An unprecedented three entries in one day!
I predicted Stephanie was going to get fired once they entered the three entered the boardroom. And no, it this isn’t a postdiction, it really was a prediction — my sister was a witness.
She was telling me to shut up because she really wanted the loose cannon Chris to get fired.
Whatever, this season is very horrible compared to the last two seasons. (In case you don’t know me very well, horrible is what I use to substitute when I don’t want to use the uncouth “this sucks.”) The first season was definitely the best, and I’ll tell you why. It’s because they used real people who had a lot of charisma and personality. They were contenders and all of them were admirable. The last two seasons, they really pushed the reality show theme. They picked people specifically to have conflicts to make the show more interesting. Newsflash, the show isn’t more interesting. Ratings are down. It doesn’t matter what your gimmicks are; it’s the people. The personalities of the contestants make the show, but you don’t have to go out of the way to pick especially quirky or explosive people. You won’t find another Omarosa. Bring back outstanding people and ratings will go up again.
And now, to comment on commercials…
Sunny D. “Wowza meter”?? WUH?? Just… no… just… that’s so… no… please, you’re killing me with the uncoolness.
Why is that one fast food chain (my memory fails me) using a marching band? I guess it’s a successful commercial if they’re targeting a certain demographic, but when I look at it objectively, it just makes no sense.
Last one, those Truth commercials really bug me. That’s not satire! That’s not cynical humor. It’s cheap imitation manufactured propaganda dark humor. (Enough adjectives for ya?) I mean, it’s stuff I should think it’s funny, but it’s obviously not funny. I feel manipulated, worse than what a cigarette company will do. As much as a fan I am of fighting propaganda with propaganda, it almost makes me want to smoke a cigarette in protest. Almost — at least bad commercials won’t give you cancer.
