And if that's successful, they're doing a drama based on "Rape Me".

Oh, wait, NBC has that. They call it "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit".

Don't they have to wait for another station to come out with a "More Than A Feeling" sitcom first?

When Guns n Roses came out, that's when everyone took off the make-up. Nirvana's meandering 5 chord whinefest was just what everyone attributed it to.

kab: So it's a show about an absurdly overrated band, who's singer decided that simply no longer writing wasn't a good option for getting out of the limelight?

But enough about Creed...

hubcity: The producers originally used the working title "Come As You Are", but found that the concept was already in use for a work-in-progress sitcom called "Eighties".

/u mass?

That was educational.

RatMaster999: That would be the evil wizard, Bargle, and the cleric Aleena.

And apparently Aleena was a bottlevial blonde.

what about a tee vee show about someone who spends their life, and each episode, watching inane, ignorant foolishness on a box, on a screen, or on a cellular telephone, complete with the associated vapid interaction associated with such media, in between having the life sucked out of them for eight hours a day (10 with the commute) and perhaps the occasional desperate fapping or unsatisfactory, and therefore humorous, social entanglement? As the season progresses, the antihero or anti-heroine grows ever more pale and zombiefied, a mere dry husk of a human being who only speaks in the gray monotone like the smiths but not as whimpy and then finally snap and going on a murder rampage of death. the next season starts with the main character in the shower like nothing happened but you could add your own supporting lovable cast of miscreants every year knowing that they would all die in the aforementioned murder rampage of death in amusing and satisfying ways.

it would need a laugh track but I bet we could sell lots of soap

Mentalpatient87: Oh, and from the writers of Big Bang Th-

*laugh track*


I'm glad they include a laugh track on that show. I wouldn't know when I was supposed to laugh without it.

"The multicamera comedy revolves around an 18-year-old budding entrepreneur," describes the Hollywood Reporter, "who forgoes Harvard and instead opts to launch a multibillion-dollar Internet company from his garage with the assistance of his sister, best friend and his 1990s indie-rock parents."

Yes, that's exactly what I think when I hear the lyrics "A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido, 'EY, 'EY, ayyyaya ayyyayya ayyyayayya ayyayayaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa."

Which in turn was based on a deodorant targeted at teens.

Cue the Xzbit + Irony + Alanis Morisette please. In that same order.
