Slow Blogging- Stupid Shows

October 18th, 2012 Posted in Libtards, ramblings, WTF

Not because there isn’t a lot of things going on to blog about – there’s a crap-ton of stuff from the so-called ‘debates’ where the moderator sides with Obambi to protect his precious little hide, to all kinds of stuff going on around the Instinct household like having to completely redo my computer after the drive my OS was loaded on decided to kill itself with a whimper.

Nope, the reason is that I just haven’t gotten around to it.

So, to get back into things I am going to talk about something that I saw a week or so ago that almost made me want to shoot my TV in disgust.

The wife likes shows like “The Vampire Diaries” and “Lost Girl” (thankfully she hates the entire “Twilight” series and keeps hoping that Edward will find his head firmly attached to a steak a la Vlad the Impaler style) and a new show was starting called “Beauty and the Beast”  I figured it was some rehash of the old show from the 80’s and she wanted me to watch it with her – yeah, I did because that’s what husbands do.

Anyway it starts off exactly the way you would expect.  We see get introduced to the main character whose car has broken down and mom has come out to help her – this is how we learn that dad isn’t in the picture at all – they get attacked by some bad guys and mom is killed, main girl starts running into the nearby woods and when all seems lost she is saved by a blurry figure (she hit her head falling) and bad guys are ripped into small bits.  OK, fine. I figured maybe this time they are going full werewolf instead of the original story where the guy is a beast all the time.

Fast forward a few years and now main character is a tough cop and martial arts expert. She finds hair at a crime scene that matches hair at her moms murder.  She calls the Feds and when they meet her, they try to kill her and once again she is saved by the beast guy – and here is where it gets even stupider than it already was – turns out beast boy was a doctor who after 9-11 (yes, they use footage of the towers as part of his background story) joined the military – and went enlisted – because he was so angry that “I wasn’t thinking clearly”.  So once he is in, he is SUCH a bad ass that he gets picked up for a sooper sekrit project to make him even better “I should have asked more questions, but I was a soldier, I did what I was told”.

Anyway, the evil military merged his DNA with animal an now when he gets angry he turns into a beast. He and a bunch of other guys they did the same stuff to were part of a special unit that did all sorts of terrible things until the military decided that they were a liability and tried to kill them all – only our hero escaped and is now being hunted by shadowy government organization.

Yeah, crappy writers can’t come up with an original idea so they go with the “evil military experiment” crap and how everyone in the military is A) some kind of mindless drone and; B) a hard core killer with no remorse at all.

Why is it we never see a storyline about some douchebag hippie working in a lab at Berkley who they do experiments on to help combat global warming – and when he discovers that Global warming cooling climate change is all BS they try to kill him?  It would be just as accurate at the other crap.

In short, this show should have never even made it off the cutting floor.  I could go full rant, but I just don’t feel like it.  It’s not worth the energy it would take to type it all out.
