@ Vaz: ......what?

Can someone translate for me? I feel like I’m watching Euro-trip…

Sod Geordie Shore, for pure, unadulterated retarded scum you need The Only Way Is Essex.


How have these people lived as long as they have without licking a plug socket or experimenting with bleach cocktails

- Run away in a stupid fashion e.g not asking for help from anyone on the street and not calling the police, ever.

- Never making intelligent decisions or doing what they are told e.g. "Tell no-one" means they immediately tell someone, or "Stay here" meaning they instantly have to run somewhere else.

- If they're not the helpless and feckless heroine, then they're the evil and scheming enemy.

I know it's not a new thing, but God DAMN this is a bit ridiculous.

Has anyone seen an American show that is not exclusively about women where the women are equally capable as the men, make smart decisions, and generally behave in a competant and effective way? I really can't think of one. The closest I get is the X-Files, and even then Scully always needed rescuing a hell of a lot more than Mulder...
Its drama man.

You add realism to tv shows and you have a boring show.

There's nothing dramatic about someone calling the police instead of running blindly in panic.

I agree though -tv is sometimes hard to stomach when tards are doing completely the opposite of what is sensible.

Just do what i do.. watch sport and documentaries. Fuck drama.

Despite the dodgy American Accent Ginger Lewis has still failed to master, I've become a fan of Homeland. Reminds me of Generation Kill - and the blonde CIA bint he nailed is quite good - combining both power driven career woman and "still woman" woman quite well, without coming across as the blonde one in Bourne 3.

@CPT Killjoy, despite living in the UK, there are subtitles on Geordie Shore so that we can understand it - and I'm scouse, so that's bad. Feeling like I need to get the combover though. Ricky looks so hot with it *has a little sex wee*.

I agree on the Walking Dead comments, I was close to shouting at the TV at times due to the stupidity of some of the female characters.



Find them and cleanse them with FIRE!!!
This. Oh god this. I forgot that show, but its one of my favorite shows ever.
