Following the Honey Boo Boo South Park episode, I got curious of what 2013 has to offer in terms of American TV shows. If America is interested in the disgusting daily life of a fat redneck family and their abomination of a daughter then I can only imagine what horrors will follow.
My research led me to a few titles that caught my eye. I don’t have the time and patience to sit through any of these but I have to admit that I am quite intrigued by some of the upcoming/currently airing TV shows. How do I explain myself? It is way too disgusting but if I turn away I will feel as if I’ve missed something. Without further ado, here are 3 TV Shows currently airing/coming in 2013 that look way bad.
1. The Sisterhood (TLC)
Premise: This show follows the lives of several preachers’ wives as they cope with their daily agenda. Basically, you get to see how 5 black women argue about things nobody really cares about like God and stuff.
I don’t know who would watch this. Why would anyone watch this? How is this good television? No words can describe how confused I am because of this. How such a show was green lighted in the first place remains a celestial mystery to me. Watching and listening to these women will probably give me diabetes.
2. The Killer Speaks
Premise: Actual convicted felons will talk about their crimes step by step in “chilling details”.
This show looks way too staged. However, if you feel arousal listening to murder stories then this should be a goldmine to you. Gross.
3. Ghost Mine (The SyFy channel… <- ah-ah!)
Premise: A supposedly haunted mine is being investigated by two paranormal researchers.
Inspired by Scooby-doo, the SyFy channel will try to catch your attention with shaky camera, poorly edited dark shots, and people debating over whether a mine is haunted or not based on flimsy evidence. How can this not work?
However, I stumbled upon some titles that look quite promising. I think I will have no problem sitting through an episode of:
4. King of the Nerds (TBS)
Premise: Fellow nerds will compete to win a prize of $100,000 and the victor will be crowned King of the Nerds.
These people speak our language. The only problem is that Scadi is the current king of all nerds and I have no idea how are they going to settle this.
5. LA Shrinks (BRAVO)
Premise: The series follows the daily professional and personal lives of three Los Angeles-based shrinks.
This is genius. Listening to other people’s crazy stories will make me feel so much better about myself. But seriously, this title looks really promising.
6. Immortalized (AMC)
Premise: Creative and competitive taxidermy. Each episode one of four highly regarded immortalizers will face off against a challenger. They will have to create a piece and judges will… judge how they did. “No Guts, All Glory.”
How does one even get into taxidermy? We assume that a sick mind is one of the main requirements when getting involved with the art of stuffing dead animals with… whatever they stuff them. Come to think of it, taxidermy is quite artsy, geeky and creepy at the same time. The idea of this show sounds quite original in my book and the cast is very interesting as well. I hope I will have the chance to see a few episodes.
