So You Think You Can Dance: PottyMouth
Last night we kicked off season 7 with auditions in both New York and Miami.
What can I really say about the auditions? It was the usual blend of good, so-so, great, “I just wanna be on TV”, and delusional. Happily, there seemed to be less of the latter two than in past years, but who knows if that trend will continue? We’ve plenty other cities to hit before we head over to Vegas.
Mary is MIA (both the abbreviation and the person), and we’ve got Adam, Sonya, and Jason Gilkison rounding out the judges’ table. Nigel is, of course, ever present and still fucking pervy as hell.
Come back later this weekend to read the full recap and we can talk about Mia’s tears, whimsical dancers, and brain matter. Yum.
100 Questions: Chooch
Sandwiched between repeats of “The Office” & “30 Rock”, was a new NBC sitcom, “100 Questions”. At the start of the show, a young, lovely, dark-haired woman sits down across from this man with a clipboard. When she speaks, she has a slight British accent. It’s a dating service & Charlotte is there to find her soulmate. When she asks why she had to come in person, the counselor tells her, “It’s to prove you’re not lying about your weight.” “Oh… you might want to change my….” “I already did.” He informs her she will have to take a 100 question compatibility test & her first one is “What brings you here?” This sends her down memory lane & just what happened to make her seek “more”.
She’s at a Yankees ballgame (we know it’s NYC now) with her boyfriend of 3 months, her slutty, dumb-blonde girlfriend, her insecure Asian girlfriend & two dudes, ones a dumpy, suit-n-tie lawyer & the other is tall, dumb & handsome with a blue finger glove. During a change-over inning, the jumbo-tron focuses on her & her BF. He whips out a mike & puts “a ring on it” and proposes in front of God & all of Yankee stadium. She stutters & balks & blurts out that she just wants to “be friends.”
At a bar (must be their favorite place) they reveal that they were thrown out of the ballgame & she is now known as the “Yankee Bitch” & her rejection remark is all over the internet. This is the running gag thru the remainder of the show, as she tries to get back in touch with this guy because she forgot to give back the ring. A little side story is that the dumb-blonde sets the neurotic GF up with a dude from the stadium, who was painted blue & white. She hasn’t dated in over a year, thinking her BF will “come around”. They point out that they went to his wedding & he’s moved on. Well… seems her “date” is an albino, but it really doesn’t go any further than him being offended by the dumpy lawyer, who thinks he’s a ghost. The two dude-guys are trying to pick up girls with ridiculous pick-up lines. Dumpy gets slapped & handsome dumbass makes them melt with the same line. Are you laughing yet? Nah… me neither….
The final scene is with the handsome, dumb dude & he reveals to her & us all that he’s a rich kid, who’s been disinherited & is now living on the couch of his BF & has no job or money. Hilarious! zzzzzz….
Basically, this is a”Friends/How I Met Your Mother” combo. Next week, her dating counselor will ask another question & off we will go again….. the only funny one is the dating counselor & we don’t see enough of him.
