You mean 'psychotic visions', right?

I was going to jokeingly ask for royalties, but I doubt this show will actually make any money.
 
2013-02-20 09:27:43 AM  
Why don't they ever bring back or remake good shows, like 'BJ and the Bear'? Now there's a concept I can't get enough of, a man and his monkey.

He has an ocular disorder that causes him to have horrifying and visually stimulating anxiety dreams and hallucinations.

Sounds awesome.

I can count at least 5 reasons not to watch that show contained in just those 2 sentences. Impressive.

So is he going to show us how to clear our body thetans without having to pay our life savings to the Church of Scientology? Boy are they going to be pissed.

Let's not forget Supertrain.

I don't bother with shows about psychics.  I guess I'm just disillusioned after Dionne Warwick and her psychic friends couldn't forsee their own bankruptcy.

He can cross me off his list, of people who will watch that show.

With today's CGI we can finally do Automan justice.

b2theory: Isn't he a $cientologist?


Xenu is Scientology's version of Satan, so that headline doesn't make any sense.

And way to go with that whole "replace the S with a $" thing. Sooooo original.

Bottom line: Farkers suck at anti-Scientology humor/commentary. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for mocking the cult, but this is like fourth-grade level satire.

I was at a party a few years ago with some folks who worked on 'Earl.' They said they kept hoping for an episode where Earl gets laryngitis because it would mean Jason wouldn't talk.

It cost $80 million dollars to shoot.

Huh, based on a british series with Clive Owen.

I think I'll track that one down instead.

I believe this. The outtakes from anything he's ever done make him look like a douche. It is not really that funny to spout nonsensical gibberish and laugh because you flubbed your line, but that's all he does, over and over and over. I feel for the poor crew thinking: we are never getting out of here.

Don't be exactly half of an 11 lb black forest ham, Jason.
 
2013-02-20 11:20:17 AM  
New? No, they're just finally making a spin off series to the 1973 TV movie "Baffled".

How does that guy continue to find work?  Every single line is delivered as if he's reading off cue cards.

A) Lighten up Francis.

B) Welcome to Fark

/just about covers it
 
2013-02-20 01:20:25 PM  
Well, that's only slightly more original than the tired old "Im a psycic who can see the last two minutes of a dead persons life!"  plot.

 Pass.

Contrabulous Flabtraption: A show about a policeman!? Why hasn't this been done before?


Wasn't he in already a cop show post-Earl? Aired on some obscure cable channel? He was a cop who also played guitar a lot? Set in someplace like Memphis? Cancelled after one season?

This ringing any bells with anybody? Or did I just hallucinate it?

No you are not hallucinating.  it was called Memphis Beat

I waited for years for the internet to become popular so someone could tell me the name of that show, it was a true masterpiece.

Yeah, I'd hate for it to go the same way as The Terra Universe Enterprise Chronicles or The Fairly Stone Riches Leverage Life.  It was totally unfair the way the new network execs with no love for the core programming put those shows on a death-slot shifted hiatus with no advertising and unfairly compared reality budget ratings to kill them then filled the slots with Paranormal Redneck Animal Wrestling Trucker Build-Off and Amish Chef Rehab Pawn Fishing Wars.
 
2013-02-21 12:00:34 AM  
'Scuse.  I meant "The Fairly Stone Riches Leverage Life Daisies"

My bad.


Notice I didn't mention Life On Firefly?  Wouldn't want the haters to invalidate my entire point just because of that one mention.
