tvone breakfast – where language goes to die..
..i hadn’t seen it for awhile – and it really is nerve-wracking/fingernail-biting television..
..as you watch the male co-hosts’ ongoing battle/wrestling with the (seemingly ever-elusive) english language..
..and suffice to say – christie usually loses..(despite the other characters in this sorry mess doing all they can to help/prompt him…)
..and you have to keep your distance – as watching him serially um!/ah!-ing/searching for the bleeding obvious – can – if you let yrslf get too involved – have you suppressing urges to voice expletives at the screen – ( never a healthy-sign..)
..and ya hafta say – if henrys’ effort is like a chipmunk on a meth-bender – turning up on yr doorstep @ 6.00 am..- the pace of the whole tv one show is funereal – at best..
..it plods along..it just plods along..
..and you have old-pete there – representing the buttoned-up-cardigan crew out there –
..push his buttons/let him loose – and you get a reactionary talkback-rant..guaranteed ‘harrumph!’s thrown in for good measure..
..the female co-host does the best she can – with christie – almost like a seeing-eye-dog for the blind..trying but mainly failing to stop him from bumping into the furniture/getting lost..all of the time..
..there’s the rictus-grinning/far-right business-person – with her cheery ayn randian prescriptions for what ails society..
.and the weather – so so much weather – i haven’t added up the percentage of time they spend/waste on this..
..information that could be imparted in seconds – takes on lord of the rings proportions/faux-gravitas..
..will that weather-guy ever get to mordor..?..no..no he won’t…
..and i think christie may be a virus – the sports person was stricken with word/concept-loss – and the words she was grasping for..?..’try of the year’..(!)
..now with the tvone breakfast show you can sometimes strike gold – that is when the female co-host is away – and christie and the ayn rand acolyte work/run the show..
..now that truly is trainwreck television of the highest order..
..i swear you’ll be biting yr knuckles..it’s like having to watch two people drowning..
..and being unable to do anything to help them..
..and for fans of the trainwreck-genre – it rarely gets better than this..
