02:04 pm - on watching the boob tube....
Stacked on Fox
Starring Pamela Anderson.
Ok, time for a short shameful confession:

So last night, in the midst of boredom and the pursuit of mind numbing entertainment before going to bed, beststephi and I watched Pamela Anderson's new show, Stacked. We thoroughly enjoyed it. I laughed almost the entire time it was on. I feel very dirty now.

It was honestly very good. I mean, it wasn't hamlet or anything, but for a sitcom full of goofy sexual innuendo (the most classic of all sitcom plots), it was really quite good. The one-liners were funny, the writing was decent, the acting was surprising non-suckful, there was just enough slapstick and it had Christopher Lloyd in it as a crazy old scientist, which is a win any day of the week.

Oh, and you know, if she's your type, I guess you can stare at her boobies or something too. Well, in as much as they are presented on a primetime show about people who work in a book store on Fox.

Has anyone else seen it? What did you think? Or should I just go hang my head in shame and join all those people who liked Baywatch?

Current Mood: [mood icon] amused

I've been watching it. Yeah, it's not too bad.

Lloyd: You know what you should sell? TANG!
Woman: *gasp*
Other guy: No no! He meant the orange drink.

hee hee hee...

so that was just last night. Have all the episodes been that funny? I imagine there are a lot of boob jokes. Does it get tiring after a while?

There's only been four episodes so far. I think last night's was slightly better than usual, but the other three were still pretty good.

And Christopher Lloyd really does add to the show.

well, I'm thinking I will DVR it again next week and give it another shot. If only because its in HD.

Actually, they've been focusing more on Pamela's wild party-all-night lifestyle rather than the boob jokes.

yeah, I got a tad of that from last night's episode but I wasn't sure if that was really part of her character or just a throw away thing. So do they ever show said party life or is all just off comments in the book store?
[User Picture]From: happysteve Date: May 12th, 2005 - 01:39 pm (Link)
all in the book store.

And are the boob jokes more or less amusing than the flat-chest jokes on Will & Grace?
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: May 12th, 2005 - 01:30 pm (Link)
see, I tire of Will and Grace as well. Its an ok show, and though I've never really followed it, what I've seen of it has had a definite aura of "every show being the same"

I think Pammy is a lot funnier than people give her credit for.

Even that silly detective show she had had its moments.

DAMNIT! If I had known it'd have Cristopher Lloyd, I'd have gladly watched it.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: May 12th, 2005 - 12:32 pm (Link)
well, its not like its been cancelled (yet) you can try watching it next week. Or you could come check it out at my place, if you really care. I did DVR it.

I've seen it on BitTorrent if you are into that.

I was curious about that show, but not curious enough to actually *watch* it...I don't watch TV generally speaking. I read about the show on abe's book site; the show apparently is creating quite a stir in the bookselling community. I wonder if it will have any effect on book sales?
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: May 12th, 2005 - 12:33 pm (Link)
how much of a stir? A good stir or a bad stir? Are book selling girls rushing out to get implants and bleaching their hair blonde?
[User Picture]From: sugarpinkrose Date: May 15th, 2005 - 11:19 am (Link)
"good stir or bad stir?" Hmm, the jury's out on that one. I've heard lots of "supposed" pros & cons.

Book selling "girls"? heh heh! Most of the booksellers I'm acquainted with, online & off, are baby boomers- I seem to be in the minority as a genXer. I could be wrong about that. Also I'll be sure to let you know if I see a trend towards bigger bra sizes & big blonde hair in the book community! So far, no rumors to support it but ya never know.

Personally, I am really happy & relieved to hear the show doesn't suck. Books seem to be a lot less popular than they were even 10 years ago- and if this show does help to renew the general public's interest in books then I'm all for it.

I swear I watched like a few minutes of it last week, and then realized something better was on. But I don't like Pamela Anderson at all, so I don't think I could even give it a shot. She irritates me in the same way Carmen Electra does.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: May 12th, 2005 - 01:28 pm (Link)
see, I never much cared for Pam either. Thus my surprise when I didn't hate the show.

But why don't you like Carmen Electra. *snif* we might not be able to be friends anymore. ;-)

Hmmm, Christopher Lloyd. And there's really nothing on Wednesday nights, anyway. But boobosity Pamela Anderson is likely to be annoying.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: May 12th, 2005 - 01:27 pm (Link)
see, that's the thing. She really wasn't. At least not for the one episode I have seen so far. The character was quite tolerable and maybe even a little clever. Surprised the hell out of me.
