Friday nights are very important to us. The work week is done and it is time to kick back. The phrase â€œThank Goodness Itâ€™s Fridayâ€ is so loved that it has inspired both a night of sitcoms on ABC and a chain restaurant.
Sure, ABCâ€™s TGIF included such terrible shows as Full House, Family Matters, and Dinosaurs (no disrespect to Jessica Walter), while the restaurant serves overpriced hamburgers with fakes smiles. In spite of this, people still love Fridays.
Not me though. This past Friday brought me into direct contact with Ghost Whisperer starring Jennifer Love Hewitt. On a scale from awful to terrible, this show was terriful.
The show tries to come off as scary, which is fails at. Inanimate objects with human qualities have not been this cheesy since Evil Dead 2, which desired to be cheesy. All of you that are freaked out by breathing footballs are just tools of the night light manufacturers.
The show did teach me one thing. Comas last only a couple of minutes. You may have terribly contrived dreams during your coma, but it will not last too long.
In a sad statement about television, Trading Spouses: Meet Your New Mommy was better than Ghost Whisperer.
Trading Spouses had actual conflict and emotion, while Jennifer Love Hewitt only flashed her giant teeth or pretended to cry.
There are not that many shows with British rocket scientists who like raves and getting uptight people drunk off of their asses. Then, after the uptight people have survived their terrible hangover, they take them to play paintball.
Both Trading Spouses and Ghost Whisperer are designed to have interesting characters and conflict, but only one of them succeeds.
That was my Friday night. Pretty cool, huh? How was yours? Maybe I can live through the awesome things that you did.
