fugly assed mug on posters, internet ads, and promos, apparently Nurse Jackie moonlights as a teacher in this school. She's a bitch and gives everybody a hard time. She's probably sleeping with a student and I'll give 70-30 odds that student is female. It's not like any dude would have her old ass fugly ass.

I'm setting the over/under for number of patronizing to teens cliche songs sung per episode at 3.

Sopranos:

Analyze This ripoff (a lot of people forget that now since it had such a long and glorified run) but minus the humor and make sure the mob boss is even fugiler and fatter than De Niro (which is really hard to do). It doesn't sound like the mob boss ever taps his shrink's ass so that's different than the two movies I think. Something about some dude getting his head squashed by a car tire. And top the whole mess off with an epicly retarded ending that makes even the St. Elsewhere ending point and laugh at your ending, it makes The Game ending seem intelligent, and it makes the BSG ending not seem like a copout.

How I Met Your Mother

Long rambling story about how two future parents met that is so long winded and nonsensical it makes Sean Penn's Oscar introduction seem cogent.

Two and a Half Men
Two guys hire prostitutes all the time, and somehow manage to not get charged with child endangerment.

Prison Break
A guy breaks out of jail, but it takes him a really long time.  Maybe he spent a lot of time planning it?  Maybe it's like 24, but instead of real time and TV time having a 1:1 ratio, it has a 2:1 or 3:1 ratio?  It seemed like he was always climbing or hiding somewhere.  Maybe he broke out of prison and found out that the prison was actually inside another, much larger prison?

NCIS
Isn't this just a CSI ripoff?  Maybe the network that created this show just wanted a CSI show to compete with CBS.  [Looks up which network this show is on]  It's a CBS show?  What the heck?  You're telling me that CBS has 5 shows that are the exact same thing?  Not even NBC went that far with Law and Order.  Okay whatever....oh, and I think this has something to do with JAG.....and there's a girl that looks like she actually meant to apply at a tattoo parlor, except she wouldn't have gotten the job because she's too much of a poser.

I heard about this show about an old chick who solved murders. Old people used to watch it, before they all died.

Oh that's Father Dowling Mysteries I think.  Or was it Matlock?  ;)

Chuck : The matre d' at some restaurant goes out of his way to fulfill all sorts of odd requests from his surprisingly violent clientele, all the while mildly flirting with the head waitress (or possibly manageress of the restaurant).

I've never actually heard any of the audio from the show, I'm only ever seen the promos at the gym where the sound is off.

It took me much longer to get this joke than it should have.  Well played, sir.

Fringe:An Xfiles rip off where the cast is nowhere near as good and the over all plot arc makes even less sense.

I don't know what it is, but horse face blasts always make me laugh.  Maybe it's my cruel streak.  LOL
