Sucks And The City

5 06 2008

For a week now Mr President has been biting his tongue but no more, the time has come where he simply has to say what he has to say. He realises the following words will likely anger many of his readers, but he suspects it will polarise views, with as many reader agreeing with what he has to say. Never one to shy away from controversy, he intends to be his typical forthright self.

He is sick to the back teeth of constantly hearing about and seeing promotional material for Sex and The City. The movie seems to have reignited interest in a TV show that was annoyingly ubiquitous at its peak and seems to be once again. Quite frankly Mr President will pull no punches; it was a lousy TV show. He recognises that some people found it enjoyable (simple pleasures for simple minds) and they’re entitled to.

What’s not so acceptable is to shove it down everyone’s throat. Everywhere Mr President goes he’s faced with yet more promotion for the film, whether it’s re-runs of the TV show, advertising the movie or the spate of new products “inspired” by it that have suddenly popped up on the market. There wasn’t even this much promotion of Iron Man, a film Mr President has seen twice already and would gladly see again.

In fact it managed to be even more entertaining the second time round, and despite not having seen the Sex And The City movie (and he won’t be watching it anytime soon), Mr President is going to go out on a limb and guarantee that Iron Man is a million times better than that pile of rubbish. In fact he’ll even say that if you disagree you’re not only wrong, but a retard who shouldn’t be allowed out of the house unsupervised.

Can you sense the vitriol? Good. Mr President is fine with people being too stupid to recognise that rubbish for what it is, where he draws the line is when people impose their idiocy on the rest of us, the right-thinking members of society. Before someone suggests that this is an attack on women, not every woman loves that show.

People who hate the show simply want some respite. Is that too much to ask?

Once again you are correct. I especially like the, “…and despite not having seen the Sex And The City movie (and he won’t be watching it anytime soon), Mr President is going to go out on a limb and guarantee that Iron Man is a million times better than that pile of rubbish”. I couldn’t agree more.

Speaking for all of womanhood, which I do – Iron Man was great, we saw it the other night. SATC, well, I never could even stand a single episode. I’ve never met a girl that girly. I don’t get it or the sensation of a movie made after a tv show made after a book.

Wow, a lot less vitriol than I expected. I’m actually surprised by just how many women agree with SomeGo. My sister says she hates the show, all her friends hate the show, even the really girly girls she knows at Uni hate the show. Who, then, I ask, DOES like the show?

My sister isn’t the most girly of girls (despite her massive collection of shoes) so I wasn’t sure if she was the exception or the rule.

How is it then that the show was so popular? Or was that a myth?
