As Fall Premiere Month continues, so do the Trailer Trashes of our Lives. Today we’re taking a look at Better With You, The Defenders, and Undercovers.
Better With You, ABC
HoneyGangsta: I like the idea of looking at couples in different stages of their marriages. We could use some examples besides the Kardashian family.
Chance of Success: 35%
Cherie: Stupid married show. I didn’t watch the trailer, I’m just guessing. Either way, bleh.
Chance of Success: Some will like (chooch) some will hate(me)
Flipit: Rich intelligent woman marries dumbshit and her family isn’t having it. The big joke in the preview is that dumbshit doesn’t know the difference between I and me. I’ll be better with you cancelled.
Chance of Success: There are a lot of people in this country who don’t know the difference between I and me. 90%
If you want a good comedy with terrible English petition VH1 to bring back Rock of Love Bus.
St. Claire of Assisi: I’ve watched this trailer like seven times and still can’t remember anything about it. The main guy’s primary problem with the in-laws is not knowing grammar? Why can’t they at least make him a different ethnicity?
Chance of Success: Ratings-wise, 43%. Spiritual, .0021%
SexyPanda: Probably terrible.
Chance of Success: 40%
Bbitz: Ugh. No.
Chance of Success: 0%
PottyMouth: Note to the trailer editors: I am not fooled by you tacking an annoying laugh on the end of the trailer. This looks more painful than root canal. That reminds me, I have to call my dentist.
Chance of Success: It will last and it will annoy me every time they show a commercial for it.
The Defenders, CBS
Bbitz: “Boston Legal” + “Vegas” + the fat kid from “Stand by Me” + “the funnier Belushi’s brother” = BRILLZ!
Chance of Success: 10%
PottyMouth: When most of the trailer is spent interviewing the actors about how great the show is, you know the show is a piece of shit.
Chance of Success: This show should last just about as long as an ice cream cone in the Vegas sun.
HoneyGangsta: This actually looks entertaining – the average guys who passed the bar exam for kicks and now defend Vegas thugs? I can get with that. Vegas wouldn’t be the same without the thugs. And I’m thinking of taking the bar exam for kicks myself.
Chance of Success: 55%
Cherie: People will love it at first and then throw rotten fruit at the tv.
St. Claire: Every other show, they focus on court cases from ONE side of the aisle. But the law is too complicated to break it down to black-and-white. That’s why we do BOTH.
Chance of Success: 30%
SexyPanda: Oh, it’s like Vegas. Which I didn’t watch. Also didn’t watch this trailer past 20 seconds.
Air punching = wacky
Flipit: Jerry O’Connell tells us how wacky these lawyers are and I immediately reach for the remote. Yes, you’ll have to stare at The Other Belushi and Jerry O’Connell for an hour a week, but it takes place in Vegas so there will be plenty of giant saline boobs and short skirts. The big joke in the trailer (besides Belushi still working) is when Jerry O blows a kiss to the prosecutor, trying to gross him out with gayness. UGH. Have all the writers in Hollywood been gassed?
Chance of Success: 100%
Bbitz: “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” with black people! AND it looks better! Except for their aggravating sidekick. He’s the -5%.
Chance of Success: 95%
HoneyGangsta: Isn’t this how Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got together?
Chance of Success: 25%
Flipit: This preview makes me feel bad for Jennifer Aniston all over again. JJ Abrams is usually pretty good, but if I watch this entire series and find out they’re in purgatory I’m gonna hurt someone.
Chance of Success: 60%
PottyMouth: I will watch anything that J.J. Abrams creates. It doesn’t hurt that Boris Kodjoe is looking mighty fine with his shirtless self.
Chance of Success: Mmmmmmm…….I’m sorry, were you saying something? SexyPanda: Hooboy, that is an attractive man.
Chance of Success: 60%
