The Drug of the Nation

 

TELEVISION!! … I’ll admit I indulged in some tonight, and frankly I saw some disturbing stuff…..

Guess who starring in a new movie ….

Piranha

That’s right PIRANHAS!! now don’t get me wrong piranhas are pretty rad (albeit very ugly), but are they really enough to carry a whole movie? Furthermore the movie is in 3-D, but piranha’s always work best when they are the unseen terror, don’t they? Where everything looks normal till a water buffalo tries to ford the river and all of a sudden they tear his ass up like 100 Tiger Woods’ would do to some hookers. So piranhas really don’t work in 3-D.

So it looks like the people at comedy central are getting lazy. They are roasting David Hasslehoff. That’s kinda like shooting fish in a barrel isn’t it? Do you really need to roast David Hasslehoff? Hasn’t real life done that well enough already. You know its bad when Hulk Hogan and Pam Anderson are the classiest people there. I guess Comedy Central didn’t get the memo.

Animal Planet is just as bad …

Shorty's Rescue

Pit Boss … How did they come up with this one did they write down a bunch of stuff that’s popular right now on scraps of paper and pick two out of a hat … “we got pit bulls and midgets!! run with it!!!”

And while we are on that, exactly how much cocaine did the programing exec’s have to do in their meeting to think that making a show out of the Geico cavemen was a good idea?

I mean someone had to look at this and be like “I think we got a winner here”, and presumably at least a few other people had to agree. UNBELIEVEBLE for the love of god the commercials were getting stale by the time they came out with that….

I think I’m sticking with the internet….

    A lot on TV is really nuts. Too many channel and too many inane shows. A lot of idiocy produced for a population with many idiots who enjoy it. Maybe next we can get the Toenail Channel where you tune in each week to watch a group of peoples toenails grow. It COULD happen….really! lol VG post.

    I agree with you on a good deal. A David Hasslehoff roast seems insipid. Why would anybody care? Knight Rider ended about 25 years ago and just because his status as a German pop star is hilarious doesn’t mean he needs three hours of television devoted to him. Then again, we should remember the medium we are discussing.

    Piranha 3-D was fantastic, if you’re in the market for a bad movie with gobs of tits and blood. It’s moronic, yet amazingly entertaining. It fits into the “it’s so bad it was great” category, but sometimes that’s what I’m looking for. I do agree that showing the fish less does increase the terror (since the unseen villain is more intimidating than a visible one), but I don’t think that was the intention of Aja’s Piranha flick. Come to think of it, I don’t think it was the intention of Joe Dante with Piranha or James Cameron with Piranha II: The Spawning. Those movies are comedies, disguised as horror flicks.
