It took me quite some time to figure out how to start this (tardy) review. We end up here:
Dear Diary: Here we are. Episode Six: Car Trouble. I considered using this space to debate to what scale of car trouble the experience of watching this Big Shots episode was most akin. Was it like getting in a fender bender, where maybe your rates rise but you’re not hurt? Or was it like a rear-ender where you’re fine, but your car is toast? I settled on this one: exactly as it happens in this episode, the meta-experience of watching this episode was like sitting in the garage with the motor running, thinking of all the cumulative failures of your life, waiting for the sweet final embrace of death. Not painful like ripping your fingernails out or holding your genitals over an open flame, but completely senseless, tragic, and pathetic all the same.
What can I say except Thursday’s on ABC got it goin’ on!
