Bad Girls' Bit Gag Scene -- Opportunities Lost


Hmmm, tastes like chicken. Well, rubber chicken.


This Thursday (August 21, 2008) episode 5.1 of Bad Girls aired for the first time in the US on the Logo Channel (i.e., the gay channel, no I'm not kidding) and of course I had to record it and watch it. And even though my DVD somehow screwed up, I did managed to catch tle last 20 minutes of the ep.

As you can see, they did a great job of presenting the bit gag visually, but it left much to be desired in other respects, so much so that I was reduced to using colorful metaphors to express my disappointment. I could have written my response as a post for this blog, but chose instead to write it as an article on my website since I wanted to reference it from my article on Bad Girls."

You can read my outraged screed abuot the bit gag scene here.

You took one for the team

I can tell because you're aware of the plot. I couldn't take 5mins of this foolish show.

It makes the wife's retarded decorating shows watchable

"WISH YOU COULD WATCH?
don't ya think EVERY LAST FUCKING VIEWER OF THE SHOW wishes they could have watched"


Humourous, recall when this show started airing they gave the CWL types the alernative sexuality warning, same as they did for US show (Oz??)

Why bother building it up then?

It was indeed noble of me to watch a couple dozen episodes of the show, but like I said, I had writing stuff around to keep me busy during the long, long breaks between interesting things happening. Just sitting and watching it would have been incredibly dull. Still, you gotta admit, that bitgag scene gave me MAJOR ranting material.

I don't know why they bothered. There are lesbian couples, but all they've done that I've seen is hold hands, hug one another, and on rare occasions, show up in the same bunk together (but just talking, not doing stuff.) Also some kisses. Hell, Bikini Chain Gang was a LOT more explicit than anything on Bad Girls, and I bet it didn't have any alternative sexuality warnings.
