As professional bloggers we are constantly bombarded with requests for our keen insight into shows that people are watching. It’s like you don’t know what you just watched until we tell you what you just watched.
To that end, I had a request from a long-time friend of the site first time requester (insert sound effect here) to discuss one of her favorite shows (you know who you are MIDWEST JEN). Between the 3 writers of this blog we watch enough TV to kill a small elephant (I know that doesn’t make any sense, but I couldn’t think of anything else but now you at least get the point right). Still, I had never heard of this show:
So I had to look it up and quickly figured out why I had never heard of it – it’s airs on Lifetime, the network for women. And here I was thinking the CW was the network for women.
Anyway, the premise of the show is that all the women are going to leave town for a week and the men will have to fend for themselves. Right off the bat I’m struggling to see where they are going with this. Lifetime isn’t saying that once the women leave the town will turn into a smouldering heap of filth and lawlessness are they? See, I’m thinking that not using a coaster or getting our clothes all the way into the hamper is not an actual natural disaster, but I am about to find out.
So I spent about 30 minutes (that I will never get back) watching clips of this show. The show is set in a town in South Carolina. I mention this because in a lot of the clips they had to add subtitles because, while it was English they were speaking, you certainly couldn’t understand what they were saying. It was like watching a far less entertaining version of TRAIN SPOTTING.
So the women leave town and I will discuss two scenarios that occur (there were more, but I’m not going to talk about the sex toy party, seriously MIDWEST JEN there are kids who read this site).
First, since the women are gone, the men must run a beauty pageant. As a guy that sounds about right. Sometimes when my wife is out on a girls night, I get the kids together at my house and we stage impromptu beauty pageants. I like to mix it up and sometimes go MISS AMERICA format and sometime go MISS USA. I find it keeps the kids sharp and in pageant shape.
Second, for some reason once the women leave they feel that the men cannot survive unless they put together a sexy calender featuring some of the women in bathing suits. See that makes no sense. When a bunch of women get together they don’t do a sexy calendar, they have pillow fights in their underwear. Seriously Lifetime, that’s guy mentality 101.
So JEN, I’ve covered the show and you are welcome. To our other 7 fans, feel free to send in requests for us to cover other obscure ridiculous television shows.
