Jerry Springer - Teh Cr4p Musical... [Jan. 8th, 2005|10:58 pm]
The Love Bug
I am seriously not impressed by this show.  I don't like musicals at the best of time, but this is just obscene.

I don't offend easily... and I'm not offended by the content, as such.  I'm more offended by the fact that people actually believe that this was a good show?!

Ok, I'll admit that the comic timing was pretty good, and the characters are very well played - especially Steve - but do we really need to know about a gay man f'ing someone up the arse?  Or about a man who likes s'ing in his nappy?

Please... where the hell is the entertainment value in that?  You wouldn't even see that kinda stuff on the TV show!!

Gah.

I'm off to watch Minority Report on Sky Movies 1.  Anyone wanna join me?

That show was invented "because of what it is" and I suspect the BBC only really showed it for impact.

Are you sure you didn't mis-interpret the intention of the show?

Sounds like you were after a Dr Phil and got a comic piss-take of a Springer which you weren't expecting....

And yes, if it were presented in a comical context, a detailed description of a gay man fucking someone up the arse could be funny.... Just like we pissed ourselves the other day when one of the bar staff at the Rigger stuck a rubber penis in her trousers and started making suggestive moves towards another member of bar staff...

75% of comedy is in the context
