Hold onto your seats, Gasmii! We’ve got a house full of 14 annoying stereotypes on a show that seems to be a combination of Big Brother, Solitary 1.0/2.0/3.0, and The Jetsons. I love Solitary and The Jetsons, but have never watched one episode of Big Brother. Hopefully I can handle an entire season of this.
In this premier episode, we are introduced to the 14 players, the house, and the basic weekly premise. They come in two-by-two on a Jetsons tube elevator. We have a token player for each stereotype.
Jeffrey – the gay guy
Joy – the slut
Robin – the mom
Kevin – the straight guy
Stephanie – the unattractive chick
Mike – the older guy
Andrea – the straight-laced religious person
Apollo – the sensitive nice guy
Gene – the black guy
Erica – the big-boobed blonde
Jacob – the over-energetic annoying game player
Holly – the hot chick that wants to be taken seriously
Alex – the strategic game player
I hate Alex from the beginning, because he says stupid crap he made up with his rich buddies in high school like “Prime Time 99″ and “Baby Back Bitch” and says these things over and over again. He’s the type of guy who hosts frat parties with a smoking jacket and ascot. We’ve seen this guy a million times on 80s high school movies.
There is a female Hal/Holly type voice that comes on to tell everyone about the next thing. The first thing they learn is that the viewers are in control and will vote on their challenges, rooming situations, and other things. Their first challenge groups them East vs West and has them matching their opposing teammates with a their revealing fact. Each team must have a captain and the captain of the losing team will automatically be up for elimination which, in this case, is called Limbo. Another teammate will be voted into Limbo by their fellow players. They have a very cheesy voting method that seems to use an XBox Kinect.
I won’t give all the dirty details in the minicap so as not to spoil the fun for those who haven’t yet watched. There’s a somewhat surprise ending in this particular episode, but really isn’t when you think about it. The sad thing is about this show is that all of the reality shows have been done, so there’s not much in the way of surprise twists. But, it might still be fun to watch the drama unfold.
The full recap will be up shortly, so stay tuned. In the meantime, check out Chooch’s TVgasms Investigates: Glass House.
