david, i love you.
I tried to watch this but found it too awful to bear. I did like the cutting of the sash, which was reminiscent of the cutting of the umbilical cord. No one ever told me pageant ladies were so ugly, either... some of them were cute but most of them made me wince.
I find this show entertaining in the most horrific way.
The woman with the future pornstar daughter, who went to reform school...so broken. no wonder he daughter is such a fuck up.
Mmm. Sequins and silicone. It's like a drag show.
That clip had the quickest most nauseating cuts ever. I've got a freaking headache. But I must say that the show looks disgustingly appetizing.
And let's not forget that there's an actors' strike looming. Most of the major film studios will be shutting down productions by March or so. Oh boy! Looks like 2008 will be a pretty forgettable year as far as movies and TV.
I just couldn't bring myself to watch this.
What watching the commercials did do, however, is remind me that what I love most about my mom is that she would never in a million years even consider entering herself or her kids in a beauty pageant.
Dear Bob in Heaven, someone please pay the fucking writers already. I don't care if we have to take up a collection or install some sort of E-gold system for our downloads that goes direct to the WGA. Don't the television executives have any sense of decency? Concern for the sanity of their fellow man? Clue?
I'm getting old; I kept mishearing the de-sashing as de-SNATCHING.
i get the rubber-necking at a traffic accident appeal (i watched too). a number of the people are horrible! by that i mean their personalities. but how about a little more accuracy in the reporting of the facts. out of what 11 sets of contestants, only two teams used the word "bombshell" - that is hardly "most". and i think it's great the team that had the most points in the "first impression" contest last night was the team that another harried team find outfits that would work for them. i doubt i'll watch on nights when there are alternatives (i don't have cable, and my dvd wasn't working), but if there's nothing else on, i'll watch what is surely to escalate in bad behavior.
bad unscripted TV will force the writer's strike to end sooner. the unfortunate outcome being that we, the internet viewer, will have to pay. there's no way the networks are going to pass up the opportunity to both make more money, and make the writer's look like the bad ones.
If this is the best TV can offer, I guess I will be meeting my 52 book goal this year.
For what it's worth, when I finished watching the mom and daughter models, I finished reading James Baldwin's "Another Country," and goddamn it was good.
It occurs to me that there may be a queer revenge afoot here:
Before this is over, we might well be seeing all sorts of polls on which mother-daughter duo men would most like to double-dip.
