Do you really think a strained premise like this will pull through?
 
2013-02-09 12:38:12 AM
Considering how much weight she's lost, she should star in Bones.
 
2013-02-09 12:39:50 AM
Shouldn't that be Kristen Stuart?

No, I don't want to see her.

Is this based on the Douglas Coupland novel of the same name? Because the premise was interesting enough for a book, but the surrealism will probably be stripped out if its an ongoing sitcom.

"the comedy revolves around Karen, who after almost two decades, wakes up from a coma to find out she has a 17-year-old daughter from a pregnancy she was unaware of when her life was put on hold."

Christina Ricci is now apparently old enough to play a mother to a 17 year old.

So is David Faustino also starring?
 
2013-02-09 01:10:05 AM
Because David Faustino has only one line I want to hear

Girlfriend in a Coma, followed by Flaming bags of Feces, tonight on NBC!

NBC... We ruined our network for Jay Leno!

It's not rape if she's a vegetable.

You can't rape vegetables,

you can only be raped with them.

His book Shampoo Planet is pretty good too.

Dammit, I'm foiled by my own retardation that his name was Bud. Buck was the dog..... hmmm wait a minute..

32 - 17 = 15. The math works out.
 
2013-02-09 01:28:12 AM
She's been in a coma for almost 20 years and has a daughter who's only 17? Talk about a girl who can't say no...

I get what you were going for, and I did LOL, but the key word is "almost". 17 is almost 20. Again, the math works out.

They finally took her out of the Tupperware?
 
2013-02-09 01:33:28 AM
At first I thought Subby was only kidding..."Girlfriend in a Coma"? That even beats "Man on a Ledge" for most unoriginal title ever.

I was mistaken in thinking he was Buck from that show... and he would deliver the line "I'm Buck, and I'm here to fark" to her comatose body.


/feels ashamed at a failed metahumor
 
2013-02-09 01:35:29 AM
First of all, she is hot. Second of all, the article never mentions the age of her character on the show. Thirdly, she is still hot.

Petite, but very hot.

Show still sounds like a bad idea, though.

Tell that to Chris Hanson.

This show's premise and it's title are telegraphing lame, big time. I hope they have some dynamite writers. What ever happened to that stewardess show she was on?

Mmmm, that top looks like it was applied with a narrow paint brush..

I want to climb mount Ricci, and when I finally reach the summit, I want to set up camp on her fivehead. It's open space will provide plenty of vantage points to relax from and admire her pleasure hills, and if I want to take a swim I can plunge into the deep pools of her eyes....but mostly I'll be spending my days walking from base camp to those sweet, sweet pleasure mountains...

The premise comes from the novel of the same name. It was written by Douglas Coupland, the person responsible for the term 'Generation X' becoming popular. Like him or hate him, he has been a very successful writer.

The tv show Pan Am wasn't picked up for a second season.
 
2013-02-09 02:36:45 AM
the premise is kookie enough to be successful. it will probably be a great show, and they'll pull it after maybe one season. to make room for a reality show with Honey Boo Boo and some pregnant southern teens trying to survive on an island where they scrounge for supplies from a hoarder, a pawn shop and a storage facility.
 
2013-02-09 02:39:58 AM
My biggest question: will they get that as the theme song?

14 episodes is two seasons?

Was the coma caused by her not ducking her giant head down?
 
2013-02-09 03:00:52 AM
Will it involve Manti Te'o?

Agreed.

Didn't Applegate already do this premise/idea?

KrispyKritter: some pregnant southern teens trying to survive on an island where they scrounge for supplies from a hoarder, a pawn shop and a storage facility.


Oddly enough, that sounds a bit like the book 'Generation A' from the same author.

/ok, just a bit

Am I wrong for wanting to fark the every living farking shiat out of her?

It was cancelled a few weeks into its first season.

Are you referring to that show where she had amnesia? Nothing about amnesia in the description of this one.

Pretty impressive, considering it only ran 14 weekly episodes.  But you are right, official notice of cancellation wasn't made until well after the last episode aired.  However its rating plummeted after its debut, and most sites that track new shows expected it to be cancelled after only a few weeks.  It was "defacto" cancelled in November 18th, just shy of 3 months into its run.  Source

I wasn't counting the official notice of cancellation. The last episode aired February 19, 2012.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pan_Am_(TV_series)#Episodes

She qualifies as a butterface??  You must only have models and unicorns where you are from.

For a lot of guys of a certain age, she was the first girl they crushed on when she appeared in "Adam's Family 2" and as they grew up, she grew up...and now they can't shake her, even after the breast reduction and the weight loss....They remember the good times, the good times...

She was in the first Addam's Family too. I didn't think anyone saw the sequel.
