Swamp fishing for a giant golden spermatozoon?

i gave this show its one chance, and it failed miserably.

Going OT here; please forgive me. Just saw a commercial for some shoe store, and it included the line, "You can't get arrested for getting high on heels." annika, my first thought was that you'd probably be relieved to hear that.

If you're referring to last nights show, tell me about it, apparently the spermatozoon can morph into a near catatonic, overhalls wearing, son of a shotgun pointing daddy. Real cool for alien life trying to fit in.

I know what you mean Paul; I'm not certain how invading the Earth entails turning into an extra from Deliverance. I was halfway expecting the guy to whip out an old guitar and start playing "Dueling Banjos"...

Ya know that new show E-Ring isn't that bad, its taken over the TV space that used to be occupied by NCIS

Of course you'd think so scof. It's because you don't have a frame of reference in reality fow how the defense of this country really works. E-ring is holly-drivel, whereas NCIS was just fucking ridiculous. Anyone who has crossed paths with NCIS and their predecessor NIS, knows what a laughable pack of fucking idiots in search of a mission they truly are.

Casca never misses a chance to remind us that he is after all USMC to the core.

Ha! That's pretty good writing for a jarhead. Reality hardly makes for good TV, even the reality shows need scripts. E-Ring has a hot marine chick and a hot lawyer chick, and NCIS had funny dialogue and a hot chick as well. At least we can agree November 10 is an important day, for it is the birthday of both myself and The Corps, Oorah!

"E-Ring has a hot marine chick", that should tip you off to the disconnection from reality right there. I guess the romance novel "quality" of the modern tv drama is the reason behind the popularity of reality tv. Good fiction is believeable.

Realistic or not. E-Ring entertains which is what it is supposed to do. I don't sit down to watch a show and spend my time thinking how disconnected from reality the show is. That's the purpose of entertainment, to disconnect you reality for a period of time and make life a little more enjoyable, which E-Ring does for me.
